Here’s a list of some awesome media that focuses on queer werewolves, my favorite supernatural being. All of these pieces of media have at least one queer werewolf on screen/on the page as main or secondary characters. Many of these pieces of media also contain graphic violence so it’s the one thing I won’t be warning for.
Title: Harmony Black series
Creator: Craig Schaefer
Content Notes: non-consensual kissing (in book 3 specifically), body-horror
Queerwolf Focus: Technically, Jessie Temple isn’t a typical werewolf, but courtesy of her serial-killing father’s dealings with the King of Wolves, there’s something wolfish in her that takes control every so often despite her attempts at holding her own.
Jessie, a black lesbian and absolute badass, is a secondary character in Schaefer’s dark urban fantasy series. She’s present in all of the books so far, but “her” book, Glass Predator, is an incredible read that gives us a great look at one of the coolest queerwolves in the genre.
Creator: Suzanne Walker (writer) and Wendy Xu (illustrator)
Queerwolf Focus: Tam Lang, a genderqueer werewolf, is reunited with their childhood crush (Nova Huang) after ten years apart. They’re the adorable star of a slice of life, supernatural comic and I just want to gently squish their face. I love this webcomic and I’m really excited for y’all to adore Tam Lang as much as I do already.
Title: Cereus series
Creator: Sean Michael, BA Tortuga, and Julia Talbot
Content Notes: This is erotica and there’s explicit sex all over
Queerwolf Focus: In this anthology series, there are queer werewolves galore in a couple of steamy sexy stories from Julia Talbot and BA Tortuga:
- “It’s Elemental” in Cereus: Building
- “Pack Rules” and “Downward Dog” in Cereus: Opening
- “Weed and Feed” in Cereus: Training
- “Baby-Sitting Job” in Cereus: Rescue
Title: The Night Belongs To Us
Creator: L.R. Hale
Queerwolf Focus: Our queerwolf, Hank (short for Henrietta), is turned at the start of the comic after being attacked while on a run. The Night Belongs To Us has slice of life elements and a huge focus on Hank’s life after being turned and her complicated relationship with the vampire Ada. It’s a compelling story with vivid art and a deep plot that I really enjoyed.
Creator: Katie Schenkel (writer) and Cal Moray (artist)
Queerwolf Focus: I love this series so much! This is a comic that is literally full of queerwolves. I mean, I’m pretty sure most if not all of the werewolves in this series are queer (cute and fluffy) and it’s fantastic because I want to cuddle them all.
And it’s something that you can share with the young’uns in your family. Yay for an all ages queerwolf story!
Title: Scarlet and the White Wolf series
Creator: Kirby Crow
Queerwolf Focus: This series might just be one of my favorite Red Riding Hood retellings. I’m serious. This book series is like an epic fantasy take on Red Riding Hood and it’s such a great read. Seriously, while I can’t remember if Liall is actually a werewolf or if he’s just referred to as a wolf, he’s wolfy enough to count either way and his relationship with Scarlet is amazing to follow along with.
Title: Kate Kane, Paranormal Investigator series
Creator: Alexis Hall
Content Notes: In the first book, there’s a scene where Tara gets kind of creepy-pushy with Kate
Queerwolf Focus: Tara is kind of… the alpha werewolf of my dreams. She’s kind of awful but definitely my kind of awful. While Tara isn’t the focus of the novels (and is a kind of antagonistic figure to Kate at points), she’s such a fantastic alpha female that I kind of wish she was more present.The Kate Kane series is across the board one of the best queer urban fantasy series that I’ve read and it’s because basically most of the characters on the page are queer.
Creator: Michelle Osgood
Content Notes: Mentions of dysphoria (from Ryn)
Queerwolf Focus: This is a book that’s literally filled with queerwolves. I mean all of the main characters are queer werewolves. Like… it’s basically the ideal. This is the second book in the series, but so far, despite not reading the first book, I’m not lost. It’s an intense read and the only reason I’m not finished yet is because I’m savoring the tension.
Title: APPEAL! – ZINE
Creator: Ru Xu
Queerwolf Focus: This is a zine about a young werewolf (who’s also a lawyer) that falls for a hot single dad (who’s also a vampire). Prime queerwolf content and 100% my kind of thing. And if you follow Ru Xu on twitter or become a Patron, you get access to even more stuff for these characters.
