Legendary comics "herstorian," Trina Robbins, is bringing a chunk of her astounding collection of women's comics to the Women’s History Museum of California in San Diego this summer!
(The entire collection has NEVER been shown, she notes!)
Wonder Women: On Paper and Off explores the avenues women have made in the comic and graphic industry. This exhibition follows the history of women in comics starting in the 20th century — as artists and characters — through today’s cartoon and graphic illustrations.
The exhibit, which opened this past Friday, June 7th, also features contributions from contributions from Joyce Farmer, Mary Fleener, Carol Lay, Ron May (collector), Peiter Ortiz (collector), Mimi Pond, and Andrea Tsurumi.
On Thursday, July 18th at 7:30 PM, Trina will be joined by Mary, Carol, and Ramona Fradon, for a panel discussion of their experiences of working in the comic industry, followed by a signing of her upcoming collection Pretty in Ink: American Women Cartoonists 1896-2013!
The Women's Museum of California is located at 2730 Historic Decatur Road, Barracks 16. The exhibit runs through Sunday, September 1st, 2013.
