UPDATED: Fri, Jul 06, 12:19PM
Seventy-seven years after Wonder Woman was blacklisted for being "[in]sufficiently dressed" women in comics, whether on the page or holding the pen, continues to be a hot topic for creators and fans alike. Comics are moving away from the dichotomy of the damsel-in-distress and warrior princess to depict complicated and compelling female characters who are not defined by their body-type alone Writers LaToya Morgan (Turn, Into the Badlands) and Victoria Rau (Peek-A-Boo), artist Sam Sawyer (Lady Death), comic store owner Jen King (Eisner finalist), owner/creator of Zenescope Entertainment Ralph Tedesco, and cosplayer Fatal Siren will take a look at female representation, going beyond the cover art to explore the history of popular female characters, the current climate of the industry, the balance of gender on and off the page, as well as fan concerns about the future of women in comics.
