The Comic That Established Alison Bechdel's Career
MORE DYKES TO WATCH OUT FOR
By Alison Bechdel
First printing of this second collection of the long-running lesbian comic strip, the origin of the Bechdel Test, and "one of the pre-eminent oeuvres in the comics genre, period" (Judith Levine).
MORE DYKES TO WATCH OUT FOR
"But the true glory of the lesbeian experience is revaled by our thrilling and extraordinary versatility in times of crisis."
Humorous, hopeful, and real, MORE DYKES TO WATCH OUT FOR continues the stories of a group of lesbians in urban US America. "'Dykes to Watch Out For' has been as important to new generations of lesbians as landmark novels like Rita Mae Brown's 'Rubyfruit Jungle' (1973) and Lisa Alther's 'Kinflicks' (1976) were to an earlier one" (Garner). All of Bechdel's early work is uncommon in first printings.
