Husbands HC, co-written by Jane Espenson, with art by Natalie Nourigat and Tania del Rio

Written by Husbands creators Jane Espenson (Buffy the Vampire Slayer) and Brad Bell, this is the comic-book continuation of the sitcom phenom. Husbands tells the story of famous gay newlyweds Brady and Cheeks, who sparked a media firestorm when they woke up legally wed after a drunken Vegas weekend. Now, a mystical wedding gift launches the couple on a series of adventures-a tongue-in-cheek journey through iconic genre realms-filled with obstacles that threaten to tear them apart. Follow Brady and Cheeks into a superhero showdown, a fairytale fantasy, a Holmesian mystery, an epic galactic battle, a madcap high school romp, and a saucy secret-spy thrill ride. Includes bonus “making of” material and a special introduction.

BleedingCool got a hold of some prelim art for the proposed Marjorie Liu/Mike Perkins all-female team book for Marvel that was turned down because it “wouldn’t sell”. Here we see some ID cards featuring Black Widow as the “Spy”, Mystique as the “Mercenary”, Elektra as the “Assassin”, and X-23 as the “Solider”…or Ceceilia Reyes as the “Doctor”? WHY NOT BOTH?!

Still hope this might happen some day.

Welcome to the 2nd Annual LMC Pride Month!

It’s June 1st, which means it’s the start of LGBTQ Pride Month, with parades happening the world over in commemoration of the 1969 Stonewall Riots—a watershed event in queer rights, started when a cross-dressing black lesbian punched a cop in the face, which is possibly the best summation of the oppressed “Other” refusing to take shit from the dominant hegemony that has ever occurred in human history.

I’ll be featuring ProFiles of LBT women(-identifying) creators, as well as webcomics by LBT women and/or featuring LGBTQ themes.

I’m still in the midst of barely contained chaos in my life right now, so I’m also taking this opportunity to kick my ass back into gear (though I will be on actual vacation this coming week, so I will do the best I can on the cruise ship’s wi-fi).

Also, if you’re in the Boston area, some heads-ups for the coming month: my LCS, Comicopia, will have a marching group in next Saturday’s Pride Parade, where you will see some amazing costumes such as Red Sonja, She-Ra, and yours truly as Rainbow Dash!  In addition, Marjorie Liu will be signing Astonishing X-Men #51 (Northstar and Kyle’s wedding issue!) at Comicopia on June 23rd. I do intend to get back on a semi-regular events posting cycle soon, so hopefully these will be the first of many Pride-related events I’ll be letting you know about!

ETA: In the comments, Joamette Gil brought up Sylvia Rivera, a Puerto Rican transwoman as being the one who started the Stonewall Riots.  By her own account she was definitely there the night of the raid, but nothing to suggest that she was the one who threw the fabled punch. Wikipedia says the identity of the woman is unknown, but I dug up the name of the woman I’d first heard the story attributed to: Stormé DeLarverie. Check out this clip from In The Life about her.
