Summary of "Representations of same-sex relationships between female characters in all-ages comics: Princess Princess Ever After and Lumberjanes."

This essay examines the narrative constructions of same-sex relationships between female characters in two all-ages speculative fiction comics, Princess Princess Ever After by Katie O'Neill, and Lumberjanes, created by Shannon Watters, Grace Ellis, Noelle Stevenson, and Brooke Allen.
