Description
Summary:Author Trina Robbins's art-packed compendium chronicles more than fifty years of authors, artists, trends and characters of girl comics. From Girls to Grrrlz is a terrific tribute to the great two-dimensional women of this century, from the bubble-headed bombshells of the forties to the lovelorn ladies of the fifties to the wimmin's libbers of the seventies to the grrrowling grrrlz of today. Illustrated with a ton of rare comic-book art pulled from the best of the best, From Girls to Grrrlz bridges the gap between Ms. and Sassy, between Miss America and Naomi Wolf, reminding us how comic book characters humorously, and critically, reflect our changing culture.
