Pretty in Ink: North American Women Cartoonists 1896-2013 by Trina Robbins - Excerpt
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under Trina RobbinspreviewsComing Attractions 1 Oct 2013 1:53 PM

Not resting on the laurels of her 2013 Eisner Hall of Fame induction, Trina Robbins has taken her epochal history of women in comics and completely revised and updated it into a new volume, Pretty in Ink: North American Women Cartoonists 1896-2013, scheduled to hit stores this November.

Here we bring you a downloadable excerpt of Chapter 1, "The Queens of Cute," which introduces you to the creators of American icons the Kewpies (also the creator of the first known comic strip by an American woman), the Campbell Kids, and other cherubic characters in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Later chapters take you through the Jazz Age, comics' Golden Age, the heyday of the underground, and up to the present day.

Don't miss this enlightening, entertaining, and essential volume — pre-order today!
