Comics have never just been for guys, but increasingly so in recent years, the field has started opening up to girls. Female heroines, brilliant women writers and artists have begun to assert themselves and show that comics aren’t just a boy’s game. Join us as Santa Monica local and New York Times #1 bestselling author Margaret Stohl celebrates the release of her newest book, Black Widow: Forever Red, the first-ever YA novel from Marvel Comics, with a panel of other badass Marvel women. Joining her are Marguerite Bennett (author and artist for Marvel’s A Force), Lorraine Cink (host of the comics web series “The Watcher”), Ann Foley (costume designer of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.), and Judy Stephens (a Marvel producer and cosplay enthusiast). A book sale and signing follows the event.
