INTERVIEW: Alex Wolfson

The Young Protectors

One of our favorite gay superhero comic writers has an interview over at Gay Star News: We caught up with Alex Woolfson, creator of The Young Protectors series, to share superhero fantasies and talk about how to make it as a gay comic book writer. When did you first discover your passion for comics and graphic novels? I’d always read and enjoyed comic books as a kid, but there was one story arc I read as a teenager that had a powerful effect on me – the God Loves, Man Kills arc of the X-Men. In that story, religious fundamentalists … Read more

Dispatches from Hogwarts G.S.A.: In tribute to a Hero: Perry Moore

Perry Moore

For this month’s dispatch, we thought we’d write about an innovator and an activist in queer fantasy who left us much too soon. Perry Moore (1971-2011) was an author, screenwriter, and a film director. He was probably best known for The Chronicles of Narnia franchise. Widely regarded as smart, influential, and not incidentally a handsome guy, Moore accumulated an impressive Hollywood resumé by his mid-thirties. Though his work was behind the scenes, he seemed to fit the moniker “golden boy” in a lot of ways. Moore was also an openly gay man in an industry where, if being gay was … Read more

Coming Out as Gay Superheroes

Stripling Warrior

When the mutant superhero Iceman came out last month — thanks to a one-two punch of his prying telepathic teammate and a time-travel visit from his younger self — he immediately became the most prominent gay comic book character. But his revelation was far from the only story line involving gay, lesbian and transgender characters in the fast-evolving world of comic-book narratives. In October, Alysia Yeoh, a transgender friend of Batgirl, and her girlfriend Jo were married in a simple ceremony unmarred by super-villainy; Peter Parker, perhaps better known as Spider-Man, attended the wedding of Max Modell, his scientific mentor … Read more
