It is created entirely by over 140 women of all experience levels, from young girls who love to create comics all the way up to top industry professionals.

There will also be features, such as Professional How-Tos, a Kids/Teens section showcasing their works and giving tips, as well as a section dedicated to some Iconic female comic creators of the past, such as Nell Brinkley, and much more.
