Archie Bongiovanni is creating Genderqueer Comics

patrons
I am a queer and genderqueer cartoonists and zine-kid. My most recent book A Quick And Easy Guide To They/Them Pronouns was released in 2018 and has been praised by Teen Vogue, School Library Journal, Pride.com and was one of Powell’s books of the month and has sold over 12,000 copies. I’ve been drawing monthly comics for I currently draw comics for Autostraddle.com (a queer feminist website) for the past five years. My next graphic novel, Grease Bats, will be out with Boom! Studios fall 2019! I AM PUMPED! You can find my comics online, in anthologies, and self-published mini-comics and zines.

My vision for my work is solid–I create art and stories that are enjoyable, approachable and, most importantly, gay and good.

You also get to see a ton of my illustrative work too!

By supporting me, you're not just giving me more time to create and draw, but also allowing me to continue to experiment and evolve my comic style. You are helping me to publish my work and keep it accessible and cheap, most of my comics are five dollars or less. I want to be creating beautiful and thoughtful work, but also want it available for anyone who wants it, whether that be free online or spending a few dollars on a physical copy. You are also helping to support a queer artist and activist. 

My artistic goal for my next graphic novel is to create a fictional story about four mid-life queers-Sunday Brunch. This will be unlike any of my previously published worked. A Quick And Easy Guide To They/Them Pronouns is an educational non-fiction comic. Grease Bats is a collection of serialized comics centering around a queer group of twenty-somethings navigating friendships, romances and roommates within their community. There’s very little representation of mid-life queers. I want my artistic career to age with me.

I want to create queer stories for a life-span.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT!
