Last Girl Standing – Trina Robbins’ Rock & Roll And Comics Memoir This Month From Fantagraphics
by Hannah Means Shannon
Fantagraphics are publishing Trina Robbins’ memoir of a life in Rock and Roll as well as in comics, Last Girl Standing, this September, and it will be the focus of some signing events on the West Coast.
The book will be 200 pages, in black and white with some color elements, and price at $19.99.
…at a time when other little girls dreamed of being nurses and secretaries, Trina Robbins’s ambition was to be a bohemian; and indeed she did. She chronicles a life of sex, drugs, rock ’n’ roll — and comics — in Last Girl Standing. From science fiction to the Sunset Strip, from New York’s underground newspapers to San Francisco’s underground comix: Trina Robbins broke the rules and broke the law. From dressing Mama Cass to being pelted with jelly babies as she helped photograph the Rolling Stones’s first US tour, from drunken New York nights spent with Jim Morrison to producing the very first all-woman comic book, this former Lady of the Canyon takes no prisoners in this heavily illustrated memoir.
