Why don't more women read comics? When men draw women... Cool World, Roger Rabbit... What kind of marketing strategy works best for women entreprenuers in a "boy's club"? Who's the coolest chick in comics? Pornography and Sailor Moon...What women are making waves creating art? Did comics escape the general suckage of the 90s? Speaking of suckage, we even hit on Twilight. and so much more...
