No Straight Lines: Four Decades of Queer Comics, includes work by Alison Bechdel, Paige Braddock, Jennifer Camper, Diane DiMassa, Kris Dresen, Leslie Ewing, Joyce Farmer, Ellen Forney, Isabel Franc, Leanne Franson, Roberta Gregory, Michelle Grubin, Joan Hilty, Gina Kamentsky, Lee Marrs, Susanna Martín, Carrie McNinch, Erika Moen, Annie Murphy, MariNaomi, Andrea Natalie, Trina Robbins, Roxxie, Joey Alison Sayers, Ariel Schrag, Christine Smith, and Mary Wings

Queer cartooning encompasses some of the best and most interesting comics of the last four decades, with creators tackling complex issues of identity and a changing society with intelligence, humor, and imagination. This book celebrates this vibrant artistic underground by gathering together a collection of excellent stories that can be enjoyed by all.
No Straight Lines showcases major names such as Alison Bechdel (whose book Fun Home was named Time Magazine’s 2006 Book of the Year), Howard Cruse (whose groundbreaking Stuck Rubber Baby is now back in print), and Ralf Koenig (one of Europe’s most popular cartoonists), as well as high-profile, cross-over creators who have dabbled in LGBT cartooning, like legendary NYC artist David Wojnarowicz and media darling and advice columnist Dan Savage. No Straight Lines also spotlights many talented creators who never made it out of the queer comics ghetto, but produced amazing work that deserves wider attention.
Until recently, queer cartooning existed in a parallel universe to the rest of comics, appearing only in gay newspapers and gay bookstores and not in comic book stores, mainstream bookstores or newspapers. The insular nature of the world of queer cartooning, however, created a fascinating artistic scene. LGBT comics have been an uncensored, internal conversation within the queer community, and thus provide a unique window into the hopes, fears, and fantasies of queer people for the last four decades.
These comics have forged their aesthetics from the influences of underground comix, gay erotic art, punk zines, and the biting commentaries of drag queens, bull dykes, and other marginalized queers. They have analyzed their own communities, and their relationship with the broader society. They are smart, funny, and profound. No Straight Lines will be heralded by people interested in comics history, and people invested in LGBT culture will embrace it as a unique and invaluable collection.

Paige Braddock is a cartoonist best known for her comic strip Jane’s World, the first queer-themed work to get distribution from a national mainstream media syndicate.

In high school, Braddock was mentored by Alley Oop cartoonist Dave Graue. She earned a degree in Fine Art from the University of Tennessee, then worked as a visual journalist for twelve years for such newspapers as the Chicago Tribune and the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. She left journalism in 2000 to accept the postion of Creative Director at Charles M. Schulz Creative Associates. There she oversees art direction and editoral control of all licensed Peanuts material, including the 2012 comic book limited series published by Boom! Studios.

She devised Jane’s World in 1991 and first started the strip as a webcomic in 1996. In 2001, United Feature Syndicates’s Comics.com picked up the strip. Soon after, she founded Girl Twirl Comics to publish and distribute Jane’s World to comic book stores. In 2007, Braddock started producing new strips, now carried by Universal Press Syndicate.

In 2008, she collaborated with writer Jason McNamera on The Martian Confederacy, a graphic novel about outlaws living on Mars in 3535, where breathable air is a top commodity. A second volume was published in 2011, and a third is in the works.

Jane’s World was nominated for an Eisner Award in 2006, and 10 volumes of the strip are currently in print.

Braddock lives in California with her wife, Evelyn.

Interview Round-Up!

I decided about two weeks ago to post all interviews in one round-up post a week rather than individual links or quotes— and then I got too busy to remember to do it.  But here it is at last!

There are heroes who sit there and calculate a plan. You probably have friends who do it, people who make lists and figure out what their move is going to be and wrestle over the ethics and morals of stuff and have ten-year plans and twenty-year plans. He doesn’t have any of that. Whenever I am wondering what he’d do in a scene, he’s an arrow: he shoots from the hip. He just is constantly trusting his inner compass. Sometimes there will be misfires, but at least he fires. I don’t see him ever having a story where he’s thought fifty steps ahead like a chess player.

Geek: What’s next for you?

RY: Well, I’m working on a new book about a space cop superhero. It’s basically a funny, light take of comics like Green Lantern or the Nova Corps. Also, I’m finishing up finals and have to study for a Bio test next week. For dinner, I’m going to have chicken and rice. Too bad there are no more ice cream sandwiches…

The characters are in their early twenties, a time when you start out taking yourself so damn seriously, you think you understand the world, and there are a dozen different choices to make while growing up. The parallel journeys of Dee and Bunny Boy involve different methods of figuring yourself out, be it hack-and-slash throwing yourself at parties and love, or delicate and internal self-discovery. If you connect back to the center, you tend to find that person you were as a kid, all your childhood interests and weirdness, was just hanging out underneath all the other emotions. And then you need to re-embrace them again. Running from them gets you nowhere!…

The most unhappy people I know are people who won’t spend time to get lost in their passion, or people who are trying to hard to make something happen that isn’t genuine.

And of course, the interview that everyone should read:

Women make 80% of the retail purchases in America. EIGHTY PERCENT. And that means that more often than not, if a kid is shopping, it’s with mom. So if the comic industry wants to have a future and hook readers young, they need to target both women and children. If a woman is reading comics, she’ll be more likely to let her kid read comics. And if a kid is raised in a house where one or both parents read comics, I think we all already know that he or she will be more likely to read comics. Kids who never know comics exist are going to have a hard time finding them when they’re at an age that most superhero comics are geared towards. And even better in all of this is the fact that if mom reads comics, she’ll have no problem with her daughters reading comics, which increases the future female readership of comics as well as just the future male readership of comics. There’s no loss here for the comics industry. It just takes foresight.

AfterEllen.com recently interviewed Paige Braddock about her strip, Jane’s World, which has been running for 10 years, as well as her Peanuts work with the Schulz estate (including the new comic book coming out from Kaboom!)
She also discusses the state of the comics industry as a whole, and the future of diversity in the field:

AE: What about the comic industry itself? Do you see it getting even more open over the next decade? Do gender and sexual orientation still matter?
PB: Ten years ago, I didn’t think it was important to let gender and sexual orientation show, but now I wish I’d been braver. I think it’s important for people to see lesbians of all kinds represented in every medium. So, my answer now is different than it would’ve been 10 years ago. It’s important to embody who you are, whether you’re writing gay stories or not. But the best thing that can happen to me is if a kid in Idaho says, “I read your comic online and I feel less alone.” That’s better than any paycheck.
I got an email once from a mother whose daughter had come out and she was really upset. But then she started reading Jane’s World and said she was much less worried about her. That’s the kind of thing I love.
