    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. I'm liking the full version so much more than the "essential" added storylines, particularly the shrink, are great.

    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.

    By this book, Harriet is having a seriously bad time as Mo seems to be falling in love with either therapy or her therapist and they haven’t had sex for a month. Is it fear of growing apart? Mo’s great idea is they move in together – cue for therapist to put head in hands. Meanwhile, the disabled artist gets the senior job at the bookstore – frustration!

Is it fear of growing apart? Mo’s great idea is they move in together – cue for therapist to put head in hands. Meanwhile, the disabled artist gets the senior job at the bookstore – frustration! Ginger may be about to get a girlfriend – but she seems to go for the unobtainable, long distance type – will Malika finally get beyond being a penpal?? And is Clarice and Toni’s commitment ceremony a cop-out to patriarchal attitudes or a great leap forward and an example to us all? Meanwhile, Mo’s serial monogamy in a small community makes for a complicated network diagram. And in these terrible times, what is there to celebrate on New Year’s Eve, Mo wants to know, when really Harriet would like her to get out of the bath and get to the party before midnight.

    Highly entertaining. In my opinion, this serial doesn't hold a candle to the flame that is Bechdel's masterpiece, Fun Home, or its follow up, Are You My Mother? That said, it's been fun to lose myself in this comic, and the bonus feature in the back, Serial Monogamy, is thought provoking and resonant. But MAN, I would not have wanted to date Bechdel in her early thirties. Though I do find her self deprecation, and her transparency about being pretty neurotic and pessimistic, to be endearing.

    I always enjoy Allison Bechdel's work, and this volume of Dykes to Watch Out For didn't disappoint! funny & engaging, I want to read the entire series. This volume touched on interpersonal plot as well as larger political themes and it just left me wanting to be a part of this quirky group of friends.

    I love these comics. And I like that I'm reading them 25 years after they were originally published - it's a time capsule into the politics of 1992. I kind of want to tell them - just wait!!

    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.

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 I could ever express. On this book the major topics are the beginning of Mo's therapy, monogamy, Clarice's affair with Ginger, Clarice and Toni's wedding, Lois relationship with an older woman that already have a girlfriend, etc etc etc. And of course the usual social critic thinking in every short story that makes this book series really worth reading. <3

    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 Really enjoying this, but it is depressing to read about the politics of 1990 and see that little or nothing has changed.

They just whip everyone into a frenzy over 'protecting the American way of life' and call Saddam Hussein 'Hitler' to boost their ratings!" SOUND FAMILIAR? Sigh...

    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. 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.

    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.

    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!
