Beyond: the Queer Sci-Fi & Fantasy Comic Anthology: 03/21/19
Beyond: the Queer Sci-Fi & Fantasy Comic Anthology edited by Sfé R. Monster was kickstarted in late 2014 and published in 2015. It is a collection of queer fantasy and science fiction comics.
The stories range from post war families, robots or clones working on distant starships, urban fantasy and so forth. The range in art and lettering skills varies, and unfortunately not all of them were easy for me to read without using a magnifying glass (along with my prescription glasses).
My favorite of the set is a story of a married couple and their adopted child. After bedtime, the child is kidnapped by changelings who live at the end of the street. They go heroically after her to bring her home.
In a twist that would fit comfortably in Troll Hunters, the parents end up rescuing their child and then decide to offer a home to the changelings. Rather than them taking other children to replace them, they are given unconditionally a safe, loving place to stay.
Later a second volume was also kickstartered and I have it on my TBR to read soon.
