To just about all of us here at The Mary Sue, comics make the world go 'round. So, in the spirit of doing work and keeping things awesome, we decided we should go ahead and share some of our most favorite women comic artists of 2016 (and a few beyond).Read More
Interview: Sophie Campbell Talks Wet Moon Vol. 3 On ComiXology and the Awesome Possibilities in Digital Comics
Sophie Campbell is one of the best artists on the planet. Yeah, I said it. From her creator-owned titles like the now-classic Wet Moon, to her work on established properties like Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Jem and the Holograms, Campbell is basically the patron saint of the misfits and weirdos (and teenage mutant turtles), and the third volume of her Wet Moon series arrives on ComiXology this month!Read More
A sitrep from the War on Heteronormativity.
Queer women now have an obvious and growing place in comics, both on the page and in the industry. What is that place though? How are we making it and how far do we still have to go? Several queer creators and other women in the comics industry gave me their perspectives on the issue.Read More
I'm not gonna miss Sophie Campbell's artwork at all! I'M FINE!
IDW's comic adaptation of Jem and the Holograms has been one of the most refreshing reads I've come across in a long time. Writer Kelly Thompson is the queen of making already-existing properties and characters feel like they're brand-spanking new.

Sadly, Campbell's time with the Holograms is at an endRead More

"I was so sick of hiding and exhausted from keeping myself a secret, I felt crushed by it."
As I'm sure you all have noticed, we here at The Mary Sue have been loving the Jem and the Holograms comic from IDW. Kelly Thompson and Sophie Campbell have created an awesome re-imagining of an 80s classic that is both true to the spirit of the original while also adding new elements in wonderful ways. Recently Campbell did an interview with The Advocate about her work on Jem, as well as about how coming out as a trans woman back in March has affected her work in comics.Read More
