Womanthology; Massive All Female Comic Anthology!

A Comics project in Portland, ME by Renae De Liz 


ABOUT THIS PROJECT

What is Womanthology & What makes it so special?

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 it's equal opportunity aspects. Large named professionals like Gail Simone are paired up with new and upcoming talent to promote opportunity and chances for those 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 artistCamilla d'Errico will be paired up with up and coming writer Raven Moore! Check out the Womanthology site for more exciting team ups!
