Bio:
A bright new star in the graphic novel category, Alison has been a careful archivist of her own life and kept a journal since she was ten. In 1983 she began drawing Dykes to Watch Out For which has been described by Ms. as “one of the preeminent oeuvres in the comic genre, period.” The strip is syndicated in fifty newspapers, translated into several languages, and collected in a book series with a quarter million copies in print. Bechdel’s most recent book, Fun Home (Houghton Mifflin), which is her first memoir, is a national bestseller and was one of the most highly praised books of the year, including two stellar reviews in The New York Times.


Date of Birth: September 10th, 1960
Birthplace: Lock Haven, Pennsylvania, USA
