So during the ramp up to NYCC we received a message from a friend of ours here at What’cha Reading and Alternative Mindz. Erica Schultz the writer and creator of the excellent series M3 was participating in the “Women in Comics” panel this year!
I was immediately pumped, Erica is not shy and she isn’t known for holding back her opinions. Add her into the mix with Becky Cloonan and Amy Chu and I knew we were in for a treat!
All three comic creators had great stories about working in comics and who their heroes are, the panel even strayed into comments about marketing to women vs. men. There were some passionate comments but the panel wasn’t too crazy, I think the librarians helped to ground the discussion. And I’m not surprised that they had some great ideas to add as well. I hope you watch and enjoy this peek at what goes on at New York Comic Con. Maybe we’ll see you there next year!
