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.

...you 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. )

BleedingCool.com 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.

...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.

Behold my dance of squee over the first English-licensed manga from my personal yaoi rockstar, Kou Yoneda! These are scans from her breakout hit debut No Touching at All, AKA Doushitemo Furetakunai (どうしても触れたくない). It's elegant, funny, and well-plotted(!) yaoi, and it makes me cry every goddamn time I read it.

The background: Techie Shima is the new employee starting at a computer company, and he wants to keep his personal past private and to not make waves. His taciturn awkwardness catches the attention of gregarious section chief Togawa, whose friendly overtures soon turn to flirtation. Still scarred from the ugly breakup with an emotionally abusive boyfriend/coworker at his last job, Shima is deeply reluctant to start a new office romance. But Togawa is slowly drawing Shima out of his shell through the power of, umm, personal charm.

True love, really.

Mouthwash is a boy's best friend, Togawa.


6 scans from fan translations below cut. I'm not sure if it's okay to credit the scanlators by name, but I thank them anyway for working their asses off to spread the boyslove. It's manga, so remember to read right to left!

6 pages from a 33-page chapter )

For more lovely art of pretty men—with bonus angst and hot sex—you can POST MORE SCANS look for No Touching at All in mid-2010 from Juné Manga.

hey i just wanted to say that i just recently read the newest Detective comics, and while the as always the Question stuff was great, i really liked the Batwoman portion. I know alot of people were peeved at the whole "Buxom lipstick lesbian" promotion, and have since then come to appreciate the character.

all that said, i loved this scene from the latest issue. It shows Kate's homosexuality does not define her, rather, it is her strength of character.

Nice Batwoman Moment<a href= )


Spoilers )

PS i could use some help with the Cut.... the scan is not showing...

Scans from Alison Bechdel's memoir Fun Home: A Family Tragicomic. The summary from the back cover: "Distant and exacting, Bruce Bechdel was an English teacher and director of the town funeral home, which Alison and her family referred to as the 'Fun Home.' It was not until college that Alison, who had recently come out as a lesbian, discovered that her father was gay. A few weeks after this revelation, he was dead, leaving a legacy of mystery for his daughter to resolve."

In Chapter 4, "In the Shadow if Young Girls in Flower," Alison discovers some incriminating photos.
