As someone who had their first comic story published in Womanthology recently, I can relate to what Robert Kirkman is feeling right now at least in a small way. I got to see my story realized in images thanks to Hanie Mohd but I can’t even begin to imagine what it would be like to see it come together before my eyes in real life. That’s what Kirkman got to experience during the last few seasons of AMC’s The Walking Dead but even more so during production of Season 3. That’s when they started building the prison. No spoilers here except the part about the prison being a set piece, which I guess we already spoiled? Whatever, it’s going to be awesome.

I was lucky enough to attend several comic conventions in 2011, the last being New York Comic Con back in October, which meant I was going through convention withdrawal. Big time. For various reasons I had to scale back on the trips this year so I decided my first convention of 2012 would have to be one I never attended. I decided to make the trip to Seattle, Washington for the 10th annual Emerald City Comicon. And now I’m here to tell you all about it.READ MORE

You adored her Wonder Woman gown but it was her DC Ladies in Sweaters that originally got everyone talking. Well here’s my Womanthology artist Hanie Mohd’s last Sweater Superlady, Medusa from Marvel Comics. But don’t worry! She writes she’s only done, “At least till autumn comes around again.” Read on for all the other fabulous things we saw today.READ MORE

The Japanese trailer for The Avengers showed us some fantastic new scenes and once again, Japan has one-uped us. This time with their Avengers poster (at least in my opinion). The U.S. poster was kinda “eh” and had some off-putting scale issues. This one may not be perfect but it does have a really cool concept, showing the team in their “day clothes” and then in their superhero personas. (via MTV) Now, what else did we see today (hint: really cool stuff)…READ MORE

Womanthology might no longer be the most successful comics project on Kickstarter (that honor goes to Rich Burlew‘s recent Order of the Stick project), but for 2011, it was the comics project with the biggest budget, and attracted endorsements and donor prizes from the likes of Neil Gaiman, Jim Lee, Gail Simone, Camilla D’Errico, Devin Grayson, Cat Staggs and Kevin Smith. The project reached its goal of $25k in less than a day, and wound up earning more than $100k in backer funds to print what was intended to be a small self-published run with the now quite interested IDW, the fifth largest comic publisher in the US.
For a project that started as a simple tweet from Renae De Liz and ballooned to a collaboration between more than a hundred female artists, writers, designers and editors, this might be considered enough. With the many faceted goal of showing that there are women in the comics industry, that there are women who read comics, that there are women who want to make comics, and that those three overlapping groups can work together to make more of themselves, that could have been the whole Inspirational Lifetime Movie Story.
But today we get the coda on that story: today, Womanthology: Heroic is available in comic stores and book shops around the country, with all proceeds going to GlobalGiving. Here’s our review:READ MORE
