Queer Works of Northwest Press and Fantagraphics
Rather than having its own booth, Northwest Press — which exclusively produces LGBT comic anthologies and graphic novels, including Anything That Loves, The Lavender Menace: Tales of Queer Villainy!, Jayson, and Transposes — partnered with Prism Comics.
Meanwhile, Fantagraphics offered another queer oasis, with signings by Gilbert Hernandez (Love and Rockets, Julio’s Day), Justin Hall (No Straight Lines) and Dylan Edwards (Transposes, Politically InQueerect on Tapastic.com), and a wide selection of LGBT graphic novels, including the re-release of Samuel R. Delany’s previously out-of-print love story Bread and Wine, the first American printing of Moto Hagio’s remarkable boys’ romance manga The Heart of Thomas, a translation of Takako Shimura’s compelling trans youth series Wandering Son, and a dozen other titles.
