Comics by/about us on the trans spectrum

Overview

When I started this list of trans spectrum comics, there where much fewer comics around then nowadays. Back in 2014 I was focusing on web comics, but now I will also share printed comics, that I read and loved. I collected comics about people from all over the trans spectrum: trans women, trans men, nonbinaries, genderqueer people and beyond.

Some of the comic artists write from their own perspective, some are cis people that centered their stories on people from the trans spectrum. I indicated the identities of the artists, please let me know about any errors you notice. Here you will find the collection of English comics and there is also a German collection.
