Heroic Girls is proud to present Lady Comic Book History, a podcast devoted to exploring the history of female comic book characters both past and present. Lady Comic Book History is hosted by comics historian Alexandrea Sams.
This episode, Sams isn’t examining a single character, but rather an entire year: 1941. Fans of female heroes will recognize 1941 as the year that Wonder Woman was introduced. But before she talks about the Amazonian princess, Sams covers the forgotten female heroes that came before her.
Today we are diving into the women of 1941, a few side characters that definitely didn’t stand the test of time set the tone for all forgotten heroes after them. But before we get to talk about one of the biggest female heroes of all time we must talk about the women that surround her.
