LGBTQ* Comic Artists You May Be Interested In
Erika Moen - artist/writer
Some of Erika’s illustrations/dialogue is NSFW. Please be advised. Also, some of Tumblr has been really harsh about Erika’s marriage to a cisman and her views of queer politics. If you would like to hear some responses to Erika’s work within the comic industry and her feelings about sexuality as it evolves, I highly recommend watching her visit to Yale video below.
Some of Erika’s Work:

The Cover That Never Was
The above graphic was intended to be the cover of the New Yorker in 2009. However, R. Crumb’s design was rejected by the magazine without explanation or further discussion. If you’d like to read a little more about this story, read Nadja Sayej’s article. (Warning, article’s use of nouns/adjectives may cause some triggers.)
