alison bechdel - fun home


that is one of the best comics (beside A. Spiegelman and L. Trondheim) i have read in my life so far.
the story is about a tough father-daughter relationship which includes homosexuality, funerals and a complex family structure.by re-telling her hard way of growing up, she often links to books that played a certain role in both lifes. bechdel is a well-crafted author as well as a talented illustrator,humorous, ironic and absurd.
it took her 7 years to finish this piece of work, due to her search of pictures she used afterwards as a basis for her scribbles.
