Hire This Woman: Cartoonist Sally Jane Thompson

Untitled-1

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.”

Cartoonist Sally Jane Thompson has created many comics on her own such as the webcomic From! and the graphic novel Atomic Sheep. She has also contributed art to projects like Womanthology: Space and Liberator Volume 1.
