Women Comic Creators and Enthusiasts creating a Safe Space for women to create, find support, and HAVE FUN!!
"Thursday nights are the highlight of my week. I get to hang out with cool, like-minded people, eat cheese, and talk about comics. What's not to love?"

The MANthology is a comic anthology dedicated to putting men in positions typically reserved for women. This book is packing some serious heat, with 14 stories by 28 contributors, and pinup section that really puts the “men” in empowerment. Each story focuses on a different sexist trope, ranging from magical boys, to men in refrigerators. We want to start a conversation about why these storytelling devices are restricted to women, and how media representation matters. There’s even a small glossary in the back for readers who want to learn more. Not only is this book educational, it’s also charming, hilarious, and chock-full of sexy, sexy men.
Brace yourself for the hip new anthology hitting the Manhattan Beach scene — THE LADYBUG ANTHOLOGY — brought to you courtesy of the Los Angeles Women’s Comic Creator League (aka the Ladybugs) and the Comic Bug in Manhattan Beach, CA. The LADYBUG ANTHOLOGY will be the first of many anthologies to come out of the Ladybugs featuring all women creators.
So this comic anthology was made entirely by women, awesome! But what treasures will readers find inside? We have Orion, the story of a girl looking for her lost rabbit in a dystopian future. There’s Bounty Hunter Space Besties, a tale of two women trying to rise in the ranks of space-bounty-hunting by showing some extra initiative and breaking into the house of a suspected ne’er-do-well. Don’t forget, The Struggle is Real, a slice of life comic documenting the trials and tribulations of a morning trip to the bathroom. All of this, and 11 more stories will be yours. These tasty tales range from cute to dark to hilarious, so brace yourself for an emotional rollercoaster.
