The Ignatz Awards winners were announced last night (see an explanation and the nominees list here), and in an unprecedented result, a woman won every single category, with some even picking up more than one award.  But lest these results tempt us to view indie comics as a kind of feminist utopia, let us be reminded of the problematic economics and troubling ideology that often goes hand in hand with the “indie” label–and let us be think on that tomorrow.

Today, let’s celebrate these amazing comics by these amazing women.
