Tankea Stotts is a queer little tumbleweed that has found herself back in the home embrace of the desert known as Los Angeles. After spending quite a few years as a spoken word artist, Taneka’s focus shifted to comics, a medium full of collaboration and imagination. Taneka writes the webcomics “Full Circle” which was recently nominated for a 2018 Dwayne McDuffie Award for Diversity, Love Circuits,” as well as the Eisner-nominated webcomic, “Déjà Brew“. Along the way Taneka has edited and self-published a few award-winning comics anthologies including the Lambda Literary 2016 winner for Best Anthology (Fiction) “Beyond: The Queer Sci-Fi & Fantasy Comic Anthology” and the 2017 Ignatz winner for Outstanding Anthology and is now a 2018 Eisner nominee for Best Anthology “ELEMENTS: Fire A Comic Anthology by Creators of Color” (Beyond Press).

BEYOND 2: The Queer Post-Apocalyptic & Urban Fantasy Comic Anthology features 26 stories by 39 incredible contributors, celebrating unquestionably queer characters hailing from across the spectrum of gender and sexuality, front and centre as the heroes of their own stories.

The softcover edition of the Beyond Anthology is 350 pages of black and white comics from a diverse roster of contributors, with queer stories full of renegade city fae, post-apocalyptic bicycle gangs, reclusive monster boyfriends, mysterious sewer-dwelling mermaids, and more!
