Comics are often considered a boys’ club, with male creators telling the story of male heroes to a male audience. Female fans and creators have been gaining more attention recently, but women have actually been an integral part of the medium since its beginnings.
This film celebrates eighty years of female creators telling amazing stories in comics. From early superhero artists like Ramona Fradon to iconoclastic 60s creators like Joyce Farmer, from 80s innovators like Karen Berger to present day writers like Kelly Sue DeConnick, the film lets female creators tell their stories.
