Trina Robbins is an American comics artist and writer. She was an early and influential participant in the underground comix movement, and one of the few female artists in underground comix when she started. Her first comics were printed in the East Village Other. She later joined the staff of a feminist underground newspaper It Ain't Me, Babe, with whom she produced the first all-woman comic book titled It Ain't Me Babe.

“Once there was a time when more girls than boys read comics, a time when comics for girls sold in the millions, outnumbering every other kind of comic book.
And it all started with Archie.”
Trina Robbins, From Girls to Grrrlz: A History of Female Comics from Teens to Zines

“The storyline also changed with the times, and went from Marla Drake held captive by Nazis in the war years, to mad scientists, gangsters and kidnapping after the war. Miss Fury's adventures were part pulp, part film noir.”
Trina Robbins, Women and the Comics
