Abstract
Continuing the discussion of how American queer gets translated into other cultures, Robert Gillett in his chapter also discusses work in the graphic genre. Dykes to Watch Out For, Alison Bechdel’s comic strip snapshots of lesbian life in the US, ran from 1983 to 2008, and were uniquely perceptive in charting the rise of queer in the lesbian community. In examining the German translations of these comics, Gillett concludes that they are rather more indebted than the original to a liberationist model of gay identity and suggests that they might fit into the category of the straight gay text established by Assab.
