Comic Book Resources interviews historian Trina Robbins, author of the upcoming Babes in Arms!
Comic Book Resources has recently interviewed Trina Robbins, the author of Babes in Arms, about her newest book! Check it out here.
Here's an excerpt from the interview:
"CBR News: Trina, your new book is about four women who drew comics during WWII -- though these are not the only four women, by any stretch.
Trina Robbins: As you may know -- or maybe you don't know -- as in every other industry the guys who were working in comics who were draft age either enlisted or were drafted. And as in every other industry, women filled their positions. There were more women during World War II working in comic books than there had ever been before. I think possibly because the editors were just smart enough to give them the right work, what they drew and tended to draw were strong, beautiful women who fought the Axis. These are four specific women who definitely, during the war, drew strong beautiful women fighting the Axis. That's "Babes in Arms.""
