Description de l'ouvrage

4 décembre 2008

On publication in 2006, Alison Bechdel's Fun Home was hailed as one of the masterpieces of the graphic form. Time magazine chose it as the best book of that year and critics on both sides of the Atlantic praised it for its emotional complexity and the seriousness of its writing. Nick Hornby called it 'as satisfying a literary experience as you are likely to have this year'.

Long before Fun Home, however, Alison Bechdel had been chronicling the lives of a small universe of cartoon characters in her strip Dykes To Watch Out For, which is syndicated in fifty alternative newspapers in the USA and has been published in eleven volumes. Now, at last, The Essential Dykes To Watch Out For gathers the best of those volumes, together with sixty of the newest strips.

Bechdel's brilliantly imagined counter-cultural band of friends - academics, social workers, booksellers - fall in and out of love, negotiate relationships, raise children, switch careers and cope wtih aging parents. The Essential Dykes To Watch Out For fuses high and low culture - from foreign domestic policy to domestic routine, postmodern theory to hot sex - in a serial graphic narrative 'suitable for all humanist persuasions'.

Revue de presse

"So much more than a comic strip... No one comes close to Alison Bechdel" (The Times)

"This compendium is testament to a unique literary-graphic talent" (The Times)

"For 25 years Bechdel's path-breaking Dykes to Watch Out For comic strip has been collected in award-winning volumes. Now, at last, The Essential Dykes to Watch Out For gathers an irresistible selection from all 11 volumes" (Chicago Tribune)

"Ms. Bechdel began her strips... partly to provide ''an antidote'' to culture's image of gay women as ''warped, sick, humorless and undesirable.'' Boy, has she succeeded. Her crazy lesbians seem saner than the rest of us, and beyond beautiful" (The New York Times)

"The greatest lesbian soap opera... is Bechdels miraculously well-sustained chronicling of a circle of friends over the course of 20 years, Dykes to Watch Out For" (Booklist)

5.0 étoiles sur 5 L'Indispensable DTWOF!!!! 7 février 2009
Format:Relié
L'avant "Fun Home", un magnifique portrait collectif de personnages dont on a du mal à se séparer en fin de lecture. Le livre fermé, (oui il s'agit d'un livre, d'un roman, tant l'écriture occupe la même place que le dessin) on a envie déjà de s'y replonger.

le best-off d'un comic-strip relatant sur plus de 20 ans la vie d'une communauté d'amies lesbiennes radicales féministes.Un côté Bretecher des Frustrés, aussi hilarant, avec de la tendresse et de l'engagement politique en plus. Pour tous ceux qui croient que TOUS les Américains sont des abrutis finis.
Alison Bechdel a également réalisé un superbe récit autobiographique graphique, Fun Home.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Brilliant! The latest DTWOF book along with a hefty retrospective 11 novembre 2008
Par Gen of North Coast Gardening - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
Whether you've been anxiously awaiting the next installment after Invasion of the Dykes to Watch Out For, or have lost track of our favorite lesbian heriones and want to get caught up, this is the book for you.

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.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Essential Goodness 14 novembre 2008
Par Edward Aycock - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
And there they are on pages 76-77, the first DTWOF strips I ever saw. They were in a student run women's paper in the Fall of 1991, I had just arrived at the university and my life was about to change for the better. Therefore, it's impossible for me to be completely objective when I talk about this strip and its brilliant creator (channeler?), Alison Bechdel. At first I didn't know what to make of the strip - I feel like I walked through my first two decades in a haze because I was not used to a comic strip dramedy. It didn't take me long to fall in love with it. I bought all the collections that were available at the time (three books!), saw Bechdel's slide show when she came around to my school and even wrote her a letter - and she responded. I still have that letter.

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.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Good enough to keep, good enough to give away 25 novembre 2008
Par Alex Knisely - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
Some books you read and pass along; some books you read and keep; the best books are those that you read, keep, and buy copy after copy of to ensure that EVERYONE you know reads them too.

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.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Great anthology! Better enjoyed when "sipped" 30 septembre 2009
Par Misanthrope - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
Unlike most other comic-compilations, this shouldn't be flipped through in one sitting. There's simply too much: politics, relationships, psychology, emotions, and more. Pick a page, read, then give yourself time to digest; you'll enjoy it once it's percolated awhile. And that's the HUGE difference between this comic and most other mainstream strips. These are characters who REALLY think! (and in Mo's case, way, way too much). Intellectual, political, philosophical, and of course analytical, you'll be thinking, as well as laughing, for days after reading a single strip. About your own relationships, about how the wold could be different, about how different yet alike people are. But again, it's definitely a collection to be "sipped" rather than "gulped".
