With a heavy heart, we bid farewell to Trina Robbins, artist, editor, and historian who etched her mark on the canvas of American comics. Her recent passing leaves a void in the world of creativity, but her legacy shines brightly, illuminating paths for generations to come.

Born in 1938 in Brooklyn to a family of Jewish immigrants, Robbins was drawn to the world of comics and science fiction from an early age. While her artistic journey initially led her to the realm of fashion design in the vibrant 1960s, her passion for storytelling found its true home within the pages of comic books.

It was in the 1970s that Robbins made her indelible mark on the comic book landscape. Amidst the backdrop of the burgeoning underground comix movement, she emerged as a pioneering force, challenging the status quo and amplifying the voices of women in a male-dominated industry. Her co-founding of It Ain’t Me, Babe, the first all-women underground comic publication, alongside Barbara 'Willy' Mendes, was a revolutionary act that paved the way for countless artists to follow.

Throughout her illustrious career, Robbins fearlessly tackled social and political issues, using her art as a tool for change. From her groundbreaking portrayal of Wonder Woman in the 1980s, where she breathed new life into the iconic superheroine with themes of empowerment and gender equality, to her founding of Friends of Lulu, a group dedicated to supporting women in comics, her contributions are immeasurable.
