Who run the world?

Think comics have always been a sausage fest? Think again! This book goes decade by decade to show the strong, varied leading ladies of the medium, starting with the birth of the industry in the 1930s. Full of familiar faces, obscure characters, and classic artwork, this book proves that a woman's place is definitely in the pages of a comic book - solving crimes (and occasionally committing them), saving the world (and occasionally threatening it), and generally being a total bada**.
Icons like Wonder Woman, Batgirl and Ms. Marvel (Carol Danvers) take their place in history alongside newer faces like Jessica Jones, Ms. Marvel (Kamala Khan), and even Ramona Flowers. Costumed crime-busters like Miss Fury, super-spies like Tiffany Sinn, sci-fi pioneers like Gale Allen, and even kid troublemakers like Little Lulu join the ranks of powerful protagonists. Each decade's review looks at industry trends and the evolving role of female characters, ending with a spotlight featuring the top icon of that decade. And before you worry - of course Squirrel Girl makes the list. She is literally "unbeatable," after all. That qualifies as pretty spectacular!
