The Kickstarter sensation that united over 100 comic book writers and artists from around the globe to celebrate, in 3-page comics stories, 50 female trailblazers of yesterday and today. From comic artists to pop music, politics, art, and science pioneers, astronauts, archaeologists, muckrakers and mathematicians, subjects include Margaret Atwood, Sally Ride, Dale Messick (Brenda Starr), Ursula LeGuin, Misty Copeland, animator Mary Blair, Carrie Fisher, Marlo Thomas (by Dan Parent) et al. Plus a new foreword, behind-the-scenes process pages, and more!
Creators from South Africa, India, England, Denmark, the U.S. and other locales converge to share stories of personal heroines--here's some more names: Kate Bush, Octavia Butler, Rumiko Takahashi (Ranma), Ada Lovelace, Margaret Sanger, Michelle Obama, Harriet Tubman and more.
Comic book luminaries Gail Simone, Kelly Sue DeConnick, Bill Sienkiewicz, Kieron Gillen, Sanford Greene, Jill Thompson, Gilbert Hernandez, Gerard Way, and Marguerite Bennett, to name a few, lend their talents to a celebration of kickass women who are truly magnifique.
A great book for all ages, for adults to better appreciate women's contributions to the world, and great for young girls to see so many areas conquered by women who are equal to any man in creativity, imagination, passion, drive, bravery, etc. Lots and lots to learn here.
