Synopsis:

In honor of the twenty-fifth anniversary of the ground-breaking comic strip series, Dykes to Watch Out For brings together a new collection of cartoons recounting the lives and loves of a diverse group of lesbian friends, in a volume that features selections from eleven previous volumes, as well as sixty strips never before published in book form.


Review:

"The greatest lesbian soap opera...is Bechdel's miraculously well-sustained chronicling of a circle of friends over the course of 20 years. Bechdel's comics autobiography FUN HOUSE (2006) has brought her much greater general attention than DYKES ever did, but make no mistake--the strip is her masterpiece." (Starred review.)

Ray Olson, Booklist, 11/01/2008

Review:

"Ms. Bechdel calls her strips 'half op-ed column and half endlessly serialized Victorian novel,' and that's not far off. I suspect that, over the years, 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."

Dwight Garner, New York Times, 12/03/2008

Book Description: Houghton Mifflin Harcourt (HMH), United States, 2008. Hardback. Book Condition: New. 241 x 207 mm. Brand New Book. From the author of Fun Home -- the lives, loves, and politics of cult fav 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 (with a quarter of a million copies in print), syndicated in fifty alternative newspapers, and translated into many languages. Now, at last, The Essential Dykes to Watch Out For gathers a ?rich, funny, deep and impossible to put down" (Publishers Weekly) 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 (Bechdel calls it ?half op-ed column and half endless serialized Victorian novel") 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. Bechdel fuses high and low culture -- from foreign policy to domestic routine, hot sex to postmodern theory -- in a serial graphic narrative ?suitable for humanists of all persuasions.".
