Another Look. A Bunch of Stuff to See Things Differently Vol. 2
Original title: Un autre regard. Trucs en vrac pour voir les choses autrement t. 2
THE 2nd COMIC BOOK FROM THE BLOGGER EMMACLIT, BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND
There’s always a moment during a conversation between women when one refers to Emma’s comic strip along the lines of, “That’s exactly what happened to me.”
After the runaway bestselling success of Another Look vol. 1, a booksellers’ favourite, amateur comedienne, Emma, is making headline news once again with the online publication of her follow-up volume, Mental Overload. She dissects that invisible load which weighs heavily on women who are obliged to do household chores and figure out how best to delegate. Emma’s comic strip has been “liked” 76,000 times on Facebook, shared 215,000 times, and attracted comments from 21,000 internet users. Mind-blowing figures! An article about her on the site www.express.fr has attracted 1, 800,000 views – a record since the site was created.
“I was a bit overwhelmed by the success of this comic strip, as it was totally unexpected. I had trouble answering everyone, though I usually try to, best I can,” says Emma. “I’m delighted that the story has gone beyond just a feminist readership and is now reaching women who are less aware. It gives me hope for the future. »
For over a year now, this amateur comedienne has posted her reflections on social and feminist issues by means of simple line drawings on her blog “Emma Clit”, as well as on Facebook, where she has over 220,000 subscribers. The resulting book, Another Look, was published by Editions Massot in May.
In this follow-up comic book, there are unpublished feminist stories reminiscent of Sweden’s Liv Strömquist’s comic strips, notably on the issue of domestic violence.
“The linking narrative thread of all these stories is that they do not happen because of bad luck, but because of a society that systematically abuses specific population groups.”
Over 28,000 copies sold on vol. 2. Over 85,000 copies sold in the series.
