Strip Tease: 7 Queer Web Comics You Should Be Reading

Khaos Komix
Tab Kimpton

Set in the British suburbs, Khaos Komix follows a group of teenager friends coming to terms with their sexuality and gender expression. Every letter in the LGBT rainbow is represented through eight intertwined stories about Steve, Mark, Amber, Nay, Tom, Alex, Charlie and Jamie. And while some aspects are fantastic the characters’ experiences ring true, as evidenced by the fertile on-page discussion boards. There may be plenty of LGBT coming-of-age stories but Khaos stands out for acknowledging real-world prejudices while still delivering (mostly) happy endings.
