What a fantastic collection of short stories! I adore positive queer rep in books, especially happy queer rep written by queer authors, so I jumped at the chance to read this anthology and I adored every moment of it. There are so many talented creators involved in the making of Shout Out, and so many lovable stories within it. I won't go into detail of every single story, but I would like to name off my favorites:

In the introductory story, a garden spirit receives an

Full Review on The Candid Cover

Shout Out is an anthology unlike any other that I have read before. This graphic novel is diverse and full of interesting stories. If you are a fan of the genre, this is one book to check out!

I haven’t read that many graphic novels, but this book is something that really piqued my interest when I first heard about it. The concept is so fantastic and the amount of thought that has gone into its design is absolutely phenomenal. There is something for everyone to

I was very impressed by this collection of LGBTQ genre stories. Some standouts include one in which a teenage boy summons a demon to help him decide if he is gay; one of a Viking being reunited with his lover in Valhalla after a heroic death; one about an asexual and aromantic necromancer; one about rival food delivery service people (so much more at stake when you are racing against your ex); one about a nonbinary dentist to magical creatures who befriends a werewolf; and one about queer ...more

Oftentimes with anthologies, you never know what you’re going to get – a mix of creators means a mix of quality, right? Not so withShout Out. Not only is there plenty of representation from all over the sex and gender spectrums, they’regood stories that show various cultures, time periods, alternate universes, fantasy worlds, relationship types and situations. These are stories young queer people can read and see themselves reflected in. Shout Out strives to inspire and bring hope and enjoyment ...more
I almost enjoyed the author bios as much as the stories themselves, because such a wonderfully interesting and diverse mix of humans brought this anthology into existence. SUCH a great selection of stories, most are very very short and come across as just punchy, bright queer little moments. It's a bit cutesy but I loved that, personally. A couple stories were misses for me but it was almost a sweep. Really great!

My heart is full.

*Puts on announcer voice* Are you looking for happy and incredibly diverse Own Voices stories in many worlds of fantasy that make you want to cry with joy? Read. This. Book.

*clears throat* No really. I mean it. I will be shoving this anthology of LGBTQIA+ comics on every person I know, and maybe some strangers as well, just for good measure. The diversity and representation in here is absolutely off the charts, and it's published in Toronto. Yep, I'm officially beside myself.

What a fantastic series of shorts by some great writers and great artists! So much positivity!

This comic anthology is all of my jam. The comics are short, romantic and penned by some great writers and inked by just as great illustrators. They're like perfectly-sized bits of fluff. Highly recommend.

A really wonderful collection of short comics centered on LGBTQIA+ characters by queer creators. All genres and styles of relationships are depicted equally and without judgment.

What an amazing and well-curated collection of shorts!

Beautiful, colourful, joyful, and diverse stories. A great anthology. The artwork was gorgeous - especially the colouring. The stories were fun and diverse, both in their subject matter and in their character makeup. Like any anthology some stories were stronger than others, but I overall really enjoyed this and want more people to read it.

I am not going to lie, I originally picked up this book because the cover was colorful and visually appealing. I am very glad that I did pick up this collection of short stories though because it was full of so many beautiful stories of queer representation. There were tear jerkers, fantastic adventures, invigorating battles, and so much more.
