Drawn & Quarterly has acquired the world rights to Aminder Dhaliwal’s Woman World.  The debut graphic novel expands upon Dhaliwal’s popular Instagram comic of the same name.  The volume will be out in August.

Woman World is an Ignatz Award-nominated biweekly series that imagines a world run entirely by women after a birth defect wipes out the entire population of men.  Men are a distant memory in the Instagram series, which tackles feminist concerns (and the survival of humanity) in a well-paced comedic style.  Woman World launched in March 2017 and has 120,000 readers.  It averages 25,000 likes per post.

Dhaliwal is a Director at Disney Animation, and she previously worked as Storyboard Director for both Cartoon Network and Nickelodeon’s Sanjay and Craig.

The release is in addition to a broad-ranging 2018 catalog from the publisher (see "BD by Ruillier, Castree in D&Q's Spring List" and "D&Q Collects Independent Comics Masters in 2018").
