Things Go Bump In The Night In ‘My Monster Boyfriend’ [Fantasy Week]

mymonsterboyfriend-cover-feat

It's Fantasy Week here at Comics Alliance, and many of my fellow CA contributors are writing about their favorite monsters. And I can respect that, but why would I choose one monster when I could highlight a book with lots of monsters instead? Especially when these monsters are all really, really sexy.

Published by Iron Circus Comics and edited by C. Spike Trotman, Smut Peddler Presents: My Monster Boyfriend has ten short comics about monsters and the humans who love them. Its highly successful Kickstarter earlier this year (paired with the femdom erotica comic Yes, Roya) raised over $160,000. There is clearly a market for comics full of sexy monster boys, is what I'm saying.

Joamette Gil is a queer Afro-Cuban cartoonist who, earlier this year, put out the call to other women of color to see if anyone was interested in making comics about queer witches. It turns out that quite a few were, and that was the origin of Power & Magic: The Queer Witch Comics Anthology.

The black and white book features 15 original stories about witchcraft and the queer women of color who practice it, stretching across genres and featuring a wide variety of art styles. Now Gil has launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund publication and pay the artists.

Warren Ellis And Colleen Doran Announce New Webcomic ‘Finality’ For 2017

Finality, Warren Ellis and Colleen Doran

Warren Ellis and Colleen Doran's Orbiter might be one of the most underrated comics of either of those creators' considerable careers. Released as an original graphic novel in 2003, it told the story of a space shuttle that returned to Earth after being missing for ten years, and it's the kind of beautifully rendered high concept story that makes you wonder why Ellis and Doran don't work together more often. Now, though, 13 years later, they're reuniting for a new project: Finality.
