How Loathsome is a series of goth, LGBT comics by Ted Naifeh and Tristan Crane. Originally published in 2003 in four separate issues, the series was released in a graphic novel format in 2004 by Comics Lit/NBM.[1][2]

The story chronicles the misadventures of several, loosely connected residents of San Francisco, as it addresses issues of gender identity, sexuality, fetishism, drug use, and goth subculture.[3][4][5]

How Loathsome received the Ninth Art Lighthouse award for "Best New Series" in 2003, and was runner-up for its "Best Bookshelf Comic" award in 2004.[6]
