Julie Doucet: How Does It Feel to Be Placed Among the Comic Greats?

Tuesday, 14 February 2012 03:57 By Aidan Koch and Anne Elizabeth Moore, Truthout | Graphic Journalism

This week in "Ladydrawers" (catch up here), we have the third installment of our interview with one of the most important and talented female artists in North America - Julie Doucet. As she told us in the first segment, she left the comics industry after 12 years not because she was forced out for any visible acts of sexism, but because of what she called the "all-boys crowd," and personal jealousies had become a drain. In our second strip, Doucet touched on the economic issues of comics and her own fame. In this segment, she talks about her role as a feminist icon and her decision to represent young women's self-destruction and sexuality to a mostly male audience.
