There are approximately one thousand billion independent comics out there on the Internet and I am a fan of almost all of them. Crudely-drawn one-panels or intricately inked, sweeping stories — there’s something out there for everyone, really.
One of the things I love most about webcomics is how accessible they are. They’re drawn by people just like you or me — they have jobs, they fight with their significant others about doing the dishes. They take public transit and accidentally step in rain puddles. But in my mind, they’re like superheroes: mild-mannered blue-collar worker by day, but by night, they churn out these amazing works of art.
Here’s the thing: there are a lot of really lovely, female-positive webcomics out there created by dudes, but this list? This list is for the ladies.
