Join us for the launch of Aminder Dhaliwal's WOMAN WORLD.
THE HILARIOUS AND WILDLY POPULAR INSTAGRAM COMIC ABOUT A WORLD WITH NO MEN
When a birth defect wipes out the planet’s entire population of men, Woman World rises out of society’s ashes. Dhaliwal’s infectiously funny instagram comic follows the rebuilding process, tracking a group of women who have rallied together under the flag of “Beyonce’s Thighs.” Only Grandma remembers the distant past, a civilization of segway-riding mall cops, Blockbuster movie rental shops, and “That’s What She Said” jokes. For the most part, Woman World’s residents are focused on their struggles with unrequited love and anxiety, not to mention that whole “survival of humanity” thing.
Woman World is an uproarious and insightful graphic novel from a very talented and funny new voice.

Librairie Drawn and Quarterly would like to acknowledge that we are on the traditional and current home of the Kanien’kehá:ka. The Kanien’kehá:ka Nation are the custodians of the land and water on which we’re meeting. Many of us refer to Montreal as our home, but it is named Tiohtiá:ke. It has always been a gathering place for many First Nations and continues to be home to a diverse population of Indigenous peoples. We believe it’s not enough just to acknowledge the keepers of this land and that it is important to think about how each and every one of us has arrived here, in this space.
