Welcome to Flame Con Week! And by that, I mean that I will be attending Flame Con in Brooklyn this weekend and wanted to celebrate! Flame Con is the largest LGBT comic convention on the East Coast, and I will be showing off Gamer Girl & Vixen! It’s our first big convention and we’re super excited. And to celebrate, I wanted to do another LGBTQ focused comic book list!
I’ve already written about my favorite LGBTQ characters and couples. This time, it’s about which of those characters I think deserve their own comic book series! There have been a ton of new LGBTQ comics hitting the stands — and not just Gamer Girl & Vixen. We’ve got Iceman, Midnighter, Harley Quinn and more. I’m excited for all of this diversity and acceptance, and I think a couple other characters could use their own books!
Join me after the jump for the six LGBTQ comic book characters who I think should get their own ongoing comic book!
Next week is Flame Con! I’ll tell you all about it when I get home. It’s going to be the big convention debut of Gamer Girl & Vixen, and we are very excited! But we’ve got to wait, and until then, we can read the likes of Detective Comics, Harley Quinn, Squirrel Girl and even Ms. Marvel!
Comic Book of the Week goes to the first issue of writer Tom King’s new Mister Miracle series. This is the issue that everybody is talking about this week, and for damn good reason!
I’m ready for Secret Empire to be over. These events are way too long. The latest issue is fine. It’s all still fine. But there’s no energy anymore. It doesn’t feel like the story is just going through the motions, per se. It’s more like…clearly this whole thing was orchestrated from on high, like all stories. But rather than really tell the story and the nitty gritty, we’re kind of just strolling through the big moments. We’re not reading this comic so much as it’s being told to us. I hope that explains it.
Comic Reviews: Detective Comics #962, Harley Quinn #25, Hulk #9, Mister Miracle #1, Ms. Marvel #21, Unbeatable Squirrel Girl #23.
Quite funny! Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 remains my favorite movie of the year so far, and the How It Should Have Ended folk have finally produced their cartoon! And it’s quite good!
I like when these peeps focus more on the humor and not their Batman/Superman cafe scenes. Fortunately, this one has both, so everybody will be pleased!
Not too long after we got our first looks at Domino for the upcoming Deadpool sequel, but here’s actor Josh Brolin as Cable! Quite fancy!
And here he is again!
Looks fine to me! Not sure how Cable is going to fit into the Deadpool movie, but then I suppose people have been wondering that about Cable and Deadpool comics for years! I’m sure they’ll make it pretty awesome.
Want to see something awesome? Then check out the artwork of Unnecessarily X-essive! Artist Scott Modrzynski has apparently spent the past few years drawing every single character and alternate costume that ever appeared in the multi-decade Uncanny X-Men. And I do mean every character. Even background characters.
Here are some of my favorites:
This is a masterpiece of Internet X-Menery. Somebody buy this guy a drink or tell him to start working on the Avengers!
