Goth-Friendly ComicsSeptember 15, 2014Saskia C.
I have picked this topic not because I know much about comics and graphic novels (to be frank, the opposite is true) but mostly due to my experience with the immensity that is geek culture. Being a goth, a geek and a dozen other things, it's not always easy to find the perfect crossover between my interests. This post is to help my fellow geek goths to find comic books and graphic novels that they might like.
The Oh my Goth! series is one of my personal favourites. It's extremely funny in its satire of teenage goths as well as its depictions of demons, aliens and vampires. As if it wasn't hilarious enough already, goth clichés are mocked all through the book (think silly nicknames, vampire goths, Bela Lugosi, etc). The plot is not extremely inventive or deep, but the humour is simply fantastic and the drawings are quite stylised and nice to look at.
