Scotland’s favourite all-female comix collective, Team Girl Comic, have just released their seventh issue.
TGC 7 is a 28 page, A5 size, anthology featuring an eclectic mix of short comic strips by female writers and artists from a wide variety of backgrounds and ages, from absolute beginners to professional artists.
The colour cover is by Penny Sharp and the black and white interior features contributions by Gill Hatcher, Evy Craig, Nondo, Jef Sinclair, Anna Clark, Claire Yvette, Honeypears, Cacachute and Claire JC Stewart in which they revisit the girl comics of yore, party like it’s 1949 and bash those bothersome bullies.
There are more details of Team Girl Comic on their website, blog, Facebook page, and Twitter feed.
Team Girl Comic issues are available to buy from their online shop as well as selected comics shops in Glasgow, Edinburgh and London.
Team Girl Comic will be at the Dundee Comics Expo (Table 20, Baxter Suite) on Saturday 30 March 2013.
