A piercing psychological exploration of the delusional mind of a sexual predator.

Riffing on the myth of Artemis and Siproites, in which a young man is turned into a woman as a punishment for the attempted rape of one of Artemis’s virgin cohorts, graphic novelist Nina Bunjevac’s retelling follows Benny, a sexually deviant man who, coming across an alluring former classmate, concocts an elaborate, disturbing rape fantasy. Inked in her lush, stippled, illustrative style, Bunjevac crafts a gripping, noirish, Nabokovian tale, by turns surreal and harrowing. Bezimena turns the male gaze inside-out and offers a radical examination of the misconceptions surrounding rape culture in an artistic and psychological tour de force
