Claire interviewed Jo Bevan of Bring Back Bunty:
How did you become motivated to launch your campaign, and how much work has gone into it so far? Do you have a One True Goal?
It was something that had been on my mind for a while and after chatting with other mums about the lack of comics I wanted to make my views more public. Many of my friends were fed up with the comics available for girls (and children in general), we all reminisced about the comics we had when we were young and I wanted to do something about it. Blogging is a great medium for connecting with people and sharing thoughts, everyone I’ve been in contact with in the comic industry has been enthusiastic and helpful, I’ve met an amazing bunch of people. I don’t have a true goal, I think its more of an awareness campaign to support the industry and spread the word that there is a market out there for children’s comics.
