PRETTY IN INK: NORTH AMERICAN WOMEN CARTOONISTS, 1896-2013. Trina Robbins. Fantagraphics Books, Inc., Seattle, 2013. Distributed by W.W. Norton & Company, Inc., New York. 180 pp. with 308 ills. (92 col.). 31 x 23 cm. ISBN 9781606996690 In English.
Publisher's description: Trina Robbins has spent the last thirty years recording the accomplishments of a century of women cartoonists, and Pretty in Ink is her ultimate book, a revised, updated and rewritten history of women cartoonists, with more color illustrations than ever before, and with some startling new discoveries (such as a Native American woman cartoonist from the 1940s who was also a Corporal in the women's army, and the revelation that a cartoonist included in all of Robbins's previous histories was a man!) In the pages of Pretty in Ink you'll find new photos and correspondence from cartoonists Ethel Hays and Edwina Dumm, and the true story of Golden Age comic book star Lily Renee, as intriguing as the comics she drew... Robbins not only documents the increasing relevance of women throughout the 20th century, with mainstream creators such as Ramona Fradon and Dale Messick and alternative cartoonists such as Lynda Barry, Carol Tyler, and Phoebe Gloeckner, but the latest generation of women cartoonists -- Megan Kelso, Cathy Malkasian, Linda Medley, and Lilli Carre, among many others.
