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. Angst with her as she inquires: is gender essential? If she were a transsexual woman, a bisexual man, or a straight woman with a penchant for lesbians, would Mo still be a dyke to watch out for?

User Review  - Jean Marie Angelo - Goodreads

The political humor is dated, but the people and relationship humor is spot on. Her Fun Home graphic novel is becoming a Broadway play. Read full review
