This is the first installment of a periodic “flash review” of a Web site I love and think you may love, too.
Kelly Thompson, author of She Has No Head! at Comics Should Be Good and creator of the blog, 1979 Semi-Finalist, where she writes about women in comics. And, these are only a few of her many other projects.
