"This weighty and winning volume could well be titled 'Alison Bechdel's Greatest Hits.' It features faves from 11 past collections, as well as recent strips, and underscores why Bechel is at the forefront of the growing graphic movement." -- Seattle Post-Intelligencer
This long-awaited collection of comic strips by the internationally-acclaimed graphic-literary talent Alison Bechdel offers an acerbically funny insight into the lesbian culture of 1980s America. -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Taschenbuch.Alle Produktbeschreibungen

Hardcore fans will be delighted to see that we have an entire new book's worth of fresh, unpublished comics to get us up to date. I looked at how many comics each of the previous books has had, and we have an equal amount of new content in this one. But, for only a little bit extra, you get this thick, glorious retrospective which takes us through the entire series, giving us clips and the best highlights from over the years.
If you missed the last couple books - no worries - this will catch you up enough to enjoy the latest comics at the end. And if you've read everything and just want the latest book - you won't be disappointed with everything else included. I've read every book multiple times, and I enjoyed reading the entire thing as a lead-up to the new comics at the end.
Bechdel is my number one favorite cartoonist ever, and I'm not even a lesbian - I just find her characters are so human and so interesting that I connect with their lives deeply.
So if you read Fun House and aren't sure if you might like to move on to this series, I'd encourage you to pick up this book and give it a try.
It's great to see so many strips reproduced here, forming a running narrative of twenty years in the lives of the characters. Not all of the strips are here nor are the nifty little supplements that the older books included but for the first time reader, I don't think they'll feel the loss. They can also go and seek out some of the older books for completion.
This is one of the best graphic arts collections of the year.
You may not have been there all along, grabbing the fortnightly alternative paper from the top of the jukebox and leafing through it to see if a new episode of DTWOF had appeared - reading it with glee whilst ignoring the offer of the strikingly good-looking (YOUR GENDER HERE) to buy you a drink - but now you have your chance. Catch up. Read it straight through, or dip in again and again. It's the counterculture FRIENDS: You'll never get tired of DYKES TO WATCH OUT FOR.
Buy at least two copies, all right? And make not just your own but also someone else's Yuletide gay.
This "essential" collection doesn't include every strip, but it is close enough to get the full sweep of the story. It also doesn't include the bonus materials found in many of the smaller collections. My hope is that someday we will get a complete DTWOF collection - Bechdel's work is certainly important enough to warrant that treatment. Until that day, this high-quality volume is the best way to experience one of the greatest serial comics of all time.
