"For twenty-five years Alison Bechdel's path-breaking Dykes to Watch Out For strip has been collected in award-winning volumes, syndicated in fifty alternative newspapers, and translated into many languages. Now, The Essential Dykes to Watch Out For gathers a selection from all eleven Dykes volumes. Here too are sixty of the newest strips, never before published in book form." "Settle into this Wittily illustrated soap opera (Bechdel calls it "half op-ed column and half endless serialized Victorian novel") of the lives, loves, and politics of a cast of characters, most of them lesbian, living in a midsize American city that may or may not be Minneapolis." "Bechdel's countercultural band of friends - academics, social workers, bookstore clerks - fall in and out of love, negotiate friendships, raise children, switch careers, and cope with aging parents. The Essential Dykes to Watch Out For fuses high and low culture - from foreign policy to domestic routine, postmodern theory to hot sex - in a serial graphic narrative "suitable for humanists of all persuasions.""--BOOK JACKET.… (mais)

My first graphic novel -- I couldn't believe how addictive this style was! After finishing one page, the next one just needed to be read. It probably didn't help that Bechedel's characters -- Mo, Ginger, Sydney, Clarice, Lois, etc. -- are so likable, so relatable. I just felt like their friend, and I was so grateful that they accepted me into their lives.

I think, as the stories moved from the earlier, younger days of love-seeking debauchery into suburban stability, I lost a bit of interest. I liked the characters back when they were desperate, when they were not as tightly woven as before, when the spark of their friendships was still shiny hot. I also think Mo's shtick of avoiding real-life conversation with political intellectual drivel, though hilarious, was overdone, and it showed toward the end as more and more characters ended up doing the same thing.

I really enjoyed this. It was incredible to read a slice-of-life type comic that ran for over 20 years and to feel like I grew along with it. In many ways, it was because of how much the news of the day factored into much of the strip. I was but a grade-schooler when this debuted, which means I have a vague memory of the earliest stuff, but it was also refreshing to see people--even if they're fictional--critical in ways I never experienced as an 80s child/90s young adult. In that regard, too, it was also comforting/disheartening to be reminded of "the more things change, the more they stay the same" reading this collection while living in this era. But politics aside, Bechdel does a great job at keeping up the humor and whimsy even when the characters faced dark times. I came to love them all and wish the series continued to this day. ( )

between 3.5 and 4 stars. this is part soap opera and part educating the masses. there is so much going on here. relationships, friendships, living situations, family expansions, demonstrations for all kinds of liberal causes. it covers such a lot of time that we see them go from the iran contra affair and aids to obama vs hillary in 2008 and everything in between. what hasn't changed is that in 1987 they were talking about the environment and climate change, about republicans screwing over america in a million ways, about bush going to war. it was actually kind of an incredible reminder of all the terrible things that happened under both bushes (and under clinton, too). as bad as trump was, we can forget about how bad they also were. so much of the stuff we worry about now, they were worrying about then. which i guess is both good and bad. this was eye-opening in that way. the amount of politics discussed in these pages is actually quite impressive. i love how she sneaks commentary in in the background - on the newspapers headlines, the book spines, the t shirt slogans. it's in way more than just the speech and thought bubbles.

it was fun to see some alternative living arrangements, that are less typical in the regular world, but maybe that have been more common in outsider communities. it was nice to see issues be addressed (even if not in depth) as they became part of the conversation in the real world - like republican queers, transgender people and youth in particular, etc. the cast of characters was mostly thin but otherwise very diverse. except in sexuality. almost everyone in this book is queer. like they go to queer mechanics, lawyers, therapists, coffee bars, everything.

and a queer bookshop. until it was forced out by amazon and borders. i liked that she focused a little bit of time on that. feminist bookstores used to be an amazing thing, and they're mostly gone now. i'm glad she didn't ignore that. i do wish that jez didn't totally go away once the store closed, though.

as to the soap opera, it was fun to be with these people for a while. a few days for me, decades for them. i was surprised that mo ended up with sydney, and disappointed that in the end clarice and toni split. i think of all the characters i liked lois' arc the best, and found stuart the most surprising. i wish we'd seen more of jasmine and samia and jerry.

i didn't read these when they came out. this was my first time with them. but i'm assuming that what she's choosing to write about - 1 page every 2 weeks - reflects what the queer community was doing and talking about at that time. it's quite a piece of history for that alone. a real snapshot of what was important or on people's minds. and it really is something to see how little has changed from what was keeping politically engaged people awake at night in 1990 to now.

i'm glad to have this in a collection. it must have been a ride to read these in real time, waiting for each installment. ( )

This was a fun binge read - I felt like I was one of the gang after a while. I liked the way Bechdel pokes affectionate fun at her characters earnest radicalism. Kind of a lesbian Doonesbury. I'm probably about the same age as the characters, so I remember all those minute political details from the 1990's. I wish Bechdel would bring them back so we can see how they're doing in middle age (maybe grandparents!) during the Trump era. ( )

In the spirit of full disclosure, I am not a dyke. In fact, I'm male and straight (despite fairly often getting "bent out of shape," especially in the current political environment.) Nor have I, or do I feel a need to, "watch out for" any dykes. In my mind, they are free to roam the countryside as they please, without any interference or objection from me -- not that I would have any right to do so if I felt otherwise. So, here we are with a book that is a reassembly of the author's past work into a nearly seamless collective works volume, and, frankly, the 18-page introduction by the author is worth the price of admission all on its own, in my most humble opinion. But, "Wait there's more!" There are 390 daily graphic panels covering from 1987 through the election of 2008 in which a community of very distinct characters entertain and enlighten the reader. Yes, the book is nominally about lesbians and their nuclear families, but it is very much -- and arguably more -- about American liberals/progressives/leftists or whatever term suits your fancy lately. I'm not one for believing in reincarnation, but, in reading this book, I got the distinct feeling I might have been a late 20th century/early 21st century lesbian in a past life. Assuming any of the characters gave me even the time of day -- and they all seem extraordinarily free with forgiveness for past sins -- I think I would have fit in quite well. But that's just me giving myself the benefit of the doubt, I guess. So, if you happen to lean to your left when you feel the winds blowing, pick up the book and enjoy yourself. If you lean to the right, then, well, you wouldn't even be reading this review, would you? ( )

It’s a fascinating, addictive soap opera, especially as the reader grows to know all of these surprising women. Watching them move from starting their lives into becoming parents and worrying about careers is almost a generational saga; it’s distinctly the story of a community.
