Now an annual occurrence, the new issue of Team Girl Comics is released this month. Edited by Gill Hatcher, there’s work by many exciting emerging female comic creators within its pages – including Artificial Womb regulars Shona Heaney and Rebecca Ollerton.
Some highlights are a piece about Victorian cartoonist and actress Marie Duval, that attempts to restore her key role in comic history, and a protest sign filled story by Amanda Hateball filled with roller derby girls and riotous laughter. As usual the collection is filled with autobiographical type stories about puberty, gender, family, career anxiety & an underlying feeling of hope and shared understanding. A joy to read.
Buy Team Girl Comic #12 in our zine distro.
