It’s my favorite time of the year, AKA time to post my recommendations for my favorite queer webcomics. And folks, I’ve read so many since my first rec post (which you definitely need to check out) that I couldn’t even fit them all in this post and I’ve already started a draft for a 3rd post.
If you’re not familiar with the concept of webcomics, they’re completely free comics that creators put online, usually posting one page or one chapter at the time, and they can be found on the creators’ websites or on sites like tapas or webtoons.
🏳️🌈 Always Human by Ari Walkingnorth
Content warnings: eating disorder, body image issues
I can’t believe after ONE YEAR I finally get to recommend this on my blog too! This has one of the sweetest and softest f/f relationships, also the art, colors and music are so soothing and reading it feels like a warm hug.
🌈 Long Exposure by Kam “Mars” Heyward
Content warnings: bullying, homophobia, violence, mention of pedophilia, abuse
I love this webcomic so much. It definitely has heavy themes as you can see from my content warnings, but it also has a really nice and atypical m/m relationship and paranormal elements.
🏳️🌈Heir’s Game by Suspu
Content warnings: mild violence
This is by the same creator of Shootaround so I immediately started it after finishing that one. It’s still in its early chapters and I anticipate it’s going to be very long, so it’s kind of hard to talk about it so far. But it has duels, court intrigues and disaster gays.
🌈 No End by Erli & Kromi
Content warnings: violence, mild gore, past abusive relationships,
I’ve said this before but I would nominate this in my top 3 favorite webcomics without a doubt. I love the characters and the art, and how everyone is queer. There’s something in this for everyone: zombies, characters that will capture your heart, relationship drama, soft romances, found family.
🏳️🌈 The Prince and the Swan by April Pierce
Content warnings: captivity, abuse
This is a loose retelling of Swan Lake with a m/m romance. I really like the subdued humor in it and the fairy tale setting, and I appreciate the slightly slower pace that allows to get to know the characters better.
🌈 Sonnet by Emily Cheeseman & Lindsey Rodgers
Content warnings: fights/duels, injury
This is a webcomic entirely written in sonnets and if that scares you let me tell you that once you get a little used to it it’s really easy to read. It could even be read without the text as a children book or something and it’d still be 100% understandable. It’s a story about two knights falling in love and it doesn’t hurt that they remind me a lot of Damen and Laurent.
🏳️🌈 Shootaround by Suspu
This was such a pleasure to read! I wanted more queer zombie webcomics after No End and this had a very different tone from it and just what I needed. This made me laugh so much and at the same time it has its serious moments, but it’s very hopeful and it has tons of rep (trans, bi, polyam, POC, etc). Also, found family! Who doesn’t love that.
🌈 On A Sunbeam by Tillie Walden
Content warnings: bullying, misgendering
This is a story about a girl who is trying to find her high school girlfriend in space. It’s told in both the present and in flashbacks where we get to see the two girls a few years ago and how they got together. It is really diverse and the art, while not my personal favorite, is by all means beautiful.
And that’s it for today, but I’m sure I’ll be back with more webcomic recs in a few months because I’m always looking for more to read, and when I do I can’t contain my excitement for them and I need everyone to read them.
Please let me know if you’ve read any of these or if you’re planning to read them, and if you have any recommendations definitely drop them in the comments!
