Woman World by Aminder Dhaliwal
Drawn & Quarterly
Publication Date: September 11, 2018
After a birth defect wipes out the entire male population and the world is set into a post-apocalyptic environment, women are left to rebuild society. Woman World shows what this possibility could look like and does so with wit, dark humor and honesty in a collection of short comics. The reader follows one village in its rebuilding phase, with only one woman having lived through the dying off of men, and weaves current pop culture throughout the narrative. Woman World asks important questions such as: Will a population of just women be peaceful? Will they have the same romantic problems? Were all men like Paul Blart, Mall Cop? Should their new flag depict Beyonce’s thighs?
