Interview: Trina Robbins, editor, ‘The Brinkley Girls’
BY BOB ANDELMAN
This is my third year of being the ringmaster of the Mr. Media radio show and I’m starting to see previous guests return with new projects.
And that is certainly the case tonight, as cartoonist and historian Trina Robbins returns to the show to talk about her new project, The Brinkley Girls.
Trina was a great guest the first time around, talking about her original comic book character, GoGirl! This time, she’s here to promote a new Fantagraphics collection of full color art by Nell Brinkley, drawn between 1913 and 1940. It’s a beautiful coffee table book laden with history and significance for both comics and advertising.
