Kapow – The Women Are On Their Way (UPDATE)

Kapow – The Women Are On Their Way (UPDATE)

Bleeding Cool ran an article yesterday on accusations that the upcoming London convention, Kapow, was a bit of a sausagefest when it came to comic book creators, based on the observation that every announced comics guest was, again, male.

We also pointed out that, as last year, they would be female creators at the show, just that they hadn't, at least not yet, been listed.

Mark Millar later made it clear on Facebook;

As Sarah pointed out to me last night (she wasn't in the office yesterday) there's 11 female comic creators coming and this was mentioned in MONDAY'S CBR press release. Their pics will be added to the site as soon as the artists in question send them to her. I believe this is called CASE CLOSED :)

The press release doesn't mention this, not that I can see anyway. Maybe CBR cut it off. But many people will be heartened by this news…

And thanks to PJ Holden for the rather hilarious screencap…

UPDATE: The ladies in question would be the creators of Bayou Arcana… and it seems as if another is on the way, according to this tweet;

@beckycloonan Hi brilliant news you're in UK for Kapow. Just heard from friends! Please DM us if you fancy doing panel/ signing. Best, Sarah
