Looking forward to reading this.
Alison Bechdel may well be the most important cartoonist working today.
With the publication of Are You My Mother?, her amazing new memoir, Bechdel exceeds the considerable achievement of her 2006 masterpiece Fun Home, bringing psychic life to the page like no one else and finding innovative pictorial ways of mixing narrative accessibility with theoretical sophistication.
The whimsical speech of Jedi Master Yoda may have progressed from endearingly eccentric to Jar-Jarringly annoying in recent years and in recent films, but the 900-year-old’s memorable dialogue and that of other characters from theStar Wars saga has been somewhat redeemed by cartoonist Adam Watson with some inspiration from an unlikely source: Dr. Seuss,who really should have created a book about something called a Nerfherder.
