Heather Goldman - Women of the Galaxy - Reference Book

My favorite part about this unique and beautiful book is that the characters that are featured aren’t limited to the ones we see on the big screen. Roughly half (if not more) of the strong females that are mentioned have debuted in Expanded Universe content like novels and comics. There were so many names I’ve never even heard of and I was ecstatic to learn about them all. Many of the entries even shed some light on the actress or author behind the character, showing the reader that great strides have been made for women outside of the fictional galaxy they had a hand in creating. You can open this book to any page and find yourself a quality role model for fans of all ages. If anything, grabbing Women of the Galaxy is worth it just for the unique and stunning art. Many characters have found their first visual appearance within these pages, and that’s one for the books!
