It is not just random happenstance that male authors in general, and male comic artists specifically, are published in greater number than female authors and comic artists: it is a matter of opportunity, which is offered more easily and more often to men than it is to women.

Some claim that this preference is a matter of talent (lack of it on women’s part), so every year female comic artists fill twitter with their incredible works, leaving no doubt that the claim is merely a bad excuse from those who believe women are less capable, less artistic, less able to create beautiful art. From those who don’t even bother giving them a chance.

Book Riot has compiled a few of those #VisibleWomen tweets – a random choice, because we couldn’t put them all in here! Check them out and let yourself be mesmerized by the talent of our female comic artists!

Give a shoutout, in the comments, to all female comic artists you love!
