WOMEN IN COMICS EUROPE

Women in Comics, EuropeI’ve created this permanent page from a blog post I wrote in March 2011 called women in comics in uk/ireland – redux.

At the time I recognised that there were still people asking the question “Where are the women working in comics in the UK and Ireland?“, and if you were unable to point them to a single resource with all the names listed, the assumption was that women weren’t active in the industry in significant numbers.

Thus, it occurred to me to establish a list that includes women writers and artists (colourists, inkers, pencilers, etc.) who work in sequential storytelling in the UK and Ireland. From March 2013 I will be expanding this list to include women working in the industry in Europe.

If you want to be added to the list, please contact me with your name, web site address, and publication you have appeared in. A publication is necessary to appear on the list, and web comics are acceptable.

There is a private Women in Comics, Europe group for networking on Facebook for any woman who is working in the industry. The public Women in Comics, Europe Facebook page is for announcements and promotion.

At this point (March, 2014) there are 247 women on the list.
