So what is evil? What makes a person a “villain?” Is it intent to harm…or is it something deeper than that?
Each one of the thirteen authors in this amazing collection has taken a completely different approach to answering this question. They have gone above and beyond expressing the idea of evil and supervillainy. They get to the bottom of why villains are the way they are, and what they hope to gain from it. These are dangerous women wielding Absolute Power… and they’ll be glad to let you know exactly why you should fear them.
Cover by Agnes Czaja, introduction by lesbian comics tastemaker Erica Friedman.
