What a fun, nostalgic read, just as great as I remembered! ( )

I first saw a DTWOF comic in one of the campus newspapers of my hometown growing up. In the years of DTWOF comic strips that followed, I'd occasionally catch one posted online, or in another newspaper, or a few strips in a collection at someone's house. But the comics are intensely serialized (not making much sense as a standalone), the whole archive was never available online and only 527 comics were ever published in the 21 years of the strip, so it always seemed like I was catching a glimpse of an elusive whole. This collection is near-complete and the storyline finally manages to be cohesive. Don't get me wrong: this still reads like a serial, and threads drop and there are one-off jokes, but it reads a lot better as a collection.

Perhaps what I found the most interesting from a modern perspective was actually the politics. It was fascinating to realize that the things that the characters said about Bush (HW) and Clinton (Bill) strongly resemble the things that I've said about Bush (W) and Clinton (Hillary) and Trump and Obama, too, for that matter. And indeed, the protest wing of leftwing politics versus the run-for-office-wing versus the tear-your-hair-out-publicly wing have apparently always had the tension that is so apparent now. ( )

I can't believe I read this whole thing straight through. It's a tiny bit addictive. Oh, I started by flipping through and reading random ones, but I wasn't fooling anybody.

The introduction is the best part, so even if you're a DTWOF veteran....

Sam asked me what I found so interesting about it. On one level it's just a sprawling soap-opera of epic and gay proportions, so as a human being of course I'm drawn to it. Another bit is that I share Bechdel's fascination with queer people and our little worlds and worldviews.

She's so fucking smart. I want to meet her. ( )

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. ( )

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.
