Drawing Powerful Women: graphic novelist Maureen Burdock

Pastel from "Maisa & the Bad Muslim Girls." By Maureen Burdock.

No muscle-bound heroes or busty damsels-in-distress here. In the graphic novels of artist Maureen Burdock, women battle to overcome real-life atrocities like sexual violence, domestic abuse and murder. Burdock says, “These stories are hopeful and the heroines actively shape and reform their communities with their intelligence, humor, kindness, and a bit of magical realism.”
