Six Chix is a collaborative comic strip distributed by King Features Syndicate since it debuted in January 2000.

The series is drawn by six female cartoonists who rotate the drawing duties through the week based on a fixed schedule:

  • Monday - Isabella Bannerman
  • Tuesday - Margaret Shulock
  • Wednesday - Rina Piccolo
  • Thursday - Anne Gibbons (started July 2007);[1] Carla Ventresca (October 2005 through July 2007); Ann Telnaes (through September 2005)
  • Friday - Benita Epstein (started May 2009);[2] Kathryn LeMieux (Through April 2009)
  • Saturday - Stephanie Piro
  • Sunday - Rotates

The Sunday comic is drawn by the team members on a rotating basis. The look and feel of the strip varies greatly among the six artists with no particular attempt made to introduce cohesiveness, although the strip usually focuses on relationships, child rearing and other issues of interest to women.

Six Chix has been syndicated to more than 120 newspapers, including the Arizona Republic, Detroit News, San Diego Union-Tribune, San Francisco Chronicle and Seattle Post-Intelligencer.

Five months after the strip was launched, the six women met each other for the first time on May 27, 2000. The occasion was a National Cartoonists Society Reubens Dinner in New York. On June 2, 2000, they appeared together on the Lifetime for Women Television Network.[3]
