This series as a whole is a classic, and the humor, attention to detail, poignancy, and social commentary are still strong. But this is easily my least favorite collection yet. In, I think, the previous collection, Toni chastises Clarice for letting her depression over Bush's election overwhelm her, yelling, "Life goes on!" I wanted to say the same thing to Alison Bechdel. The personal takes too much of a backseat to the political here, and major events in the characters' lives - Sparrow and Stu ...more

loved, obvi.
and maybe it's my fault for reading 4 Dykes to Watch Out For in two days, but this book in particular seems really pessimistic.
still...I'm fighting the urge to go buy some baggy shorts and hold them up with a thin belt.

I loved "Fun Home", but "Invasion" fell short for me. None of the characters had their own voices/points of view; they were all just some variation of Bechdel's liberal idealism. However, as someone too young to remember the early Bush years, I did enjoy reading her critical take on that era.

I enjoy Bechdel's whole series and have read them all many, many, many times. Bechdel's work is consistently funny, always politically astute, and even sexy, to boot, representation of lesbian life.

Lena left this in the hallway, so I read it. Slice-of-life in the mid-2000s friends. I think I need to read a little further back to know enough about the different characters and what's going on.

My favorite of the DTWOF so far, in large part because of the cutest trans youth scene ever in which a young trans girl (Janis) introduces her mom (Jasmine) to her trans boy boyfriend (Alex). !!!

Maybe it's the post-9/11 world in general. Maybe it's the war. Maybe it's because Mo is a librarian. Whatever. This one rocks. Well, they all kind of rock, but this one really rocks.

Not only is she a talented comic and writer, she is in touch with the pulse of modern politics, feminism, literature and of course, lesbians.

The last of the books (so far)! Finishing this book was like saying goodbye to good friends. I hope there will be another book.

As a gamer, I printed out the cartoon where Rafi plays Vice City. That sums it up.
Rafi's my favorite character.
