“This is honestly one of the best comics about identity and finding community and yourself that I’ve ever read.”
Renegade city fae, post-apocalyptic bicycle gangs, reclusive monster boyfriends, and mysterious sewer-dwelling mermaids!
“After that summer, all I wanted was reassurance — not from other people necessarily, but from myself. I would have loved to talk to my adult self and ask her a million questions: Am I ok? Do I make it out of my teens alive? Who do I turn out to be, in the end?”
Your chance to support a project that will go down in comics history one day as one of the finest comics of any type of its age!

“I’m a queer brown weirdo and I love every short inch of myself. I’m bringing all that round, brown, goodness to this story. All the things that make me laugh and make me feel strong, they’re going to be in America’s world.”
Even when the realities of being a trans woman get her down, she’s able to look at the positive side of life and hope things will one day be better.
Beautiful art, even more beautiful colors, perfect character and world design, and epic RPG-style storytelling.
Kim Reaper is a queer bright spot in this demoralizing world. It features cute art, cuter characters, funny jokes and a compelling story about death, college and romance.
Obviously real-life immigrants and refugees are way more important than fictional ones ever will be, but here are some characters you can read about if you want to see stories about immigrants and refugees who are kicking bad guys’ butts.
