Hire This Woman is a recurring feature on ComicsAlliance that shines a spotlight on female comics creators, whether they're relative newcomers or experienced pros who are ready to break out. In an overwhelmingly male business, we want to draw your attention to these creators --- and to raise their profile with editors and industry gatekeepers.
Artist Megan Levens worked in advertising for years before moving into comics, where she's built up an impressive resume already. She's drawn books like Madame Frankenstein and Ares & Aphrodite and is currently illustrating Buffy Season 10.
You know, I think it's high time that we get some new saints around here. I mean, no offense to Lucy of Syracuse or any of her devotees, but as impressive as carrying one's eyes around on a golden plate might be, it just doesn't have a lot of relevance to my life.

Thanks to new images at Entertainment Earth, collectors can now have a look at what's going to be a busy 2014, with more than 60 total ReAction figures planned from movies including The Rocketeer, The Nightmare Before Christmas, Predator, The Terminator, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Back to the Future, Escape from New York, Firefly, Scream, The Goonies, Universal Monsters, Pulp Fiction, A Nightmare on Elm Street, Friday the 13th, Hellraiser, Trick 'R Treat, Halloween and The Crow.
A nominee for this year's Eisner Award for Best Anthology (and last year's winner), Dark Horse Presents has been one of ComicsAlliance's favorite titles since it was relaunched in 2011 to continue the classic and influential series' tradition of showcasing emerging talent alongside some of the best established writers, artists and cartoonists mainstream and underground comics has to offer. Each issue comes with quirky, undiluted excursions into the minds of uniquely talented creators, usually with immersive new serials or idiosyncratic short stories but also in the form of recurring, cult favorite characters and properties for which Dark Horse has served as caretaker for many years.
The Gay And Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation has announced its nominees for the 24th Annual GLAAD media awards, which "recognize and honor media for their fair, accurate and inclusive representations of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community and the issues that affect their lives." Included in the announcement are the nominees for Outstanding
Anyone who's watched Buffy the Vampire Slayer knows that only a young woman can become the chosen protector of mankind - after all, the first 34 episodes of the show feature a voiceover intro establishing this lore. If there's anything Dark Horse Comics has taught us with Buffy Season 9, however, it's that it can be a blast to rea
We are not the mainstream.
That's a truth understood by anyone who identifies as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgendered or in any other way queer. We are not the audience. We are not the market. We are not the
It's common at this time of year to take stock of the last twelve months and reflect upon all that's changed. Monster hunters and vampire slayers are no different, as demonstrated by this delightful sketch by Duncan Fegredo. The brilliant i
