Lily Renee: Comics Pioneer.

Lily Renee

Following up on the preceding posts about Fiction House comics’ WWII undercover agent, Senorita Rio, and in particular, young Austrian refugee Lily Renee, the artist most closely associated with that character:

Graphic Universe’s 2011 graphic novel Lily Renee, Escape Artist by Trina Robbins, Anne Timmons and Mo Oh tells the moving and inspirational story of this comic book pioneer the best way you can: in comic art form. This 96-page book is more or less a YA graphic novel and would be a terrific addition to a junior high or high school history or women’s studies class, not only telling Lily’s story, but also packed with backmatter on WWII, the Holocaust, war time comics, women in comics and more.
