Renegade city fae, post-apocalyptic bicycle gangs, enormous robot guardians, and mysterious sewer-dwelling cryptids – all of this and much, much more in the second volume of BEYOND, the queer urban fantasy and post-apocalyptic comic anthology.
Featuring 25 stories by 36 contributors, the BEYOND ANTHOLOGY returns to continue celebrating unquestionably queer characters from across the spectrum of gender and sexuality, front and centre in their own stories; exploring back-alley fairy rings and secret magic markets, mixing magic and high-stakes adventures, and wandering the dusty, rust-ragged edges of society after the end of the world.

Notes on This Title
This comics anthology is a follow-up to the 2015 Beyond anthology.
2019 Lambda Award Finalist for LGBTQ Anthology
“Several years ago in this very column I talked about the then-upcoming queer comics anthology Beyond. Beyond was a collection of sci-fi and fantasy comics focused on queer characters and stories, without any of those tragic queer tropes we see so often in media. I was happy to support its initial opening for submissions, happy to support it on Kickstarter, and happy to read it and spread the word about how great it was once it was published.
Beyond Vol 2 features 350 pages of 27 new stories made by 39 different contributors and is edited by Sfé Monster and Taneka Stotts. While the first volume was more general science fiction and fantasy, this new volume focuses on stories that are about post-apocalypse and urban fantasy settings.” (Source: Autostraddle)
