Japan, as one might expect, has its own set of traditions revolving around holidays. Valentine's Day, for instance, has been imported from the West, but the rituals around it have grown very specific. Only girls give gifts on Valentine's Day, and that gift is almost never anything but chocolate. They give simple store-bought 'obligation' chocolates to any boy they'd consider a friend, and those aren't considered to mean much at all. But for that special someone, they're supposed to go to more effort -- buying fancy, expensive chocolates, or for the ultimate touch, making something at home from scratch.

Boys are expected to return the favor exactly one month later. March 14 is a holiday known as 'White Day,' when boys give white chocolate to any girl who gave them chocolate on Valentine's, and maybe fully begin a relationship with one. (You will be unsurprised to learn that White Day was invented entirely by the Japanese candy industry.)

Nowadays, though, there's a growing awareness of people who don't fit the mold -- especially in anime and manga. What do non-straight couples do on Valentine's Day? Some authors have answered that question, sometimes even drawing on their own personal experience...

Title: Astonishing X-Men
Creators: Marjorie Liu (story), Mike PErkins (art), Gabriel Hernandez Walta (art)
Posting: Four pages from AXM #49, two pages from #59, one page from #56
Availability: In the Northstar (currently on sale, btw) and Weaponized trades, and digitally.

So there's a lot I like about the Jean-Paul Beaubier/Kyle Jinadu relationship (most of it covered here).

There's quite a bit I dislike about it, the latest being the bitter hilarity of Marvel having waited about twenty years to do anything with Northstar's lovelife, and then by the time they finally decided the waters of public opinion were tepid enough to do their gay marriage/DOMA storyline, they wound up spending over a year building to a story that's currently on the cutting edge of obsolescence.

I've got to admit, though, I do love how sweet these two can be together. make me feel like there's nothing wrong with me. )

Title: Dragon Age: Those Who Speak and Dragon Age: Until We Sleep
Creators: David Gaider (writer) and Alexander Freed (artist)
Posted: About three pages total from Those Who Speak #1 and handful of panels from Until We Sleep #1 & 2
Availability: Digitally from Dark Horse and Amazon, also available in trade

Some time back, there was a kerfuffle on Bioware’s Dragon Age message boards regarding their disappointingly offensive portrayal of a trans character in DA2. There was the usual tact and sensitivity you’d expect from the dudebros, but one of the game writers did step in, apologize for the poor portrayal, and say they’d try to do better in future.

Well, here we are.

Maevaris Tilani is one of the best of us. )

[personal profile] sherkahn is spreading the wildfire, as they drop the hint that someone iconic to DC is "born this way".

While I am not happy about how DCnU has changed things, this will be a pleasant surprise.

UPDATE: *This just in*

Place your bets.  )

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....

Cover and four scans from Veronica Presents: Kevin Keller #4.

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.

Your wish has been denied! )

...There was "Action Comics Weekly", DC's first attempt at a weekly comic book. It was an anthology comic somewhat on the model of 2000 AD, several continuing stories each week, with seven page chapters (and a two-page Sunday comics spread for Superman.) There were several interesting projects done during this run--I especially liked the new Secret Six they had. Sadly, sales and logistics reasons meant that the experiment lasted less than a year.

Love that Kirby art, though I think this might have been an inventory piece DC had lying around. 2 1/3 pages from each of the seven-page storiesin Action Comics Weekly #638 (2/7/89), one double-page spread, and a special treat!

Remember relevance? )

Just found this posted via a link on Facebook.

It IS real, and is apparently not a fake, it really was issued by the US Army in 2001 (and more or less vanished from sight shortly thereafter)

Now, normally I like to preface and intersperse my postings with comments, but this... transcends anything I could hope to manage.

Wow... just... wow )

We need more manga love round these parts! I just finished reading Love My Life, a really sweet story by the great Ebine Yamaji. It's the story of two young girls in love, but it touches on many other kinds of relationships, and I think anyone would enjoy it.

Five pages from the first chapter, which is 15 pages long. I cut out the nude scene to make it SFW, which is really beautifully drawn, just like everything else. Note that this is not my translation.
