Jesus Loves Lesbians Too webcomic

Contributions Reader Find

By Lacy Telles in Cool Websites on Tuesday 1 November 2011

I’m loving this webcomic that I just discovered. Jesus Loves Lesbians Too chronicles the tales of Maria Burnham and her foray into lesbianhood, her struggles with her conservative Christian parents, her gay sister Diana, and her own love of Jesus. It also brings up the more ‘sensitive’ subjects like two headed personal pleasure items and other such things. Touching, sweet, and often hilarious, this memoir (published bi-monthly) is a great addition to my bookmarked sites.

Ryan Riss

Gerry Mak Reader Find

By Gerry Mak in New Art on Thursday 10 December 2009

Ryan Riss, aka Craptical, is firmly rooted in the grotesque school of pop art, drawing heavily from horror comics, drug culture imagery, and the work of Ed ‘Big Daddy’ Roth. Beneath the irreverence and sophomoric imagery, however, is contrastingly well-controlled line work and a mature sense of design and composition.
