On this episode of Back Matter our hosts discuss the issue of the representation of women in comic books, and in particular the objectification of women being misrepresented as empowerment. This discussion happens through the lens of Jim Balent’s Tarot: Witch of the Black Rose, an ongoing series published by Broadsword Comics.

Our hosts for this episode are Joe Preti, Kirbotron 2000, Kayleigh Fleeman, Kelsey Hume, and Henry Branstone.
