If you've been keeping an eye on our shop, you may have noticed that our comics and graphic novels have been removed, but never fear, this is only temporary! We are preparing for a big move, and in the meantime our store will be down for about two months. We will slowly be adding inventory as we get things situated, so bear with us! As we decide what we should stock in the shop, we would love your feedback, so always feel free to send us an email or leave us a message on Facebook or Instagram!

Comics of Alison Bechdel: From the Outside In
(W) Janine Utell (A/CA) Alison Bechdel
Alison Bechdel is both a driver and beneficiary of the welcoming of comics into the mainstream. Indeed, the seemingly simple binary of outside/inside seems perpetually troubled throughout the career of this important comics artist, known for Fun Home, Are You My Mother?, and Dykes to Watch Out For. This volume extends the body of scholarship on her work from a range of interdisciplinary perspectives. In a definitive collection of original essays, scholars cover the span of Bechdel's career, providing insights on major themes in Bechdel's work, such as gender performativity, masculinity, lesbian politics and representation, trauma, life writing, and queer theory."

What does ""Brother"" want? And could she even stop him if she tried?
