There's always an extra layer of exclusion if you keep on digging. My favorite example came from a Stanford professor who said to his wife, "Christ, notice anything about these top 20 CEOs in America?" His wife said, "Yeah, I know. It's appalling. They're all men." "I hadn't noticed that," he said. "I meant to say, they were all white." Similarly here, Francois Mouly is the only comics artist mentioned who's not an American, BUT as the article points out, she's Art Spiegelman's wife and slept her way to her mention. It's rather astonishing for an article on excluded female comics artists to exclude Marjane Satrapi, who surely counts for something.
