The Cost for Women Working in Comics

divalea:

DEAR MEN IN COMICS:

THE COST FOR WOMEN IN COMICS OF DOING BUSINESS IS TOO HIGH.

You need to help lower the price of women doing business in comics and in comics fandom to only the hard work. Not the hard work plus ducking threats online and off of violence, dodging groping, inappropriate…

I’ve read a lot online about sexism in comics over the past years, and sometimes I get stuck at “what can I do.” And I guess it comes down to “call it out” and “make it unacceptable.” Which also requires awareness: notice the sexism both externally and internally. In other words, it’s not just “those guys” out there that cause problems, it can also be ingrained cultural norms that we have accepted as part of ourselves, even for those of us who like to think we are beyond it.

Last leg of my walk for @comicartfest this saturday.  Above is a rough map of the route to date, all 130+ miles of it.
It’s been a blast.
You can still buy the comic of the first leg at olivereast.com

This map makes it look like Oliver has been tramping through the dark forests.

Notes - City Limits

Aidan Koch has a show up, which you probably can’t go to unless you live wherever it is, but there are photos at the link and a catalog for sale and artwork at a decent price. Some nice pieces available (I grabbed up one for myself).

Ink Brick | A Journal of Comics Poetix

If there was an announcement of this recently I missed it, because I have not been following my social media very closely the past week or two. I think this will be worthy of your attention. You can pre-order the first issue. Edit: Whoops, you can’t pre-order it quite yet.

Also if you are at MoCCA this weekend, you might be able to find work by me at the Grindstone/L.Nichols table (she might have a few MadInkBeard issues) or at the C’est Bon Kultur table (I’m in v.19 of their anthology).

If you are at MoCCA this weekend buy everything you can from the Fremok table. They are my favorite comics publisher. Some recommendations:

-Par Les Sillons by Vincent Fortemps
-Anything by Dominique Goblet (they’ll probably at least have Les Hommes-Loups)
-Ecole de la Misere by Yvan Alagbe
-Lenin Kino by Olivier Deprez
