+Flip Knox was kind enough to give me an advanced digital copy of his new comicTrans*Planetarium. This book begins to explore the gut-wrenchingly painful life state of a young transsexual woman named Alice, who we meet her at what may well be the end of that life.
While the title is a bit rough around the edges and from a young indie team, it shows a great promise and steers clear of a lot of tropes such as magical fix-alls and happy endings that it easily could have gone for with such an ambitious launch concept; building a compelling emotional narrative in just a few pages with succulent coulors and dreamy imagery. I highly recommend it, not just for people with different sexualities, but for anyone who's different on the inside in a world that demands lockstep conformity in values and appearances.
