The Spectacular Sisterhood of Superwomen: Awesome Female Characters from Comic Book History | Super Weird Heroes: Outrageous But Real! | The Legion of Regrettable Supervillains | The Mlj Companion | Divas, Dames & Daredevils | The Supergirls | Supergirls | The Secret History of Wonder Woman | The League of Regrettable Superheroes
Between the covers of Vixens, Vamps & Vipers, fans will rediscover the original bad girls of comicsâas fierce and full of surprises as they were when the comic book industry was born. From murderous Madame Doom to He-She, dubbed by io9 as âthe most unsung comic book villain ever,â Mike Madrid resurrects twenty-two glorious evildoers in fully reproduced comics and explores the ways they both transcend and become ensnared in a web of cultural stereotypes.
Among the deadly femme fatales, ruthless jungle queens, devious secret agents, double-dealing criminal masterminds, and gender-bending con artists are some of the very first women of color in comics. These women may have been overlooked in the annals of history, butâlike their superheroine counterparts in Divas, Dames & Daredevilsâtheir influence, on popular culture and the archenemies that thrill us today, is unmistakable.
Mike Madrid is the author of Divas, Dames & Daredevils, a ComicsAlliance and ComicsBlend Best Book of the Year, and The Supergirls, an NPR âBest Book To Share With Your Friendsâ and American Library Association Amelia Bloomer Project Notable Book. A San Francisco native and lifelong fan of comic books and popular culture, Madrid also appears in the documentary Wonder Women! The Untold Story of American Superheroines.
