You might know the story of Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger—but chances are you’ve never heard (or seen!) anyone tell it like Seattle alternative-comics master Peter Bagge. The Harvey Award-winning author of the comic series Hate launches Women Rebel, his graphic-novel biography of social and political maverick Sanger, in a slideshow focusing on her activism and how the book came together, with original sample pages. Then, in conversation with Cienna Madrid of The Stranger, Bagge expands on the life of the birth-control activist, educator, nurse, mother, and protofeminist, making Sanger whole and human and showing how her flaws fueled her fiery activism just as much as her compassionate nature did.
