The “Worth” series is about everything that is worth checking out: lesbian cartoons, series, movies, webpages. Weekly updates, look out for Sundays!

The Worth Series - Lesbian related hot lists

I’m sure it has happened to you as well when you were looking for something and you ended up getting something entirely different…and in a good way. Last year I wrote a tiny piece about the lesbian cartoon “Jane’s world” and yesterday I wanted to dwell on again this fantastic world and then the idea came up to look for more lesbian cartoons because there must be more out there, right?? So I went ahead and I searched for them and it got me quite a few hours to realise that the lesbian community has quite a few of them on comic pages.

After the cut I listed 10 lesbian comics that I found online and one bonus for all of you, probably you are familiar with it already :)

1. Jane’s world : “Jane’s World stars the loveable misfit, Jane Wyatt. It’s a comic full of “girl-on-girl action, chicks with guns, a vegan menace, vintage Winnebagos, drag queens and downward career spirals. You know, the usual-for stability-challenged Jane.”

2. Boobs Ahoy!: “Boobs Ahoy! is a comic for lesbians by lesbians (FLBL, if you will). Boobs Ahoy! centers mainly around two carefree lesbian pirates out to do nothing more than sleep with as many women as possible and have a good time. If only life were that easy though. Evading an affair with a married woman gone bad, Wilhelm falls onto The Pirate Ship Boob, of which, the Captain Clover commands. Being named Firstmate within minutes of meeting each other, they embark on a journey to find girls and beer. Little did they know, the treasure they would.”

3. Venus envy: “Venus Envy is a typical high school romantic comedy, with the welcome addition of lesbians, crossdressers, and of course transsexuals. The story follows Zoë, a teenage male-to-female transsexual, as she comes of age, tries to keep her secret, and tackles life’s challenges.”

4. Dykes to watch out for (DTWOF): I think I don’t have to introduce this comic strip!

“Since its inception in 1983, Alison Bechdel’s comic strip Dykes To Watch Out For has become a countercultural institution. The strip is syndicated in dozens of newspapers, translated into several languages and collected in a series of award-winning books. Utne magazine has listed DTWOF as “one of the greatest hits of the twentieth century.” And Comics Journal says, “Bechdel’s art distills the pleasures of Friends and The Nation; we recognize our world in it, with its sorrows and ironies.””
