Feminax und Valkyrax, by Franziska Becker

Franziska Becker was born in Mannheim, Germany, and studied to be an art teacher. In 1977, she got involved with feminist magazine Emma, for which she started doing comics and cartoons. Soon her work became popular, not only with feminists but with a broader public. Her work is collected in 'Mein Feministischer Alltag' (1980), 'Feminax und Valkyrax' (1992 - the feminist answer to 'Asterix and Obelix') and 'Coole Zeiten' (2000). In 1988, Becker was awarded the Max und Moritz Prize. Becker now works as a freelance artist for several magazines, including Emma and Stern.
