Description

"Like a well-designed game, Chainmail Bikini sets forth a straightforward premise and then challenges as it delights, capturing your imagination and before you know it, you'll find yourself invested in it."-My Entertainment World "Whether you're a hardcore gamer who wants to see stories by others who share your passion [or] a comics lover who wants to see a wide variety of excellent comics from a wide variety of talented creators . . . this is a book that you'll enjoy, treasure and be able to return to over and over again."-Autostraddle Chainmail Bikini is an anthology of comics by and about female gamers! Forty cartoonists have contributed comics about the games they're passionate about-from video games to tabletop role-playing to collectible card games. The comics in Chainmail Bikini explore the real-life impact of entering a fantasy world, and how games can connect us with each other and teach us about ourselves. Alliances are forged, dice get rolled, and dragons get slain! Chainmail Bikini shows 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 as players, makers, and critics of games. Chainmail Bikini is edited by Hazel Newlevant (If This Be Sin), and features a cover illustration by Hellen Jo and comics by established talents and rising stars including Annie Mok, Jane Mai, Molly Ostertag, MK Reed, and Sophie Yanow.
