Breaking Up is Hard to Do

Book Review: “The Supergirls” by Mike Madrid

I was given The Supergirls: Fashion, Feminism, Fantasy, and the History of Comic Book Heroines for Christmas by my lovely wife. She was really excited for me to read the book because feminism and comic books are two of my favorite topics. Unfortunately, I was disappointed by this book.
