The Bi Line: Flame Con Kids Comics from @kleffnotes

This week I delve into some young reader comics that I picked up at Flame Con. This is one of my smaller round ups with just three books, two of them are part of the same series. I am a pretty diverse reader and I was excited to see comics for young readers since Flame Con does have a more casual vibe that a family could enjoy.

Strange Waters Kickstarter Comic Review from @kleffnotes

Strange Waters is currently being Kickstarted by Arledge Comics, which is a publisher that I have showcased on The Nerdy Girl Express a number of times. They provide diverse LGBTQ+ representation in their books, including one of my favorites Alex Priest. This new anthology was previously being made by Haunted Cosmos Press, but was purchased by Arledge Press because they saw a great deal of potential and wanted to help bring this book to life. This book is made entirely by queer creators and presents 15 stories with a focus on water. Continue reading “Strange Waters Kickstarter Comic Review from @kleffnotes”

Sons of Chaos Comic Review from @kleffnotes

The lavishly illustrated over-sized graphic novel, Sons of Chaos, provides a powerful experience for readers taking them back to the shores of the Mediterranean in 1821 when a bloody revolution pushed to remove the Ottoman rulers out of power. Written by Chris Jaymes and illustrated by Ale Aragon focuses on the real life story of the Greek War of Independence. Marcos Botsaris escaped captivity, fell in love, and fiercely led Greece to revolution that shattered the Ottoman Empire and shaped Western civilization as we know it today. IDW Publishing has brought this to life in connection to the 200th anniversary of these events and allows readers to become part of the story through this book.

Dorian Gray Graphic Novel Review from @kleffnotes

The story of Dorian Gray is a classic that has been reworked and rewritten in a variety of mediums, but this adaptation does more than any other version I have experienced. This graphic novel by Darren G. Davis and Scott Davis takes the Victorian Lothario and brings his story into the modern age. It also blends in supernatural and demonic elements unlike anything I’ve seen before. Continue reading “Dorian Gray Graphic Novel Review from @kleffnotes”

The Bi Line: This Comic Has Everything! from @kleffnotes

During Pride Month I went on a hunt to find books and movies that would help me to grow my understanding of different people within the LGBTQ+ community. Now I will admit I was trying to save a bit of money so I stuck to streaming services and library related apps. In my quest for knowledge I watched all of the series Gaycation, the documentary Growing Up Coy, and a few other assorted shows and movies that were recommended in various Pride watch lists. While I was watching I also did a bit of a deep dive into comics and books on the Hoopla app, this app shares digital books you can read through an account connected to your library card and many libraries use this program. During this hunt I found Gender Queer, a touching memoir that I mentioned on Twitter immediately after I finished it, and I also found the comic I want to focus on today, Ask Me About Polyamory.
