Her graphic novels, including 1991’s autobiographical My New York Diary, continue to attract a generation of new fans, although she hasn’t produced any new comics work since the 2007 graphic memoir 365 Days. “I suppose I could be drawing comics about having my period for the rest of my life and people would love it, but that’s just not interesting at all,” she says.
