She Draws Comics: Great Women Cartoonists
Cartoon Art Museum, San Francisco
There's no sign of Superman or his super-hero comic-book brethren here. This
show, running through June 8, is all about the ladies. Indeed, it serves to
shed light on the secret history of women in comics--both the creators and
the characters themselves. Although men have long dominated the world of
cartooning and comics, women have been inking away for more than 100 years.
"She Draws Comics" shines the spotlight on many of these forgotten women
pioneers and showcases their equally talented modern-day counterparts. The
well-edited show, featuring 90 works, entertains and educates. It is a
veritable history lesson on women's roles and experiences over the past
century as told through the funnies. (The history of women cartoonists during
WWII is particularly interesting.) Highlights include comics by Dalia
Messick, creator of Brenda Starr, as well as comics by Cathy Guisewite
(Cathy), Lynn Johnston (For Better or For Worse), and Trina Robbins, show
curator and cartoonist. Gadzooks! For info visit or
