Hey, I'm Niki Smith, and I draw all sorts of LGBT+ comics! I've had work published on The Nib and Oh Joy Sex Toy, and have been a part of great anthologies like Smut Peddler, Beyond and Filthy Figments. I'm hard at work on my third graphic novel, and Patreon backers will get a behind-the-scenes glimpse into my process.

My Books

The Deep & Dark Blue comes out in January 2020 from Little Brown Young Readers! It's a fantasy adventure for 8-12 year olds.

After a terrible political coup usurps their noble house, Hawke and Grayson flee to stay alive and assume new identities, Hanna and Grayce. Desperation and chance lead them to the Communion of Blue, an order of magical women who spin the threads of reality to their will.

As the twins learn more about the Communion and themselves, they begin to hatch a plan to avenge their family and retake their royal home. While Hawke wants to return to his old life, Grayce struggles to keep the threads of her new life from unraveling, and realizes she wants to stay in the one place that will allow her to finally live as a girl.

 Crossplay came out in 2018 from Iron Circus Comics. It's my love letter to all things fandom.

Home from college for the summer, a group of friends reunite for a whirlwind weekend together at their favorite con… Crossplay is about discovering your sexuality and gender identity through fandom and cosplay; using what you love to figure out who you are, and what will make you happy. And when you share a passion, feelings begin to stir…

I'm dedicated to drawing queer and diverse comics, and telling stories I love. If you're a fan of my work, please consider helping support its creation!
