But I will say this, as my son has gotten older and demanded more and more graphic novels, I've had to get used to not spending quarters and dollars on books like in my full-on thrift shop days. The black-and-white images had the quality of chalk and charcoal drawings that showed nearly empty landscapes with bodiless heads that had large luminous eyes looking upward as if in revelation. Originally published as a three-page strip in 1972, the resulting 1986 graphic novel won a Pulitzer Prize in 1992.

Despite the advantages of wood engraving, the French satirical magazines stayed with lithographic printing for much of the 19th century. Industry veterans welcome the influx of female talent and are happy to bid farewell to the days of being grossly outnumbered by men at comic conventions. “I look at my classes, and it’s not uncommon that there are a few more women than men,” said Jessica Abel, author of the graphic novel “La Perdida.” Abel has taught undergraduate cartooning courses at the School of Visual Arts in New York. “It’s also not uncommon that they’re the best students in class.” MacDonald, the Eisner-nominated comics journalist and editor of comics blog The Beat, points to the stark contrast between today’s comics industry and that of the 1980s and ’90s, when she helped start Friends of Lulu, a nonprofit promoting female readership and participation in comics.
