What does an all-ages queer story look like? How do we make our mark in a genre that usuaully shys away from including queer characters? In what ways can queer kids hope to see themselves represented on the page? These are some of the questions that creators Barbara Perez Marquez (The Cardboard Kingdom, The Order of Belfry), Molly Knox Ostertag (Strong Female Protagonist, The Witch Boy), Chad Sell (The Cardboard Kingdom), Lilah Sturges (Jack of Fables, Lumberjanes: The Infernal Compass), and James Tynion IV (The Backstagers) have had to navigate when creating comics for the younger readers in our community. Paste Magazine’s Comics Editor Steve Foxe moderates a discussion about creating a new wave of all-ages queer stories and the challenges and opportunities that come with telling them.
