While more and more female artists are putting up blogs featuring their work, comic books are still quite a man’s world when it comes to being published. This fact compelled Renae De Liz and Jessica Hickman to reach out to other talented women who weren’t getting published. The result is Womanthology, an all-female independent anthology focused on the theme of heroism.
The only issue was funding and thanks to the contributions of 939 backers (and counting) they have more than doubled their goal of $25,000 with 26 days to go. Sitting currently at $54, 476 on Kickstarter the book is officially on its way.
Over 100 artists, writers, inkers and colorists are set to work on this book and just going through the list is enough to make me wish it was available yesterday. From the lovable, goofy style of Katie Shanahan to the dark beauty of Fiona Staples‘ art, to the mind-blowing awesomeness that is Cat Staggs (go check out her Star Wars work, OMG).
The finished product will be a full-color 300 pager which is due out in December. Visit the official website for all the details.
