Two-volume slipcased set. In the late '60s, underground comix changed the way comics readers saw the medium--but it was still the boy's world: Crumb, Shelton, Moscoco, Wilson. In 1972, ten women cartoonists got together in San Francisco to rectify the situation and produce the first and longest-lasting all-woman comics anthology, Wimmen's Comix.
Within two years the Wimmen's Comix Collective had introduced cartoonists like Roberta Gregory and Melinda Gebbie to the comics-reading public, and would go on to publish some of the most talented women cartoonists in America--Carol Tyler, Mary Fleener, Dori Seda, Phoebe Gloeckner, and many others.
In its twenty year run, the women of Wimmen's tackled subjects most of the guys wouldn't touch with a ten-foot pole: abortion, menstruation, masturbation, castration, lesbians, witches, murderesses, and feminists. Most issues of Wimmen's Comix have been long out of print, so it's about time these pioneering cartoonists received their due.
Presented as a two-volume slipcased set, The Complete Wimmen's Comix includes the ground-breaking 1970 one-shot, It Ain't Me, Babe, the very first all-woman comic book ever published.
3D wasn't neglected in these pioneering issues, so the 3D Special Issue (#12) is here along with 3D glasses.
Variant editions are also available, each signed by one of four different artists and extremely limited. See our website.
