No Straight Lines on PBS

No Straight Lines queer comics documentary promotional graphic

Perhaps you would like to watch a documentary about queer comics? Well, you can now stream No Straight Lines on PBS!

I was interviewed for this film back in 2017 while I was at the Queers & Comics Conference organized by Jennifer Camper and Justin Hall, so yeah, you’ll see me and my work in there!

The film, directed by Vivian Kleiman, shares the same name as the anthology Justin published through Fantagraphics back in 2012, in which I also have some work. The book and the film focus on the last 50-ish years of queer comics history, how we get from utterly marginalized underground indie comics to Alison Bechdel’s bestseller-turned-hit-musical Fun Home.

The film will be available for streaming for the next three months on PBS, so head over and watch at your leisure: 



QAT Person #3 now available for pre-order

QAT Person #3 now available for pre-order published on
QAT Person number 3 queer asexual transgender autobio comics

Back in the Beforetimes, I was planning to debut the newest issue of my autobio minicomic series at the Toronto Comic Arts Festival in May.

TCAF is canceled, of course, but I decided to go ahead and put the comic together anyway. I’ve arbitrarily set a release date of May 1, and have set up a preorder listing for the book, should you desire such a thing.

QAT Person #3 collects the latest batch of my autobio comics on queer, asexual, and trans identity.

“Ace Pilot” posits an asexual headcanon for Luke Skywalker. “Two’s Cabin” recounts the author’s adventure at a trans guy bar in Tokyo. “Banned Books” takes a look at censorship of queer media (and Alison Bechdel’s FUN HOME in particular). “Trans Potty” offers a humorous take on bathroom troubles for trans guys.

New comic up on The Nib – Banned Books; CXC this weekend

New comic up on The Nib – Banned Books; CXC this weekend published on No Comments on New comic up on The Nib – Banned Books; CXC this weekend

The Nib Banned Books Dylan Edwards Alison Bechdel Fun Home

I have a new comic up on The Nib, as part of their Banned Books feature. Be sure to check out all six comics, with a bunch of different artists discussing their fave banned books!

As you can see, I elected to talk about Alison Bechdel’s Fun Home. When I was working on Transposes, I studied FH closely for tips on how to put together a compelling non-fiction narrative.

Before that, Dykes to Watch Out For was a big influence on my own early attempts at an ensemble cast comic, namely Politically InQueerect. While PiQue eventually went more in a traditional comic format direction, you can see in the early strips where I basically just lifted the D2WO4 format.

Anyway, thanks to Alison for being a big inspiration, and to The Nib for giving me a platform to talk a little bit about her awesomeness.

ALSO: I will be at Cartoon Crossroads Columbus this weekend, Sept. 30 – Oct. 1. I am not actually sure what my table assignment is? But I will definitely be there and you should find me and buy a bunch of comics. Yep.
