More in-depth review of our “Marry, Do, Kill?” panel at new York Comic Con, this time from Ellie Hillis at ActsOfGeek.com!
This post “She Can Fly: NYCC Women of Comics” talks about some of the choice tidbits in the women-in-comics track at NYCC this year, including Red Stylo’s very first panel, “Marry, Do, or Kill? What will it take to shatter female stereotypes in comics?” with Enrica Jang, Jennie Wood, Erica Schultz, Dennis Calero, Andy Schmidt, Claire Connelley, Shaun Noel, A.K. Lovelace and Ellie Pyle.
Of our panel, Hillis writes: “The entire panel agreed that ‘no matter what you’re writing….make the women human. That’s what makes them unique, makes them resonate.’ Some writers will pat themselves on the back and say ‘oh, I wrote a strong female character—but they wrote a male character, just with breasts’ and that’s very frustrating.”
