Glynnes Pruett owns Orange County's Best Comic Book Store (OC Weekly 2013), Comic Book Hideout in Fullerton, CA. In this episode we explore the intersection of sex and art, as we look at images of women in comics throughout history. How do comics reflect pop culture? How can you read American cultural history in Wonder Woman's costume? What's the connection between mutants and the civil rights movement? Blue suits or garter belts? Why don't more women read comics? When men draw women... Cool World, Roger Rabbit... What kind of marketing strategy works best for women entreprenuers in a "boy's club"? Who's the coolest chick in comics? Pornography and Sailor Moon...What women are making waves creating art? Did comics escape the general suckage of the 90s? Speaking of suckage, we even hit on Twilight. and so much more...
