Chicks Dig Comics is a collection of essays by and about women enjoying comic books. And it’s super awesome. There is so much variety and exuberance, it’s really special. The contributors are from all sorts of backgrounds and represent all sorts of websites and activities. Authors, artists, editors, bloggers, cosplayers, conventioneers… Plus interviews with creators whose work reflects they understand chicks dig comics.
I have an essay, Captain America’s Next Top Model, about using fashion to show off your inner superhero. It’s an extension of this blog so if you are reading this you should go get the book! Available at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and hopefully your local comic book store.
So, Anika, now that you somehow wound up published in between Kelly Thompson (Comic Book Resources) and Louise Simonson (Power Pack), what are you going to do?
I am going to Disney World! More importantly, I’m going to ride the AVENGERS MONORAIL. We’re actually going with the local high school band, the MHS Blue Dragons. So I will be a dragon, dressed in my special Disney outfits*, riding the Avengers monorail. Best week ever, right?
Buy the book! You won’t regret it.
*While packing I realized I could dress “in the style of Spider-Man” all seven days if I wanted to. I’ve decided to be proud.
