Trina Robbins

Comic Creator Wonder Woman

Trina Robbins

In 1970, Trina Robbins produced the very first all-woman comic book, "It Ain't me, Babe."  In 1972 she was one of the founding mothers of "Wimmin's Comix," the longest-lasting women's anthology comic book. (1972 - 1992) 

In the mid-1980s, tired of hearing publishers and editors say that girls don't read comics and that women had never drawn comics, she co-wrote (with catherine yronwood) "Women and the Comics," the first of what would become a series of histories of women cartoonists.  She has been responsible for rediscovering previously forgotten early women cartoonists like Nell Brinkley, Tarpe Mills, Barbara Hall, and Lily Renee. 

In 2013 Trina was inducted into the Will Eisner Comic Book Hall of Fame.

And, oh yeah, in 1986 she became the first woman to draw a Wonder Woman comic.
