Transposes makes Comicosity’s top 100 LGBTA list!

Transposes makes Comicosity’s top 100 LGBTA list! published on No Comments on Transposes makes Comicosity’s top 100 LGBTA list!

Transposes by Dylan Edwards comics about transgender people

Over the past few months, Comicosity has been assembling a list of top 100 comics with LGBTA representation, and Transposes is featured as one of the titles.

There’s a lot of good stuff on the list, so if you’re hankerin’ for new queer/trans comics to read, give it a look!

It’s been awful quiet around here. What else is going on, you might ask?

Mostly I’ve been working on stuff for print publication, so I haven’t had much to post online. Turned in my story for the upcoming Secret Loves of Geeks anthology (should be out this winter), and am currently scribbling away on a couple of pieces for Stacked Deck Press’s next coloring book (Butches of the 20s, 30s, and 40s). The first coloring book of Queer Heroes is available for purchase here, and includes my Edward Gorey illustration.

Anyway, if you want to take a sneak peek at these works in progress, I’ve been keeping my Patrons updated with teasers. One single dollar a month gets you access, and helps keep me creating queer comics goodness.

Cheers,

Dylan

Valley of the Silk Sky page 39, and a PiQue peek

Valley of the Silk Sky queer YA SFF webcomic

Page 39 of Valley of the Silk Sky features PERKY ENTHUSIASM and BLOOD. Read all about it here:

For new folks who may have wandered in after reading my Fusion comic on trans representation in media, Valley of the Silk Sky is my queer YA science fiction webcomic that features an all-nonbinary cast and a few trans characters. I post the individual VoSS pages here on Studio NDR (my ancient, creaky website devoted to my art), but I built a whole other website to host All Things Valley of the Silk Sky.

So you’d want to head over there if you’re a nerd for world-building, or want to read up on the cast, or find out more about other VoSS stories in other publications.

As far as where to read the pages, as I said you can read them here on Studio NDR, but this site build is, as I said, old and not very mobile-friendly. If you prefer to read on a tablet or phone, both the Voss tumblr website and the Tapastic page are mobile-friendly. Tapastic is specifically designed for webcomic publishing, so it has several nifty features for your reading pleasure, like place-holding and new page alerts.

Politically InQueerect cameo in Transposes

Speaking of Tapastic, I started adding some Politically InQueerect cameos to the PiQue archive there. The most recent post is from Transposes, where Archer, Todd, and Dee show up as faces in a crowd. See the page in question here, and read the “more” stuff at the bottom for further trivia.

Finally, to any new readers, you can buy Transposes and Politically InQueerect comics from my publisher, Northwest Press. And you can read a 16-page standalone Valley of the Silk Sky story in the Beyond Anthology. Neat!

Anyway, see you next Wednesday for the latest VoSS installment!

Cheers,

Dylan

I am super-excited that Transposes was featured in this Publishers Weekly list of 13 Great LGBTQ Comics. Check it out, there’s a lot of great stuff in there, including two anthologies I’m in, No Straight Lines and QU33R.

It’s very gratifying to be on a short list with the likes of Alison Bechdel and Howard Cruse.

Anyway, go give it a look and check out all these awesome queer comics!

Lots of PiQue goings on, and an art show

Lots of PiQue goings on, and an art show published on No Comments on Lots of PiQue goings on, and an art show

Politically InQueerect Todd Archer Barry Bonds

This week’s Politically InQueerect on Tapastic is a repurposed Outfield comic from days of yore. Yeah, it’s not the right season for discussing baseball, but I’ll be spending most of the summer running the new, long-form PiQue story I’ve been working furiously on. I’m in the midst of penciling page 20, and have inked up through page 14. Still need to start coloring, but a trip to ye olde art shoppe is required before that can begin.

Anyhow, look for this new story to start running sometime in February (when, exactly, in Feb I have not yet determined. Will depend on how fast the coloring goes). Until then, have a wee teaser image:

Finally, I’m in an art show here in Denver, at the Wazee Union. It’ll be up throughout January 2014, so if you’re in town, stop by to check out artwork by me and a bunch of other local cartoonists. One of the pieces I have up is an original page from Transposes, dontcha know. If you can’t make it to the show, Denver Westword has a nifty photo gallery up from the opening.

Cheers,

Dylan

New week, new PIQue

New week, new PIQue published on No Comments on New week, new PIQue

Politically InQueerect

Let’s find out what Todd and Dee are up to, shall we? Dee asks the question you’ve all been harboring, then gets distracted by a cute girl before she can press for an answer. It’s all in this week’s PIQue.

Lammy update: Transposes did not win (sad trombone), but No Straight Lines scooped up the Lammy for best anthology. So yay for that, huge props to Justin for putting together such an amazing anthology, and big grats to all the contributors (myself included, hem hem). Oh, and for those of you who have not yet snagged your own copy of No Straight Lines and have been frustrated in trying to find a copy on account of the print run selling out, you will be pleased to learn that a second printing is in the works. This will be a softcover, so it’ll be cheaper to boot. Looks like Fantagraphics is taking pre-orders, so go throw some dollars at ’em.

Cheers,

Dylan

PIQue, a Podcast, and Plambda Pliterary Pawards

Politically InQueerect

First off, it being Wednesday, I have for you the latest episode of the remastered-in-color Politically InQueerect. Click on through to see it as you’ve never seen it before! Bonus points if you can spot Rand’s movie quote paraphrase.

Next up, as I mentioned last week, I did a podcast interview with Comic Book Queers, wherein we discuss Transposes, the Chicago bathhouse scene (for some reason), and other highly inappropriate things. It was a great deal of fun, and you should ought give it a listen.

Finally, this very Monday is the Lambda Literary Awards. As you may recall, Transposes is a finalist in the Transgender Non-Fiction category, and No Straight Lines (in which I have three cartoons) is nominated for Best Anthology (full list of finalists is here). I’m heading off to New York to partake in the festivities. Should be exciting, and if nothing else I have an excuse to spend a few days in NYC. We shall see what transpires!

Cheers,

Dylan

New PiQues, and Denver Lambda reading for Transposes this Friday

New PiQues, and Denver Lambda reading for Transposes this Friday published on No Comments on New PiQues, and Denver Lambda reading for Transposes this Friday

I guess I totally failed to update here last week, for which you can blame my cross-country move and resultant lack of internet. I did, however, continue to upload remastered Politically InQueerect comics to Tapastic, so get yerself over here to get caught up:

politically inqueerect #205pique206_tn

Also, if you’re in the Denver area, you should totally come to the Lambda Literary Award Finalist Readings this Friday, May 10, at 6:30 PM. There’s a Facebook invite here with deets, or you can just head to the Belmar Public Library at 555 S. Allison Parkway, Lakewood, CO 80226. There will be six authors reading altogether, and it’s free to attend, so really you have no excuse. I’ll be reading from Transposes (Henry’s chapter), and will also be showering the attendees with free PiQue bookmarks. So! See you Friday, yeah?

Cheers,

Dylan

Transposes gets a Lambda nomination!

Transposes gets a Lambda nomination! published on No Comments on Transposes gets a Lambda nomination!

Transposes by Dylan EdwardsEarlier this week, the Lambda Literary Foundation released the list of nominees for the 25th Annual Lambda Literary Awards, and Transposes was nominated for Transgender Nonfiction. The awards ceremony will be June 3, 2013, so I’ll let you know then if I won or not. But it’s a thrill and an honor to be nominated. Here’s the Northwest Press statement about the nomination, wherein you may learn what I plan to wear to the awards.

Also nominated, in the LGBT Anthology category, was No Straight Lines, the Fantagraphics tome in which I have three cartoons. So that’s very exciting also, and huge congrats to Justin Hall and all the other contributors for the nod!

Okay, back to packing and trying to keep the cats out of the boxes.

Cheers,

Dylan
