Project founder Renae De Liz and other creators from the groundbreaking book sign on Saturday, March 24th from 2:00pm – 5:00pm at Casablanca Comics. Ellen Crenshaw said on her twitter (@etcillustration) that she’d be there!
151 Middle Street, Portland, ME 04101
At WonderCon, IDW Publishing announced the launch of an all-new, ongoing Womanthology comic book series, inspired from Womanthology: Heroic, the hit anthology graphic novel created from an idea by artist Renae De Liz (The Last Unicorn) that went on to be one of Kickstarters most funded comics projects. The new ongoing series, Womanthology: Space! will debut with its first issue in September 2012.
“Womanthology: Heroic was such a big, wonderful experience, and not in my wildest dreams could I have hoped that it would go on to further adventures! I hope that Womanthology: Space! is just the start of a long line of amazing books that further open doors for women in comics everywhere. I hope this will be a continued outlet to have their work showcased and appreciated, and help many take that next big step towards a career in comics,” said project manager, De Liz. “Again there will be all ages and experience levels accepted. This has always been so important to me, as I know first hand how even one show of support can offer so much confidence and motivation in your work. This not only helps aspiring creators gain valuable experiences and a platform to help further careers, but it also allows established professionals to reach out and lend their comics knowledge and know how. I am so glad that the positivity and fun of Womanthology is going further, this time into Space!”
Produced entirely by women, and showcasing the works of over 140 creators of all ages and experience levels, Womanthology: Heroic became a unique experience for unknown creators to work with established professionals and to show the wide variety of work by women in comics. Womanthology: Space! will continue that path and feature work by well-known creators and newcomers, such as Blair Butler, Fiona Staples, Jessica Hickman, Bonnie Burton, Ming Doyle, Stacie Ponder, and many more. Each issue will present three stories, focusing on the theme of the series, “Space”, where creators will use the concept and a sub-theme to inform and inspire their individual story. In addition, the series will also include pinups and ongoing mini-comics by different artists, as well as tips from professionals.
“We’re extremely excited about the ongoing and continuing to showcase the talented and inspiring work by women in the industry at all levels. Whether they’re just starting out or seasoned veterans, these creators all have something to say with their stories and being able to offer them this opportunity just shows that a little idea can make a huge difference,” said editor Mariah Huehner. “Heroic was such an incredible experience and Renae is, without exaggerating, an incredible person and artist who deserves a huge round of applause for making a real difference. We knew Heroic wasn’t the end, so join us in Space!.”
WOMANTHOLOGY: HEROIC ($50.00, 300 pages; 9” x 13”; hardcover) is now available for sale. ISBN 978-1-61377-147-1.
WOMANTHOLOGY: SPACE! #1 will be available in September 2012.

Find more about the Womanthology graphic novel and our talented visitors below!
From Womanthology’s BlogSpot:
Womanthology is an anthology graphic novel created entirely by women for Charity. The purpose of the book is to showcase the works of female creators of every age and experience levels.
The Graphic Novel will majorly consist of many short stories interpreting our theme for this volume; “Heroic”. We’ll also have interviews and how-to’s with some of the industry’s top female pros, as well as talks with young girls who someday want a career in comics.
Our charity is the Global Giving Foundation. They are a website dedicated to helping small charities from all over the world find funding. Once the book is finished, our profits will go to as many of these charities as we can help, focusing on one at a time until their funding goal is met.
Ming Doyle was born in Boston to an Irish American sailor and a Chinese Canadian librarian. In 2007 she earned her BFA from Cornell University with a dual concentration in painting and drawing and has been working as a freelance illustrator and comic book artist ever since. In the past few years she’s depicted the sequential exploits of vengeful cowboys and ghostly schoolgirls for Image, zombie superheroes and demonic cheerleaders for BOOM!, and Inhuman royalty and dapper blue-furred mutants for Marvel. Her first full-length graphic novel, TANTALIZE: KIEREN’S STORY, written by Cynthia Leitich Smith and published by Candlewick Press, is out now.
Nashville-based illustrator Janet Lee has been working as a commercial artist for the past six years. Self-taught, Janet made her first foray into illustration with the Twitter serial, “Diary of a Mad Scientist Garden Gnome” by New York Times bestselling author Alethea Kontis. She followed that by co-creating Return of the Dapper Men with writer Jim McCann which won the 2011 Eisner Award for Best New Graphic Album, received glowing reviews in USA Today, MTVGeek Guide, and was featured in the 2010 Holiday Gift Guides for Publisher’s Weekly, USA Today, and the New York Times. Janet and Jim are working on the sequel, Time of the Dapper Men which will be published Fall, 2012. Most recently Janet has worked for Marvel Entertainment, illustrating serialized adaptations of Jane Austen’s classic novels. Emma and Northanger Abbey.
Janet lives in East Nashville with her husband, novelist Mike Lee, her son Ethan, one very sweet pitt bull named Odie, and one very bad cat named Pye.
Chrissie Zullo was born in Montreal, Canada. In 2008 she graduated with a BFA in Illustration from UNC Charlotte, and got her first job working for Vertigo/DC not long after. She has done the covers for the comics “Cinderella: From Fabletown with Love”, and “Cinderella: Fables are Forever”, as well as interior work for “Madame Xanadu”, and “Fables”. She has also worked outside of comics, illustrating a piece for a “John Carter of Mars” book as well as Star Wars sketch cards. She has been featured in Spectrum: The Best in Contemporary Fantasy Art for the past two years. She currently resides in New York City.
