Quantcast

The May PREVIEWS celebrates the many women who work within the comics industry and community, whether it is behind-the-scenes as publishers, editors, or translators or in the spotlight as writers, artists or as strong female lead characters! Throughout PREVIEWS you'll find the "Women in Comics" icon pointing out a deserving title featuring female creators or protangionists. You'll also find profiles of some of comics' most accomplished females here at PREVIEWSworld.com throughout the month, so stay tuned!

We're kicking off this month in a big way with an interview with writer, Kelly Sue DeConnick. The writer got her start in comics by translating Japanese and Korean comics for the American market and moved into the spotlight with her work on Marvel's Captain Marvel and her new Image Comics series, Pretty Deadly. Kelly Sue talks about her own career and the role women play in the comics industry in an exclusive interview.

"Women are WILDLY under-represented both on the production side and on the page. This is not just a comics problem, it’s an cultural problem," DeConnick explains. "Doing away with the myth that women don’t create or read comics would be a great place to start. There remains this pervasive notion that we don’t have more women readers because superhero comics are 90% of our industry in this country and superhero comics don’t and can't appeal to women."

"It’s simply not true. There is nothing inherently masculine about heroism, or the pulp aesthetic or power fantasies — believe me, I’m a five foot tall woman. I can teach any man in any room about power fantasies — I promise. Superheroes aren't inherently masculine any more than opera, Shakespeare or myth."
