Trina Robbins

Trina Robbins has been writing and drawing comics since the 1960s. She edited the first comic book created entirely by women, It Aint Me Babe, in 1970, and co-founded the Wimmen's Comix collective. Robbins has been published by Marvel, DC, Kitchen Sink Press, and Image. Her non-fiction scholarly writing, such as the 2013 release Pretty in Ink: North American Women Cartoonists 1893–2013 (Fantagraphics Books) reintroduced the public to important, long-forgotten female artists. As a special guest at the 1977 San Diego Comic-Con, Robbins was given the Inkpot Award. She was inducted into the Will Eisner Comic Book Hall of Fame in 2013.
