"A mesmerizing tale of how an independent, intelligent woman can get trapped in a relationship with an abusive male.Told through the format of a graphic novel, Dragonslippers pulled me into the vortex of Rosalind Penfold's experience and didn't let go.
Why didn't someone think of telling this all too common story through a graphic novel before?"

- Judy Rebick, Journalist & Author


"Rosalind Penfold's words and images strike like an arrow deep into the poisoned heart of spousal abuse. Her visual shorthand -- raw with flashes of brilliance -- portray the relentless betrayals that destroy the victim without also annihilating the reader. Authentic and courageous."

- Sylvia Fraser, Author
