The Women of Marvel panel is back at San Diego this Sunday morning in room 5AB at 11:15am. Now in its sixth year at Comic-Con (with appearances at other shows like C2E2 and New York Comic Con), the panel has become an institution, shining a light on what it's like to be a woman working in comics and offering advice to women who want to enter the industry.
This year's panel features writer and editor Louise Simonson (Power Pack, X-Factor), colorist Christina Strain (Runaways, Daughters of the Dragon), Marvel Augmented Reality manager and cosplay blogger Judy Stephens, and Marvel project manager Jenny Yeats.
The panel is once again moderated by X-Men editor Jeanine Schaefer. ComicsAlliance spoke to Schaefer to talk about her plans for this year's panel, and what she sees as the big challenges and the big changes for women working in the industry.
