Trina Robbins on Lily Renee

I'm on record as admiring the hell out of Trina Robbins. A writer, artist, and historian remains a force in comics. Her new book, Lily Renee: Escape Artist tells the story of Lily Renee who grew up in Vienna, escaped the Nazis on the kindertransport, worked in a British hospital during the Blitz, escaped to New York to become a Golden Age comics artist. All before she turned 17. And in comics she was able to fight the Nazis she had escaped on paper. It's an amazing story. And it's always a pleasure to talk with Trina.
