The Supergirls: A Slide Show Presentation by Author Mike Madrid
The recently published book, The Supergirls: Fashion, Feminism, Fantasy, and the History of Comic Book Heroines, by Mike Madrid, is a cultural history of female superheroes in American comic books. This one-hour presentation traces the evolution of these fantasy characters from the 1930’s to the present day and discusses how their roles and personas often reflected the lives of American women in the “real world.” Touching on issues such as male/female relationships, empowerment and heroines’ costumes, Mr. Madrid combines history with a touch of humor. This program will appeal to all audiences with an interest in comic books and cultural history.

We'll pick up again in April:
