Three Words: An Anthology of Aotearoa/NZ Women's Comics is a 2016 collection that was edited by Rae Joyce, Sarah Laing, and Indira Neville. The book was first published on 14 March 2016 and collects together 63 female comic artists from New Zealand.

She further commented that she hoped that Three Words would raise awareness for female comics from New Zealand, as she felt that they were under-represented.
