Why aren't there more women comics?

I mean, look at this brilliant new comic from emerging star Colleen Clark. Gorgeous art with social commentary. Why are we all obsessed with X-Men or super men with super powers instead of real art? Where are the wonder women at?

Colleen Clark sucks.

by Wonder Womanreply 104/28/2013

Why would you say that?

by Wonder Womanreply 204/28/2013

Because it is true.

by Wonder Womanreply 304/28/2013

Women aren't funny.

by Wonder Womanreply 404/28/2013

Why aren't there fewer?

by Wonder Womanreply 504/28/2013

lesbians are there, lesbians are famously hilarious!

Shhh, this is a big secret so I'll whisper it:

Neither are men.

by Wonder Womanreply 704/28/2013

Am I right, ladies? Right? Right?

by Wonder Womanreply 804/28/2013

Who are the ladies?

by Wonder Womanreply 904/28/2013

Ovi, we're the ladies.

Even if we grant that, then that just means they can't write for ARCHIE & PALS or JUGHEAD. But why aren't there serious comics by and for women?

by Wonder Womanreply 1104/28/2013

I'm confused by these replies. Isn't OP talking about comic artists, not stand-up comedians? Cuz there are PLENTY of stand-up comedians that are female (Sarah Silverman, Lisa Lampanelli, Kathy Griffin, Amy Shumer, Wanda Sykes, Chelsea Handler, Whitney Cummings, Margaret Cho, etc.)

by Wonder Womanreply 1204/28/2013

Being an average standup comic is a crappy life, all constant low-budget travel. It's impossible if you're the primary caregiver for children, and few women can find a spouse who'd tolerate that much travel.

Maybe it's more a question of lifestyle than ability.

by Wonder Womanreply 1304/28/2013

What happened to CATHY!!!!!

by Wonder Womanreply 1404/29/2013

R13, what does any of that have to do with this thread? Does she have her own comic book?

by Wonder Womanreply 1504/29/2013

Do your research OP. They're out there they just don't get all the money and mass publishing because big companies find it easier o market to the pre-pubescent horny teenaged male.

by Wonder Womanreply 1604/29/2013

Oh - wait. I see OP is trolling.

Post a picture of an exaggerated 'ugly' female body and watch the gay boys scream. ha ha.

You're hilarious.

by Wonder Womanreply 1704/29/2013

I expect pimply nerds like the OP to know the difference between comic-book authors and comedians, but I guess nerds are stupider lately.

by Wonder Womanreply 1804/29/2013

This thread totally went off the rails when OP didn't specify comic artists or writers as compared to stand-up.

by Wonder Womanreply 1904/29/2013

R19, the OP most certainly did if you actually read the post. It's clear he's not talking about comedians.

by Wonder Womanreply 2004/29/2013

It's because comics have always been for young white males and they want to live vicariously through their male heroes.

psssst. Girls read comics too.

by Wonder Womanreply 2204/29/2013

Vampirella is still the most popular comic magazine. Comixology started releasing the classic Vampirella series in digital form.

by Wonder Womanreply 2307/11/2013

[quote]Gorgeous art

I think you posted the wrong link, OP.

by Wonder Womanreply 2407/11/2013

I used to read Vampirella, but my mom hated me reading it, because it contained naked women, even though I was a gay teen.
