THE CLASSIC GRAPHIC NOVEL, BACK IN PRINT
Back in print is the classic graphic novel by the acclaimed (though no longer working in comics) iconic artist Julie Doucet. In one of the first contemporary graphic novels, Doucet abruptly packs her bags and moves to New York. Trouble follows her in the form of a jealous boyfriend, insecurity about her talent, her worsening epilepsy, and a tendency to self-medicate with booze and drugs.
“[Julie Doucet is] creating some of the edgiest work about young women’s lives in any medium.” —PEGGY ORENSTEIN, The New York Times Magazine
