David Kelly and Robert Kirby teamed up to create Boy Trouble, a zine devoted to queer comics. Four issues of this zine appeared, with issue five being released in book form in 2004. In 2006 the anthology The Book of Boy Trouble appeared, which collected all the issues of the zine into one volume, as well as including new work. Contributors include Anonymous Boy, editor of the zine Homopunk World, Jennifer Camper, Michael Fahy and G.B. Jones among others.
Previously, Robert Kirby had been the editor of the comic zine Strange Looking Exile. He is the creator of the syndicated comic Curbside.
