Smbitten Gorgeous Webcomic

Melanie Gillman, as part of her mini-thesis work at The Center for Cartoon Studies, is creating “a 60-70 page, all colored pencil, hand-stitched minicomic novella, about a certain mythical creature and a certain minority sexuality that I’ve been dropping hints about for the past several weeks.” (Hint: The comic’s tag is “lesbian vampires”.) It’s called Smbitten, and I’m blown away by the gorgeous coloring, as well as the fun historical setting and the joy of her characters when they dance.
