Asume Nothing, by Leanne Franson

Leanne Franson is the creator of the 'Liliane' mini-comics, which has been running since 1992. There are now two collections available, 'Assume Nothing' and 'Teaching Through Trauma'. Franson's comic is autobiographical, centering on Liliane, a Canadian "bi-dyke". She concentrates less on strips than on extended essays, on various themes: her problems trying to get pregnant, working for a sex hotline, butches, the Michigan Womyn's Music Festival, relationship problems, etc.

Liliane and Leanne Franson

Liliane, drawn as an oval with dots for eyes and no nose, has a day job as a children's book illustrator. Franson's general good humor account for the light feeling of the comic, despite the heavy themes that she sometimes takes on.

For 15 years, the site was funded from the resources of our Amsterdam-based shop. However, the current economical circumstances make it difficult for us to maintain this service. At the moment the Comiclopedia's sole editor works for us free of charge, aided by a couple of (international) volunteers.
