"I definitely like to encourage ladies to get into comics, and try to make my work accessible to girls as well. I taught at SVA [School of Visual Arts] for a little bit and my classes were over half girls and it was awesome. So that was really cool to see, and whenever a girl comes up to me like, “Oh, you know you’re my inspiration, blah blah blah,” it’s so sweet, and it does mean a lot because I had ladies I looked up to as well when I was first starting out."
#women in comics
Cloonan was the first comics creator I ever met and even just as a teenage fan who shopped at a male-dominated comic shop that I was legit afraid of the first few months I shopped there, meeting her was a watershed experience in getting me hooked on comics (and the fact that the ~scary shop~ was the one that hosted her went a long way to making me feel more comfortable there!)
