No Straight Lines showcases major names such as Alison Bechdel, Howard Cruse, and Ralf Koenig (one of Europe’s most popular cartoonists), as well as high-profile, crossover creators who have dabbled in LGBT cartooning, like legendary NYC artist David Wojnarowicz and media darling and advice columnist Dan Savage. No Straight Lines also spotlights many talented creators who never made it out of the queer comics ghetto, but produced amazing work that deserves wider attention. Queer cartooning encompasses some of the best and most interesting comics of the last four decades, with creators tackling complex issues of identity and a changing society with intelligence, humor, and imagination. This book celebrates this vibrant artistic underground by gathering together a collection of excellent stories that can be enjoyed by all. 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 thus provide a unique window into the hopes, fears, and fantasies of queer people for the last four decades. These comics have forged their aesthetics from the influences of underground comix, gay erotic art, punk zines, and the biting commentaries of drag queens, bull dykes, and other marginalized queers. They have analyzed their own communities, and their relationship with the broader society. They are smart, funny, and profound. No Straight Lines has been heralded by people interested in comics history, and people invested in LGBT culture will embrace it as a unique and invaluable collection.

This issue, the first in four years, concludes Steve MacIsaac's "Unpacking" graphic novel. Starting in Shirtlifter #3, "Unpacking" follows Matt, a gay graphic designer living in Vancouver. Newly-single after the sudden dissolution of an eight-year relationship, Matt is living in a new apartment he can't seem to quite move into, and is wary of becoming involved with anyone ever again. His commitment to remaining single is challenged when he begins spending time with Connor, an Australian-ex pat who identifies as straight, is married to a woman, and seems to be the only person capable of cutting through Matt's defenses. Also features new stories from Jon Macy and Eric Kostiuk Williams. 100 pages, color.

Winner of the 2014 Ignatz Award for Outstanding Anthology! QU33R, from editor Rob Kirby, features 241 pages of new comics from 33 contributors—legends and new faces alike. In 2012, Justin Hall edited a book called No Straight Lines: Four Decades of Queer Comics, that took readers on a journey from the beginnings of LGBT comics history to the present day. QU33R is an all-new project featuring queer comics legends as well as new talents that picks up where No Straight Lines left off. We've set down our history, now QU33R shines a light on our future! QU33R had its genesis in an all-color queer comic zine called THREE, which featured three stories by three creators or teams per issue. Rob Kirby published three installments of THREE annually from 2010 to 2012, and the series did well, garnering not only an Ignatz nomination for Outstanding Anthology or Collection but also earning Rob the Prism Comics Queer Press Grant in 2011. Producing the anthology was immensely gratifying, but featuring just three comics and publishing only once per year meant a lot of cartoonists weren’t getting the exposure they deserved. The publishing opportunities for queer cartoonists and queer subject matter are still limited, even today, and Rob longed for a wider distribution than he was able to manage on his own. He approached Northwest Press about doing a bigger compendium of all-new work. While THREE was happening, Justin Hall was preparing his book No Straight Lines: Four Decades of Queer Comics, which Fantagraphics published in the summer of 2012. No Straight Lines traced the history of queer comics from their humble beginnings in the late 60’s/early 70’s all the way up to the present. The book was a whopping, award-winning success. Rob got to thinking that a follow-up volume—a sort-of-sequel focusing on all new work—would seal the deal, informing the world at large that we are still here, still queer, and still producing fresh and innovative work. He wanted to include not only several queer comics veterans, but also some fresh new faces and a few folks who haven’t necessarily belonged to the orthodox "queer comics scene" but have been doing non-heteronormative work all along. QU33R features over 240 pages of new comics from a cross-generational lineup of award-winning LGBTQ cartoonists: Amanda Verwey (Manderz Totally Top Private Diary) Andy Hartzell (Fox Bunny Funny, Xeric grant recipient Bread and Circuses) Annie Murphy (Gay Genius, I Still Live) Carlo Quispe (Uranus) Carrie McNinch (You Don’t Get There From Here, The Assassin and the Whiner) Christine Smith (The Princess) Craig Bostick (Darby Crash, Go-Go Girl, Boy Trouble) David Kelly (Rainy Day Recess: The Complete Steven’s Comics, Boy Trouble) Diane DiMassa (Hothead Paisan: Homicidal Lesbian Terrorist) Dylan "NDR" Edwards (Transposes, Politically InQueerect) Ed Luce (Wuvable Oaf)Edie Fake (Gaylord Phoenix) Eric Kostiuk Williams (Hungry Bottom Comics) Eric Orner (The Mostly Unfabulous Social Life of Ethan Green) Howard Cruse (Stuck Rubber Baby, Wendel, Barefootz) Ivan Velez, Jr. (Tales of the Closet, Dead High Yearbook) Jennifer Camper (Juicy Mother, Rude Girls and Dangerous Women, subGURLZ) Jon Macy (Teleny and Camille, Fearful Hunter, Nefarismo) Jose-Luis Olivares (Pansy Boy) Justin Hall (No Straight Lines: Four Decades of Queer Comics, Glamazonia, True Travel Tales) Kris Dresen (Manya, Max & Lily, She Said) L.

Robert Triptow stumbled across a real-life class photo of an anonymous 1937 public school under a pile of garbage and his imagination took off. Several years later, the result is the utterly charming, completely original graphic novella Class Photo. Using the photo as a springboard, each student’s fictionalized life is depicted in one-page installments. Triptow weaves these imagined lives in and out like so many dedications in a yearbook, mixing in social satire, elegant cartooning, occasionally disgusting hilarity, and plenty of good, clean fun. What began as a self-motivating formal exercise has yielded one of the more whimsically engaging, original, and entertaining graphic books in recent memory.
