How is it I haven't yet rated this? This anthology is the reason I started making comics. ...more

As you would surmise from the title, this is a collection of comics stories by female artists. You might think that, after twenty-nine years since publication, some of these would seem a little dated. Not so. These stories seem as fresh and relevant to me as ever.

To be fair, I’m somewhat biased, having been familiar with the work of most of these women from various underground comics since before this book was even published. I’ve lost count of how many times I’ve read it over the years--been a

But if someone hadn't before, that would be such a great intro to her!

It's also just so incredible to read a compilation of comics from the he

I first read this book in the early 1990s, and it blew my mind and completely changed my life. I still think it is the best collection of comics published, and I'm so sorry that it´s out of print and a new generation of young girls won´t be reading it! I've managed to buy most of the contributors' "collected work" books one by one, but the range of these artists and comics - very different from each other but all very surprising, funny and thought-provoking - together make this a truly awesome v ...more
