Comics Alliance Gift Guide: Gays in Space Edition

4318301-kaptara1-cover

Friedrich Nietzsche once had a famous quote about gazing into the abyss and the abyss gazing unto you in return. I don't know Nietzsche, but I can only assume he actually meant that if you gaze into the abyss (space), the gays will gaze back at you — because space is filled with gays and they don't appreciate your rude staring.

If you know someone who is all about gays in space (cue the Saturday Night Live theme song, though maybe not the rest of the skit) or cosmic queer folk, from #Stormpilot to Mass Effect, consider these holiday gifts. Retrograde Earthen ideas of love and gender most certainly not included.

Colleen Coover’s Erotic Comedy ‘Small Favors’ Coming In Hardcover From Limerence Press

sf_featured

Before her Eisner-winning work on Bandette, cartoonist Colleen Coover was best known for a lighthearted queer erotica comic called Small Favors. For years now, Small Favors has been discussed as a classic of comics erotica, and a rare book about sex by a women, aimed at women, about women who love women (but of course people who aren't women can enjoy it too). And for years, it's been out of print. But Limerence Press, the recently established Oni Comics imprint that focuses on erotica and sex education, is changing that.

Coming in April 2017, Small Favors will be available in a new hardback collection, which includes both volumes of the black and white comic, plus the color special.

Cookbooks, Craft, and Cannibalism: Natalie Riess Dishes on Space Battle Lunchtime [Interview]

caspacebattleheader

Whether it's to a Lisa Frank-ian medieval fantasy dimension or a dish-or-die intergalactic cooking competition, artist and writer Natalie Riess knows a thing or two about sending unwitting Earthlings to dangerous and dazzling new locales. Riess herself is the first person (Earthling or otherwise) to have a project greenlit through 2015's Oni Press open submissions program, where she landed Space Battle Lunchtime, an eight-issue miniseries about an Earthen pastry chef brought to compete for her life in not one, but two cooking competitions. Riess is also known for Snarlbear, her four-year-old comic about a monster slayer in the violent yet vibrant Rainbow Dimension.

ComicsAlliance sat down with Riess at the Massachusetts Independent Comics Expo where, minutes before the interview, she had just won the day's Iron Cartoonist competition. It turns out creating comics about cooking-themed competitions prepares you to compete in them too.

OJST V2
Erika Moen

Erika Moen's popular webcomic Oh Joy Sex Toy has been going strong since 2013, but there's still so much to be learned about sex, bodies, and of course the titular sex toys. For the sake of all of our continuing educations, Oh Joy Sex Toy, Vol. 3 is out in print next week, from Oni Comics' Limerence Press imprint.

Co-written by Moen's husband Matthew Nolan, this 312-page book discusses sex from all angles, covering swinging, foreskins, queer porn production and more, in addition to the sex toy reviews that give the comic its name. In fact, this 13-page preview has a lot to teach you about UTIs, HPV, and vaginismus. And they really display how much fun Moen and Nolan can make even the most uncomfortable of topics.
