Recommendation Spotlight: Galanthus

(All links and rec posts)

I found this great comic, a sci-fi story of hope and found family and queer love in the shadows of galaxy-spanning politics and schemes. Yes, it’s Galanthus, a lovingly-rendered, thoroughly charming saga from Ashanti Fortson which I just finished rereading.

Galanthus page.pngThe style has a very cohesive feeling of a bizarre world made cozy and loving by its characters, and the story spans grand galactic intrigue while keeping a tight focus on a tight-knit group of rogues. It’s been dropping hints and introducing concepts that I’m really excited to see bloom, and there’s so much great stuff already (baker crime boss! alien takeout!) in between all the poignant, emotional moments.

If you want some loving, gorgeously-rendered space fantasy, check it out.
