Webcomic: Niklas And Friends
The title character
Niklas and Friends is a discontinued coming-of-age webcomic whose author used the pseudonym "Niklas Edlund". The comic, site and author were criticized for supposedly promoting paedophilia even though none of the stories contain anything related to that. The stories do have a minor GLBT component but this is deliberately left vague and mainly up to the reader.

The site was started in 1998 and was last updated in 2006 after the author ceased working on the comic due to threats and abuse.

Tropes used in Niklas and Friends:

  • Ambiguously Gay: Most of the boys have very close friendships, but only one is canonically gay.
  • The Unpronounceable: a character is named Martin Czrnczinsky. When asked about the correct pronunciation, the author replied to "pronounce it any way you like".
  • Token Minority: His "token" status may be arguable but Randy is the only canonically gay character.
  • Wicked Stepfather: Several comics imply, and the bio page for Keith shows, that Keith's stepfather beats him.
