Super Women and Men

Truth be told I was more than a little worried about taking on Wonder Woman. By that I mean writing about her with any semblance of knowledge, not to mention writing about Trina Robbins, Ramona Fradon and Mary Fleener, three amazing women comics writers/artists.

Nancy Drew and the Case of the Moldy Papers

What is it that drives us to search for ourselves in the photos and stories of our ancestors? I've always loved detective stories from the time I was a little girl in Mobile, Alabama. I would take the younger siblings and ride the bus downtown on Saturday mornings and we'd go to the movies for [...]
