There was an interesting discussion prompt in my Twitter feed today…
Comic books, graphic novels, web comics: what kind of non-prose SF&F works are you into? Do any of them have a particular LGBTQ+ focus? Share!https://t.co/Iqn1ZsCvAx#ComicBooks #SpecFic #discussion pic.twitter.com/khq3cQhlsd

And I thought, Jeesh, what kind of science fiction and fantasy comics and graphic novels am I into? Let me explain.
No, there is too much. Let me sum up–
I jump between novels, short stories, and a variety of graphic fiction through the day, almost every day. That’s my normal. Somehow, I stay too busy reading and thinking about writing to make decent lists.
However! I managed to steal more time than I’ll confess to for what should have been a relatively easy post. Below is a list of free SFF webcomics, which we all should be able to enjoy. (Then return here and thank me! My self esteem needs a boost.)
All of these stories are ongoing, meaning they are incomplete. You can follow along with the rest of us readers. Most also involve M/M romances… just because.
CW: All include some combination of explicit sexual content, violence, bloody wounds, swear words, and drug use.
- Fantasy: 👹
- Historical: 🗡️
- Paranormal: 👻
- Romance: 💕 (or Erotica: 💓)
- Science Fiction: 🚀

I gravitate toward paranormal, hard sci-fi, and romantica (romantic erotica) most days. But selecting from my scattered bookmarks and haphazard memory brings up brings up more diversity.
Are you a fan of sword-and-sorcery fantasy; softer and quieter sci-fi; and sweet, slow-burning romances? Then definitely check out the following webcomics.

The Prince and The Swan by April Pierce and Gareth CJ. Wee 👹💕
