LGBTQ+ webcomic recommendations #1

I promised this post was coming so here it is.

These are all the lgbtq+ webcomics I’ve read this year (but basically in my life since I didn’t read any before) and they’re also the only webcomics I’ve read lmao. They’re not too many and I considered waiting to have more to rec but then it would have ended up being an awfully long post where I couldn’t even spend a few words on each of them so I decided to post it now with the few I have, which I believe are all really good anyway.

I will definitely keep finding more and reading them so I’m guessing I will write a similar post in a few months to update this list, but in the meantime I hope you’ll find this useful.

All of these are free to read and I will leave links so you can easily start them. On their respective pages you can also find out how to support the authors by buying physical copies and/or comic-related merch, so make sure to consider supporting them if you enjoyed the comic they put up for free.

๐Ÿณ๏ธโ€๐ŸŒˆย Check, Please! by Ngozi Ukazuย

I think this was my first ever webcomic and I can’t think of a better way to get started on this genre. It’s a queer sports comic and it’s not only focused on romance but a huge part of it is about friendship. I still need to catch up with the latest update since this is still ongoing but I love it so much and I want literally everyone to read it.

๐ŸŒˆย Starfighter by Hamlet Machineย 

8453265

I was hesitant about having this in this list because its tone is very different from all the other webcomics I’m mentioning today. It’s much darker and it’s certainly queer because it sees a M/M relationship but it’s not really about that, it’s more of a dark and kind of twisted story and it’s very explicit so it won’t appeal to everyone. It can be a little disturbing and confusing especially at the beginning, and I wasn’t really sure whether I should keep going or not, but the end of the chapters always made me want to read more.

๐Ÿณ๏ธโ€๐ŸŒˆย The Less Than Epic Adventures of TJ and Amal by E.K. Weaver

12191040

This is a pretty long webcomic which is already completed so if you don’t like having to wait for updates this is definitely for you. The title says enough about the plot, this is very character driven and it follows the road trip of two strangers who fall in love with each other. I basically loved everything about it and the pacing really worked for me in the sense that I could feel the MCs develop feelings for each other naturally and not because the author decided it. The art is also fantastic and the dialogues are so funny it hurt. It has nsfw scenes but they’re always very well woven into the story and they’re not gratuitous.

๐ŸŒˆย Rock and Riot by Chelsey Furedi

27402328

This is easily described asย Grease if everyone was queer. Characters are bi, gay, lesbian, trans, genderqueer, demi, aroace. I don’t think I need to add more to this description lol.

๐Ÿณ๏ธโ€๐ŸŒˆย Griefer Belt by Kali de Wild

28450149-_uy630_sr1200630_

This is about bad people. These are criminals and the comic focuses more on their relationships with each other, but it also doesn’t try to justify what they do for a living or to romanticize crime, which is one of my pet peeves. The story is engaging and if you can move past the fact that these are morally grey characters who lean more on the “black” side of the spectrum, then you will definitely like it.

๐ŸŒˆย Heartstopper by Alice Oseman

34235800

This is basically the cutest thing ever and everyone needs to read it. The author is really talented and if you weren’t aware of it she’s the author of Radio Silenceย which I still haven’t read but I’ve only heard good things about. She’s also a very good artist and this comic is so funny and relatable you can’t not love it.

๐Ÿณ๏ธโ€๐ŸŒˆย Princess Princess Ever After by Katie O’Neill

30025791

This is a wlw fairy tale retelling which is written for both a younger audience and an adult one. Kids will see what the story shows, which is two princesses falling in love with each other. Adults will also see that this is a story full of subtext despite its short length, but it’s also not less lighthearted because of it. This is a story that I believe you can read with your child even if they’re younger than the suggested middle grade.

Status: complete

Audience: middle grade (or even younger) and up

๐ŸŒˆย Tripping Over You by Owen White and Suzana Harcum

tripping_over_you_at_nycc_by_suzona-d4cguyy

This is a slice of life webcomic following Milo and Liam. It’s not too much of a spoiler since it happens pretty early in the comic (if you consider the overall length of it) but the two get together and most of the comic is about their life as an established couple. I really loved it and appreciate the fact that there’s never useless relationship drama and the two characters manage to communicate their issues in a healthy way. I 100% recommend it if you love slice of life.

And here ends my list for now. Let me know if you’ve read any or if you’re planning to, and I really hope this was useful!

  1. Oh I’ve read Starfighter and I have got to agree with you. It’s defiantly confusing at the beginning and the story is a little twisted but there is just something about it that makes me want to read more.๐Ÿ˜‚ I’m also reading Check Please, I haven’t finished yet I have it on hold until SapphicAThon ends but I just adore it so far, the team are awesome and Bitty is adorable ๐Ÿ˜
