New Zine – Coming Out Autistic

I have a new 44 page colour comic book zine called Coming Out Autistic.
It is available here and more info is below-
Coming Out Autistic is a queer comic book zine that features interviews with a variety of LGBTQ+ people. Each person is autistic and this comic tells their coming out stories. The stories are not how they come out as queer, but how they come out as autistic. Parallels with common ‘coming out as gay’ stories are drawn and differences are also highlighted. The zine includes interviews, illustrations and comic book pages.

New Zine – Interview ABC

Interview ABC is a 32 comic book zine that looks at mental health from an experimental and investigative perspective.

Interview ABC can be bought from here

It follows an unnamed character who starts work at a radio station. He finds some old cassettes tapes that feature a series of interviews. The character listens to the tapes and realizes he is hearing interviews from an abandoned radio documentary on mental health. The character draws parallels with their own life and looks to learn from the tapes and express selfcare. The story draws on my own experiences with mental health

Interview ABC uses evocative imagery and powerful language to tell a personal and exciting story.
The comic is A5 in size and in full colour.
