  • There is an article in today's,12/3, New York Times about Alison Bechdel's comic strip called "Dykes to Watch Out For".

    Houghton Mifflin Harcourt has just published "The Essential Dykes To Watch Out For", price $25

    From the NYT article:

    "Plenty of readers, however, needed no introduction to Ms. Bechdel. For more than 20 years she has been the creator of “Dykes to Watch Out For,” a weekly comic strip, printed mostly in college-town alternative newspapers, about the fractious lives and loves of an articulate group of lesbians in a city that resembles Minneapolis.

    The strip is sexy, sometimes in an R-rated way — imagine “Doonesbury” with regular references to sex toys — and it’s political, in a feisty, lefty, Greenpeace meets PETA meets MoveOn.org kind of way. Ms. Bechdel’s lesbians wanted to impeach the first George Bush."

    There is a slide show from the comic in the NYT article.

  • Thanks for your comments on the Teenagers From The Future book; I'm curious to hear what you thought about my essay, the one on the fashion of the LSH. I'm Martín A. Pérez; aka MaGnUs, writer and fellow comic book internet radio producer/host (I hate the word podcast).
