Graphic matters: women making comics
No Thumbnail Available
Also called graphic narrative, in the last thirty years comic art has become a major genre with its own well-developed critical practice. While the field is dominated by men, women have been making comics successfully since the beginning of the twentieth century when women often focused on fashion or children. The growth of underground comics from the 1960's onwards opened the door to the comic expression of feminism and to comic artists such as Tina Robbins. Now a multitude of women produce comics in every genre from journalism to autobiography.
