Graphic Novel Week Day Two: Superheroes

Graphic Novel Week

Hey all,

The long-awaited graphic novel week is here! Today’s topic – Superheroes:

Superheroes were long solely the province of (mostly white) heterosexuals. But that’s slowly beginning to change. Queer as Folk (the US version) famously featured Rage and JT. Saturday Night Live spoofed them with the Ambiguously Gay Duo. And we’ve had a number of other characters come out in the Marvel and DC universes.

But now we’ve got some of our own, including The Young Protectors, a great LGBT series done by the fabulous Alex Woolfson and the great illustrator Adam DeKraker – we’ll have both of them in for an interview later today.

So are you a superhero fanboy or fangirl? Do you read any of the LGBT comics or characters? Where would you like to see things go in the gay superhero world?

Join the discussion.

We have a great line up this week, including six topics and four special events:

Wednesday, August 26th:
All Day: Superheroes
3 PM PDT: Interview – Alex Woolfson and Adam DeKraker, The Young Protectors

Thursday, August 27th:
