This article focuses on the change to the gender gap in the history of Italian comics as a sign of social change in Italy. The article makes a brief reference to the US, which serves as an important basis for comparison with the impositions from above that comics production had to suffer in Italy; then focuses on the first clear signs of gender-role changes in the comics scene nationwide, starting in the early 1960s; and ends by noting the sexual liberation expressed in comics in the second half of the 1960s.
