    Short summary describing this person.

    No recent wiki edits to this page.


    Trina Robbins started writing and drawing comics in 1966, when she was running a clothing boutique in San Francisco in the heyday of Haight-Ashbury. But the public didn't know about her guilty little pleasure until she edited IT AIN'T ME, BABE, the first all-woman comic book in 1970. Later, in 1972, she was one of the founders of WIMMEN'S COMIX, which is, to this day, the longest running all-women comic book anthology in history. She co-edited STRIP AIDS USA, an AIDS benefit comic book in 1988 and in 1990 she self-published a pro-choice benefit book entitled CHOICES.

    Besides numerous articles in art periodicals, Trina has also written two histories of women in comics: WOMEN AND THE COMICS, which she co-wrote with cat yronwode, and A CENTURY OF WOMEN CARTOONISTS. She also has produced a number of children's books and paperdoll books which are now highly sought-after collector's items.
