In celebration of SF Pride weekend, here’s a sneak peek of Fantagraphics’ upcoming NO STRAIGHT LINES: FOUR DECADES OF QUEER COMICS historical anthology put together and edited by Isotope regular Justin Hall of GLAMAZONIA fame.
This book is debuting at San Diego Comic Con this year but Justin was kind enough to give us a peek at an advance copy during our (rather awesome) HENRY & GLENN party. NO STRAIGHT LINES is a massive 328-page hardcover and the first real comprehensive historical look at the history of LGBTQ comics. Filled with excerpts by creators like Alison Bechdel, Howard Cruse, Christine Smith, Ralf Konig, Dan Savage, Eric Shanower, Ellen Forney, former Isotope staffer Tristan Crane, and so many more.
Check out these two outrageously hilarious Mexican wrestling masked interviews with Mister Hall for more about this book. Video one is here. And also check out video two which takes place in a bathtub. (laugh)!
Have a great Pride weekend!
