LGBTQA Previews September 2021 Part 1

The feature image this time around is taken from a cover to Redemption by Christa Faust. Set in a post apocalyptic world, Faust’s story follows Rose Obregon on her search to find legendary gun slinger Cat Tanner for her help to overthrow a despotic madman controlling the town of Redemption. The Redemption trade is published by AWA (Artists, Writers, & Artisans).

Speaking of redemption… Jeremy Sorese’s new graphic novel The Short While is the story of two men who meet and fall in love and have their lives changed after a traumatic event. Look for it from Boom. Also from Boom is the final Lumberjanes trade collecting the last of the popular series. Damian Alexander’s Other Boys recounts the story of a junior high school coming to terms with his sexuality and having his first crush on a boy while dealing with taunts and bullies. A new volume of Boys Run The Riot from Kodansha continues the story of trans masc teen Ryo. Continuing the theme of teens, Call Me Nathan is about a teen dealing with gender dysmorphia and starting their transition. Look for it from Selfmade Hero. If you’re looking for queer horror then check out Hollow Heart which is collected by Vault.

Of course there’s a lot more to check out!

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.
