I'm liking the full version so much more than the "essential" added storylines, particularly the shrink, are great. I also really like how it gives you much more of a sense of place and time with all the added details. The Serial monogamy story at the end is also really great! Very glad I was able to find the original books versus the collection.

There was a time in my life when I spoke about the characters in these comics--Mo, Toni, Clarice, Sparrow, and all the rest--as if they were real people, as if they were my friends. That fact speaks to how real and how great both the writing and art are.

I'm probably going to give the same review to all of Bechdel's Dykes to Watch Out For.
hilarious, relevant, and political

I've been reading DTWOF in a totally random way, first from the middle, then from the end, then to the beginning. It just have to do with their availability in the library. but it looks like I'll never get my hands on the #1 and #5 book coz they don't have it ='( And the last one I am definitely going to order.

Anyway reading this one makes you have an insight of how this characters really come to life after all those years, they really grow older and more mature. I love Alison Bechdel more than

Quick read with a lot of interesting talking points and views of not only sexuality, but what it means to be a woman, and to be a lesbian. Really amusing and enjoyable at the same time.
Jul 10, 2008 Misha rated it really liked it
Really enjoying this, but it is depressing to read about the politics of 1990 and see that little or nothing has changed. Here is an example of a political harague that the character Mo goes on: "...And so Bush and his bloodthirsty buddies in the defense biz can play 'whose is bigger' in the Persian Gulf, and prove that we need even more money for military spending! And look at this! The media don't even question what we're doing over there! They just whip everyone into a frenzy over 'protecting ...more

So I own the Collected DTWOF, but I found this in a used bookstore in Saskatoon and have vowed to collect as many of the original comics as possible -- there are some strips that were left out in the anthology. This particular one has a side strip by Bechdel called "Serial Monogamy" which I especially enjoyed/overidentified with as per usual.

a good gay read, even if you're not gay. i did, however, resent the implication in the short "serial monogamy" that only lesbians are part of a great social experiment to transcend outmoded behavioral paradigms. i'm pretty sure the whole LGBT community is a part of that much-vaunted experiment.

Bechdel strains her characters through understanding their own internalized logic of oppression even after their supposed awakenings. That is a good way to keep new readers interested without having to understand back plots. Each strip entertaining even if it turns slice of life if not punchy.

My daughter bought this whole series and now I'm addicted. It's like the Archies of Lesbian culture. Now I am going to need a TV series to keep it going because I'm about to read the last one!
