Until recently, queer cartooning existed in a parallel universe to the rest of comics, appearing only in gay newspapers and gay bookstores and not in comic book stores, mainstream bookstores or newspapers. The insular nature of the world of queer cartooning, however, created a fascinating artistic scene. LGBT comics have been an uncensored, internal conversation within the queer community, and ...

Die Wiederentdeckung des originalen Textes lohnt sich besonders, um die im kollektiven Gedächtnis verankerten Bilder zu ergänzen, die Hollywood 1939 mit dem ... Weiterlesen
