In this piece, comic artists Rachel Swanson and Abe Lambert talk boobs, comics, and feminism. They're part of a new series called "LadyDrawers" on Truth-Out.org that began as a class at the School of the Art Institute in Chicago taught by Anne Elizabeth Moore. LadyDrawers looks at how comics--and the publishing world at large--are influenced by a lack of women content creators.
For a good read that underscores Rachel and Abe's points about boobs and mainstream comics, check out the comic strip "In Comics World, Women are Invisible--Except When They're Naked" on Truth-out.
The latest in the LadyDrawers series is Pt. 1. of "Why Have There Been No Great Women Comic Artists?"
The audio piece was produced by Lucy Hall, with help from Sarah Lu.
