Review: The Great Women Superheroes

User Review  - Rebecca - Goodreads

While informative, this book is very much a product of 1996, and Robbins' analysis of the superheroines belongs firmly in that era. Her scholarship occasionally feels questionable, but honestly that may be because I have read other, more current books on the same topic. Read full review

Review: The Great Women Superheroes

User Review  - Robin Stcharles - Goodreads

I think Trina did some great research. Some of these Women Superheroes are still active and some aren't. I still found it a great read. I started to do research on the Women's Superheroes that aren't around anymore. Read full review
