In the overwhelmingly male comic book industry, it has been a challenge for some editors and readers to see the ever growing number of talented women currently trying to make a name for themselves. With that in mind, ComicsAlliance offers Hire This Woman, a recurring feature designed for comics readers as well as editors and other professionals, where we shine the spotlight on a female comics pro on the ascendance. Some of these women will be at the very beginning of their careers, while others will be more experienced but not yet “household names.”
This time our spotlight falls on Allison Thomas. She does everything on her projects from writing to art to lettering. This manga- and webcomic-inspired cartoonist is currentlyhard at work on a webcomic called Whisper.
