No Straight Lines on PBS

No Straight Lines on PBS published on
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: https://www.pbs.org/independentlens/documentaries/no-straight-lines/

OUT FRONT Magazine – July 2022 issue: Kinky Geeks, plus Izzy Hands Leather Pride Flag Sticker

OUT FRONT Magazine – July 2022 issue: Kinky Geeks, plus Izzy Hands Leather Pride Flag Sticker published on
Yeah, so, apparently I completely forgot to make a post here to announce my comic in the July issue of OUT FRONT Magazine. Oops. But it works out okay, as I can now make a themed post about a couple of different projects.

ANYHOW, my July comic for OFM focused on Kinky Queers in Geeky Media, for the Kinky Geeks issue. As you can see from the header image, Laszlo Cravensworth from What We Do in the Shadows makes an appearance. You can find the comic on page 6 of the digital issue.

Speaking of kinky queers in geeky media, I made my first ever piece of fan merch, a leather/BDSM pride flag with an Izzy Hands theme:

I had done the heart hands illustration for an anthology zine I’m in (about which I shall reveal more at a later date), and decided to reuse it for a flag design. I’ve had this idea kicking around in my head for awhile, the zine just gave me an excuse to bring it into the world.

These stickers are $4 each, free shipping in the U.S., $2 shipping to the rest of the world. I have them for sale in my Ko-Fi shop, so go snag one if you are of a mind to do so.

I will (hopefully) remember to make a post about my August OFM comic before the month ends, but I haven’t picked up my physical copy yet, so it’ll wait until I manage to do that.

Cheers,

Dylan

OUT FRONT Magazine – February 2022 issue, plus e-commerce stuff

OUT FRONT Magazine – February 2022 issue, plus e-commerce stuff published on

The latest OUT FRONT Magazine is on the stands now (if you’re in the Denver area, that is), and I have a new comic in there! This seemed like a good issue to do a comic looking at just a few of the different manifestations that asexuality can take.

You can read the magazine online via their website (I’m on page 6).

I also made a public Patreon post wherein I go into some detail about the coloring choices for this comic.

E-commerce? What?

If you are not hooked into cartoonist Twitter, there’s been a big, BIG explosion this morning regarding Gumroad as a platform for selling indie comics. I’m not sure I want to get into the whole story here, but suffice it to say, Gumroad decided to take what could have been a very minor problem and dealt with it in a professional manner. Instead, they apparently, for reasons that are absolutely opaque to me, decided they’d rather bully and abuse a huge swath of creators in public, on Twitter, and then delete a bunch of those abusive tweets.

I have not quite picked my jaw up off the floor from seeing how badly they handled this whole thing. But it made me not trust them as a company going forward. My problem now is that I have to figure out a new platform for selling my self-published work. Since all of this blew up just this morning, I haven’t had a chance to figure out yet what my new thing is going to be. It may take me some days to sort it out (this is the kind of thing I dread having to deal with even under normal circumstances, nevermind the current howling mess).

I am also currently sidelined to some extent. My left shoulder, a.k.a. my drawing shoulder, seized up the other day, and I have not been able to un-seize it, no matter how much I rest or stretch or worry it with trigger point massagers. So I’m going back to physical therapy, but that’s a bit over a week away. As such, my time on the computer and at the drafting table is limited for awhile yet.

ANYWAY, once I sort out my new biz for selling comics online, I will post about it here.

Cheers,

Dylan
