Megan Rose Gedris: Lesbian Comic Artist Extraordinaire!

Note: If you entered my contest and your name isn't Darcy or Joe, please leave a comment in this post... because that means your submission went to my junk mail folder.

Somehow I was lucky enough to stumble across two incredible, on-going web comics created by the fabulous Megan Rose Gedris: I Was Kidnapped By Lesbian Pirates from Outer Space! and Yu+Me Dream.

I Was Kidnapped By Lesbian Pirates from Outer Space! is easily the more accesible of the two. It's farcicle quality makes it easy to fall into the story even if you don't begin from the beginning, when mild-mannered secretary Susan is kidnapped by, you guessed it, lesbian pirates... from outer space, who mistake her for their long-long princess.
Megan is eventually outed by the sassy space captian and joins her crew of lezzie lushes in their adventures which include, robbing a bank for shoe money!
Read all the silliness for yourself ova here.

When Megan calls Yu + Me Dream "surreal" she was so not kidding! This is a story line she's planned for SIX YEARS about teenager Fiona Thompson who is hated by most everyone in her life and lives most happily in her dreams. This beginning bit is really emo, but the story gets more complex, interesting and astonishing and less whiny as it goes along. And the ever-changing art styles are really interesting. When Fiona meets the new girl at school, Lia and together the girls realize their mutual attraction and their relationship grows until Fiona wakes up and discovers she was in a self-induced coma.
Crushed by her loss, Fiona's conscionce (a sassy black fairy-winged figure) helps Fiona to crash into dreamworld to find her long-lost love.
How could you not love this story!? Follow the continuing adventures here.
