Female Comics have been getting a bad rap lately, and that is unfortunate. Female comic books are some of the best and most interesting on the market. In fact, they have some of the greatest female characters in comics today. Many female comic book readers still think of Wonder Woman, Batwoman, Aquaman, and The Supergirl in the same way that I think they did ten years ago. When you have a female superhero that is powerful, sexy, and strong, you can see why those type of comic books continue to be so popular.
There are some female comics out there that have sold millions of copies, and that alone is a pretty good accomplishment for an comic. One of the most popular female comic book personalities today is Kate Aston. Kate is a psychologist and hypnotherapist, and she has a crazy and hysterical look in every issue of Reducing Stress, her comic. She brings a lightness to the comic world that gets a lot of people a laugh.
However, what some people don't realize is that some of the best female comics are actually male comedians. In fact, one of my favorite comedians is Russell Brand. Brand is funny, and he gets a lot of media attention for his interviews, but his real gifts as a stand up comedian are his opinions and social views. He does a great job of taking controversial topics and making them funny without making them politically correct. I always love watching him on the television because he makes me think and laugh.
Some female comics are better at writing than performing. There are actually a few female comedians that have written several best selling stand-up comic books. One of those stand-up comic writers is Julie Jordan. Julie is a hilarious stand-up comic that was able to juggle romantic love with stand-up comedy, and women just love her sense of humor. Without her unique sense of humor, I'm not sure that any women would ever find humor in romance, or stand-up in general.
Another funny female comedian that comes to mind is Dana Brunetti. Brunetti is not exactly a writer, but he has written several hilarious screenplays. He's also written several best selling books, and his screenplays were some of the most creative that I've seen in many years. A few of my favorite scene from his movies are his rib-tucking story in Bridesmaids. While I think the scene is offensive due to the subject matter, it is still funny to me.
Some female artists include comics who are also cartoonists. Two very good examples of this are Willow & Queen. Willow the cartoonist created the hit television show'Drawn Together' with her partner, Kingpin. They also did several comic strips for several years, and their work is still available throughout the world.
Another one of the most talented female cartoonists in comics today is Sandra Bullock. She has created some truly memorable comic books, and is known throughout the world for her talents as a cartoonist. In fact, she has created several popular Spiderman storylines, including one titled The Dark Knight. She also co-created the popular animated TV series, X-Men. She has created numerous other cartoons for Marvel, DC, and other publishing companies.
Two other female artists that are making waves in the world of comics are Julie De Luca and Bundred Flowers. Julie has created several graphic novels, as well as an assortment of children's book. Bundred Flowers has drawn several comic strip series, and is currently working on a series of graphic novels. These two comic strip artists have helped pave the way for many other female artists, paving the way for more diversity in comics.
