nega-tiva was a comic zine by A. K. Summers published in Chicago, Il., U.S.A.

nega-tiva was released in the early 1990's. It was a minicomic with a three-color cover, and the interior contents in black and white. It was billed as "Chicago's Astute Lezbo Fantasy Mag". The comic itself was a surrealistic look at life, and a skeptical look at lesbian culture, told partly in writing and partly through comics. Nine issues were released between 1991 and 1993.

Issue seven, released in 1992, tells the story of "The Sexless One". This tale is subtitled "A Cautionary Tale in the Present Tense", and the introduction to the story begins with the following premise: "The tragic story of the Sexless one begins here: in the Porkchopolis, where everybody is getting it on or at least experimenting with new ways to masturbate. Everybody ...That is...Except the Sexless One!" .
