Reader Appreciation Month

To celebrate our first six months at the end of February, we will be doing a month of reader appreciation.

We’ll be kicking things off with some reader-generated content. As the first Friday of March is also the first day of the Emerald City Comicon (which I will be attending), we’ve decided to dedicate the entire weekend to your picks for your favourite female, female-identifying, or genderqueer comic book characters. Just send us an email with a paragraph or two about your favourite four-colour female and we’ll prepare a three-day comic celebration.

For the other four Fridays in March, we’ll be writing posts based on your requests. If you have a character you’d like to see us cover, just leave a comment on this post. Remember, if your request isn’t written this time ‘round, it’s probably because we already have something planned for them.


  1. Agatha Heterodyne from Girl Genius!

  2. Martha Dane from the H. Beam Piper short story "Omnilingual". Written in 1957, it stars a strong, intelligent female scientist. Given the time it was written, the character is quite remarkable.
