Women Recount Their Struggles and Triumphs in IDW’s Voices That Count Graphic Novel Anthology
IDW has announced that Voices That Count, an acclaimed Spanish anthology, will be available to English-reading audiences for the first time this June. Brought to life by a host of talented female creators, this graphic novel anthology dissects what it means to be a woman in today’s hyper-masculine world.
Voices That Count highlights and uplifts women’s voices, collecting their stories of life, love, and empowerment. Interacting with everything from the realities of gender imbalance in the workplace — through a gender-flipped lens — to toxic beauty standards taking a toll on the body image of young girls, Voices That Count gives women a space to recount their struggles and triumphs.

- “Julio” by Julia Otero and Ada Diez
