June 19, 2010: I've launched a new version of this website as a Wordpress blog. This version won't be updated anymore.
If you don't see the images of a review, it means that I've transferred it to the new site.

Hello, everybody.

February 13, 2005.


Welcome to the eleventh Gay Comics List newsletter.

Sorry for the very late newsletter. I just couldn't find the time to do it.
The good thing is that you have six new reviews, including two erotic comics, a 256-page graphic novel, love among the iron-pumpers, and a web strip that finally gets a collection.

The big upcoming gay comics event should be the publication of Juicy Mother, a glbt collection of short stories by various artists. I'll definitely write more about it when I've read it.

In the news, we have new prints by the hugely talented Maurice Vellekoop, the long-awaited return of Ivan Velez's Tales of the Closet, the death of gay erotic artist Sean and an exhibition of gay artists which includes Chelsea Boys co-creators Glen Hanson.
I've written updates for three series, with Liberty from Hell #4, Cavalcade of Boys #9 and Love #3, as well as a shortish review of the gay-inclusive
Locas (Jaime Hernandez's long-running series), an article about French gay BD (with two more to follow as soon as I can), something about the rather queer collection Clive Barker's Tapping the Vein, and a few lines about the excellent Out/Lines and Lust Unearthed (two books showing pre-Stonewall gay art). I also wanted to point out that I've written another story for the Young Bottoms in Love anthology.
That's all from me this time.

Happy Valentine's day for those of you who celebrate it.
Remember that after all, it's only the Christian version of a very old Roman celebration... and that I think we don't have to give in to the general mushiness to show our partners-boy/girlfriend-whatever-you- call-that- important-person our love. Yeah, I'm a hopeless romantic.
