Although comics have earned a reputation for being male dominated and in some cases misogynist, women have played a role in the graphic medium from its earliest beginnings. An upcoming documentary entitled “She Makes Comics" will dive into the vibrant, and largely untold, history of the relationship between women and comics. Say it with us: finally!
The movie, directed and produced by filmmaker and comic devotee Marisa Stotter, unearths the rich stories of the many ladies who have always been vital to the comic game, whether as creators, executives, readers or convention-goers. Many key players in the comic game will present little-known oral histories themselves through interviews interspersed throughout the film, accentuated by commentary from experts and scholars inside and outside the comics community.
