“Women in Comics” celebrates the contributions from female creators in the sequential arts medium known as comics. Since the inception of this American Pop culture, women have always played a role as pencilers, inkers and even writers in the comic industry, but were never known because of their pseudonyms which rendered them sexless and misled the public to believe that they were males. The reasoning behind the pseudonyms was related to gaining employment as a writer or artist. Decades later, women today still are challenged to make their mark in a cartoon world overshadowed by muscles, testosterone and capes. “Women in Comics” unveils the mask of these heroine comic artists, writers, film makers, animators, characters and self publishers. “Women in Comics” is a Bronx Heroes® event and is curated by Ray Felix and Regine Sawyer.
