By far the most substantial entry yet published under the Critical Cartoons imprint, Uncivilized Book's series of comics analysis, Elizabeth Anne Moore's Sweet Little Cunt provides fresh perspectives and important insights into the life and work of Julie Doucet, the most significant North American female comics creator of the late 1980s and early 1990s. Doucet's highly imaginative, idiosyncratic, absorbing, labor intensive, trailblazing, gender-bending comics, made primarily for her personal (single-creator) anthology series, Dirty Plotte (Note: for those unaware, plotte is French for cunt, allowing Doucet's series to slide under the Anglophone radar – and thus the title of Moore's book) were game changers in more ways than one. Her imagination, degree of craft, size of output, and artistic fearlessness put her creative talent on par with the best comics being done during that time and conclusively cracked the alternative/independent comics boys' club. A true original, Doucet explored – and contested – definitions of gender and mental health in ways at once humorous and scary, but ultimately empowering. Anyone looking for an intellectual framework within which to better appreciate her work need look no further: this is it.
