She Changed Comics: Teaching Resources Now Available!

scc-cover-webThanks to your overwhelming support, we didn’t just fund She Changed Comics, our resource about the women who changed free expression in comics — we also funded teaching guides for higher education, high school, and middle school. Those guides are now available!

Covering female comics creators from the turn of the 20th century to present day, She Changed Comics profiles more than 60 women who transformed the landscape of free expression and expanded the comics artform. It also examines the plights of women who have been persecuted for expressing themselves through cartoons and features interviews with some of the most influential women working in comics today.

This full-color, 176-page book from Image Comics was a runaway success on Kickstarter, where backers funded the project in eight hours and supported several stretch goals, including teaching guides and a nationwide teaching tour.
