Lesbian Webcomics

Updated on July 13, 2013

A list of free online webcomics written by and about lesbians

There are a lot of webcomics out there which include gay cast members. GLBT themes tend to be handled a lot more sympathetically and believably, and are covered a lot more often (no publishers to fight) online. Some that focus on lesbians as the main characters are linked below. They're a mixture of beautiful to borderline r-rated, shades of manga-ish and cartoonish to artistic and realistic (Blue is especially lovely, art-wise), humorous (Mundane Nirvana is brilliant, even if it leaves you hanging) to serious. A lot of them are short, a few are abandoned (but still worth reading) and some are long-running 'professional' webcomics.

The best known is probably Yu Me and I Was Kidnapped by Lesbian Pirates From Outer Space, both by Megan Rose Gedris (check out her LPFOS spin-off novella Crazy For Her and her Guide to Writing Gay Characters) but there are a fair few more.

As the webcomics are all free, I really strongly suggest you check them out - and if you like the look of any, please consider buying the books, as most of these artists had to self-publish and work their fingers off, every step of the way.

If you're interested in buying a copy and supporting one of these artists (most webcomics are published by people trying to do it for themselves, usually still in school or university, and it's a huge leap to make it into print!) then I've listed the first books in each published series. If you're looking for manga and graphic novels, then check out the Yuri Manga and Lesbian Graphic Novels pages!

Please consider buying some of these books, as you will be supporting self-publishing semi-starving lesbian and queer-friendly artists.

      @anonymous: Ha, yeah. I feel like they just went 'oh let's do a genderswap comic' and then realised too late that if it's the entire comic, it's not just silly comic genderswap, it's plunging right into real trans issues. I mean, there IS a difference between 'person who was X is suddenly outwardly Y' and 'person is X inside, but is outwardly Y', at least in the adjustment phase. But once the initial shock is over, it gets into very grey territory (especially the 'live as they are now or try to change [back]' issue).

      Appreciate the list!

      (and re: misfile... no, it really doesn't. and frankly the [male, surprise surprise] author has handled gender stuff really badly and skeevily. I mean really, writing a character who's '~a man trapped in a woman's body~' and then trying to distance himself from actual trans people's take on it? Not to say that all male authors are bad, far from it.)
