I spent last Thursday evening as an actor. I’ll be appearing in a small role as a TV evangelist in a new film called Hollow.

Since last July I’ve seen all three of these women perform the song Cherry Bomb (and got to meet two of them). Photos from the actual shows.
Oh, I think I know the plot!!! Given the top-heavy way she’s built, BaneGirl breaks her own back! It’s back to the wheelchair for Babs!

Back in 2004, a pretty awesome thing got started in Aix-en-Provence: les Rencontres du 9e Art. The name means “The Meetings of the Ninth Art”, and it’s a big festival that runs from March through May and celebrates European comics and associated works. What’s the Ninth Art specifically? Comics! They’re largely recognized as a legitimate form of art in Europe. (So progressive! Such a paradise!) Expositions of artwork are held at various locations throughout the town of Aix-en-Provence, and there’s a big weekend-long event in mid-April. The festival itself is pretty popular – in its opening year, 30 000 people attended, and attendance has only grown since. Last year’s festival had 60 000 visitors. For reference, the population of Aix is around 143 000, so that’s almost half of the whole town participating in the festival in some way!
And look, I finally learned how to use “read more”! So do that!
Four years ago when I posted an image from Batgirl and launched this blog, I really did believe there was a way to expand the reach of comics and bring in more readers who want to read about female characters and work by female creators. And from the very beginning my theory was that traditional comics media was a echo chamber that were mostly not very friendly places for female readers.
So from the very start of this blog I suggest that comics grow by looking outside the traditional ways to gain new female readers. I wrote about it. And wrote about it. And wrote about it.
But nothing changed.
But now … perhaps it will.
