"Circling back to the Ladydrawers, my top selection from CAKE is a comic by Finnish creator Hanna-Pirita Lehkonen, translated into English as Short Gay Stories. It's an essential queer comic that traces their journey of being nonbinary and demisexual. With grace and humor, Lehkonen's story is told through seemingly unrelated superhero, fantasy, and genre vignettes. One after another, they lovingly illustrate (and color) some of the finest comics work I've seen in a long time."
"Cow House Press’ first book is full of stories and individual illustrations that cover a variety of tones – Rivven Prink contributed well-inked, ominous moths, whereas A. Cris Valles and Daimon Hampton contributed pieces that are respectively joyful and delightfully angsty – that show off their horror chops, but also hint at the range of which they are capable."
