Six Chix is a unique daily comic strip. It is created by six women cartoonists who each draw a day of the week and then rotate the Sunday strips. Isabella Bannerman draws Mondays; Margaret Shulock draws Tuesdays; Susan Camilleri Konar draws Wednesdays; Anne Gibbons draws Thursdays; Benita Epstein draws Fridays; and Stephanie Piro draws Saturdays. Each cartoonist writes and draws with her own style and perspective. On any week, you might find gags about the economy, technology, zombies, pirates or health caremdashand the main characters will be female and funny.
Six Chix was the brain child of the late Jay Kennedy who, in 2000 when Six Chix was launched, was the editor-in-chief of King Features. He made it his mission to be on the lookout for new cartoonists and to try and bring more women creators and readers to the comics. Six Chix helped him achieve these goals. Continuing with Editor Brendan Burford,Six Chix launched their blog, www.thesixchix.com, in 2008. In 2014, ldquoSix Chixrdquo was honored to receive a nomination for ldquoBest Newspaper Comic Strip of the Year.rdquo from the National Cartoonists Society. The new Six Chix website made its debut in October 2016 at http://sixchixcomics.com.
