By appearances alone, we are like any other women. We shop with our girlfriends, work out at the gym, wear pantsuits to the office. But we are no ordinary women. We are women who love comics. And this legion of comic-book-loving females is more numerous, and more powerful, than anyone could have ever imagined.
Ms.Comix is devoted to introducing women (and men) to other women who read comics, write comics, draw comics, sell comics, and blog about comics. Ms.Comix reviews comic books—from the superhero to Indie—with a special rating system designed to help you chose stories with your desired amount of feminism. Visit mscomix.com for comic book reviews, interviews, articles, and resources for comic writers and artists.
