With her startling humor, it's no surprise that Aminder Dhaliwal's web comic Woman World has a devoted audience of more than 120,000 readers, updated biweekly with each installment earning an average of 25,000 likes. Now, readers everywhere will delight in the print edition as Dhaliwal seamlessly incorporates feminist philosophical concerns into a series of perfectly-paced strips that skewer perceived notions of femininity and contemporary cultural icons. D+Q's edition of Woman World will include new and previously unpublished material. 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, Blockbusters 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.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Woman World is an overdue, welcome and slyly hilarious glimpse into the complex, heartfelt, and existential bonds between women of all stripes and makes. Each scene reminded me of the wild paradox of wanting to do good in the world, but also being undeniably human. I couldn't get enough."--Aparna Nancherla

"Turns out a world without men is very funny."--Tig Notaro

"Women's creativity, sexuality, and fearlessness are unleashed by Dhaliwal's end of days. These unlikely heroines are unafraid to meet Armageddon with irreverence as they laugh, love, and raucously live on in this unusual and charming farce."--Publishers Weekly

"Dhaliwal's elegantly lined humor feels perfectly pitched for the contemporary moment in bite-sized, social-media-friendly humor without ever feeling dumbed-down or cutesy."--Vulture
