Announcing a hiatus never feels good.
If you’re new here, you might not know that I am a sucker for fairy tales, especially when they are LGBTQ+ retellings of the fabled classics. If you’re an avid reader of The Queerblr, then you absolutely know how much of a sucker I am for fairy tale retellings!
I have enjoyed every second of reading Mage & Demon Queen! This manga is beautifully drawn, side splittingly funny, and has a fairly in depth story hidden within its panels.
There’s nothing quite as comforting as dipping back into the cozy fictional town of Swanley, Massachusetts in Valentine Wheeler’s second installment in their Swanley Signs series, Give Way. The familiar setting and characters make falling into Kevin and Awais’ story effortless and enjoyable.
Buckle up, readers, because SJ Whitby is going to take you on an emotional, queer, action packed ride in the second installment of their Cute Mutants series, Cute Mutants Vol 2: Young, Gifted & Queer.
Are you someone who enjoys men-loving-men content? Are you someone who enjoys dating simulator games? Do you enjoy beautifully rendered art? Or more dad puns than you throw a football at? Well, if any of that sounds like a thing you’re into, then you’re probably going to enjoy Dream Daddy, developed and published by Game Grumps and written by Vernon Shaw and Leighton Gray.
For all my nerdery that I ascribe to, the X-Men franchise has never been one that I’ve ever considered myself at all interested in. Until now. But they’re not really x-men, are they? No. They’re better. Who am I referring to? The new formed vigilante superheroes of Cute Mutants, Vol 1: Mutant Pride, by SJ Whitby, that’s who! Cause they’re not just new, quite literally new to their powers, they’re definitely cute, and queer, and diverse af.
Nottingham is an origin story for Robyn Hood and her queer band of misfits in Sherwood forest and it absolutely kept me engaged from the moment I started reading until the very end. There is so much to love about this story that it’s hard to find a place to even start, especially because I don’t want to ruin any surprises that the book holds.
Mooncakes, by Suzanne Walker & Wendy Xu is a magical graphic novel that will cast a spell over your heart. This self-contained story follows a diverse cast of characters and pulls the reader right into the magical setting. Walker & Xu have crafted a touching story that weaves magic into the modern realm through the tale of a capable hard of hearing witch, a non-binary werewolf learning their own innate magics, a science minded best friend, and delightfully supportive and queer grandmas.
