"Why are so few women in the comics pages? Funny Ladies features four extraordinary female cartoonists in the male-dominated world of newspaper comics. Dale Messick recalls her 40+ years of drawing and writing Brenda Starr. Cathy Guisewhite [sic] (Cathy) holds forth on the concept of feminine perfection, politics and cheesecake. Lynda Barry chats about childhood and writing in a 'trance.' And the ever gutsy Nicole Hollander, who syndicates Sylvia herself, talks about the "invisiblity" of older women in modern society"--Container

GRAPHIC NOVELS. Before Fredric Wertham and The Seduction of the Innocent (SOTI), before the Kefauver Hearings, and before the infamous "Comics Code", the comic book racks at local drug stores and newsstands boasted a plethora of delights highlighted by the good girl adventures of the comic book version of "Brenda Starr". These four-color wonders displayed all the finer things loved by comic books buyers: good girls, bondage, a little torture, and other exciting things, which adults thought would corrupt the morals of young and impressionable readers (Brenda Starr cover art was even used as an example in SOTI). Now for the first time in over fifty years comics fans can read and own these rare comics from another era, digitally restored to perfection and presented in an archival hardcover. In addition to presenting all of the Brenda Starr stories, this reprint also boasts all of the scintillating back-up features found in these books as well
