Things We Saw Today: Her-POW! Short Films Remind Us That Women Have Always Been Heroes in Comics
We often talk about female heroes in comics as if they’re a more modern development, but heroines have always been a part of comics history since the very beginning. The producers behind Her-POW! The New Adventures of Vintage Heroines are attempting to create three short films telling the stories of existing Golden Age heroines whose stories are now in the public domain, starting with Ghost Woman, The Woman in Red, and The Veiled Avenger. To learn more about the project, check them out over at Seed & Spark!
