LGBT Previews Part 1 March 2018

Here are the comics and graphic novels from the “back” of Previews March catalog that are created by or may appeal to LGBTQ+ people. This month’s feature image is from Tillie Walden’s I Love This Part published by Avery Hill. Matteo Pizzolo and Soo Lee’s Billionaire Killers stood out at me as does Puerto Rico Strong anthology from Lion Forge to benefit the people of Puerto Rico and the necessary post hurricane rebuilding efforts and basic needs. Look for Megan Rose Gedris’ Spectacle graphic novel from Oni and The Refrigerator Monologues featuring linked stories from the points of view wives, girlfriends, and female heroes who’ve been “refrigerated” from Saga Press.

Part two with solicitations from Dark Horse, D, IDW, Image, and Marvel is up here.

The “fine print”! People’s names listed in bold are either LGBT+ or supportive. Credit where credit is due – Andy Mangels because this was his idea and to Mike McDermott and Steven Leitman for their suggestions and input about several series that have been added to the list! As much as we try, sometimes a book, series, or creator is overlooked. Send us a message if that’s the case or to let us know about your work that doesn’t appear in Previews.

The beg! Please think about using our Amazon affiliate link to order any of trades or graphic novels with links in the list (or any thing from Amazon). Of course, supporting your local comic shop and book stores is important too! Diamond order codes provided for easy ordering with your comic shop!
