  • About the Edition

    In the late "60s, underground comix changed the way comics readers saw the medium -- but there was an important pronoun missing from the revolution. In 1972, ten women cartoonists got together in San Francisco to rectify the situation and produce the first and longest-lasting all-woman comics anthology, Wimmen"s Comix. Within two years the Wimmen"s Comix Collective had introduced cartoonists like Roberta Gregory and Melinda Gebbie to the comics-reading public, and would go on to publish some of the most talented women cartoonists in America -- Carol Tyler, Mary Fleener, Aline Kominsky-Crumb, Dori Seda, Phoebe Gloeckner, and many others. In its twenty-year run, the women of Wimmen"s tackled subjects the guys wouldn"t touch with a ten-foot pole: abortion, menstruation, masturbation, castration, lesbians, witches, murderesses, and feminists. Includes the ground-breaking 1970 one-shot, It Ain"t Me, Babe, the very first all-woman comic book ever published.
