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.

August 25, 2005.


Welcome to the twelth Gay Comics List newsletter.

I should call this the twice-yearly newsletter or something.
But well, I had nothing to write about for months, and then I write five new reviews in the last month.
As usual, those are for very varied books, including more lesbian stuff than I've ever had the pleasure to review. Yay, lesbians. So, an all-inclusive anthology edited by Jennifer Camper, her two books (which I thought out-of-print and thus hadn't reviewed yet), a new comic by the artist of Associated Student Bodies, a manga depicting lesbian love in Tokyo, another anthology by (mostly) lesbian artists, a collection of the Finnish grand master of gay art, and the welcomed return of a gay & lesbian series from the 80's.

In the news section, you'll see that Kris Dresen has drawn a number of new Max & Lily strips, Tim Fish has collected in three handy volumes his Cavalcade of Boys series, the all-female webzine Sequential Tart has done a LGBT month - as well as an interview with the creators of Sticky, the strip Gun Street Girl, which I'd reviewed some time ago, gets a new home, the 1995 mini-series Chiaroscuro, a fiction on the life of Leonardo Da Vinci, will be collected in October, and I have the pleasure of welcoming Tina Anderson for a series of slash/yaoi reviews, the most recent being here.

There are two major additions to the site: the Neil Gaiman/Bryan Talbot collaboration from the A.A.R.G.H.! volume, and a long interview of the recently-deceased erotic artist Sean. As for updates of already-reviewed series, you can read a few words about Sticky #2, Liberty from Hell #5, Dangerous #2, Circles 5 & 6 and the Leonard & Larry fourth and probably last book. Finally, there are short reviews for Justin Hall's mini-comic Only In San Francisco, as well as his True Travel Tales #4, the darkly funny adventures of Devlin Waugh: Swimming in Blood and Anubis #2.
And of course, I've added a raft of links, as well as lots of
drawings in the gallery.

I'll try to do another of these newsletters in less than six months... I hope you all had an enjoyable summer time and that we'll meet again before the next snow (which is entirely possible since it snows about once a year where I live, and usually not at the beginning of winter. Interesting, isn't it? Okay, I'll shut up now).
