to the twentieth Gay Comics List newsletter.
contribution to the spirit of the holidays: lots of gay-themed comics
for your to read about.
As usual, the new books are very varied: Tim Fish offers his new graphic
novel (a kind-of sequel to hisCavalcade of Boys), Robert Kirby
and David Kelly have edited another volume of their excellent Boy Trouble
anthology (this time with only new content), Steve MacIsaac starts a new
long-form story in his Shirtlifter comic, Maurice Vellekoop has
a new collection of erotic art, Jörg Meyer-Bothling's Micki
is back with a second volume of highly-sexed hijinks, Class Comics offers
two more porn comics with great art, and new artists emerge, with Matt
Runkle and Rick Worley's autobio comics. We've also got new issues of
Frater Mine, So Super Duper and Incubus. A very unexpected
and gay-inclusive project is The Virgin Project, where people talk
about their first time, and another surprise is the bitter-sweet gay story
from the latest Drawn & Quarterly Showcase by a Swedish artist.
And the prize for the most unusual idea goes to Massimo Fenati's Gus
& Waldo series, where two gay penguins fall in love. No, really.
I must say the biggest news for me has been the publication of an art
book dedicated to J.C. Leyendecker, which I'd announced in the previous
newsletter. It was worth the wait.
added an email-based subscription service which you can use to receive
a message every time I add something on the site. See here.
This way, you won't have to wait six months to hear from me. If enough
people use it, I might discontinue this newsletter.
I'll finish this by wishing all of you Happy Holidays. I'll see you next
