Created by comic book retailer Aydin Kwan and self-described "library person" Le Button, the Queer Comics Database highlights dozens of comics (both web-based and print) that feature LGBTQIA characters. Originally created as a capstone project for the University of Washington's iSchool, the Queer Comics Database currently features 146 titles, including comics for children, young adults, and adults. Visitors can browse this database by creator or series and apply filters for audience (e.g., teen, middle grade, adult), genre (e.g., action, historical, superhero), and series type (e.g., free online, series, stand-alone). In addition, readers can filter by tone (including bleak, irreverent, and silly), by art style (including black and white, manga/manhua/manhwa, mixed media) and by queer representation. Each entry in the Queer Comics Database features a synopsis and available reviews, allowing readers (as well as educators and librarians) to find titles of interest with ease.
