I suspect that Barbara Slate's graphic novel "Getting Married and Other Mistakes" is a story to which many modern women can relate: heavy pressure on little girls to marry rich (but not smart); overbearing mothers who see college as a route to an M-R-S, not an M-B-A; recognizing the difference between sex and love; and just how creepy a Barbie Bride lamp can be on an adolescent girl's bedside table.
Barbara, who joins me today, is a legend in the comic book and graphic novel industry, a place where only a handful of women have made a name for themselves. She has worked for Marvel, DC, Archie and Disney Comics over the years and is the author of You Can Do a Graphic Novel. She is also profiled in the book, A Century of Women Cartoonists.
