Is this the story of the Amazon Women's Bookstore, back when it was on Loring Park, back in the 90's, back when Slick Willy was president? Ya gotta read it, to find out ! (Imagine a comic book that weighs more than your kid brother!)

Pretty fascinating. Reminds me of my somewhat counter-culture youth. (t takes a surprising time to read; it's quite long and dense, especially when adding in perusing the expressive drawings. ) Touching in places. Lots and lots of criticism of American politics, which interested me less. Anybody who's spent a of time with radical feminists and political types will find lots that they recognize.

A good writer and illustrator, but would appeal to a reader more interested in American gender politics.

Lesbian soap opera, graphic novel style!

This comic is about lesbians, sex, the changing sexual politics, and the unchanging party politics over the last 30 years. Alison Bechdel is the best. Her art has gotten so much better over the years, and her character development is incredible, considering that each comic is one-page long. I have always related to the characters in the comics (although I am heterosexual) and have reread them over and over through the years. Highly recommended!
