Strip Tease: 7 Queer Web Comics You Should Be Reading

 

The Less than Epic Adventures of TJ and Amal
E.K. Weaver

If you’ve been looking for something to fill the gay road-trip shaped hole in your heart, this is it: Amal, who is out to everybody except his conservative family, finally comes out when his folks push him to marry his childhood sweetheart.

But rather than face the fallout, he splits—taking a leave of absence from medical school and heading to Providence to see his younger sister graduate from college. After a night of black-out drinking he wakes up to find a tall, blonde and dreadlocked TJ making him breakfast and offering to fund his excursion. From there, the pair explore the country and each others’ lives on the road to Rhode Island.
