Abstract

Discusses the significance of portrayals of warrior women in modern fantasy art, particularly in comic books and their associated items. Notes the good and bad points of such portrayals and expresses the hope that the spiritual dimension present in characters such as Lewis’s Jill and Tolkien’s Éowyn will come to play a greater role in artistic portrayals of warrior women.
