One thought on “2018 PRISM Award Nominations for the Best in LGBTQAI+ Comics

  1. OMG things I like – nominated for awards! Congrats to Tamara Go (“Can of Beans”) and Blue Delliquanti (“O Human Star”) who do excellent work; “O Human Star” is one of my faves. BTW both of those comics are SFal.

    Also, that’s cool -two of the judges (Gina Biggs & Sfé Monster) do/have done web comics I love, too.

    Time to check out all the other nominees to see if there’s anything else here I like. 😀 “Contact High” looks good from the artwork and SF story; I’m buying it. I’ve started reading “Superpose” online, though the artwork is a little too dark sometimes to read the text or tell what’s going on.
