Sequart, short for Sequart Research & Literacy Organization, is a highly regarded resource for all things comics. When they have a project, we comics folk listen. Right now, it’s all about SHE MAKES COMICS, a documentary film about the untold history of women in comic books, celebrating female creators and fans alike. Support this exciting project at Kickstarter. At this writing, the funding goal has not quite been reached so every bit helps. Visit the project here.
From the press release:
It’s an exciting time to be in comic books, whether as a reader or as a creator. The market is flooded with diverse voices, artwork, and stories, with creators having more power and prestige than ever before. New readers are rolling into comic shops every day thanks to TV and movie adaptations, comic tie-ins, and good old word of mouth.
In celebration of this modern era of comics, Respect! Films and Sequart (Grant Morrison: Talking with Gods, Warren Ellis: Captured Ghosts, The Image Revolution) are proud to announce their next documentary film: She Makes Comics, a celebration of women in comics as creators, fans, and everything in between.
But we can only do it with your help. Visit the campaign here.
