The Ladydrawers Comics Collective is a loosely affiliated group of cartoonists and researchers who study how economics, race, sexuality, and gender impact the comics industry, other media, and the culture at large. They publish their findings primarily in comics form.

The group started out as students from the "Ladydrawers: Gender and Comics" class at School of the Art Institute of Chicago, taught and spearheaded by Anne Elizabeth Moore, researching the role of gender in the comics industry.
