Help Support Drawing the Line, a Comics Anthology by Indian Women

Drawing a line

The awesome Nicole Burton, author of the webcomic Eugenie Shark, is also the founder of Ad Astra Comix, a comics company with an emphasis on social justice themes. Ad Astra Comix is currently crowd-funding its first full-length publishing project, Drawing the Line, an anthology of comics created by Indian women during a 2012 workshop.

The Drawing the Line Kickstarter explains,

In the aftermath of high-profile cases in India around sexual assault and violence against women, this anthology takes dead aim at gender discrimination and harassment, but also talks about sisterhood, inter-generational differences, courage, hope, and humor.

The Kickstarter is now in its last three days; Nicole Burton explained to us via email that any extra proceeds will go towards funding comic creators workshops for women and girls.
