Women in Comics Month
March is Women’s History Month and for the comic book industry that means it is Women In Comics Month. As a companion piece to my editorial Why We Need Women in Comics Month (http://majorspoilers.com/2016/03/14/editorial-need-women-comics-month/), I present you with my Top 5 Current Comics Starring Women.
March has historically been Women’s History Month and in an industry that is placing growing demands on equality on both the creator and story side, the comics community has co-opted March into Women In Comics Month with notable feminist voices inside the community such as Gail Simone and Kelly Sue DeConnick promoting independent female creators across social media in the spirit of awareness. Additionally, pro-Women in the Comics Industry groups such as The Valkyries (an organization of women working in/owners of comic shops), have been highlighted in the media and used their notoriety to organize events and promote female-spearheaded projects.
