Sweet Little Cunt : The Graphic Work of Julie Doucet

by Anne Elizabeth Moore Author

Canadian underground cartoonist and artist, Julie Doucet, is considered to be one of the most influential women in comics. In Anne Elizabeth’s Moore’s Sweet Little Cunt (winner of the 2019 Eisner Award for Best Academic/Scholarly Work About Comics), Doucet finally gets the full-length critical overview she so rightly deserves. With discussions of women’s rights and media in the context of the 1990s, this book examines Doucet’s role as a feminist and an accomplished comic’s artist, surveying her large body of work, spanning decades, that is often thoughtful, hilarious, charming, challenging, and always brilliant. Moore, herself, is an accomplished woman in her own right: award-winning journalist, bestselling comics anthologist, internationally lauded cultural critic, gender theorist, and noted chronicler of indie media.
