Here too are sixty of the newest strips, never before published in book form. Her brilliantly imagined 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. Bechdel fuses high and low culture -- from foreign policy to domestic routine, hot sex to postmodern theory -- in a serial graphic narrative suitable for humanists of all persuasions.

Alison Bechdel's graphic lesbians, who first appear in , simultaneously come out together and bid their audience adieu in the volume The Essential Dykes to Watch Out For. These two brilliant books form a complementary pair that demonstrates how contemporary queer literature is reformulating literary genres. Bechdel shapes the differing generic forms of her two books with regard to their structures, psychologies, epistemologies, ethics, and endings. The apparently opposite tragic and comic modes of Fun Home and The Essential Dykes to Watch Out For inflect one another in new queer mixed forms that show the ways that genre is always historically grounded. In both these books Bechdel bends genres as they respond to the contours of queer lives, with thwarted recognition scenes, marriages that are not happy endings, happy endings that are not marriages, and multiple meditations on pride, shame, solidarity, and secrecy as the comic construction of lesbian community inverts tragic isolation.
The strip, which ran from to , was one of the earliest ongoing representations of lesbians in popular culture and has been called "as important to new generations of lesbians as landmark novels like Rita Mae Brown 's Rubyfruit Jungle and Lisa Alther 's Kinflicks were to an earlier one". DTWOF chronicled the lives, loves, and politics of a fairly diverse group of characters most of them lesbians living in a medium-sized city in the United States, featuring both humorous soap opera storylines and biting topical commentary.
