The HC wiki last edited by Billy Batson on 08/13/14 11:27AM View full history

From the author of Fun Home comes the story of the lives, loves, and politics of cult fave characters Mo, Lois, Sydney, Sparrow, Ginger, Stuart, Clarice, and others! For twenty-five years Bechdel's path-breaking Dykes to Watch Out For strip has been collected in award-winning volumes, syndicated in fifty alternative newspapers, and translated into many languages. Now, at last, The Essential Dykes to Watch Out For gathers a selection from all eleven Dykes volumes. Here, too, are sixty of the newest strips, never before published in book form. Settle in to this wittily illustrated soap opera of the lives, loves, and politics of a cast of characters, most of them lesbian, living in a midsize American city that may or may not be Minneapolis. Her brilliantly imagined countercultural band of friends - academics, social workers, bookstore clerks - fall in and out of love, negotiate friendships, raise children, switch careers, and cope with aging parents.

This volume collects the greatest / some of the greatest DTWF-comic strips. In this book is:

  • Politics mindled with lesbians.
  • Relationships.
  • Great art.
  • Joyosly funny and sarcastic jokes.
  • Drama.
