Historian Guest of Honor for CopperCon Revolution:          Trina Robbins

An Award-winning herstorian and writer, Trina Robbins has been writing graphic novels, comics and books for over thirty years, ever since she produced the first all-woman comic book, It Ain’t Me, Babe, in 1970. Creator of Wimmen’s Comix. Her subjects have ranged from Wonder Woman and the Powerpuff Girls to her own teenage superheroine, GoGirl!, and from women cartoonists and superheroines to women who kill. She is considered the expert on the subject of early 20th century women cartoonists, and is responsible for rediscovering many brilliant but previously-forgotten women, including Golden Age Fiction House cartoonist, Lily Renee, and the great Nell Brinkley. Among her recent books: The Brinkley Girls: the Best of Nell Brinkley’s Cartoons from 1913-1940 (Fantagraphics, 2009), and Tarpe Mills and Miss Fury (IDW, 2011). Her final and definitive history of women cartoonists Pretty in Ink, (Fantagraphics) will see publication in August, 2013. A collection of the Golden Age comics of Lily Renee will be published later this year.
