Womanthology

Hey everyone, I'm running Saturday's update early because of how important it is.  This was schedule to post tomorrow but I didn't want to wait any longer. There is a very cool project out there that we need to talk about. Womanthology is an anthology made up of women writers,artists, and inkers/colorists who wanted to show off the talents of female creators. Not only does it look like it is going to be an amazing book, the profits are going to the Global Giving Foundation. So as a consumer you get a book put out by extremely talented people and you get to help a charity that funds smaller charities all over the world. That sounds pretty win-win to me.


Womanthology does need your help though; they need to raise the printing costs for this. IDW has already stepped up in a big way and said if they raise the money they will print and publish the book. So this is where you come in. They’ve set up a Kickstarter website. They are trying to raise 25,000. The minimum pledge is a dollar. Some of the higher pledges have some pretty cool rewards attached to them so check it out.

I’m sure this is a book I’m going to be talking about again, but check out the Womanthology website to get all the information from the source.

  1. I don't know if anyone saw but in less than 24 hours we not only made our goal but we are still getting contributions. It's never too late or pointless to contribute, the more capital we get the more books we can print and the bigger a chance the women in it will get to launch their careers. This also gives us more to give to Global Giving so everybody wins! Thank you so much for posting this Ken, we all love you for it!
