She Writes the Strip: 6 Websites about Women and Comics

In celebration of free comic book day and Lena Dunham writing an Archie comic, here are 6 sites about women in the comic biz.

Women Write About Comics (seriously, a lot)

There’s no shortage of comic girl power info in this website. The writers have their creative arms stretched out over blogs, podcasts, and vodcasts. The articles under the heading “Comic Academe” are insightful musings, not only about comics, but also the world connected to them.

Comic Book Grrrl

This sites creator, Laura Sneddon, is clever and well versed in the world of geek. She’s not at all shy in her interpretations of comic culture and she has her own wonderfully distinct voice. It’s a brilliant read coming from, as Sneddon said herself, many different angles.

Team Girl Comics

Team Girl Comics is a collective out of Glasgow, Scotland. Because it’s an open collective, the comics and artwork are interesting and diverse. Readers can access an archive of web comics from their favorite collective creators.

Ladies Making Comics

The creators of this site highlight women in the comic book world by documenting the present, and working as archeologists by digging up history. It’s dedicated to giving a platform to the narrative perspective that women have in comics with the work itself and their biographies.

Ms. Comix

From fashion to industry news, you can answer your comic questions with Ms. Comix. This site features women in the comic book industry by reviewing comics through a ratings system and touching on the entire comic book culture.

Strawberry Comics

Gina Biggs is the head Strawberry Comics creator in this all-girl group of talent. The comics themselves are romantic stories driven by female protagonists. Biggs also has a site of erotic comics for mature readers.
