d comic strip
with no particular running plot line
. Six aspiring female artist
s, all of whom had encountered difficulty in breaking into the largely male dominated
comics industry. Really, how many girls draw comic strips? Cathy Guisewhite
, who draws Cathy
, and a few other, obscure ones.
The artists are Isabella Bannerman, Margaret Shulock, Rina Piccolo, Ann Telnaes, Kathryn LeMieux, and Stephanie Piro. They (in theory) each draw one day a week, and then take turns doing the Sunday Strip. In reality, I think I see less styles than that. Maybe a few of them are slacking off?
Because of the many artists, there isn't a plot line and very few recognizable characters. Even the ones I have started to see repeatedly are typically unnamed. The theme that ties the strip together is an attention to women, and women's issues.
