Fangs by Sarah Andersen is a comic about Else and Jimmy falling in love and their lives as a couple. Else is a vampire and Jimmy is a werewolf. It is a lovely, most funny, and very quirky comic about misfits and lonely souls coming together.

Fangs to me was a delightful comic that looked at the nature of vampires and werewolves in the most fun manner ever. Andersen’s comics are not only funny but also looks at dating, love, and relationships in a very different manner. The gothic illustrations are super cheesy and point on, packed with all the clichés that I enjoyed a lot.

The graphics are fun, dark, clever, and full of wit. Fangs is a super sweet book about two monsters who are very different and so in love with each other.

This month started off with a great, short read, a one that warmed my heart big time (well, to put it that way). Princess Princess Ever After is a graphic fairy tale of two princesses saving each other, of them not needing any prince, of a prince who also needs saving, of empathy, and most of all to just be who you were always meant to.

Princess Princess Ever After is a very short graphic novel of love that transcends gender, and above all about what it feels like to come to your own. Amira isn’t here for heteronormativity and she’s learning how to be a hero. She is on the move to save people, riding her pink unicorn. Along the way she meets Sadie, a princess who needs to be saved from the abuse of her sister, and together they will find their way, along with an unlikely prince.

This in short is what this webcomic (now a book) is about. Princess Princess Ever After breaks all boundaries of storytelling, making us see other ways of being, living, and loving. Katie O’Neill breaks patriarchy one page after another. They do it with humour, fun, and lots of heart. Read this book this Pride. Read it anytime actually.
