No Girls Allowed!

Claire Litton has written a really great, well-researched essay for PopMatters called “No Girls Allowed!: Crumb and the Comix Counterculture.”

It’s always struck me as being disappointing when alternative cultures end up being as misogynistic as mainstream cultures.

If you want a history of women’s comics, I recommend Trina Robbins’ From Girls to Grrrlz.
