I thought Moon was making fun of lesbians? That pregnancy arc I saw last time seemed like one big insult.


It's all terrible, but I found it while pursuing oglaf.com (I think I am revealing WAY too much of my internet tendencies).
The art is frightening and the main characters are 1 dimensional on their best days. It was just the only lesbian comic I hadn't seen listed here.

Oh and that pregnancy arc made me want to smack the author. I think the writer is female but if so she writes gay women like a straight man.

Every time they are topless it reminds me of those Playtex bottles with the little baggies.

It's been a while since I've been a Slipshine subscriber (mostly for Linburger and Key to Her Heart), but I was stunned when I realized it was the same Wocgirl writing those awful, stomach-turning, almost aggressively anti-erotic... whatever they are. Her other comics are "meh," but that one is just... aaagh! Does it even have fans?

Also, don't those babies technically count as characters under 18? Just saying...

Josh Lesnick adores her and is the biggest fan on 4chan, claims it's an intentional parody and defends it constantly. Take that as you will.

that sums up my thoughts on the comic as well. i'm tempted to believe that the artist actually set out to drain all the joy out of sex, and all of the standard "i wanted to write a funny comic about lesbian roommates" prattling is just a smokescreen

Not Jack Chick. His art is terrible, yes, but doesn't want me want to gouge out my own eyes. Even his writing doesn't make me want to do that (mostly, it makes me laugh, and even the tracts I don't find even unintentionally funny aren't anything I've never seen before). I meant the art in Moon over June. Sweet Lord, it's nearly as disgusting as late-period Ennis (e.g. Crossed which, judging from the excerpts I once saw on scans_daily, makes even the goriest stuff in Preacher look like Peter Rabbit by comparison).

Well thanks to pap's link I now have a better understanding of who/what jack Chick is . . . :shock:

Q: Jack Chick, would Charlotte's mother approve or disapprove? :twisted:

And assuming woren isn't a spambot: Simply Sarah

Been going sbout three years, updates once a week and IMHO the artwork has improved as the strip's gone on.

Dear spambot,

Well, Moon over June is porn that tries to go for a story now and then. Mostly inappropriate.

Now, there's Oglaf (either weird to good jokes in a fantasy setting or male/male sex/dick jokes) and Curvy (started out like the typical weird indie girl fantasy, then a black girl teleports otu of a warp gate and they fuck, whatever), and then there's Giz' Menage à trois, which is the Avatar of everyone is bi..

Neither have a smashing story arc - though Oglaf on occasion really is funny, admittedly. Then again, since you want comics whose main topic is specific sexual practices, that may not be what you want. Oh, and then there's flipside, but I don't like that much despite the attempts at story. It has a prominent lesbian couple though. for the T part, I only can think of Exiern, though, and that's not very good either.

If you want to go for the relationship side, try Mà3. It's got the least bad writing. However, many webcomics have gay characters as a side arc these days, so if you want story first, try one of those. The more focused on sex something becomes, the more the story degrades.

Oh and that pregnancy arc made me want to smack the author. I think the writer is female but if so she writes gay women like a straight man.

Awww, there go your stereotypes.

That made laugh and ew at the same time.

Oglaf.

I think Moon over June is funny. Not at all erotic, but I think the grotesquery and anti-eroticism of it all is central to the point. If you're looking for wank material, by all means look elsewhere -- the characters are physically unappealing. If you're looking for romance or drama look elsewhere as well -- the characters are even more emotionally unappealing. If you're going to get any enjoyment out of this comic (well, unless your tastes are VERY different from mine) it's going to be on the level of a comedy that uses and mocks the tropes of erotica.

I already enjoy Oglaf. I was more reacting to the picture cause it's true.

A really wonderful comic I don't see mentioned often in LGBT lists is the Less Than Epic Adventures of TJ and Amal. Beautiful art, two very compelling main characters, and so far, a very sweet sort of Journey story.


I am lazy so I will steal the description:

In the span of a single day, Amal calls off his arranged marriage, comes out to his conservative parents, promptly gets disowned, goes on a bender... and wakes up the next morning to find TJ, a lanky, dreadlocked vagrant, frying eggs and singing Paul Simon in his kitchen.

TJ claims that the two have made a drunken pact to drive all the way from Berkeley to Providence. As it happens, Amal promised his sister he'd be there for her graduation from Brown University. And TJ, well... TJ has his own reasons.

The agreement is simple: Amal does the driving; TJ pays the way - but a 3500 mile journey leaves plenty of time for things to get complicated.


Read it frompage 1! :)
