She Changed Comics is a full-colour, 160-page book coming out this autumn, funded through Kickstarter and produced by the CBLDF.

While traditionally the history of comic books is dominated by male names, Shuster and Siegel, Goodman, Kane, Eisner, Stan Lee, Jack Kirby, this book will profile and interview sixty female creators from the beginning of the 20th century to the present day who have "transformed the landscape of free expression and expanded the comics artform" and – with specific interest to the CBLDF – "the plight of women who have been persecuted for expressing themselves through cartoons"

Kickstarter donors will receive everything from a printed thanks in the book, to copies of the printed edition to career development reviews from the likes of Diana Schutz and Karen Berger.
