Melody is not a sex comic, and it's not an explicitly political one: it's a comic about work.
Melody is not a sex comic, and it's not an explicitly political one: it's a comic about work. Yes, the fact that the specific job is stripping matters - capturing the texture of the job, the specific hopes, hassles and headaches, is the point of any comic about work.
The Orgies of Abitibi: Melody Book One. Sylvie Rancourt. This is the story of a young, libertine lady and her short life as a stripper. She is a very free-spirited lass, and while her boyfriend continues to disappoint, she constantly is finding ways to earn them food or money. She finally settles on stripping, and her tales are enjoyable. I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It is the continuation of the Melody comic book series from the mid-80s. Granted this series, the artwork is pretty elementary, and while adult in nature, you won't find it very titillating. You will however enjoy the further adventure of Melody and Nick

Sylvie Rancourt is a cartoonist and painter who was born in northern Quebec and moved to Montreal in the early 1980s. With limited options for work, she began performing as a nude dancer and recounting her experiences in comics form, self-publishing a series called Melody. In the 1990s, Rancourt collaborated with Jacques Boivin who translated and illustrated her stories. The English Melody became an instant cult classic, selling over 200,000 copies. A compilation of early Melody comics was recently published in France and nominated for a prize at the 2014 Angouleme Comics Festival

Drugs, manipulation, stolen merchandise, orgies and arrests follow, but the story .
Drugs, manipulation, stolen merchandise, orgies and arrests follow, but the story never loses its essential good-natured, upbeat attitude. Melody is not a cautionary tale, despite its subject matter, but it’s not a celebration, either. Rancourt’s illustrative approach doesn’t evolve much throughout her avatar’s journey, although her panels do include more detail by the end of the last issue.
These experiences formed the backbone of the first Canadian autobiographical comic book, 'Melody', which Rancourt wrote, drew, and distributed, starting in 1985. Later, Rancourt collaborated with artist Jacques Boivin, who translated and drew a new series of 'Melody' comics for the American market - the comics were an instant cult classic. Rancourt passes the reader a gift: the ability to experience and see a venal adult life through the forgiving, blameless and easily-wounded eyes of a child.

The Rancourt drawn-and-written comics have never before seen English publication. These stories are compelling without ever being voyeuristic or self-pitying, and her drawings are formally innovative while maintaining a refreshingly frank and engaging clarity.
