- Full Description
A non-fiction anthology mixing prose, comics, and illustrated stories on the lives and loves of an amazing cast of female comics creators. Featuring work by Margaret Atwood (The Heart Goes Last), Mariko Tamaki (This One Summer), Trina Robbins (Wonder Woman), Marguerite Bennett (Marvel's A-Force), Noelle Stevenson (Nimona Marjorie Liu & Monstress), Carla Speed McNeil (Finder), and over fifty more creators. Delightfully funny, revealing, naive, poignant tales of love and the comics nerd (girl).
Tales told from both sides of the tables: from the fans who love video games, comics, and sci-fi to those that work behind the scenes as creators and industry insiders. There are gay girls, futile love, comic shop revelations, nerd defense, retreating to the drawing board, fangirl bonding, comic-con adventure...an abundance of short first person narratives of life as a Geek Girl.
Foreword by Kelly Sue DeConnick. "...the baring of souls somehow more naked than the baring of breasts." "...what follows is a brew of pictures, comics, and prose built on a base of Honesty."
Editor and contributor Hope Nicholson (Nelvana of the North, Brok Winsor, Polka-Dot Pirate) has kindly added a special illustated bookplate for this, which she has signed (you can see it here). I think this is a pretty cool book, getting a look into the comics world from the female point of view. I've scanned extra images of the book in order to better show you the wide variety of artwork and themes here.
