1. Bitch Planet
I finally made it to Junky Comics on Sunday last weekend! I'd been planning on going for months, since before it even opened. Things, life, etc, managed to get in the way, as they always do. First, of course, my partner and I went to Blackstar Coffee to grab a cold pressed coffee (yum!), then I went and entered the store.
It's filled with a huge variety of comics - sure there's not the sheer volume of comics as at Comics Etc, but there are a lot more quirky, hard to find, political, LGBTIQAP+, feminist, etc ones. They also have a section for zines! Local (and not so local) artists and writers are able to bring in some zines/comics that they have made and sell them in the store (the owner takes a commission of course).
There are heaps of great comics out there with women or a woman as the main character. I can only really speak about the ones that I myself have read, which is why maybe one of your favourites isn't here. Feel free to tell me about your favourite in the comments though!

As an avid animal rights supporter and comic book reader, I get really excited any time these two passions meet up. I've found four comic books with animal rights themes so far in my exploration of the comic book world and thought I'd share them with you all.

#4 Critical Hit
