Last Girl Standing by Trina Robbins
Trade Paperback – Fantagraphics – Sep 2017 – 200 pages
Underground cartoonist Trina Robbins has done it all! She ran one of the hippest fashion boutiques in the East Village, mingled with rock stars, and produced feminist art by putting together the first all-woman comics anthology in the 1970’s.
Robbins dressed Mama Cass and Donovan, helped photograph the Rolling Stones’ first US tour, had wild drunken nights with Jim Morrison, and starred in Joni Mitchell’s famous song, “Ladies of the Canyon”. This memoir transports the reader from WWII-era New York, to the offices for EC and Marvel comics, to the post-Summer of Love San Francisco counterculture, and beyond.
