For the first time, the entire spectrum of four-plus decades of queer cartooning is collected under one cover.
Featuring groundbreaking crossover successes like Alison Bechdel, Howard Cruse, Eleen Forney, Dan Savage and David WOnjnarowicz. Additionally, international superstars like Ralf König and Nazario and dozens of other cartoonists who have rarely been read outside the greater queer community. Editor Justin Hall has assembled an invaluable piece of comics history and LGBTQ culture.
These comics have forged their aesthetics from the influences of underground comix, gay erotic art, punk zines, and the biting commentaries of drag queens, bull dykes, and other marginalized queers. They have analyzed their own communities, and their relationship with the broader society. They are smart, funny, and profound. No Straight Lines will be heralded by people interested in comics history, and people invested in LGBT culture will embrace it as a unique and invaluable collection.

The Best of Ten Years of Trans Male Culture
A dynamic celebration of trans male culture, this essential collection makes visible a decade of FTM and transmasculine experiences.
Independently published from 2009 to 2019, Original Plumbing grew from a Bay Area zine to a nationally acclaimed print quarterly dedicated to trans men.

In celebration of the magazine’s ten-year run, this essential collection compiles the best of all twenty issues. Selections are reprinted in full color, with an introduction by activist Tiq Milan and a new preface by the founding editors.
