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 bomb-shells 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.
