Before we forget,Ariel Bordeaux also reminded us of another event in this fall women’s cartoonist fest, an open mike night at Bluestockings on November 4th.

An open mike celebration of the intense, hilarious, visceral and sublime qualities that women bring to the medium of comics. Women cartoonists are invited to perform whatever they wish (readings? music? belly dancing?), and the readers who love them are invited to speak out in praise of their power and charms. Browse a great selection of books and comics by women cartoonists, and get books signed by some of the best artists working in comics.
