Transmyscira: VAMPIRONICA Is One Bite Forward, Two Steps Back

Archie Comics’ grand foray into the direct market to produce hip comics that break from their reputation as impulse buys at grocery store checkouts has a problem. They don’t really hire women creators very much, which is an odd problem to have for a company whose characters are the first thing that jump to most


PUERTO RICO STRONG Edited by Marco Lopez, Desiree Rodriguez, Hazel Newlevant, Derek Ruiz, and Neil Schwartz Published by Lion Forge Release date: March 14, 2018 Puerto Rico Strong is an immensely important book. It’s more than just a way to raise money or to call awareness to the tragedy occurring still every day in the

Queer Visibility Interview: Michelle Perez on THE PERVERT

Coming from writer Michelle Perez with art from Remy Boydell, and previously featured in Eisner nominated anthology Island, is The Pervert, an unflinching and honest account of a trans girl surviving through sex work in Seattle. Michelle was kind enough to take the time to talk with us about trans representation, and her experiences working

Queer Visibility Interview: Joe Glass and Sina Grace on THE PRIDE ADVENTURES

We’re all pretty used to seeing one queer character rolling around a comic universe. Maybe (if you’re lucky), a couple — romantic or otherwise. But what about an entire team of queer heroes? What’s that even called? That’s a Pride. With the original series in hardcover and the fifth issue of its spin-off title, The

Transmyscira: CALEXIT Moves at The Speed of Now

Yes, the arrival of this year’s Amancay Nahuelpan/Matteo Pizzolo comic is a great opportunity to dunk on the pair for only turning in an average of a single collaborative issue a year.

Transmyscira: The Second Amendment Doesn’t Apply to the Fourth Wall

I can draw a perfect replica of a Desert Eagle handgun from memory, and I’ve been able to do it since before either Snatch or The Matrix came out. The unique L-shaped slide, the weird, bulbous outline of the barrel that looks like a water balloon held by the knot, the whole thing. I know

Hang On for Queer Life: 40 More LGBTA Webcomics to Know and Love

Lesbian. Gay. Bisexual. Trans. Asexual. Nonbinary. Poly. It’s not easy to find the whole spectrum in monthly comics, but head on over to webcomics, and queer life blossoms. Last year, we looked at 40 awesome LGBTA webcomics here at Comicosity — but it’s time to up the ante. Below are 40 MORE webcomics to check

Cómix Latinx Interview: Luke Martinez on THE ASCENDANT

As a community Latinx have always had strong relationships with their elders and the people that we look up to. As we grow older, and our elders as well, that relationship changes. The people that we once respected start to become “mortal” and we have to figure out a new way to interact with them

Images that Can Be Touched: Patricio Betteo’s CINCO

Our first contact with the world is through sensation. We first experience and feel. We see, we smell, we touch, and after that, we translate the sensations into thoughts, into words that we can communicate to others and to ourselves. We first experience the world, and then we create a language to understand it. Although

Transmyscira: Sweet 2017… with Claws

Choosing precedence, legacy, and continuity as the guiding principles behind my best ofs this year left me with very little in the way of options for best series. They all point directly to All New Wolverine, which has been one of the only current monthly series over a year old that you can set your
