Divas Dames & Daredevils author Mike Madrid on Words & Pictures

Divas, Dames & Daredevils: Lost Heroines of Golden Age Comics is the new collection of classic adventure stories by writer and editor Mike Madrid, who celebrates the plucky, exotic, and sometimes just plain odd female protagonists who populated the pages of American comics between the 1940's and 1960's.  Unlike Wonder Woman, Mary Marvel, and Sheena, Queen of the Jungle, these characters had their brief moment in the sun then vanished into obscurity.

Trina Robbins says, "In one beautifully designed collection, [Mike Madrid] reprints the blood-and-thunder stories of twenty-eight Golden Age comic book heroines."  And Stan Lee adds, "Mike Madrid gives these forgotten superheroines their due.  These 'lost' heroines are now found - to the delight of comic book lovers everywhere."
