About Betty's Boob
About Betty’s Boob concerns a young woman named Betty waking up after her mastectomy. In addition to her surgery, she goes through a break up and losing her job. However, what seems to be the darkest time in Betty’s life may be the start of a bright new day. Above all, what could easily be a dark tale is told with humor, healing, and self-acceptance.
Aubrey, Johnny, and Dennis chat the lack of dialogue in the book. Next, they discuss the anti-Capitalism themes of the book. Finally, Aubrey examines the exploratory structure of the book. Additional topics include 80085; why the artisanal fake breast shop was done dirty; “boobdazzled”; the lack of comeuppance for the “villain”; another graphic novel by a French duo; and last, but not certainly not least, the storytelling and art of About Betty’s Boob.
