At last, a funny, funky, durable complex heroine who is constantly taking a fresh and satirical look at an aspect of life that is sacred to someone. Lee Marrs has given us something that usually comes only in the best novels: a funny, tragic, personal, universal, fantasized, minutely realistic view of life that sends us on our way with a much bigger and better understanding of our own lives and the possibilities around us. – GLORIA STEINEM, feminist icon, co-founder of Ms. Magazine, co-founder of the Women’s Media Center and former sticky sweet bun addict.
When I opened this collection I was prepared for a herstory lesson, or a trip down memory lane. But instead I encountered a radiant and utterly contemporary character—a disheveled yet sensual young woman, outwardly confused but inwardly poised, an instinctive feminist out hustling for a job, experimenting with drugs, but mainly just trying to get laid. Step aside, Lena Dunham, Amy Schumer, and Broad City. Pudge, Girl Blimp paved the way for all of you. – ALISON BECHDEL, author of Fun Home and Dykes To Watch Out For, recipient of the Eisner Award and the 2014 MacArthur “Genius” Award.
About the Author
As the first woman to work for DC Comics AND Marvel simultaneously, Lee Marrs could have been a footnote in a Swedish graphics history book. But a cantankerous mouth and sense of humor led her to the undergrounds, where she was one of the founding mommies of the Wimmen’s Comix Collective. Lee’s a 2017 Eisner Award Nominee & a 1982 Inkpot Award winner and has been reprinted in nine countries. Best known for her Pudge, Girl Blimp series, some of her other work includes Batman, Wonder Woman and Indiana Jones. Her Emmy Award-winning secret identity was that of Prez of Lee Marrs Artwork, an art/digital animation company, for such clients as Apple Computer, IBM, Electronic Arts, Atari, Francis Coppola’s Omni Zoetrope Films, Children’s Television Workshop, Nickelodeon, and MTV. Lee is retired from Berkeley City College where she was Multimedia Arts Chair, passing on sneaky, effective techniques to new generations.
