Joey's gender transition stories are everything that you could want in a minicomic. They're honest, well-drawn, compelling, and at least once an issue, LOL funny. I don't say LOL casually, I actually mean it. The strip that got me in issue one is the 4th installment of Joey's conversation with herself, "Am I a bitch now?" about whether her now passing and openly identifying as female--and taking hormones--has, you know. If that scares you, know that this isn't an attack on assertive womanhood. Check out the first installment, and you'll understand:

- a tool for future work
She was most interested in the last interpretation, and discussed it mostly through the lens of the GLBT Historical Society in San Francisco, which she directed for five years after being a regular researcher and volunteer there.
