Comics Are Great! 48 – Writing for Girls

Is writing adventure fiction for girls really all that different than writing for other audiences? If so, can such a story be characterized? Tough questions, so this time I went to the best sources for answers! We’re joined by Dan Mishkin, co-creator of the legendary comics series Amethyst, Princess of Gemworld and Blue Devil (and co-organizer of the upcoming Kids Read Comics celebration at AADL), and Brianne Drouhard, animator, character designer, and storyboard artist whose credits include Teen Titans, Transformers: Animated, Batman: Brave and the Bold and the new DC Nation shorts. Along with Paul Storrie we try to get to the bottom of what differences, if any, can be found in storytelling created specifically for girls.

We’re joined later by Eli Neiburger of the Ann Arbor District Library for another round of book recommendations!
