Recommends it for: all readers, particularly fans of great comics, great music, and great fashion
Recommended to Brent by: Trina
This was so much fun to read, slowly, with appreciation. I've followed Trina's work since I discovered her underground comics in the mid 1970s. Now, she tells all! Trina made clothing for some great rock musicians, and tells about her boutique, as well as her great drawing, writing, and activism. These are great stories of such a great, fun life.
Thanks to the Emory University Library for ordering this from publisher Fantagraphics Books.
Highest recommendation.

Robbins is ultra cool, but there were some problematic moments of re-hashing drama that seemed petty and out of place. I loved reading about her experiences as a dressmaker in the 60s and a comic artist/writer after.

I met Trina Robbins when I lived in San Francisco in the early 1990s, in a writing workshop. Our young teacher gave us writing prompts. Our goal was to become better writers with practice. Apparently, it has since paid off as I liked this autobiography a great deal, which was well-written and very interesting.

Throughout the years, I would see Trina at comic book and writers' conventions, until I moved out of California in 2009. I didn’t realize she had such a colorful past, although I know she h

If Trina Robbins chose the title "Last Girl Standing" to play on the trope of the one remaining female at the end of a horror movie that survives to tell her tale, she is definitely more like reliable if plain Laurie Strode from "Halloween" than intense Ellen Ripley from "Aliens." While I did not need Trina to open a vein to find her voice believable or her story interesting, too little variance in the sort of superficial storyline and in the tone of her writer's voice ended up flattening the im ...more

One of my favorite figures in comics. This book is so cool. Why hasn't DC collected her Legend of Wonder Woman series as a graphic novel???

via NYPL - A strong autobiography of one of the most valuable figures in the comics underground. Trina is a treasure and I'm glad she shared her story with us.
