"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."--Jacket

Wonder women! : the untold story of American superheroines ( visu )
5 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 385 libraries worldwide
A nuanced critique of gender and heroism in popular culture as well as a powerful dose of Vitamin F(eminism) for the undernourished. From the birth of the 1940s comic book heroine, Wonder Woman, to the blockbusters of today, Wonder Women! looks at how popular representations of powerful women often reflect society's anxieties about strong and healthy women. Wonder Women! reveals the complicated negotiations girls and women face as they attempt to achieve confidence, strength, and agency in a society often at odds with those goals. Yet it also inspires through its evocative images, upbeat soundtrack, and richly contextualized history of American superheroines -- including the everyday wonder women and action girls in our midst. The film goes behind the scenes with Lynda Carter, Lindsay Wagner, comic writers and artists, and real-life superheroines such as Gloria Steinem, Kathleen Hanna, and others who offer an enlightening and entertaining counterpoint to the male-dominated superhero genre

Pretty in ink : North American women cartoonists, 1896-2013 by Trina Robbins( Book )
5 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 286 libraries worldwide
A revised, updated and rewritten history of women cartoonists, with more color illustrations than ever before, and with some startling new discoveries (such as a Native American woman cartoonist from the 1940s who was also a Corporal in the women's army, and the revelation that a cartoonist included in all of Robbins's previous histories was a man!) In the pages of Pretty in Ink you'll find new photos and correspondence from cartoonists Ethel Hays and Edwina Dumm, and the true story of Golden Age comic book star Lily Renee, as intriguing as the comics she drew. Although the comics profession was dominated by men, there were far more women working in the profession throughout the 20th century than other histories indicate, and they have flourished in the 21st. Robbins not only documents the increasing relevance of women throughout the 20th century, with mainstream creators such as Ramona Fradon and Dale Messick and alternative cartoonists such as Lynda Barry, Carol Tyler, and Phoebe Gloeckner, but the latest generation of women cartoonists-Megan Kelso, Cathy Malkasian, Linda Medley, and Lilli Carre, among many others
