LGBTQA Previews January 2022 Part 1

Often the stories that are more exciting — to me at least — are the ones coming from small press and indy publishers. That’s true again this month. Chef’s Kiss is a graphic novel by Jarrett Melendez, Danica Brine, and Hank Jones. It’s the story of English grad Ben Cook’s life takes an unexpected romantic turn after a frustrating job search. Published by Oni. This book may be for you if you enjoyed Bloom by Kevin Panetta and Savanna Ganucheau or Fumi Yoshinaga’s What Did You Eat Yesterday manga. Coming from Graphix is The Kao’s Magical Boy tells the story of Max, “[an] average trans man trying to get through high school as himself” who learns an ages old family secret. Molly Muldoon and William Hernandez offer up A Quick & Easy Guide To Asexuality, also from Oni. And if you liked This One Summer by the Mariko cousins then you might like Sarah Winifred Searle’s Greatest Thing from First Second. But these aren’t the only interesting comics and graphic novels! That’s why there’s a list!
