How To De-Objectify Women in Comics: A Guide | Heroic Girls

LABSN Editor’s Note: I found this interesting just for the sense of making me aware of how we objectify women in culture. We can all learn from this.

As an artist, what can I consider if I want to de-objectify and add power to female characters? A visual guide by Eisner nominee Renae De Liz.
