Homoti: The Weird and Wonderful Story of The Turkish Gay E.T. Remake

In stock
Product Details

This comic is about an unofficial, queer, Turkish remake of E.T. (Steven Spielberg, 1982) and provides a critique of militaristic, heteronormative nationalism in the post-Coup Turkey of the 1980s, the context in which Homoti (Mujdat Gezen, 1987) was produced, through theoretical frameworks of queer phenomenology and monster theory. This 16- page comic zine brings together several academic and personal interests and fascinations of mine: cultural and political history of Turkey, B movies, remakes, gender theory, political activism, and autobiographical/underground comix tropes, in an attempt to develop a personal style in comics-based research.
