As seen online at DarComic.com, DAR! chronicles the six year long autobiographical story of Erika Moen, a lost 20-year-old lesbian artist-wannabe in college who falls in love with a boy in England and the evolution that her sexual identity undergoes before winding up marrying him as a queer 26-year-old full-time cartoonist. Along the way there are many vignettes about sex, farts, the queer community, the Brits, vibrators and figuring out sexual identity.
The second and final DAR! volume, collecting strips from 2009 of the award-winning weekly webcomic, plus printing the very first years of DAR! (2003-2005) for the first time as well as 12 brand new strips drawn exclusively for the book and extra bonus material! Introduction by Dylan Meconis.
Praise For DAR! Volume Two:

-Jill Sobule (Musician)

"Erika Moen gives a comforting high-five to the reader struggling with sexual identity: just remember, 'we're gettin' laid!' She uses her charming, elastic linework to nail truths about life's big and small complexities, including weird habits, everyday dramas, queefs, the Cock O' Doom, and her happy relationship that seriously messes with her sexual identity."
