Excellent compendium of women cartoonists culled from the early 90's limited-run comic book series. There's not a clinker in the bunch; even the creators whose work is not generally to my liking (Carol Swain, Leslie Stenbergh, and series editor Diane Noomin herself) contribute stellar work here, and several tales, such as Phoebe Glockner's nightmarish "Minnie's 3rd Love" and Carol Tyler's typically hilarious tale of woe "Migrant Mother" are downright brilliant.

Really good! Not as much artist bio as the first anthology and only one comic per woman. Also, sometimes I don't love how it seems like it's trying to downplay the politics, but just the fact that it's all women has a certain politics. Can't believe I'd never read Debbie Drechsler before. She's incredible. Also loved the comics by Aline Kominsky-Crumb, Dame Darcy, Diane Noomin, and Phoebe Gloeckner.

About as far from costumed power fantasies as you're going to get. Auto-biographical (or possibly fauxto-biographical) stories predominate, though my favorites in the book are Carol Lay's mystical humor sections, with the intensity of Phoebe Gloeckner's coming-of-age as a close second.
