Illustration by fashion illustrator and newspaper comic strip artist Tarpé Mills, from the 1940s.
Michael Dooley's latest interview for Print magazine's imPrint is here! Trina Robbins on Comics Heroines, Feminism, and Lacy Underthings is not just a provocative title. It's a thorough profile of underground comix pioneer and comics herstorian Trina Robbins. In it Trina discusses feminism, fashion, and "Miss Fury."
It's also bursting with awesome vintage comic illustrations and hypothetical match-ups (not the kind you may think). It's a delight!
