Are You My Mother?


(a comic drama) By Alison Bechdel

A somewhat sequel to the surprisingly compelling Fun Home. Alison Bechdel, a comic book (really graphic novel) writer, artist, creator has illustrated another winning cover. Evocative of older, classic covers, it of course has a hand-made quality to the art, and hints of the story inside. An examination of her relationship with her mother, and womanhood. We see they typical instruments of beauty on the cover. The reflection in the mirror contains the title, begging the question is she phrasing this question to her mother or to herself in that mirror? Nicely done.

And of course, it immediately makes us think of another Are You My Mother?
