Complete-Ethan-Green-700x700Eric Orner
The Completely Unfabulous Social Life of Ethan Green
Kartoniert / Softcover, 216 Seiten, vollfarbig & s/w, 24,99 EUR

In über 300 Episoden und in über 80 (nicht nur schwulen) Zeitungen und Zeitschriften zeichnete Eric Orner von 1989 bis 2005 das absolut unfabulöse Sozialverhalten des Ethan Green und schuf damit so etwas wie das Äquivalent zu Ralf Königs Werk im englischsprachigen Raum. Vom unsicheren Jungschwulen bis zum gestanden schwulen Mann, der aber immer wieder durch sein Liebesleben aus der Bahn geworfen wird, begleitet Orner dabei seine Figur. Mit viel Sympathie, durchaus autobiographischen Anleihen und einem scharfen Blick auf die absurden und surrealen Momente des (schwulen) Lebens. Nicht immer auf Pointen getrimmt, aber durchgehend witzig liegen nun erstmals alle Episoden dieses wegweisenden Comics gesammelt vor.

Eric Orner’s groundbreaking comic strip, “The Mostly Unfabulous Social Life of Ethan Green”, debuted in 1990 and appeared in papers in a hundred cities across the US, Canada and the UK. Now, for the first time, every subversive, laugh-out-loud funny, and occasionally surreal episode from the gay everyman’s 15 years in print is in one deluxe collection.
Includes behind-the-scenes stories from the author, bonus strips, and a foreword by New York Times bestselling author David Ebershoff.

Al-Qaedas-Super-Secret-Weapon-490x700David J. Zelman
Al Qaeda's Super Secret Weapon
Kartoniert / Softcover, 72 Seiten, vollfarbig, 14,99 EUR, Altersnachweis erforderlich

Nach dem Ende der "Don´t Ask, Don´t Tell" Doktrine sieht eine Gruppe von AL Qaeda Terroristen ihre Chance gekommen. Schwule Schläfer sollen die Truppen der US-Armee unterwandern und die Moral der Truppe zerstören. Mahmoud ist einer von ihnen. Er geht nach San Francisco, sucht sich einen Freund und versucht, so viel wie möglich über schwules Leben und schwulen Sex zu lernen. Dass er dabei beginnt, seine Religion, seine Erziehung und die Beweggründe seines Handelns zu hinterfragen, hindert ihn nicht daran, zur Armee zu gehen, um seinen Auftrag zu erfüllen. Anders als gedacht, hat dort aber niemand ein Problem mit seinem "vorgetäuschten" Schwulsein. Die spontane Sexparty im Grenzgebiet zwischen Pakistan und Indien erweist sich dann aber doch als keine so gute Idee und der indische Subkontinent vergeht im atomaren Feuer. Mahmoud ist da aber schon auf dem Weg zurück nach San Francisco zu seinem "vorgetäuschten" Freund. Denn wenn auch die Welt untergeht, Mahmoud hat seinen Platz in ihr gefunden...

Einigen Verlagen war dieser großartige Comic einfach zu heiß. Nicht etwa wegen der reichlich vorhanden schwulen Sexszenen, nein, man befürchtete allen Ernstes "negative Reaktionen" seitens der (im wahrsten Sinne des Wortes) verarschten Terroristen. Dabei bekommt in dieser wundervolle Farce nicht nur Al Qaeda ihr Fett weg. Nein, auch Republikaner, der Krieg gegen den Terror™ und so ziemlich jedes schwule Klischee werden durch den Kakao gezogen. Mit einem Wort: großartig!

Turns out the end of "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" was just the opening that the terrorists were waiting for! This witty, sexy, spy tale sends up Republicans, the War on Terror™ and gay clichés from A to Z. The end of the world was never so fabulous!

Anything-That-Loves-490x700Charles "Zan" Christensen (Hg.)
Anything That Loves.
Comics beyound "gay" and "straight"
Kartoniert / Softcover, 216 Seiten, vollfarbig, 29,99 EUR

"Why don't you just come out already?"
"How can you be bi if you're married?"
"You'll do it with anything that moves."

For all their differences, gay and straight people are often united in their problems with bisexuality. People who follow their hearts wherever they lead, regardless of gender, are still usually met with disbelief and suspicion.
From confessional, personal accounts to erotic flights of fancy to undersea identity politics, this collection of comics invites the reader to step outside of the categories and explore the wild and wonderful uncharted territory between "gay" and "straight".

Featuring comics and illustrations by Adam Pruett, Agnes Czaja, Alex Dahm, Amy T. Falcone, Ashley Cook & Caroline Hobbs, Bill Roundy, Ellen Forney, Erika Moen, Jason A. Quest, Jason Thompson, John Lustig, Jon Macy, Josh Trujillo & Dave Valeza, Kate Leth, Kevin Boze, Leanne Franson, Leia Weathington, Lena H. Chandhok, Margreet de Heer, MariNaomi, Maurice Vellekoop, Melaina, Nick Leonard, Powflip, Randall Kirby, Roberta Gregory, Sam Orchard, Sam Saturday, Stasia Burrington, Steve Orlando, Tania Walker, and Tara Madison Avery & Mike Sullivan.
Featuring an introduction by editor Charles "Zan" Christensen and a foreword by PoMoSexuals author Carol Queen, PhD.



A-Waste-of-Time-Cover-Spread-10x7-700x490Rick Worley
A Waste of Time
Kartoniert / Softcover, Querformat, 136 Seiten, s/w, 19,99 EUR

Autobiografische (Web-)Comics sind nur dann wirklich gut und/oder erfolgreich, wenn sie entwaffnend ehrlich sind oder einzigartige Charaktere aufweisen. "A Waste of Time" hat beides! Rick Worley zeichnet sich selbst als niedlichen Hasen und seine Mitbewohner sind ein fundamentalistischer Teddybär, ein verliebter Roboter und ein sexsüchtiger Fuchs (ok, nicht so einzigartig, eher ein Klischee). Gleichzeitig ist dieser Comic so nah an Ricks echtem Liebesleben, dass er manche Beziehungen quasi über den Comic führt. Seine Freunde und Internetbekanntschaften zeichnet Rick Worley dabei als sexy Twinks in einem realistischen Stil, was nicht unerheblich zum Lesevergnügen beiträgt. Poesie und politische Unkorrektheit wechseln sich ab bei Ricks ewiger Suche nach dem "Einen" und oft erfährt der Leser ein bisschen mehr als er eigentlich wissen möchte. Aber genau so muss es sein.

Foul-mouthed, sex-obsessed and misanthropic, Rick is no ordinary cute cartoon rabbit. The strips in this hysterically funny, surprisingly sweet collection range from fantasy tales about a closeted fundamentalist teddy bear, an oversexed fox, and a doomed robot love affair to autobiographical comics that share maybe a little too much information about the author. In their quest for contentment, the characters fail, fail, and sometimes fail again, but they never stop looking. There´s always the chance they´ll find that one person who was worth the search.
Or maybe not.
"There´s a brutal frankness and honesty coming from these foxes and teddy bears that you rarely see anywhere else. Comics are the one of the last havens to be truly offensive and beautifully unapologetic." - from the Foreword by StevieD and EvilJeff from the Comic Book Queers podcast.
"Rick Worley´s insightful A Waste of Time comic strips are simultaneously tender and perverse-like his bunny." - Howard Cruse Author of "Stuck Rubber Baby" and "Wendel".

Kartoniert / Softcover, 120 Seiten, s/w, 19,99 EUR

Wann ist ein Mann ein Mann? Das diese alte grönemeyersche Frage für Frau-zum-Mann-Transsexuelle ebenso schwer zu beantworten ist wie für biologische Männer, zeigt uns Dylan Edward mit "Transposes".

Leia Weathington´s sword-and-sorcery epic "The Legend of Bold Riley" is illustrated by Leia and a host of talented artists.
"Who is Bold Riley?" you might ask. She has hunted the wildest game and dallied with countless beautiful girls, but still longs to know the world beyond the city walls. Princess Rilavashana SanParite, called Bold Riley, leaves behind her station and sets out to travel through distant lands and find forgotten ruins, fearsome enemies, inscrutable gods and tragic love.

Charles "Zan" Christensen (Story), Mark Brill (Zeichnungen)

The Power Within

Geheftet, 32 Seiten, durchgehend farbig, in englischer Sprache, 3,00 EUR

Shannon ist 13 und schwul. Sein Vater und seine Lehrer sagen ihm, er solle sich lieber nicht zu auffällig benehmen und sich anpassen. Doch das kann und will Shannon nicht. In der Schule wird er dafür gemobbt, gehänselt, schikaniert und verprügelt. Er hat eine gute Freundin, die versucht ihm beizustehen, und in ganz schlimmen Momenten erträumt er sich ein Superhelden-Alter-Ego, das ihm hilft, sich mit seinen Peinigern auseinander zu setzen (auf gute alte Superhelden-Art). Doch irgendwann wird der Druck zu groß und Shannon droht an seiner Umwelt zu zerbrechen.

"The Power Within" spielt auf eindrucksvolle Weise mit dem Genre des Superhelden-Comics und vermittelt ganz im Sinne des "It Gets Better Projekts" (www.itgetsbetter.org) , eine einfache Durchhaltebotschaft, ohne dabei zu beschwichtigen oder platt zu sein.

Das einfache Englisch macht diesen Comic ideal für den Einsatz in Jugendgruppen oder im (englischsprachigen) Schulunterricht. Eine Reihe von diskussionsvorbereitenden Fragen ergänzen dafür den Comic. Bonus-Comics und Illustrationen von Größen wie Greg Rucka, Donna Barr, Gail Simone und anderen machen das Heft aber auch für Comic-Fans interessant.
