Peter Bagge is the Harvey Award-winning author of the acclaimed alternative comic series Hate. A regular contributor to Reason magazine, Bagge got his start in comics in the magazine Weirdo. He presents Woman Rebel: The Margaret Sanger Story, a factual yet fun graphic biography of the founder of Planned Parenthood. Bagge humanizes Sanger in his signature cartoony style, showing how both her compassionate nature and her flaws inspired her trailblazing activism and legacy.
