Having explored lesbian storylines in multiple forms of both writing (novels, fan fiction) and filmmaking (movies, webseries), for the first time F4F Radio looks at another fusion of the written word and the visual arts - the webcomic. Comic strips have been a part of newspapers for decades, but the Internet gave creative minds with a knack for both writing and graphic design to reach an audience without muscling onto the funny pages. This was especially important for people interested in pursuing adult, risque storylines and hitherto taboo topics such as homosexuality, transgender, and sexual fetishes. To varying degrees, tonight's guest has explored all three. "Go Get a Roomie", the webcomic created by the artist Chloe, follows the adventures of Roomie, an irresistible lesbian free spirit without a home of her own, and Lillian, the surprisingly indifferent girl with a penchant for narcolepsy and VERY vivid dreams who eventually shares friendship and an apartment with her. Surrounded by an equally oddball supporting cast, GGAR has become increasingly popular since it started a few years ago. Chloe has also created a wide, varied gallery of fanart, from Xena/Gabrielle to Harley/Ivy to the Kim Possible/Shego graphic novel "Anything's Possible". And we're going to talk with Chloe about all of it. Joining us will be cohost Rae D. Magdon, who also cohosted last month's show on "Dragon Age".
