The Mary Sue Exclusive: She Makes Comics Documentary Tackles Conventions & Fake Geeks

The Mary Sue is proud to present an exclusive clip from Respect! Films’ new documentary, She Makes Comics!

Available to order now, She Makes Comics is “a film spanning the history of women in comic books as creators, fans, and everything in between.” It features interviews with such names like Trina Robbins, Kelly Sue DeConnick, Laura Hudson, Gail Simone, Louise Simonson, Kate Leth, and yes, (!) The Mary Sue’s Zoe Chevat, Alan Kistler, Janelle Asselin and myself.

After a successful Kickstarter, and anxiously waiting the months in between my interview and now, I’m very happy folks are finally going to see this wonderful project.
