Close friends and new acquaintances at an anime convention confront their crushes, challenge their hang-ups, and question their once-comfortable identities in this erotic graphic novel about discovering who you're meant to truly be and who you're meant to love.
Home from college for the summer, a group of friends—including cosplay photographer Priya, con pal Emi, lifelong and currently-transitioning friend Lee, crossplayer Sierra, her very supportive boyfriend Tommy, and the mysteriously distracted Jillian—have reunited at their favorite con. What begins as two days of simple fun turns into earth-shaking milestones of sexual discovery, confessed crushes, and gender exploration. Over the course of a single weekend, the group uses what they love to figure out who they are, what they want, and what will make them happy.
Crossplay is an earnest love letter to anime fandom, and the graphic novel debut of Smut Peddler creator Niki Smith.
