AboutLAYDEEZ DO COMICS is the first UK graphic novel forum led by women. Its focus is on comics work based on life narrative, and the drama of the domestic and the everyday.
Launched in July 2009, the group was set up by the illustrator and author of graphic novel Billy, Me & You", Nicola Streeten, and the artist and curator Sarah Lightman. It is the first women-led graphic novel forum in the UK. They shared an interest in comics and graphic novels that were not about superheroes but were more about the domestic and autobiographical. They felt that they couldn't be alone in their interest for this emerging genre within the medium of graphic novels. They were right!
