LGBTQ Previews January 2020 Part 1

The holidays are nearly here!   The impeachment hearings are playing out, giving House Republicans the opportunity to play the fool while the Oval Office occupant gaslights by Twitter.  Have you practiced your “OK, tr^mper” to use on your crazy relatives at Thanksgiving? Hopefully you won’t have to use it! If only it were possible to fast forward to January 2nd!

Several items stand out this time around. There’s Gender – A Graphic Guide from Icon Books; Ellen Stagg’s Dirty Girls Having Fun photography book listed under Goliath. Sure, it isn’t a graphic novel, but you know, it seems of interest. Steve Horton and Michael Allred’s David Bowie bio extravaganza looks fantastic!

You’ll find BOOM, DE, Archie, Black Mask, Vault, and other small and indy press publisher here. The strange code with letters and numbers after each item are Diamond order codes for easy ordering with your comic shop! Part two with comics from Dark, Horse, DC, Image, IDW, and Marvel is here.

The “fine print”! People’s names listed in bold are either LGBT+ or supportive. Credit where credit is due – Andy Mangels because this was his idea and to Mike McDermott and Steven Leitman for their suggestions and input about several series that have been added to the list! As much as we try, sometimes a book, series, or creator is overlooked. Send us a message if that’s the case or to let us know about your work that doesn’t appear in Previews.

Supporting your local comic shop and book store is important! But if you shop on Amazon, please consider using our Amazon affiliate link to order any of trades or graphic novels below with links or any thing from Amazon that strikes your fancy.  Alternatively, you can highlight the title, open Amazon in a new window, and search for it to benefit your preferred group or organization or none at all if you like.

BOWIE STARDUST RAYGUNS & MOONAGE DAYDREAMS $39.99 Pag 302
Steve Horton and Michael Allred
Inspired by the one and only superhero, extraterrestrial, and rock and roll deity in history, Bowie: Stardust, Rayguns, & Moonage Daydreams is the original graphic memoir of the great Ziggy Stardust! In life, David Bowie was one of the most magnetic icons of modern pop culture, seducing generations of fans with both his music and his counterculture persona. In death, the cult of Bowie has only intensified. As a musician alone, Bowie’s legacy is remarkable, but his place in the popular imagination is due to so much more than his music. As a visual performer, he defied classification with his psychedelic aesthetics, his larger-than-life image, and his way of hovering on the border of the surreal. Bowie: Stardust, Rayguns, & Moonage Daydreams chronicles the rise of Bowie’s career from obscurity to fame; and paralleled by the rise and fall of his alter ego as well as the rise and fall of Ziggy Stardust. As the Spiders from Mars slowly implode, Bowie wrestles with his Ziggy persona. The outcome of this internal conflict will change not only David Bowie, but also, the world.
