News for Onna! 2005:

Onna! announces first confirmed guests

Onna!, a festival celebrating women's roles in comics and animation, is pleased to announce two confirmed guests: Paige Braddock and Sin Comix.

Paige Braddock, creator of "Jane's World", is one of the few women to have a comic strip syndicated in major metropolitan daily newspaper, and the only artist with a gay/lesbian main character to ever do so. Paige and "Jane" will bring years of experience and success in the demanding business of syndicated comic strips to share with Onna! attendees.

Sin Comix is a New York-area circle of artists who publish both online and print works. Their unabashedly mature comics, experience in self-publishing, and great sense of humor make this group of women special.

For more on Onna! guests, check out the Events section at the Onna! website:

Onna! takes place Columbus Day weekend, October 8 to 10, 2005, at the Hilton Gateway in Newark, NJ.
