Comic Artist Alison Bechdel: The Personal Is Political

Monday, 19 December 2011 10:10 By Anne Elizabeth Moore and Gabrielle Gamboa, Truthout | Graphic Journalism

The final installment of Anne Elizabeth Moore's exclusive interview with Alison Bechdel appears on Ladydrawers today, illustrated by Gabrielle Gamboa. The bestselling and critically acclaimed author of "Fun Home" and "Dykes to Watch Out For" acknowledges the larger challenges impacting all cartoonists today, like being a self-taught artist dealing with a rampantly professionalizing industry, or working with pen and ink in the digital age.

"Comics are a sort of mental illness," she says—and she may have a point.
