Celebrate Bent-Con With 7 Great LGBTQ Graphic Novels

Mood-setting graphic novels for Bent Con — the queer pop culture convention that celebrates LGBT comics, graphic novels, cartooning, animation, gaming, and sci-fi/fantasy/horror books and films.



Anything That Loves, Edited by Charles Zan Christensen (Northwest Press)

A 200-page anthology of bisexuality in comics, Anything That Loves was funded in part by a Kickstarter campaign and features work from well-known cartoonists like Adam Pruett, Erika Moen, Nick Leonard, and Tania Walker. The vignettes are quite varied and provide a wide range of characters in both sexual and nonsexual experiences (including dealing with biphobia both in and out of the LGBT community). Like any anthology some work is better than others, but as a whole it does a great job of demonstrating the complexity and diversity of bisexual experiences — and their reflection in comics.
