Goddesses with Attitude

By Trina Robbins

Eternally Bad is a wickedly fun, irreverent tribute to mythological "bad girl" goddesses from around the world. Trina Robbins, one the most famous feminist cartoonists of our time, takes off the white gloves and relates the tales of twenty nasty, bitchy, totally amusing and utterly enjoyable goddesses. The earliest proponents of sexual equality, they slip mickeys into drinks, sleep with dwarves, have catfights with their sisters, get even when they get dumped, fight, kill, and generally have a great time.
