#31DaysofWomenMakingHistory: Kickstart This! Chainmail Bikini Comic Anthology

Name of Kickstarter: Chainmail Bikini

What it’s about: It’s a 200+ comic anthology written by and about female gamers.  The anthology features all new stories about the games the 40 cartoonists love-from video games to collectible card games, to table-top games. Via the Kickstarter:

The comics in Chainmail Bikini explore the real-life impact of entering a fantasy world, how games can connect us with each other and teach us about ourselves. Alliances are forged, dice get rolled, and dragons get slain! We believe that gaming should be open to all, regardless of gender. 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.
