"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.
