Respectful, informative, but often repeating information. Take that into consideration, but all-in-all a great read for a comic book fan.

Good story of a side of comic history I had not considered before. When I started reading comics I mostly read male superheroes as most of the female characters just did not seem interesting. Only in the past few years I have started reading comics again and Madrid's book really shows the sexism that drives these stories.

I downloaded this book on a whim after browsing through a lot of titles as I thought the name and summary sounded interesting and unlike anything else I had read before. Turns out I was right about that. This book gives a very thorough history of women in comic books, covering a wide range of decades, aspects and themes. I am by no means an expert in comics, I haven't even read a great deal of them, but this inspired me to read more widely after finishing it. The only suggestion I have is maybe include more on female villains, as I'm sure they have had an equally interesting progression in comics. Well worth listening to overall.
