Saw Alison Bechdel give a talk about her long-running comic Dykes to Watch Out For, and also her memoir, "Fun Home". I wasn't extremely familiar with either (though I had certainly seen a few strips of DTWOF scattered around in free weeklies various times) but it was a really cool talk. I was impressed how well narration (of what would otherwise be the captions) plus showing the caption-free panels on the projector worked.
