Kate Beaton, Carly Monardo, and Meredith Gran Present: Strong Female Characters

Elsewhere on the internet

The aforementioned ladies have developed this witheringly sarcastic take on what Hollywood regularly passes off as a Strong Female Character, expressed in a nugget by Mlawski of OverthinkingIt.com thusly (for a bigger nugget, read the whole post):

I think the major problem here is that women were clamoring for “strong female characters,” and male writers misunderstood.  They thought the feminists meant [Strong Female] Characters.  The feminists meant [Strong Characters], Female.

Do we wish that we could publish everything Kate Beaton does?

Yes. Read all the Strong Female Character strips here.

Susana Polo thought she'd get her Creative Writing degree from Oberlin, work a crap job, and fake it until she made it into comics. Instead she stumbled into a great job: founding and running this very website (she's Editor at Large now, very fancy). She's spoken at events like Geek Girl Con, New York Comic Con, and Comic Book City Con, wants to get a Batwoman tattoo and write a graphic novel, and one of her canine teeth is in backwards.
