Crumb," and the new printing of this highly popular book will tell you exactly why. "My Most Secret Desire" collects Doucet's dream stories, considered by many to be her best and most innovative work to date, The dreams transcribed here range from the hilarious to the downright bizarre: from sex in space to several outrageous takes on the subject of "If I Was A Man"! If anyone of us remembers our dreams the way Julie does, we probably try to forget them soon afterwards! This sharply-designed book includes over twenty pages of new material that has not appeared in her comic series, with a stunning four -- page color section painted in Doucet's breathtaking gouache colors. Julie Doucet is best known as author of Dirty Plotte, the comic book she's worked on for the past eight years, fit: st as a self -- published mini -- comic and later as a regular full -- size series. Her initial foray into the manly world of comics earned Doucet a Harvey Award in 1991 for Best New Talent.Read Less
