Hey everyone, just a quick note to say that we're changing the way we categorize our links slightly. Our previously labelled "miscellaneous" category will now be more accurately called "women in comics", and the miscellaneous category should be a bit more self-descriptive and reserved for items that don't quite fit elsewhere. Also! Alphabetized! =)

We appreciate feedback, and if you've got links to submit you can send 'em to!
