ComicCon - San Diego - Frenzy Abounds

click to enlarge

Women are still doing it for themselves. And lemonade helps. Here is a quick article from out at the really funny ComicCon convention in San Diego. Organizations like Friends of Lulu (FOL) are helping to promote women in the comic book industry. Women are joining together to foster other women who write in this wonderful genre of literature / art.

Rock your local comic store. In Baltimore, of course, you would go immediately to Atomic Books in Hampden. Ask for the women writer's by name. Buy their work. Read it. You will know enjoyment. Check out the links in the article for a fuller appreciation of the breadth of the graphic novel. If all else fails, go to the ComicCon blog at the Los Angeles Times for a fuller look at the frenzy. Shaky Bacon anyone? You heard it first...right here.
