This is the tenth collection of work from Bechdel's signature comic strip, Dykes to Watch Out For. In this volume, Mo, everybody's favorite curmudgeon, blithely rants about Dr. Laura, Donald Rumsfeld, gay Enron execs, and the pernicious effects of Frogger, while her cozy counterculture community is quickly shifting beneath her feet. Her job is in jeopardy as the customer base of Madwimmin Books defects to the chains. Her ex, Clarice, is displaying symptoms of soccer mom-itis. Her best friend, Lois, has announced her new name is Louis. And her old pal Sparrow considers whether having a baby with her boyfriend will compromise her identity as a radical lesbian feminist. Meanwhile, Toni doesn't know what to do when Clarice's George W. Bush-induced depression lasts long after the inauguration, and in the wake of 9/11, her friends square off on questions of idealism, violence, compassion, patriotism, and dissent

1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 133 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the ninth collection of work from Bechdel's signature comic strip, Dykes To Watch Out For. In this volume, Mo's having a touch of performativity anxiety--a post-feminist, post-gay kind of moment--as she considers a panoply of possible gender permutations.

Irksomely earnest Mo makes her debut in this, the second collection of work from Bechdel's signature comic strip.

Invasion of the dykes to watch out for by Alison Bechdel( Book )

4 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 99 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"There's definitely an invasion afoot in the latest installment in Alison Bechdel's Dykes to Watch Out for series, but just who's invading whom is unclear. Are Mo and her friends having an impact on the world or merely splattering on its windshield? Mo is forced to work her way through library school by slinging best sellers at Bounders Books-N-Muzak. Sparrow is ambivalent about new motherhood. Clarice and Toni discover 10-year-old Raffi jacking ears and picking up prostitutes on his best friend's computer. And Sydney's first mammogram yields some very bad news. If this isn't enough to turn your hair gray, it all unfolds against the grim rainbow-colored backdrop of the Homeland Security Advisory System. Join our conflicted friends as they struggle to save this fragile, fearful planet with attachment-parenting, patriotic dissent, good sex, library cards, and a dedicated resistance to the forces of order and decency wherever they rear their ugly heads."--Publisher's description

Sensationell ist die Form, in der die Geschichte erzählt wird: In Worten und Bildern, die sich zu einem Meisterwerk der Comic-Kunst zusammenfügen. Alison Bechdel, Autorin und Erzählerin von>>Fun Home<<, verstand in ihrer Jugend nie, warum ihr Vater, Bestattungsunternehmer und Englischlehrer an der örtlichen High School, offenbar seine Bücher mehr liebte als seine Familie. Sie leben in einem Haus aus dem Jahr 1867, stilvoll und detailversessen restauriert vom Vater. Als Alison 19 Jahre alt ist, kommt ihr Vater ums Leben. Selbstmord oder Unfall? Das wird sich nicht mehr klären lassen. Was aber ans Licht kommt, ist ein Geheimnis, das Vater und Tochter teilen: Beide sind sie homosexuell. Mit diesem Wissen nähert sich Alison in>>Fun Home<<ihrem Vater, den sie schon vor seinem Tod vermisste wie ein Amputierter sein fehlendes Glied
