Fresh off our success with the Kickstarter campaign for Swan Song, I’d like to take a minute to pay it forward and spread the word on a handful of other excellent-looking comics that our colleagues in the comics small press world are fundraising for right now. Check them out, and consider backing them if they look like your kind of thing! Do it soon, though, because time is running out on a couple of these.
Niki Smith’s Crossplay is a love letter to a fandom. The erotic graphic novel for every otaku who’s ever had a convention weekend hookup… or just wish they had.
Home from college for the summer, a group of friends– including cosplay photographer Priya, con pal Emi, lifelong and currently-transitioning friend Lee, crossplayer Sierra, her very supportive boyfriend Tommy, and the mysteriously distracted Jillian– have reunited at their favorite con. What begins as two days of simple fun turns into earth-shaking milestones of sexual discovery, confessed crushes, and gender exploration. Over the course of a single weekend, the group uses what they love to figure out who they are, what they want, and what will make them happy.
Habibi is a new zine-style anthology featuring prose stories and comics weaving together stories of love told by Muslim women. Each piece is a unique perspective on what love can mean to someone, whether it’s romantic, familial, or even love of self.
Habibi is edited by Hadeel al-Massari (organizer, GeekGirlCon) and Nyala Ali (journalist, Women Write About Comics), and published by Bedside Press (The Secret Loves of Geek Girls).
