Justin Hall: I've been obsessed with comics ever since I was a kid; some of my earliest memories were learning to read with Fantastic Four and Tintin comics. Where did the idea of compiling a collection of queer comics come from? I curated a show called "No Straight Lines: Queer Culture and the Comics" at the San Francisco Cartoon Art Museum back in 2006. We wanted to do a catalogue from the show then, but couldn't find the funding.

  • Granijurus
The art, the writinng and the fun! From laughing out loud, to the irony of real life, this is truely a wonderful slice of gay life. It is a must read for all cartoonists and artests. But more that that, it is a fun romp for everybody! hightly reccomended. Would really like to see some of the older stuff from the 40's,50's and 60's [email protected]
  • Ubrise
This is a good compilation of various queer comics. Some of the art is a bit weird, and since many comics run in long series, it's hard to figure out some of the stories, but this is still a fun volume to have in a collection.
  • Vetalol
Excellence, a great and funny compendium (don't forget the pathos (well we could not (shush dear allegedly)) get this book, A+++.
  • ChallengeMine
This is a valuable contribution to the history of the gay community in the US and Europe. Not much of an introduction.
  • Nawenadet
When I first saw this collection I was ecstatic because I love comics and am a lesbian so I have a general interest in things that are LGBTQ. I ordered this collection instantly and couldn't wait to read it. I really enjoyed the passage of time and subjects that occurs throughout the collection. The subjects written about vary and all have something unique about them.

The main issue I had was that there is a large majority of comics that feature gay men and there are only a handful of lesbians or trans characters. I believe that this collection is more suited for gay men than any other member of the community and this disappoints me since it is marketed as a queer collection.
  • Nuadador
This is a unique piece of work and an essential guide for those who are interested in queer studies within the comics genre!
