Hello! We’re back!
Welcome to the brand new Girls Like Comics! The new site is now run by Tara Ferguson and Kerrie Smith, and has a brand new look and brand new focus. Here’s an idea of what to expect!
Tara, who currently works for the comic publishers Titan Comics, and formerly worked in comic retail in Big Bang Comics in Dublin, will be running and organising Guest Articles and Interviews which will feature monthly, and is the public point of contact for the site. The monthly Guest articles will go up during the first week of each month and will feature articles written by women who work professionally in the comic book industry, a mix of female creators, women who work in comics publishing and women who work in comics retail! The monthly interviews, which will run on the last week of the month, will be conducted by Tara and will again feature someone who works professionally in the industry in some way.
Tara will also be writing opinion and feature pieces that will cover various aspects of comics, from working within the industry to reviews.
If there are any women in comics out there, professionals or fans, that feel like there’s something in the industry that needs to be talked about, or something of interest they want to share, you can contact us to write a one-off review, article, feature, or a series of such if you feel the need. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org with your idea and we will get back to you!
Kerrie will be running the small press section, writing monthly articles, and generally holding down the fort on the website to make sure things don’t implode. Kerrie is a small press creator herself, with an award winning collection Girls Like You showcasing a small army of small press artists and colourists, and letters everything she can get her hands on. She also designs books.
Her articles will feature a wide variety of helpful comic creating books, with recommendations for each part of the comic creating team. She will also be covering some skill share works on putting a comic book or web comic together.
If you are a small press creator anywhere out there in the big scary internet, whether it’s print or web comics, we’ll be running a segment on Sundays highlighting small press work. To get in on this free advertising and shameless self promotion, please send submissions, titled Small Press Sunday, to email@example.com and we’ll get in touch to plug your work!
If you enjoy small press comics, be they print or web, and pick up anything you can get your hands on at conventions or online, we’re looking for reviewers. We’d love to hear from you to get the take on small press works in your area. You can also send submissions, marked Small Press Reviews, to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Girls Like Comics are a voice and platform for the women in comics, industry professionals and fans, to share their opinions on the industry, highlight aspects they think are amazing and progressive, and bring attention to problems that we are confronted with!
