This introduction to the volume places this book in relationship to culture, comics studies, feminist studies, and monster studies. The authors outline each chapter and explain their placement in sections around origins, agency and paradoxes; the body; child-bearing; childhood; and taking on the role of monster. This introduces the idea that women in, behind, or reading comics may be culturally positioned and perceived as monsters, but that they are also agents in their own story.

Keywords:   comics, feminist, monster, culture, women
