The promised roundup of LGBT+ webcomics I’ve recently gotten into!
Supercakes – Lesbian superheroes. And cute family shenanigans where your nieces and nephews might have still-uncontrolled superheroes. In progress?
What Happens in Carpediem… – Romantic comedy within an MMORPG where an in-game marriage means you can restore your partner’s MP by kissing them. In progress (hiatus).
Relativity – Serious sci-fi. Our heroine goes on a deep-space mission that’ll take her away from her wife for three years…then returns to Earth, and things get weird. In progress.
The Night Belongs To Us – A vampire saves a newly-turned werewolf, and gets officially registered as her sire. Awkward-cute ensues. In progress.
Artifice – An android on a mission that was supposed to just be about killing renegades gets his programming shaken up by a cute human. NSFW, complete.
LOKI – Western-style shenanigans with a gun-for-hire, his kid sidekick, crossdressing, and blushy tension with a local marshal. Complete.
Just did a refresher on the basic layout of this site. No more broken links! Lots of relevant ones, organized more sensibly! Promo images that sit harmoniously together!
If you spot any typos or errors, or if a link moved and now you can’t find it, drop a comment on this post to let me know!
I’ve been working my way through those other comics in my spare time. If you’ve noticed how my ComicRocket reading list recently ballooned to half again its original size…yeah, that’s from lots of queer webcomics getting added on a “to read, and find out if I like it” basis.
The bad news is, a lot of them, especially the m/m ones, are depressingly samey. Lots of “male character #1 bumps into male character #2…their eyes meet…blushing, heart-pounding, maybe some flower petals blowing by…literally no characterization for either of them yet…no idea what kind of dynamic they’re going to have as people…[optional] oh, whoops, now they’re having sex already.”
The good news? There are some real gems in here. Look forward to a detailed rec post soon.
In the meantime: anyone here who prefers to follow their webcomics on SmackJeeves? Then you’re in luck, because the BICP archives are getting crossposted.
They’ll come up at a rate of one page per day. If you’re intimidated by the size of the current archive, this is also a handy opportunity to read along at a more manageable pace.
And even if this doesn’t do anything for you — the main site is always going to be the best place to read — do still drop by and give the comic some +favorites/good ratings, if you have an account! Making it look more appealing to new potential readers always helps.
Your artist hasn’t been feeling well, and did not have the stamina to get yesterday’s page together. (Inconsequential messing around on the Internet, yes; putting together a quality comic, not so much.)
More completed webcomics, for your reading-the-whole-thing pleasure!
Spacetrawler — six random humans get picked up by aliens to solve a galactic diplomacy crisis. Amazing artwork, excellent SF.
1/0 — the most meta webcomic you’ll ever read. Fifteen years old, and all the more charming for how much it reflects its time.
Kid Radd — the best spritecomic you’ll ever read. (Possibly the only good spritecomic you’ll ever read…) Original sprites, everything is animated, starts as meta stuff about gaming and develops into an actual storyline.
Digger — a wombat miner gets lost, and finds her life turning unexpectedly epic. Hugo-Award-winning epic, even.
Sometimes you want to read along with a comic as it’s posted, and sometimes you just want to curl up with a completed story and archive-binge the whole thing. Here, for your bingeing pleasure: some complete archives.
Bite Me! — ridiculous vampire adventure in revolutionary France.
Angel Moxie — light-and-fluffy magical-girl parody.
Ozy and Millie — cute animal kids, very Calvin & Hobbes in its mix of thoughtfulness and troublemaking.
girly — ridiculous lesbian adventures. Crackfic incarnate.
Narbonic — the adventures of a mad scientist and her assistants. Ridiculous and affecting by turns.
