My article looking at the queer comics of 2014 (and ahead to 2015) - in books & zines from major publishers, micro-presses and self-publishers - is up on The Comics Journal today. 

Read Rob Kirby’s great article for TCJ rounding up 2014’s avalanche of queer comics! Kirby highlights some of my own favorite comics of the year, including 100 Crushes by Elisha Lim, Megahex by Simon Hanselmann, The Collected Hungry Bottom Comics by Eric Kostiuk Williams, Cruising Diaries by Brontez Purnell and Janelle Hessig, Snackies by Nicholas Sumida, Fearful Hunter by Jon Macy, Hazel Newlevant's If This Be Sin, Tony Breed's Everyone is Someone’s Fetish, and Diane Obomsawin’s On Loving Women. And there are plenty of more comics on the list I am eager to check out!

The first review of Massive: Gay Erotic Manga and the Men Who Make It is in! IndieWire’s Charles Solomon wrote a thoughtful, well-researched piece about the book here.

[…] Yaoi manga and anime have become increasingly popular in the US, and there are even yaoi cons.

The manga gay men in Japan read offer very different depictions of body types, sex, romance and friendship. That work is little known in America, and the new anthology Massive helps to fill a gap in Americans’ understanding of the vital, complex culture of manga.

The book also receives a nice shout-out in Joe McCulloch’s column on The Comics Journal, where he deems Massive "the premiere manga release this week.“ 

Pre-orders are shipping soon!! :)
