On the first day of February, comic creators from all over the place try to draw one comic for every hour they’re awake. Here are some from the artists I’ve featured in this column.
Noelle Stevenson, the co-writer of the upcoming series “Lumberjanes,” is the creator of the fun, creative and brilliantly written and drawn webcomic “Nimona” about a super villain and his shapeshifting teen girl sidekick with awesome hair.
Exploring 40 different artist’s feelings and experiences about their bodies and gender, the zine “Every/Body” has stories and comics ranging from the touching and tragic, to the inspiring and uplifting.
“Strong Female Protagonist” is a wonderful superhero comic that places more importance on the humanity of it’s characters than their super-humanity. It tells the story of Alison Green (formerly Mega-Girl) as she tries to negotiate post-superhero life.
Elisha Lim’s zine “Favourite Dating Tales” features not only illustrations, comics and pictures that convey just about every part of the dating experience, but also has some of the most beautiful looking art I’ve ever seen.
In it’s third volume, all-lady comic collection “The Strumpet” brings us tales from 22 different women all centered around the idea of taste- whatever that means to the artist.
Annie Mok’s tremendous short comic Screentests tells gorgeous stories about coming to terms with trauma and gender and is absolutely gorgeous to look at.
If you’re looking for a beautiful comic about a butt-kicking girl, a boy looking for adventure, breathtaking new worlds, and bizarre creatures, you’ll definitely want to check out Demon Street.
If you’re anything like me, you love to read comics about queer couples, weird cats and even weirder nature. ChaosLife covers all those bases and I chatted with the creators.
Sfé Monster’s webcomic Kyle & Atticus tells the story of a young genderqueer kid making their way through school and life. Also they have a robot friend that speaks in Braille.
Her fairy tale and horror comics are some of the most creative, innovative and just flat out amazing comics I’ve seen online in a long time.
O Human Star is a lovely webcomic full of queer characters that will make you like robots so much that you might need a Terminator marathon just to feel normal again.
Melanie Gillman’s webcomic As the Crow Flies tells the story of a young, queer girl of color trying to find her place at a Christian camp filled with people she can’t relate to.
Hazel Newlevant does so much great work that it would be a shame to look at just one of her comics and ignore the rest. From her weekly concert reviews and cute and funny diary comics to her award-winning stories about queer ladies trying to find happiness in music you’re sure to find something you’ll love.
This shoujo-influenced webcomic tells the story of two best friends who are freshmen students at Unity University, a college where monsters and humans can live and learn alongside each other.
SuperMutant Magic Academy is weird. It’s not just weird, it’s often times so completely bonkers, but definitely in the best way possible. And despite (or perhaps because of) that absurdity, it’s also completely relatable.
While DC and Marvel are struggling to keep just a handful of queer superheroes in the spotlight, Supercakes puts two queer ladies front and center.
Two queer comic professionals are starting a brand-spanking new anthology of Science Fiction and Fantasy comics featuring queer characters and stories. And the best part is, they’re looking for contributions from people like you!
For a long, long time I’ve loved princess movies, but I always wished there were more princesses like me. Well, with Princess Princess, I’ve finally found some.
