And extremely gay. Extremely, desperately gay. It's perfect. Read it.

I like it! I don't see myself reading a PDF, but this is going on my book list to track down someday. I hope there's additional print copies for sale outside of backers, but maybe not?

Kylie: is this a better or worse motorcycle lesbian comic book than Motor Crush asking for a friend

I actually haven't read Motor Crush but clearly, now I need to.

I will say that if what you want out of a motorcycle lesbian comic is Actual Motorcycles then Roadqueen is not going to satisfy you.

If you are like me and what you want is 230 surprisingly heartfelt and sweet pages mercilessly dunking on the sort of useless lesbian that spends $8000 on a motorcycle and $.80 on dinner with her girlfriend, then Roadqueen is ABSOLUTELY for you.

Good news about this one by the way, it got picked up by Seven Fucking Seas (naturally) for print and digital editions.

Can we just change the title of the manga thread to "Seven Seas is good at their job" at this point?
