For those of us who like to wait for the last issue of an indie comic to get in on the crowdfunding action, that time is here! (I already backed this once before, but still.) I Am Hexed, a queer comic with so many witches, launches its fourth and final Kickstarter on February 16th!
It's been a while since we did one of these, but here are four I just backed that you might be interested in, too. Yes, I have a problem. No, I don't want to fix it.
I Am Hexed is a fantasy comic that takes current political issues and tranposes them onto a group of marginalized individuals: witches. The main character is a dapper queer woman who has a bit of a mystery to solve and, of course, a bunch of hell to raise. I adored this first issue (which I received from the creator for review) and immediately backed the Kickstarter for Issue #2.
Guest Post: On the Evolving Need for Queer Comics, Romance, and Adventure
Hello there, my lovely Love in Panels reader! My name is Zora Gilbert, and I would like to preach to your wonderful choir. I’m one of the editors of Dates! An Anthology of Queer Historical Fiction (Volume 3 now on Kickstarter!), which means I’ve been living and breathing queer comics in various forms for the time it takes to self-publish three volumes of an anthology while being a young adult with a day job, which it turns out is about four years (and, of course, for some time before that, but that’s harder to count).
Quick! Back these projects for all the romancey queer goodness you need in your life! Okay, it's optional... but one of them ends tonight, so get it while you can.
Remember when we talked about Circadia? The fantasy romance comic series about a ballerina and a nonbinary assassin? It's back!
Nicola R. White digitally stopped by to answer some questions I had about her comic, Wild Rose, which is currently funding Issue 2 (out of 6) on Kickstarter!
Remember our interview with Gina Biggs? The interview in which she mentions an upcoming anthology of sexy sporty comics? It's here!
Circadia is back! We reviewed the first issue a few weeks ago and, at that time, there wasn't an easy way to get your hands on a copy. But now... you can! Issue #2 is crowdfunding on Kickstarter starting today and there's a Catch-Up tier for anyone who hasn't already started the series. In that first review, we whined a little about the extended production schedule for Circadia, with months between issues. We're pleased to tell you that it's all happening much faster now!
Happy May Day! Here's a fresh batch of comics up on Kickstarter.
