"As an adaptation Lulu is an education on the strengths of comics; as a dialogue on sex across the years between Wedekind and Roberson, this is a thrill." - Emmett O'Cuana, THE MOMUS REPORT
"LULU translates into graphic storytelling terms Wedekind’s meditation on sexual repression and its role in facilitating exploitative seduction with all its disturbing ferocity intact." - Martin Pasko, from the introduction.
You might think she's a femme fatale. But then you'd have it backwards.
At last collected in print, the first volume of acclaimed cartoonist John Linton Roberson's adaptation of the notorious sex tragedy by Frank Wedekind (author of Spring Awakening) and adapted by Walerian Borowczyk, Lou Reed, G.W. Pabst and Alban Berg (and banned by the Nazis as "degenerate"). Now in comics for the first time. Also included, a full collection of production sketches and other drawings, and a brand-new introduction from award-winning writer Martin Pasko. SUGGESTED FOR MATURE READERS.
In addition to the most recent Sarah's Scribbles fan favorites and dozens of all-new comics, this volume contains illustrated personal essays on Sarah's real-life experiences with anxiety, career, relationships and other adulthood challenges that will remind readers of Allie Brosh's Hyperbole and a Half and Jenny Lawson's Let's Pretend This Never Happened. The same uniquely frank, real, yet humorous and uplifting tone that makes Sarah's Scribbles so relatable blooms beautifully in this new longer form.
