To champion and support the work of cartoonists, comics artists and graphic novelists whose work focuses on the drama of the everyday.

But what IS Laydeez do Comics (LDC)? 

Laydeez do Comics is like a combination between a book club
and a series of TED talks
(Julie Davis Art Animal, a women’s art magazine, 2013)

Laydeez do Comics is a female-led but not female-only unique graphic novel forum that meets monthly in London. We host guests to speak about their work with a focus on comic works based on life narrative, and the everyday.


The steering is UK based, and we operate as an unincorporated voluntary organisation with six committee members who are: Charlotte Bailey, Rachael Ball, Wallis Eates, Sarah Lightman and Nicola Streeten. We have satellite branches around the globe, For more head to our “About” page.
