Tough Love (comic)
The first issue was released in 1996. It was photocopied and featured a bright red cover. The comic details the story of Brian, a shy gay suburban high school boy, and his kung-fu fighting boyfriend, Chris. Abby printed a few copies off for friends and sent one to XY Magazine (a publication devoted to younger gay guys) for review. XY quickly got in touch with Denson, and Tough Love was then serialized in the magazine for a couple of years, garnering it many fans around the world. At the same time, Abby continued to release it and distribute it in minicomic form.
In 1996, Manic D Press released the entire series in graphic novel form.
