It was probably a good day for Marvel to announce that Eve Ewing was the writer on a newly launching Riri Williams: Ironheart series. Kelly Sue DeConnick and many more are supporting another round of the #VisibleWomen hashtag today for women comic book creators to promote themselves, their work, and their availability.
Tweet your portfolio link(s) in the appropriate format below with the hashtag #VisibleWomen *any time on August 20th.*
We will signal boost the tweet AND add your info to our #VisibleWomen spreadsheet, which is available free of charge to any hiring professional in the comic book industry.
The goals of the initiative are to raise the visibility of women in our industry and to get you work.
It’s running from 9 a.m. PST to 4 p.m. PST, and it’s already kicking off large. There are hundreds of entries. Here are just a few, a number from people you know — and don’t.
