Essential Dykes to Watch Out for by Alison Bechdel

Book Description

On publication in 2006, Alison Bechdel's Fun Home was hailed as one of the masterpieces of the graphic form. Time magazine chose it as the best book of that year and critics on both sides of the Atlantic praised it for its emotional complexity and the seriousness of its writing. Nick Hornby called it 'as satisfying a literary experience as you are likely to have this year'. Long before Fun Home, however, Alison Bechdel had been chronicling the lives of a small universe of cartoon characters in her strip Dykes To Watch Out For, which is syndicated in fifty alternative newspapers in the USA and has been published in eleven volumes. Now, at last, The Essential Dykes To Watch Out For gathers the best of those volumes, together with sixty of the newest strips. Bechdel's brilliantly imagined counter-cultural band of friends - academics, social workers, booksellers - fall in and out of love, negotiate relationships, raise children, switch careers and cope wtih aging parents. The Essential Dykes To Watch Out For fuses high and low culture - from foreign domestic policy to domestic routine, postmodern theory to hot sex - in a serial graphic narrative 'suitable for all humanist persuasions'.

Are You My Mother? by Alison Bechdel Are You My Mother?, Hardback (May 2012)

A voracious reader, a lover of music, an amateur actress, Alison Bechdel's mother is also a woman, unhappily married to a closeted gay man, whose artistic aspirations simmered under the surface of Alison Bechdel's childhood ...and who stopped touching or kissing her daughter goodnight, forever, when she was seven. This title presents her portrait.

Art of Jaime Hernandez by Alison Bechdel Art of Jaime Hernandez, Hardback (March 2010)

In 1981 two Mexican-American brothers self-published their comic book, titled "Love and Rockets", and 'changed American cartooning forever' according to "Publishers Weekly". This title's female protagonists, masterfully delineated with humor, candor, and realism, come to life within California's Mexican-American culture and punk milieu's heyday.
