Starflowers grow on small, vibrant suns.
Slowly, sleepily, their stems extend from the sun,
and from the tip a sleeping starflower grows, fed by its mother's heat, the heat of the sun.
When a starflower grows large enough, its stem releases it.
Floating, floating. it wakes in deep space surrounded/cradled by infinite possibility in every direction.
The Cute Little Fuckers comic is a queer sci fi comic collaboration between writer Step Tranovich (Oakland, USA) and illustrator Ruby Ya-wen LI (Taipei, Taiwan), with additional creative input from many members of their community.
They aim to create something that is both a playful story and a community resource in one; a place to share personal experiences and learnings in a light-hearted way, through the lens of silly space monsters! And maybe even tell a unique story of its own.
This is a queer comic, a transgender comic, a polyamory comic, an intersex comic, a sex-positive comic, a nonbinary comic, a genderqueer comic, a gender-fluid comic, a comic that strives for radical inclusion, an act of activism that is imperfect and still potent, a story filled with monsters and planets and communities and science fiction, and potentially much more. :)
