This long-running SliceOfLife series by Alison Bechdel about the lives, loves, and politics of a group of lesbians in an [[WhereTheHellIsSpringfield unspecified midwestern town]] is one of the most popular of all LGBT comic strips. Originally introduced as a series of one-shot vignettes in 1983, the strip shortly moved to its serialized format with recurring characters. After writing the strip for more than 25 years, Bechdel put it on hiatus in 2008 to concentrate on her graphic memoir ''ComicBook/FunHome''. She later continued the series of memoirs with ''Are You My Mother'' in 2012.
