Hard to Swallow

by: Dave Davenport, Justin Hall, BiL Sherman, Steve MacIsaac, Drub, Brad Rader, Jon Macy, Victor Hodge, William O. Tyler, Julian Cardozo

Hard to Swallow Comics was launched with a simple premise: that erotic comics should be great stories as well as being sexy. The series ran from 2006 to 2009 and featured everything from werewolves and skater ghosts to pirates and porn stars. Now the whole series—plus a whole issue’s worth of new material—has been collected into one deluxe volume!

Justin Hall is a cartoonist and CCA Assistant Professor of Comics living in San Francisco with his husband and their pet python. Hall is the creator of the comic book series True Travel Tales, Hard To Swallow (with Dave Davenport), and Glamazonia. He is the editor of No Straight Lines: Four Decades of Queer Comics, a massive collection of LGBTQ comics published by Fantagraphics Books, which won a Lambda Literary Award and received an Eisner nomination, and is now being made into a feature-length documentary film. His comics have appeared in publications such as the Houghton Mifflin Best American Comics, The Best Erotic Comics, The Book of Boy Trouble, Juicy Mother, and the San Francisco Bay Guardian, and have earned him a Xeric Award and a Prism Queer Press Grant. Hall serves on the boards of the nonprofit organizations Prism Comics, an advocacy group for queer comics, and Siewphewyeung (Our Books), supporting Cambodian comics. He also helped create the Folsom Street Fair’s Artist Area, a venue for erotic artists. He had a solo Small Press Spotlight show at the San Francisco Cartoon Art Museum, and then curated No Straight Lines: Queer Culture and the Comics for them in 2006, which was the world’s first museum show devoted to LGBTQ cartooning. A compulsive traveler, Hall has spent a good deal of time hauling his backpack around the globe. He has visited over 60 countries, consuming everything from fried locusts to a cobra’s still-beating heart floating in a cup of Redbull. He has also worked as a massage therapist since 1995, and was trained in New Mexico, Chiang Mai (Thailand), and San Francisco. Hall speaks passable Spanish, rusty French, a smattering of Arabic, and gets away with a lot by smiling and nodding.

Jon Macy began his comics career with the series Tropo and Nefarismo, both part of the black-and-white alternative comics boom of the 1990s. He contributed to queer comics anthologies Meatmen, Gay Comics, QU33R and No Straight Lines, as well as gay erotic magazines such as Steam, Bunkhouse, and International Leatherman. His book Teleny and Camille, a graphic novel adaptation of the classic anonymous erotic novel attributed to Oscar Wilde and his circle of friends, won the 2010 Lambda Literary Award for Gay Erotica. He followed that up with Fearful Hunter, an erotic fantasy created as an act of protest against California’s Proposition 8, which won the 2010 Prism Comics Queer Press Grant. Most recently, he co-edited the anthology Alphabet, which is a finalist for the Lambda Literary Award for LGBTQ Anthology. He lives in the San Francisco Bay Area.
