Join me in welcoming – Debbie Lynn Smith of Kymera Press. Where the tag reads – Were not asking for permission!
Kymera Press – By now you’ve all heard that women are the fastest growing demographic in comic book readership. While that is true, the thing that comic book publishers large and small need to notice is that we’re nearing parity as well. Almost every other comic book that is sold is being bought by a woman. And we come out to play as recent surveys show. Virtually half of the attendees at the 2015 edition of the San Diego Comic-Con were women. But when I go to my local comic book shop and check out the shelves or attend a con, I come away noticing that all of the creative aspects of the comic business are still dominated by men.
