Sports meets superheroes in new sci-fi series 'Mara' | Ladies Making Comics | Scoop.it
The Olympics proved inspiring for writer Brian Wood and artist Ming Doyle in their futuristic story of a powerful volleyball player.

Mara Prince is the star of the new Image Comics book, debuting in December, and the poster child for Wood's superhero-meets-sports story. She's the ace player for a national team on an Earth heavily steeped in monoculture — and one obsessed with sports and warfare — but her status quo changes permanently during a game when she discovers she has more than a wicked serve.

Wear It Purple – An Interview With Artist Lindsay Walker » ChronicleChamber

Wear It Purple – An Interview With Artist Lindsay Walker » ChronicleChamber | Ladies Making Comics | Scoop.it

Wear It Purple is a movement that works to battle discrimination toward one of the most misunderstood of minorities; the gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, intersex and queer community. Given the name of the movement there is no better hero than The Phantom to fight this cause and we think you’ll agree it’s something he’d fight for. In this article we talk to an artist who has worked on The Phantom and identifies as transgender – Lindsay Walker.

 

‘Lindsay Walker’ may not be a name phans recognize. This is because up until two years ago Lindsay was Mick Collins. Mick, who had worked on Moonstone’s The Phantom: Ghost Who Walks and Phantom: Generations series, among other Moonstone projects, identified as transgender and not long after finishing her last project for Moonstone took steps to become her female alter ego, Lindsay.

The New Life of the Comic Book by Lucy Knisley | Ladies Making Comics | Scoop.it

I’m lucky to have come of age now, in a dawning age of graphic novel appreciation, rather than when “being a comic artist” essentially meant that you would be stuck in a room for your whole life, churning out Batman pages for a pittance.

Comic Review: Heaven And The Dead City, Volume 1 | Geeks of Doom

Comic Review: Heaven And The Dead City, Volume 1 | Geeks of Doom | Ladies Making Comics | Scoop.it

Heaven And The Dead City, Volume 1 by Raine Szramski. This tale of two cities (Tac and Zivvon) is focused at first on Palus, who watched Tac fall during his youth. Following the turmoil, he entered the priesthood in Zivvon but eventually found his own faith lacking…mostly due to the fact that he was a witch who was taught that his innate abilities were not in line with the teachings of the church. During the first act we see him leave his home in search of answers.

Review: Arthur and Posy #2 – this time there’s GLITTER | The Forbidden Planet International Blog Log | Ladies Making Comics | Scoop.it

I keep coming back to those words on the back cover of issue 1…
“A big glittery gay fairytale fandango about a boy who’s too pretty to be a boy and a girl who doesn’t want to be a girl”.
… that’s still roughly all you need to know. Oh, that and the fact that I really do rather love this comic. And you should really buy it.

Jill Thompson Answers 15 Questions With Julinda Morrow : Sequential Highway | Ladies Making Comics | Scoop.it

Jill Thompson is a very talented person. She quickly rose through the ranks of comic book pros while working with Neil Gaiman on Sandman.
