COMMUNITY NEWS: "Vodka O'Clock" Podcast, Ep. 1206 Features 3 CE Alums Talking About "Making Comics"!

Episode 1206 of the Vodka O'Clock podcast, hosted by CE alum and Workshop member Elizabeth Amber-Love, recently featured two more CE alums, Amy Chu and Georgia Lee from Alpha Girl Comics. It was a Comics Experience trifecta!

Amber and her guests offered an inside perspective on making comics from women that have started their own imprint, Alpha Girl Comics.

Their work features a variety of genres and subject matter that appeal to teen+ readers of either gender, while being female-friendly, but not female exclusive.

Their creative teams include male contributors such as CE coloring instructor Chris Sotomayor, CE Workshop member and letterer E.T. Dollman, Editor Paul Allor (the CE Book Club Manager and alum) and others.

According to Amy Chu on the podcast, "We’re definitely into promoting positive female role models in stories...Ultimately we want a good strong protagonist that isn’t going to end up in a refrigerator."

Recent Alpha Girl projects include Amy's Girls Night Out, a collection of short stories by different artistic teams, and Georgia’s Meridien City series about a space detective in a world where the upper class dominates the only habitable areas on a planet.
