It Ain’t Me Babe, Last Gasp, July 1970. Cover by Trina Robbins.

Read Emma Silvers’s thorough (and image-filled) write-up of the creators of It Ain’t Me, who went on to create Wimmen’s Comix.

From Silvers’s essay:

With Wimmen’s Comix, there were no cliques, no unspoken rules: Each issue had a loose theme (Outlaws, The Occult, Disastrous Relationships — even a 3-D edition.) In each issue, roughly half the book was reserved for any woman who wanted in; the collective solicited contributions on the back page. And every month the editors would meet at someone’s house to sift through the submissions.
