This graphic novel takes place in a future world in which men have gone extinct and only women are left. It follows several characters as they govern communities, struggle with identity and search for love, learn about the past, face questions of the loss of the human race, and more. Despite these weighty subjects, the novel is definitely light-hearted and funny, with jokes referencing current pop culture trends and age-old stumblings through life. The narrative thread, however, is very weak. The story is presented in a series of vignettes, more like a collection of web comics than a novel. If plot development is important to you, this is not the graphic novel for you. I found that this did not take away from my enjoyment of the funny moments and introspection on the more serious subjects discussed by the characters. I enjoy the web comic and look forward to see what comes next from this artist.

I am new to Aminder Dhaliwal although I have since found out this is also a popular web comic. This compilation was clever, sometimes very funny, other times poignant and thoughtful. I thought it was fun. It's not the art work I tend to prefer but that didn't seem to matter to me for this one.

Woman World is trapped between its webcomic origins and its publication as a graphic novel. It has some amazing gags (like any webcomic worth its salt) but the narrative thread is weak and thus the book operates in a bit of a gray area. A literary No-Man's...No-Woman's-Land, if you will. I am, however, very excited to see what Aminder Dhailwal does next.
