This may seem like really strange reading to some of you. I usually don't read graphic novels or comics (though I really should!), and I'm not a lesbian. I heard about Alison Bechdel via Feminist Frequency, who discusses the Bechdel Test for movies. If you're not familiar, the Bechdel Test has the following three rules:

(1) Does the movie have more than two named, female characters?
(2) Do they talk to each other?
(3) Do they talk to each other about anything other than their relationships with me...more
I don't remember this comic collection very clearly. There are so many of these books! I've read so many of them!
