Abstract
Long considered one of the most influential women in American independent comics,—although she left the field, and is Canadian—Julie Doucet finally receives a full-length critical overview of her work, from a noted chronicler of independent media and critical gender theorist. Doucet’s particular ingenuity and success, however, challenge the field of comics to reconsider its critical tendencies, and the cartoonist’s work additionally merits new models for addressing creator contributions. Grounded in a discussion of mid-1990s independent media and the corollary discussion of women’s rights that fostered it, this book addresses longstanding questions about Doucet’s role as a feminist figure, master of the comics form, and object of masculine desire, primarily by situating her oeuvre within a discussion of female-identified critics and comics creators. Doucet’s work is hilarious, charming, thoughtful, brilliant, and challenging even three decades on; it nearly demands, when considered in context, that we rethink the ways we talk about comics in general.
