Lea Hernandez has posted a promotional minicomic she drew and Gail Simone wrote back in 2004 to promote Girlamatic.com. (One of Joey Manley’s webcomic subscription sites. Remember those? Modern Tales? And the now-deserted ComicSpace? Ah, webcomic cutting edge 10 years ago. Anyway, Girlamatic is now free and run by Diana McQueen.) The comic is hosted by Charity, one of the Killer Princesses, sorority sister assassins in a graphic novel the two did together, and it has the same frankness the GN does.
Lea asks, “how much have the attitudes about female creators and female-friendly comics changed or not changed?” The answer is sadly obvious, but there is at least one big positive change: There are now many more female voices that are recognized and listened to when the stupid regressive attitudes poke their heads out of their caves.
