Feminist Flashback #20

For Christmas, one of my best friends (whom I've known since 2nd grade) gave me a new collected edition of Alison Bechdel's comic strip, The Essential Dykes to Watch Out For. I've always loved DTWOF and this collection is awesome, starting with some of her earliest strips from 1983 and leading all the way up into the present. Her comics are smart and funny and incisive, interrogating everything from gender and sexuality to politics, queer or otherwise. And, hence, for today's Feminist Flashback (one day late, sorry!), I present one of Bechdel's Dykes to Watch Out For strips from 2002 (click on the image to enlarge). Check out her website for more.

Hey, I got that collection for Christmas, too, from my mother. What a fun book.
