This is a wrap up, shout out to the creative Women that were putting in work at New York Comic Con this past weekend. In no particular order here is my Women Crush Wednesday list.
Alitha Martinez leads off the list as writer/artist of Yume and Ever. I’m still a little mad she sold out of a comic before I found her. (The one picture I have of her was used for an article on BlackSci-Fi.com.)
You could have found artist Ashley A. Woods at the Stranger Comics booth promoting her Comic Con exclusive Niobe. If you didn’t get one, hit up the website.
Next on the list is Afua Richardson artist of Genius, an upcoming Marvel project and was a part of the Afrofuturefest table. (Afua on the right with Jamie Broadnax of Black Girl Nerds.)
Holding down the cosplay community was Ivy Doomkitty, she is second from the left cosplaying Professor Snape. Ivy a full time cosplayer and body positive ambassador, spoke candidly on her journey of becoming a cosplayer and the battles she had in dealing with the negative trolls online and at conventions.
Also at the Afrofuturefest table was Julie M. Anderson an amazing artist putting her foot in it, a pun as she was making some super dope sneaker art, my niece is still talking about those sneakers.
Regine Sawyer of Lockett Down Productions and co-Founder of Women in Comics. When she is not organizing panels that promote women and their images in comics, she is writing her own, issue #3 of The Rippers debuted at NYCC.
Rounding out the list is Jamie Broadnax, founder of Black Girl Nerds. Blogger and nerd enthusiast, I was lucky to grab a picture of Jamie as she was super busy moderating panels and interviewing artist for her podcast.
Thank all of you Ladies for sharing your gifts.
