An alternative history of American comic book superheroines.
From the Publisher:
Offers a cultural history of comic book heroines from the 1940s to the twenty-first century.
Mike Madrid, who makes it clear that this is a labor of love from a superfan, offers a delightfully thorough examination of superheroines in pop culture with SUPERGIRLS: FASHION, FEMINISM, FANTASY, AND THE HISTORY OF COMIC BOOK HEROINES.


"Madrid's book about the evolution of female comic-book characters is sharp and lively--and just obsessive enough about women who wear capes and boots to be cool but not creepy." - Jeff Giles 10/16/2009

"A thoughtful, comprehensive history of women in comics....[E]ven as it delivers its clear-eyed critique of the way mainstream superhero comics have alternately eroticized or deified female characters, THE SUPERGIRLS gleefully celebrates the medium itself, in all its goofy, glorious excess. " - Glen Weldon 12/02/2009
