Abstract
This article examines the ongoing superhero webcomic <i>Strong Female Protagonist</i> (2012-present), by Brannon Lee Mulligan and Molly Ostertag and employs it as a case study to analyse the new communications circuit created by the digital production and delivery of comics. It adopts a perspective drawn from Book History to frame the communication model of print comics and to evaluate how webcomics such as <i>Strong Female Protagonist</i> redefine the role of readers, authors and publishers.
