Quick read, as most vignettes, if not all, are under 3 pages long. Unfortunately, I already knew most of the women featured. Moreover, I was expecting at least slightly more critical examination. Given the above, this text definitely skews younger, say for a readership in their early teens.
Wonderful author Jane Yolen and her daughter Hiedi E. Y. Stemple tell about history's bad girls and debate in comic book format on whether these women were merely misjudged or truly Bad to the Bone. Short & cleverly presented.
A juicy, hilarious primer on female villains in history. Recommended for grades 6+.

Learn the true stories of female villains through history!
- Andrea Lipinski
Fun style of writing. It's like the beach read of historical villanesses... good reference material at the end too, there are some of these histories that I'd like to read more about, and will do so now that I've gotten the snapshot version from Jane Yolen and her daughter. The interplay between the two authors was also comical (and not just because it was presented as a graphic novel).
I can see if the authors got their research from anywhere else instead the researched on Wikipedia of all places.
