Boys aren't the only ones who read comics--girls do too! From Betty and Veronica to Slutburger and Art Babe,Girls to Grrrlz explores the amazing but true history of girl comics. Pop culture fans will delight in author Trina Robbinss chronological commentary (with attitude) on the authors, artists, trends, and sassy, brassy characters featured in comic books for the last half-century. Meet the bubble-headed bombshells of the '40s, the lovelorn ladies of the '50s, the wimmin libbers of the '70s, and the grrrowling grrrlz of today. Her commentary is paired with a ton of rare comic book art pulled from the best girl comics published since World War II. Bridging the gap betweenMs. and Sassy , between Miss America and Naomi Wolf,From Girls to Grrrlz reminds us how comic book characters humorously--and critically--reflect our changing culture.
