The Womanthology Comics Project!

The Comic Book Listings Blog:

Comics Project!

Womanthology is a Kickstarter Comics project manage by Renae De Liz.

Womanthology is a large scale anthology comic showcasing the works of women in comics. It is created entirely by over 140 women of all experience levels, including top industry professionals such as:

The purpose of the book is to show support for female creators in comics and media. There will be multiple short stories, "how to"s & interviews with professionals, and features showcasing iconic female comic creators that have passed, such as Nell Brinkley and Tarpe Mills. A Kids & Teens section will also be included, showcasing their work, and offering tips & tricks to help them prepare themselves for their future careers in comics. Overall, this is pretty much a huge book showcasing what women in comics have accomplished, and what we are capable of :) We are also hoping that by doing this book, it will encourage a new generation of women to pick up the pencil and create!

Part of what's special about Womanthology is its equal opportunity aspects. Big- name professionals like Gail Simone are paired up with new and upcoming talent to promote opportunity and chances for those newcomers to learn, and give them a stage to show what they can do. For instance, Gail will be paired up with extraordinary new artist Jean Kang! Or for, another example, legendary artist Camilla d'Errico will be paired up with up and coming writer Raven Moore! Check out the Womanthology site for more exciting team ups! Read More.

This "will be" a 300 page, 9x12, hardcover, full-color book. The book is currently in production and is being funded through Kickstarter, which the largest funding platform for creative projects in the world.

Womanthology's current goal is $25,000 and will go directly to printing costs and other fees such as postage/production of rewards.

"Rewards?" I'm glad you ask?

A $1.00 pledge will earn you the unlimited gratitude of over 140 female comics creators, and Your Name on the "Thank You" page of the Womanthology website. While a $15.00 pledge, will earn you a Limited Edition, Hand Numbered, 100 page Black & White Sketchbook of Womanthology art, sketches and ideas, and extra unseen work & interviews separate from the book! And of course, greater pledges earn greater rewards. For a complete explanation of the Pledge/Rewards packages, Click Here.

This is a comics project that I know you're going to want to be a part of.


Update: I have just discovered that Jill Pantozzi (AKA: The Nerdy Bird) owner of the "Has Boobs, Reads Comics" blog, will be contributing to Womanthology. Read her post "Here".
