The Adventures of Gyno-Star

Gyno-Star

The Comic

The Adventures of Gyno-Star is a parody strip which pokes fun at the conventions of superhero comics, while also spoofing politics and society. It follows the exploits of Gyno-Star, a feminist superhero whose slogan is "fighting the forces of evil and male chauvinism." Although the comic's point-of-view is distinctly feminist, the strip is not so much ideological as it is satirical and irreverent. It's an equal opportunity send-up.
