LGBT-friendly material

Out in time for Valentine’s Day is a “Backstagers” special comic. The series is about the stagehand staff at an all-boys’ high school’s drama club, and the strange supernatural events going on backstage. A few of the characters also enter into a relationship with each other.

“Goldie Vance” releases a fourth volume in April. The series focuses on the Nancy Drew-esque adventures of a teenage amateur sleuth in a more idealized version of early 1960s Florida. The plot of this volume centers around a music festival in town.

Also available on Valentine’s Day is “Bingo Love,” a graphic novel by writer Tee Franklin and artist Jenn St-Ogne. The graphic novel is about two African-American women who fell in love as teens in the early 1960s, and reunite decades later.

“Bingo Love” has a website, as well as a successful Kickstarter campaign that was promoted on Twitter. St-Ogne was also the main artist for “Jem and the Holograms” spin-off comic “The Misfits.”
