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.

June 7, 2008.


Welcome to the eighteenth Gay Comics List newsletter.

The winter is gone, he summer is coming, and I've been too lazy to write another newsletter since last November.
So, among the new reviews this time, I particularly recommend Skim, by Mariko and Jillian Tamaki, one of the best graphic novels I've read in some time. There's also a lot of fun and light reading (Side by Side, Queerville, Boy Meets Hero, Get Her! and Micki), the second issue of a great indy anthology (Juicy Mother), and the first issue of a supernatural thriller (The Mark of Aeacus) which shows that Class Comics can publish something else than comics with enormous cocks.
I also heartily recommend Hard Boys, an excellent retrospective of erotic artist Harry Bush.

Here's what's new on the site.
