COVER - Romeo X Julien


Romeo Montague has always been a little awkward. His cousin, Benny, doesn’t help, often tossing him into situations unprepared; like dragging him to a Renaissance Faire in the middle of Wine Country.

Julien Capulet, a respected festival promoter, has his own quirks. While dealing with his crazy parents and goofy gay uncles, he holds out hope of meeting the one who’ll see past all the frills.

Romeo X Julien is a sexy homage to Will Shakespeare, with more comedy than tragedy. Entertaining and tender, it shows how the course of true love may never be smooth, and that the LGBTQ community has come a long way in a short time.

What madness lies in this alternative reality!

Journey To GaytopiaJourney To Gaytopia by Joel Craig

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This one’s different! A humorous alternative reality graphic novel in which our two heroes have to wrangle with the evil twin sister of the glamourous actress Fay Dunnaway who’s kidnapped pop goddess Madonna!

It was a pleasant change to read an LGBTQ+ focused graphic novel, it’s a genre where the community is sadly under represented and this one was a funny and outrageous journey through a fantasy world which closely resembled our own but with enough “left of centre” happenings to make it clear it wasn’t life as we know it.

There’s lots of snark and as for whether our two erstwhile heroes manage to rescue Madonna from mad Mae, you’ll have to buy it and see!
