Youve come a long way Bagge.

This is a great little graphic novel about a woman I had never even heard of before. She definitely was a lady ahead of her time and we could use a few more like her in this day and age........

Excellent comic telling of this fascinating figure's life. In my opinion, this is Bagge's best work.

Condenses events from Sanger's long life into one- or two-page scenes, frequently comical. The humor arises from her intense devotion to the cause of birth control, her stubborn, won't-suffer-fools personality, and the doltishness of her opponents. Along the way, Bagge takes great pains to extricate Sanger's reputation from the clutches of polemicists who have wanted to heave her into the eugenics dustbin. The final 20 pages of notes and commentary round out the portrait of Sanger as a misunderstood revolutionary. Annoyingly, the text-heavy art and the dense notes are both printed at an eye-straining reduced size.
