Fruit of Knowledge GN (2018 Fantagraphics) comic books 2017-2019
Writtent by Liv Stromquist and Melissa Bowers. Art and cover by Liv Stromquist.
In this graphic nonfiction book, Swedish cartoonist Liv Stromquist traces how different cultures and traditions have shaped women's health and beyond. Her ponytailed avatar guides the reader from the darkest chapters of history to the lightest. Like humorists Julie Doucet (Dirty Plotte), Alison Bechdel (Dykes to Watch Out For), and Kate Beaton (Hark! A Vagrant), she uses the comics medium to reveal how far we haven't come.
