Queer Webcomics

Hello All,

I assigned you the webcomic Dar and showed you some other Queer webcomics in class recently.  Here are the links and MLA citations for them.  You CAN choose to write about one or more of these for your final research paper; we will talk more about that in class tomorrow.

  • Dar: A Super Girly Top Secret Comic Diary(CLICK HERE)
    • Citation: Moen, Erika.  Dar: A Super Girly Top Secret Comic Diary.  29 December 2009.  http://www.darcomic.com/
  •   Rooster Tails (CLICK HERE)
    • Citation: Orchard, Sam.  Rooster Tails.  3 May 2017.  http://www.roostertailscomic.com/
  • Robot Hugs (CLICK HERE)
    • Citation: R.H.  Robot Hugs.  20 April 2017.  http://www.robot-hugs.com/
  •   Shades of A (CLICK HERE)
    • I did not mention this webcomic in class, but I feel as if I may not have given enough consideration to asexual/ace identity this semester.  This webcomic is a parody of the infamous 50 Shades of Grey, but one of the main characters is asexual.
    • This is NOT AT ALL safe for work!!!
    • Content warning: there are fairly explicit depictions and discussion of fetish and BDSM practices.  (However, they are MUCH more respectfully and fairly addressed than in 50 Shades of Grey!)
    • Citation: Kimpton, K.A.  Shades of A.  1 January 2013.  http://www.discordcomics.com/comic/shades-cover/
  • The Princess (CLICK HERE)
    • Again, this is a webcomic I did not mention in class.
    • It is a very family-friendly and sweet narrative about a Trans* girl.  Also, one of her best friends is gender-fluid.
    • Based on what I’ve read in the comments, it seems like some parents of Trans* children have used this webcomic as a resource and a teaching tool for themselves and their children.
    • Citation: Smith, Christine.  The Princess.  2017.  http://www.theprincesscomic.com/

Enjoy,

Prof. Jaime Weida
