Description

The Spice Girls reigned supreme as divas of the pop music world in the late 1990s, illustrating a stark contrast between their admittedly unpretentious and frivolous persona and the grunge rock and rap music of the time. They were five young women from England, (then four with the defection of Ginger), who espoused the credo of “Girl Power.”

Compiled by Queen Itchie, a columnist for NYPress, this magazine features the Spice Girls in comic strips that are loving tributes, scathing criticisms, and just plain bizarre, from alternative comic artists Peter Bagge, Gilbert Hernandez, Robert Crumb and many others. 

Sadly, this is not an adaptation of Spice World — which is one of the greatest movies ever made.
