Great Women Super Heroes HC (1996 Kitchen Sink Press) comic books
1st Printing. The Great Woman Super Heroes is the first book of its kind - a unique lovely look at the larger than life comic book women who have fascinated generations of American readers. Trina Robbins, the foremost authority on women and comics and author of the widely hailed "A Century of Women Cartoonists", traces the full story of the strong and heroic women who've battled evildoers and righted wrongs in the pages of America's Sunday funnies and comic books from the 1940's to today. From the famous to the forgotten, all of the powerful in comics are here, from Wonder Woman to Elektra, from the cat-suited Miss Fury and pioneer aviatrix Flyin' Jenny of the 1940's to the leather-corseted action heroines like Ghost of the 1990's, Robbins covers all the good girls and all of the bad girls in one fascinating volume. Hardcover, 8.5" x 11", 210 pages, B&W. Cover price $31.95.
