iii. every page of the story will be drawn by a different artist.

iv. the story will be posted on behalf of femcomics in parts.


a project where writers and artists create a complete 21-page comic story about a lady who’s being ill-used in the comic books.


to show love and respect to the chosen female character* and display the way she should be treated.


approximately in February and March.


anyone who identifies as female or other minor gender. age, occupation and previous participation in FCE matter nothing. writers must know the background of the chosen character.*


21 writers and 21 artists will be working on the story. firstly, the story is discussed by all writers (artists can participate too) via skype and then every writer pens a page of the script. artists illustrate the script (a page for everyone) and the story is posted on behalf of femcomics in parts.
