KYMERA PRESS, A WOMAN-OWNED, WOMAN-RUN COMIC BOOK COMPANY!
Kymera Press is one of the few woman-owned comic book publishers in the industry. We publish comics that are written and drawn by women, to be loved and cherished by folks of all sexes.
The fastest growing demographic in comic readership is women. Comixology reports that 20 percent of their readers are women, up from 5 percent the previous year. And yet, women artists and creators are underutilized in the business.
So when Debbie Lynn Smith decided to turn her writing skills toward comics, it was with the specific mission of promoting these underutilized but immensely talented women artists and creators. Also, she wanted to get away from the sexualized bodies used to sell comics to teenage boys of all ages, and create and publish comics that reflect a more realistic view of girls and women.
Our second women-created comic is in the works. It is an adaptation of Pati Nagle’s series of linked short stories, “ Pet Noir .” In “Pet Noir” feline investigator Leon, with opposable thumbs and the ability to talk, is possibly the most dangerous cat in the galaxy.
Join Kymera Press in celebrating comics and the women who adore them. And to those who keep telling us that we are bound to fail, “We’re not asking for permission …”
