Bryan Lee O’Malley sketch for our daughter, drawn in a blank Little Golden Book at MOCCA a bunch of years back. Need to re-scan this one, too.
PIX 2014 is honored to welcome Trina Robbins. Widely considered comics’ premiere feminist, she began her career in the world of science fiction and fantasy illustration in NYC, before moving to San Francisco in 1970, where she led the charge of inserting a much-needed feminist sensibility into the nascent underground comix scene. A creator, editor and, later, historian of drive and talent, she made an immediate mark by putting together the first all-woman underground comic book, It Ain’t Me Babe. Two years later she was a member of the founding collective behind Wimmen’s Comix(later Wimmin’s Comix). She continued to regularly write, draw and edit comics for the next two decades, and continues to be involved in comics production to the present (check out a chronological list of her comics work here: http://comicbookdb.com/creator_chron.php?ID=3080 ). The last twenty years has seen Trina evolve into widely read historian and archivist of the important contributions made by women to the first century of American comics.

Don’t forget her new book Pretty in Ink!

My contribution to the Usagi Yojimbo book & auction to benefit the great Stan Sakai.
I remember that 20 years ago Stan asked me to do a drawing in his sketchbook at Mid-Ohio Con. I did a little drawing of Kabuki & Usagi.
Please order this book in honor of Stan. Here is an opportunity to help out one of the legends in creator-owned comics.
Stan Sakai can use your help.
For nearly 30 years, Stan Sakai’s Usagi Yojimbo has set a high-water mark for creator-owned comics.
Stan’s wife, Sharon, has battled a debilitating illness for some time; after an extended hospital stay and convalescence, she is now back home, but her condition requires 24-hour care and medicines that cost more than their insurance covers.
If you’d like to help now— You can contribute at the link.
Stan has been kind to me since the early days of Kabuki, and I got to know him and his wife Sharon more when we did a signing tour in Paris & Angouleme, France in 2001.
