As mentioned here on ComicMix back on February 12, Cheryl Lynn has been busy creating a new and very needed comics organization. The website is now live and ready for your participation!
The Ormes Society, named after the legendary pioneering cartoonist of color Jackie Ormes, is an organization dedicated to supporting black female comic creators and promoting the inclusion of black women in the comics industry as creators, characters and consumers. In addition to their front-page weblog, the Society also has an active forum up and running.
Cheryl is a real powerhouse so there’s bound to be tons of activity; get in on the ground floor! The launch of the organization will be discussed in further detail at the New York Comic Con, where Cheryl will be a panelist on the Black Panel in prime-time, Saturday afternoon at 2 PM, moderated by ComicMix columnist Michael Davis!
Look for further updates on Ormes Society activities here in the near future!
