Author Dylan Edwards uses Alison Bechdel-like drawings to illustrate stories pulled from the real lives of six queer transgender men in this worthy new read. Reflecting the wide range of life paths, identities, and sexual experiences that non-hetero trans men can have, Transposes may be considered “educational” but readers will be too engaged in the compelling storylines to notice.

Remember, although these books may feature comic-like artwork, they are decidedly adult in content and visuals.
