Invincible #87 was out this week, and was pretty much a textbook Invincible issue, reliably good, with a last page reveal that hints at excitement and an unexpected direction in the next issue.

All well and good, until I got to Penvincipals, and this letter, which I've edited to focus only one one section.

Here's a chap who belongs on Our Valued Customers
warning for misogyny and discussions of female sexuality in comics )

Now, I had more to say about this, but a) It's 0100 on Saturday morning and b) I worked 13 hours on Thursday and still haven't recovered.
My commentary will have to be cut down to just me saying that the letter writer is an ars and I had hoped that Kirkman would have offered more of a rebuttal to his points.

In my last post, we visited a potential future in which Kevin Keller can marry the man he loves and no one thought that was the least bit out of the ordinary.

But in the regular Archie comics, Mr. Keller must live in the eternal present. It's not quite as advanced a society....

Previously, on Kevin Keller, our protagonist did well on Witmasters, a College Bowl-like TV show where he represented Riverdale. He's looking forward to a little less excitement.
