Becoming Unbecoming: A Comics Beat Best Comic of the Decade
Becoming Unbecoming, originally published in North America in 2016, is a powerful denunciation of sexual violence against women, as seen through the eyes of a twelve-year-old girl named Una. It was named the best memoir of the year by O Magazine.
In its citation, The Comics Beat writes: "Utilizing a variety of styles and page layouts, Una criticizes the pop cultural obsession with violence against women, and with men who commit that violence; she provides just enough of her own experiences to illuminate just how difficult it is to ever really “get over” trauma; and she combines her personal narrative with statistics about rape and violent crime to not only present the numbers, but to make those numbers stick. Becoming Unbecoming is a genuine triumph."
