Three Words: An Anthology of Aotearoa/NZ Women's Comics is a manifold, brilliant, collaborative survey of the past twenty years of New Zealand women's comics. Bringing together over 60 contributors from all walks of life, the brief was simple: to submit any works of your choosing, as well as any three words to be passed on to another contributor to interpret into a single strip comic, maximising this one-off opportunity for collaboration in the very first anthology of its kind. Although they have been underrepresented in the New Zealand history books, women in Aotearoa New Zealand make comics. They make slick professional comics and crafty homemade ones. They are found in zines and magazines, tumblrs, twitter feeds, shoe boxes, art galleries, painted on old tea trays and brochures, stuck on fridges, tattooed on forearms. And now they're also here. In this book. A whole bunch of them, up front, visible, available and MAKING HISTORY.
