The Girl Scouts Create Comics, We Want To Read Them

[View All on One Page]

If you’re a frequent reader of The Mary Sue, you probably already know we’re a big proponent of women in comics, so when we see a potential next generation being taught the trade, we get very excited. Junior Girl Scouts of America Gables Elementary Troop 1320 eared their Drawing Badge at a recent visit to the Comics Library at Ohio State University where they learned about self-publishing, had a history lesson on women in comics, and created their own mini-comic books! Take a look.

    As a former Eagle Scout who’s been highly disappointed with how the Boy Scouts have been doing… everything the Boy Scouts have been doing, I continue to be impressed at how awesome, in many ways, the Girl Scouts appear to be.

    Hopefully this will lead to Big Female Comic Book Makers one day (We certainly could use more of those.).
