Alice In Quantumland

( via the explore-blog:)

Isn’t She? Pretty In Ink?

Isn't She? Pretty In Ink?

(via fantagraphics:)

Trina Robbins wrote the book, literally, on the history of women cartoonists, and now she’s back with a completely revised, updated and rewritten version. Pretty in Ink: North American Women Cartoonists 1896-2013 is an eye-opening, reader-friendly overview, loaded with illustrations and full comics pages in an oversized softcover format. From the early days of the art form, to the Golden Age, through the Underground, and into the present day, women’s often-underappreciated contributions to the medium come under Robbins’s spotlight to be given the recognition they deserve.

This book will be available in November; we’ll have more previews for you in the coming weeks, and you can secure your copy by pre-ordering now:

First of a three-part series of spreads of my take on Rapunzel set in India. The book is geared toward a younger audience so I went with younger protagonists as well!
