"In this book, many of the depictions of what a girl gang is are not the most admirable. They are often belligerent, rude, violent, and lewd. But it sure does make for great art and entertainment. However, if you can overlook the vices of the girl gang, you'll find their best aspects to be those shared with a roller derby team: a devil-may-care sense of fun, unassailable confidence, and a formidable sense of camaraderie." This explosive collection features more than 400 roller derby and girl gang-inspired artworks from 52 of today's most kick-ass artists from around the world. With posters, logos, fan art, pinups, and more, Roller Derby / Girl Gang serves as a scrapbook of rough-and-tumble, fun-loving girls banding together to take on the world. Includes a playlist of favorite bad-girl anthems curated by the artists, lists of their all-time favorite girl gangs, and a foreword by Samara Pepperell, a.k.a. Lady Trample.
