More About Ink-stained Amazons and Cinematic Warriors by Jennifer K. Stuller
 
 
 
Overview
In 'Ink-stained Amazons and Cinematic Warriors', author Jennifer Stuller looks at the role of superwomen in modern mythology, tracing their development in comics, in films and on television over the course of the past seven decades. From Wonder Woman to Buffy Summers, Emma Peel to Sydney Bristow, Charlie's Angels to The Powerpuff Girls, Superwomen are more than just love interests or sidekicks who stand by their Supermen. In her new book, Stuller shows how the female hero in modern mythology has broken through the boy's club barrier of tradition and reveals the pivotal role of high-heeled crimefighters in popular culture. Featuring spies and sexuality, daddy's girls and super-mothers, this is a comprehensive, engaging and thought-provoking guide to female detectives, meta-humans and action heroines, as well as their creators, directors, performers, and consumers. The book also includes a glossary of modern mythic women, from Aeon to Zoë, as well as a foreword by acclaimed cultural commentator Roz Kaveney, author of 'Superheroes! Capes and Crusaders in Comics and Films' (published by I.B.Tauris, April 2008).
