David Kelly and Robert Kirby teamed up to create Boy Trouble, a zine devoted to queer comics. Since its inception in 1994, four issues of this zine appeared, with issue five being released in book form on the tenth Anniversary in 2004. In 2006 the anthology The Book of Boy Trouble appeared, which collected the best of issues one to four of the zine into one volume, as well as including new work. Contributors have included Anonymous Boy, editor of the zine Homopunk World, Craig Bostick, Cathy Camper, Jennifer Camper, C. Bard Cole (co-editor of the zine Riot Boy), Michael Fahy, Leanne Franson, Andy Hartzell, G.B. Jones, Nick Leonard and Sina Shamsavari, creator of the small-press comic BoyCrazyBoy, among others. Back issues of Boy Trouble zine are still available at David Kelly's website.
Previously, Robert Kirby had been the editor of the comic zine Strange-Looking Exile. He is the creator of the syndicated comic Curbside.
