Category: Comics & Zines
At first a fan of the webcomic, I watched as Oseman excused herself of appropriation while failing to grow her story beyond fujoshi tropes. Now Heartstoppers has won Best Graphic Novel 2020, and I could not be more disappointed.
Queering The Air: Queer Zine Culture
An amazing catch-up with Frank Candiloro and Emily_N3v3r on 3CR’s ‘Queering the Air’.
Top Eight: Queer Comics
Thought I’d use my knowledge and thirst to pull together a list of queer comics I *loved* in 2019.

I didn’t want 2019 to end without sharing some…

Here and Queer (Aug 24-31)
