At a time when the female perspective and female presence and in gaming has once again come under fire, Chainmail Bikini seeks to celebrate the experience of women as players, makers, and critics of gaming. Female creators have come together to make an anthology of comics that is not only entertaining but insightful. From videogames to table top role play to collectible card games, Chainmail Bikini will show that while women are not always the target market for gaming, they are a vital and thoroughly engaged part of it, and are eager to express their personal take on the medium.
I’m still searching for a few more contributors, so submissions are open from now until October 15th, 2014. If you are a woman interested in contributing a 1-8 page comic about gaming, please visit the submission guidelines.
Chainmail Bikini will launch a Kickstarter in March 2015. Until then, keep playing!
* Medb is mythological, so not so much part of the series, still a pretty great warrior queen, though.
I included Wikipedia links on the names not because Wikipedia is always the best source, but because it’s a great place to start finding out about historical figures (the citations are a great way to find good source material). Also, if anyone who reads them his more accurate info they can edit the page.
