Kitchen Sink 1976
Girl bosses, girl bosses and more girl bosses. Trina Robbins (born Trina Perlson; August 17, 1938, in Brooklyn, New York) is an American cartoonist. She was an early participant in the underground comix movement, and one of the first female artists in that movement. She is a member of the Will Eisner Hall of Fame. Robbins was an active member of science fiction fandom in the 1950s and 1960s. Her illustrations appeared in science fiction fanzines like the Hugo-nominated Habakkuk. Most of her career seems to have been based on piggy-backing on R. Crumb’s publications, then trashing him and them. The difference is Crumb’s stuff sold, like crazy, and hers didn’t, like crazy. A large part of the appeal of underground comix, for better or worse, is T&A and gratuitous sex. Being a ‘libber, Trina couldn’t capitalize on these tropes and instead depended on lecturing people about feminism as a selling point. Needless to say, she wasn’t too successful. Basically, fuck her, but here’s some of her comics. Her stuff is so ignored it’s almost impossible to find any info on them.
