Summary
The year is 1989 and twenty-three-year-old Julie Doucet is flying to France, where she plans to meet up with a friend. She only knows him through their mail correspondence, a common enough reality of the zine era, when comics were mailed from cartoonist to reader and close relationships were formed. Based on diary entries from what turns into a whirlwind romance, the passion and high emotions of youth seep through the pages. "Time Zone J" is Doucet's return to comics after famously quitting in the nineties at the peak of her cartooning career -- a rejection of an industry that, at the time, make little room for women. Here, Doucet draws compulsively, creating an alternate universe that foregrounds women. "Time Zone J" overflows with images pulled from past and present, faces and people who have imspired Doucet across more than three decades of creative work. -- cover flap
