"I received an advance copy of this book - after a very successful kickstarter campaign this book is now coming out in a softcover format with some great bonus material. But what makes this book special is the women that are highlighted - I saw some footage of Michelle Obama at the American Library Association conference and Ms. Obama is one of the 50 women this book pays homage to in graphic novel format. The creators have really curated a diverse selection of women who have made an impact on the arts, sciences, politics, and more."
This anthology brings together a stellar cast of rad comics people to tell stories about the women who inspired them. It's a book to return to and pore over for years. It will introduce you to new heroines and remind you why you loved others. A must-have for parents to introduce their sons and daughters to trailblazers of the femme persuasion in a world saturated by stories of male excellence.
I loved this book. If you're having a hard time swallowing the gross patriarchy, this book of kick ass people writing beautiful homages to kick ass women will help you get through it. I plan on getting several more for Christmas presents because it truly is the kind of book that has something for everyone.
This book is chock full of women who broke barriers, didn't take no for an answer and started movements. The perfect gift for any girl, women or guy you know. The illustrations are awesome and the stories are inspiring - a must read!
