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/

Our Flag Means Death fan art zine by Dylan Edwards

The deed is done! You can now acquire my OFMD fan art zine by way of the internet.

This zine collects most of my fan art creations related to Our Flag Means Death season 1, plus some works inspired by the 2022 OFMD panels at Emerald City Comic Con and C2E2. There are also a couple of What We Do in the Shadows cameos for extra measure.

Content notes: nothing outside the scope of what’s in the show. There’s some swearing, there’s some blood, there’s some risque ribaldry.

16-pages, full color, 5.5″ x 8.5″

Zines are $5.00 each, plus shipping.

Our Flag Means Death fan art – Izzy in drag, and digital color practice

Our Flag Means Death fan art – Izzy in drag, and digital color practice published on

For the most part, I’ve just been posting my fan art creations on social media (Instagram, Tumblr, and Twitter specifically), but this one I wanted to show here as a before/after thing, comparing my first ever effort at digital coloring with my most recent. So here’s the just-completed Izzy in Drag piece, line art done in natural media, coloring done in Photoshop:

And now, for comparison, my very first attempt at a digitally-colored comic (for this one, the line art was also digital, drawn with a tablet that is functionally little more than a glorified track pad, and is the same tablet I used in coloring the Izzy piece):
Taxonomically Unbound puns about math and food

I would say that’s a bit of an improvement, no? To be fair, I did install a bunch of digital brushes in the intervening 13 years, so I had more texture options for coloring Izzy. Even so, I have learned a lot about flatting and clipping masks and transparency and so forth.

This is all self-taught, by the way. I would love to take a class in digital coloring someday, but it ain’t happened yet.

Cheers,

Dylan

OUT FRONT Magazine – August 2022 issue – music

OUT FRONT Magazine – August 2022 issue – music published on

The August issue of OUT FRONT Magazine is all about music, so of course I had to do a comic about how Judas Priest queered heavy metal. This one has a surprise twist ending, so be sure to read the full comic!

And no, the surprise twist is not that Rob Halford is gay. We’ve known THAT for years.

Denverites can pick up a free print copy of the magazine at one of their drop locations, or you can read the digital edition here (my comic is on page 8): https://outfrontmagazine.com/august-2022-sound-and-fury/

Our Flag Means Death fan merch - Izzy Hands leather pride sticker

Also, speaking of queer leather culture, I would be remiss if I didn’t mention (again) the Izzy-themed leather pride flag stickers I made for all the Our Flag Means Death pervs. They’re $4 each, free shipping in the U.S., $2 shipping elsewhere in the world (that’s $2 per order, not per sticker, so stock up!). You can find them in my Ko-Fi store.

Cheers,

Dylan

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
