A groundbreaking collaboration from Bitch magazine with Esther Pearl Watson and Anne Elizabeth Moore, the six-page comics essay “Gender and Comics Potluck” featured the first-ever collection of statistical analysis, anecdotal evidence, and cute little animals presenting rock-solid data on women and trans people in the comic-book industry.
The only difference between it and this two-color, silk-screened Gender and Comics Potluck poster series is that it has been hand silk-screened and the pages are different sizes and there aren’t any articles or ads next to it. But it does pretty much mean you can stop decorating your walls with torn-out pages from magazines. (We know you did it, because you wrote to us and told us you did it.)
Poster set includes three tall, narrow posters, each surpassing the other two in sheer awesomeness. At top is the first of the actual posters, and as you can plainly see, it features kind of an orangey-pink. The entire set is represented here in one black and white image.
Now available here.
