Some come from well-established comics creators like ZanderCannon ( Top Ten , Replacement God ) and Ben Avery( Imaginaries , The Hedge Knight ), others come from people who havenever created a comics story before. And for those who have not noticed the riseof the female cartoonists, half of the stories chosen for the book are fromwomen, whether pros like Lea Hernandez ( Hardy Boys , CathedralChild ) and Svetlana Chmakova (creator of Tokyopop's Dramacon ) orbrand new voices on the comics scene.
