Ep 50 - Fun Home
Shit gets a little dark this month, we're talking about the death of a child, the aids epidemic, revolution and civil war, and the suicide of a closeted dad. We’re getting personal, as we hold on for a month of autobiographical comics.
This week we are reading Fun Home, Alison Bechdel's story that deals not only with her own coming out as a lesbian, but her closeted father's life of secrets and his eventual suicide. The is also the basis for the Tony Award winning Musical of the same name.
Next month it's all about strong women. We're celebrating a month of women empowerment with Birds of Prey, Lady Killer, Ms. Marvel, and Cinderella: From Fabletown with Love.
