Minneapolitan Robert Kirby has been drawing and publishing comics since 1990. His self-syndicated comic strip “Curbside” (1991-2008) was collected in two books: Curbside, published with the Xeric Grant in 1998, and Curbside Boys (2002, Cleis Press). His queerboy comics zine anthology Boy Trouble debuted in 1994 and there were two book collections from Green Candy Press: The Book of Boy Trouble (2006) and The Book of Boy Trouble Volume 2: Born to Trouble (2008). The first issue of Robert’s new all-color queer comics anthology THREE debuted in 2010 and was nominated for an Ignatz award for Outstanding Anthology or Collection. In 2011 Robert published a second issue and he was announced as the 2011 recipient of the Prism Queer Press Grant for THREE. The third issue was published to more acclaim in June 2012. All 3 issues of THREE were chosen for the SPX Collection at the Library of Congress. In January 2014, Rob’s series THREE mutated into QU33R, a big 33-person collection of all new, all color comics, published by Northwest Press. It won the 2014 Ignatz Award for Outstanding Anthology or Collection. Rob’s writing, interviews and reviews have appeared online for Maximum Rock N Roll, Panel Patter, and Rain Taxi, and continue regularly at The Comics Journal. He is currently a guest editor for the Illustrated PEN series. His latest books are published by Ninth Art Press: What’s Your Sign, Girl? Cartoonists Talk About Their Sun Signs (2015) and The Shirley Jackson Project: Comics Inspired By Her Life and Work (2016). Find out more at robkirbycomics.com.

Rick Worley is the creator of A Waste of Time, a series of autobiographical comics in which he discusses the important things in life, such as cocaine, sadomasochism, and love. He lives in San Francisco because he used to live in Riverside and, let's face it, Riverside is bullshit. He divides his time between complaining about his life and lounging around with his vast legions of sexually submissive twink boy fans. They feed him grapes.

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.

QU33R 2013
Overview

Winner of the 2014 Ignatz Award for Outstanding Anthology!

QU33R, from editor Rob Kirby, features 241 pages of new comics from 33 contributors—legends and new faces alike.

In 2012, Justin Hall edited a book called No Straight Lines: Four Decades of Queer Comics, that took readers on a journey from the beginnings of LGBT comics history to the present day. QU33R is an all-new project featuring queer comics legends as well as new talents that picks up where No Straight Lines left off. We’ve set down our history, now QU33R shines a light on our future!

QU33R had its genesis in an all-color queer comic zine called THREE, which featured three stories by three creators or teams per issue. Rob Kirby published three installments of THREE annually from 2010 to 2012, and the series did well, garnering not only an Ignatz nomination for Outstanding Anthology or Collection but also earning Rob the Prism Comics Queer Press Grant in 2011.

Producing the anthology was immensely gratifying, but featuring just three comics and publishing only once per year meant a lot of cartoonists weren’t getting the exposure they deserved. The publishing opportunities for queer cartoonists and queer subject matter are still limited, even today, and Rob longed for a wider distribution than he was able to manage on his own. He approached Northwest Press about doing a bigger compendium of all-new work.

While THREE was happening, Justin Hall was preparing his book No Straight Lines: Four Decades of Queer Comics, which Fantagraphics published in the summer of 2012. No Straight Lines traced the history of queer comics from their humble beginnings in the late 60’s/early 70’s all the way up to the present. The book was a whopping, award-winning success. Rob got to thinking that a follow-up volume—a sort-of-sequel focusing on all new work—would seal the deal, informing the world at large that we are still here, still queer, and still producing fresh and innovative work. He wanted to include not only several queer comics veterans, but also some fresh new faces and a few folks who haven’t necessarily belonged to the orthodox “queer comics scene” but have been doing non-heteronormative work all along.

QU33R features over 240 pages of new comics from a cross-generational lineup of award-winning LGBTQ cartoonists.

  1. 3 out of 5

    “Most are explicitly about being queer, about what alternate lifestyles might entail, but there are a few that are about more general experiences viewed through a queer lens… It also covers how one queer’s experiences might differ from other queer’s—and how similar the lives of queer and straight people can be, as life and love can be beautiful and hard no matter what your orientation or gender identity. Those points all on their own would make reading the work worthwhile, offering insight to queer and straight audiences alike.” Read Wolfen Moondaughter’s review on Sequential Tart

  2. QU33R is a superb example of comics celebrating determination and difference: sensitive, evocative, romantic and humorously engaging ‘people stories’ which any open-minded fan can’t help but adore. There’s not much fighting but plenty of punch, and in an ideal world this book would be readily available in every school and library for any confused kid in need of inspiration, comfort, understanding, encouragement and hope.” Read Win Wiacek’s review on Now Read This!

  3. “This is a substantial work, well-suited for the shelves of anyone interested in the topic. Even beyond the subject matter, the collection of cartooning styles displayed here is eye-opening.” Read Johanna Draper Carlson’s review on Comics Worth Reading

  4. 5 out of 5

    “Perhaps Howard Cruse’s reappropriated Dagwood Bumstead riff is an emblematic entry. There’s a certain aspirational nonchalance there to coming out as a young gay man, a matter-of-fact blurt-out from a closeted lesbian housewife. The people are just there, just living, and the future is wide-open, as indicated by so many of the inconclusive endings found in the entries. Kudos to Rob Kirby for the well-curated selections, along with achieving a rare narrative and aesthetic cohesion of all the themes and styles. Grade A-.” Read Justin Giampaoli’s review on Thirteen Minutes

  5. 4 out of 5

    QU33R is the sort of comics anthology that we need more of. Kirby’s assembled a great deal of unique comics voices for this book, and the end result is a real joy to read. This isn’t just a book of good LGBT comics, it’s a book of good comics, period. QU33R is well worth your time and money.” Read Greg McElhatton’s review on Comic Book Resources

  6. “Memory and melancholy both show up in spades in QU33R, a smart survey of queer comics from the growing Seattle press. The tendency here is towards a certain degree of autobiography, calling back to the heyday of highly personal art comics of the ’80s and ’90s.” Read David Berry’s review in the National Post

  7. “All in all a superb collection, one I want on every graphic novel e-reader, and, as a librarian, in every library, personal and public, including my own.” Read Cathy Camper’s review on Lambda Literary

  8. “Damn, now that’s how you put together a fantastic anthology.” Read the review on Optical Sloth

  9. 4 out of 5

    “If you have ever asked yourself something along the lines of ‘what do LGBTQ comics in America look like?’ you’ll definitely want to pick up QU33R.” Read Erica Friedman’s review on Okazu

  10. “This full-color collection by queer publisher Northwest Press covers the entire spectrum of the rainbow, young love, old love, no love – drama in the past and present, and through all the rainbow’s angstroms of gender, sex, race and class, happiness and despair. These stories will bear you along on a fresh tide of QU33R life heading into your future.” Read E.B. Boatner’s capsule review in Lavender Magazine

  11. “ In the case of QU33R, an anthology edited by Robert Kirby, all I can say are positive things. Why? Because the individual stories are quite strong and Kirby’s editing makes for a whole greater than the sum of its parts. Kirby has been editing anthologies for a while, and it’s quite clear to me that he’s very skilled at it. QU33R however, is a big leap forward for him for several reasons. First, visually it’s quite arresting and clever, for instance using a rainbow header that spans the book. The feel of the book is nice and the jacket is colorfully covered with individual faces exploring multiple identities. Second and more importantly though, Kirby has an editing style that does not stifle individual artists from exploring their visions, but one that allows for their pieces to complement each other.” Read the whole review on Whit Taylor’s Comics

  12. “Contributors include such well-known gay comics artists as Eric Orner and Justin Hall, as well as a lot of newcomers unknown, at least to Out There. Territory covered runs the gamut, from the expected—coming-out tales, melodramatic love affairs—to the unexpected.” Read Roberto Friedman’s whole review in Out There in the Bay Area Reporter

  13. “Overall, this is an excellently curated and designed collection of cartooning that will sit happily alongside the Best American Comics series and Ivan Brunetti’s Graphic Fiction volumes.” Read Tom Murphy’s whole review on Broken Frontier

  14. QU33R is a significant comics anthology collecting the work of 33 cartoonists exploring queer themes that was recently published by Northwest Press. What you find here is a wide variety of styles and insights.” Read Harry Chamberlain’s whole review on Comics Grinder

  15. “The conceit of Three is that Kirby gets three great comic creators to contribute stories to each volume. At times he went a little crazy and put more than three creators in, but that is what one calls creative liberties. This follows his history of anthologizing and contributing, like his early Strange Looking Exile and Boy Trouble, the latter with David Kelly. Now, however, Kirby has gone completely crazy, cramming 33 creators into his newest book, QU33R, out now on Northwest Press, the home of everything gay in comicdom.” Read Anthony Glassman’s whole review in the Gay People’s Chronicle

  16. QU33R unquestionably succeeds as a wide-ranging survey of queer cartoonists at this point in time.” Read Rob Clough’s whole review in the The Comics Journal
