Wimmen's Comix   (1972)
Search for 'Wimmen's Comix' on eBay

Publisher: Last Gasp

Publication Date: 1972 - 1992

Country: United States

Language: English

Notes:
Capitalizing on the at least creative success of It Ain't Me Babe, Last Gasp became a home for a variety of different women who saw the opportunity to find some steady work in a female-dominated environment. Their initial goal became the regular publication of sequential art entirely created by women.

Toward that end, they started this magazine, but set it up in an entirely different way than was the norm in the comics industry. Instead of having a single editor handing out assignments, they opted for something they called a "comics collective". In this system, no one member of the group was really in charge. The editorship of the work rotated around the membership, so that no one vision dominated the work.

This resulted in what might charitably be called a leisurely release schedule. Over 20 years, only 17 issues were ever produced.

By the end, it had become difficult to hold the group together. In fact, by the last issue, the ability of the current editor to shape the content in any direction she saw fit resulted in a slight name change. The title finally became "Wimmin's Comix", because the then-editor didn't feel it appropriate that the title contain the word "men".

Nevertheless, this title is extremely important not only because it was an example of female leadership in the American comics industry, but also because it was the launch pad for several important comic careers.
