Comic Books By Women

 

Welcome to our world! Emet Comics was founded in 2015 to empower female storytellers and artists. We believe that 50% of all the creators in comics, film, and television should be women. We believe that more women creating their own stories, will lead to more women up on the screen, and more women out in the world pursuing their dreams. Most importantly, we believe in putting our money where our mouth is, so we are financing comics and graphic novels by female creators. We invite you to explore, to check out our comics, and to stop by at conventions to meet us and our creators.
