Description - Three Words by Joyce Rae Laing Sarah Neville Indira
Women in Aoteroa New Zealand make comics. They make slick professional comics and homemade crafty ones. some are conventionally attractive and some are beautifully ugly. Some have logical linear narratives and some are cerebral visual leaping swirls. There are big proud comics and small humble ones, widely distributed comics and one-offs, comics that are deep and meaningful and some that are light and silly. There are physical, emotional and intellectual comics, intentional and accidental comics, happy, sad, funny, angry, scary, confusing and wondrous comics. For some it may be a surprise to find so many comics by women, since conventional wisdom would have us believe that comics is a boys' club. But it's not a surprise to us. Although women's comics haven't been represented much in New Zealand history books, they have been found in zines and magazines, tumbles, twitter feeds, shoe boxes, art galleries, painted on old tea trays and brochures, magneted to fridges, tattooed on forearms. And now they're also here. In this book. A whole bunch of them, up front, visible, available and MAKING HISTORY.
