Image Comics To Publish the CBLDF’s She Changed Comics
Women have been making comics since the medium’s very beginning, but there’s an important story that hasn’t yet been told: how women changed free expression in comics. Comic Book Legal Defense Fund will tell that story in She Changed Comics, a full-color, 160-page book coming out this October 2016 from Image Comics. She Changed Comics was a runaway success on Kickstarter last month, where backers funded the project in eight hours and supported several stretch goals, including teaching guides for middle school, high school, and higher education, as well as a nationwide teaching tour.
Covering female comics creators from the turn of the 20th century to present day, She Changed Comics will profile more than 60 women who transformed the landscape of free expression and expanded the comics artform. It will also examine the plights of women who have been persecuted for expressing themselves through cartoons and feature interviews with some of the most influential women working in comics today. The book will be illustrated throughout, with a professional index and links to additional resources, making it invaluable for educators and fans alike.She Changed Comics
will be an invaluable tool in CBLDF’s ongoing mission to educate people about the value of comics as art and literature.
