Hot, Throbbing Dykes to Watch Out For (DtWOF, #7)
After putting it off for years I'm gradually working my way through the Dykes to Watch Out for Series. This one is my favorite so far. In "Hot, Throbbing Dykes to Watch Out For", Madwimmin Books, the feminist book shop that several of the comic's characters work at is having trouble making ends meet and is threatened with closure. When the whole community rallies around the bookstore to help it raise money to keep it's doors open it's like a big liberal fairy tale. It's a story I've experienced with both a happy ending and a sad one many times before and it's captured realistically and poignantly. This volume also deals with the themes of gay adoption and coming out to Catholic parents. Not sure why I waited so long to read this comic. I am loving it so much. On to the next issue!
