Bought this as a present but read it first of course Really enjoyed it, it s balanced and thought out than you might expect It s interesting as a cultural indication of social change and, as a comic book fan, it s really interesting to read about early comics and comic heroes that have been forgotten It gets a little weaker as it heads into the modern age but still recommended. good read well packaged This is a tale of unfolding public fantasy It s the evolution of female heroes through the decades, which ties in with developments in fashion, film, politics and music In exploring the comic books, Madrid touches off light shows of memories and associations It s fascinating and playful. I bought this book as a gift for my partner so I cant comment much about the content, although it does look interesting The delivery was sharp, on time and in good health no battered edges, no burst packaging Im sure she ll love the book Comic book superheroines bend steel, travel across time and space, and wield the awesome forces of nature These mighty females do everything that male superheroes do But they have to work their wonders in skirts and high heels The Supergirls, a cultural history of comic book heroines, asks whether their world of fantasy is that different from our own Are the stories of Wonder Woman s search for an identity, Batwoman and Power Girl s battle for equality, and Manhunter s juggling of a crime fighting career and motherhood also an alternative saga of modern American women
