Girly Comic Website Returns

Via the Forbidden Planet blog, we’re pleased to report that the Girly Comic website is once again back in business and being updated.

A hacker attack back in 2009 caused severe setbacks for the website, but now it’s back in action and the Girly Comic team is going to concentrate on the site rather than the printed version for the time being.

Comic strips will be posted every Monday, a mixture of stories from the print version and brand new material. On Wednesdays there’ll be reviews of comics of interest to Girly Comic readers and on Fridays, Selina Lock, the editor, will be blogging about the world of comics in general.

Further good news is that the Girly Comic is on the long list for the British Fantasy Award for Best Comic/Graphic Novel 2009

This is a welcome return for an old favourite.
