Women Who Conquered The Comics World

When comics creator Trina Robbins tried to join the male-dominated 'underground comix' movement based in San Francisco in the early 1970s, the men cartoonists shut her out. Robbins joined forces with other women cartoonists to create their own women's-lib comic books.

She went on to become a well-respected mainstream comic artist and writer, as well as a feminist comics critic who's written myriad nonfiction books on the subject of great women cartoonists and the powerful female characters they created.
