The Big Picture
The world of comic books for years has been male-dominated. That is not to say that only men are reading comics or have buying power, but that men’s voices in the community are often the loudest. Stories about and for women are few and far between. Heroines! is an inclusive community for women writers, artists, and readers of comics to connect and share their love for the medium.
Heroines! is meant to encourage women to get more involved and feel welcome in the comic community. This would include getting readers to participate in online discussions, organize in real life (Ladies Night at comic book stores), and see real change in the way women are written in comics and how the industry treats them.
