Boom’s Backstagers is one of my favorite comics to premiere in the last year. Ryan Sigh’s lineart and Walter Baiamonte's colors bring the weird, gorgeous magical backstage world to life, but it’s also worth highlighting James Tynion IV’s writing, particularly his focus on overt, in-canon queer representation.
Before Backstagers #7 comes out on February 22, I want to take note of the loveliness that is Backstagers #6, published in January. Spoilers for #6, and for the series as a whole, below.
Oh Joy Sex Toy began in 2013 with a simple comic reviewing one of the most popular sex toys out there -- the Magic Wand Original, a vibrator of much renown. From there, the comic has spiraled out to cover every subject related to sex in a joyful, informative, and very funny manner.
Illyana Rasputin was Kitty Pryde's first true love, and you'll never convince me otherwise. Sure, Kitty had already expressed an interest in Illyana's brother Piotr (the gentle giant known as Colossus), but at the time that was more of a childhood crush. It was only later, after Kitty had become an adult without Piotr getting much older, that later writers decided that Kitty and Colossus had been "true love." Kitty's relationship with Illyana, meanwhile, was a close connection between two equals.
This week, there’s a Luthor on trial in the court of law, and another on trial in the court of public opinion, and Supergirl must decide who she can trust. Also, Metallo returns, and romance may be in the air. “Luthors” was directed by Tawnia McKiernan from a script by Robert Rovner and Cindy Lichtman.
Imagine Pride and Prejudice, only Darcy is a handsome young doctor, and Elizabeth Bennett is the daughter of anthropologists who grew up in the rainforest, only just now returning to “civilization.” Fighting with propriety and their own feelings, the protagonists of Miss Abbott And The Doctor must learn that maybe the other isn’t so bad. Maybe they’re actually kind of cute.
Friends, how many times have you seen this story play out? Boy meets girl who ushers him into a hidden world beyond our own where he gets special powers. Girl mentors boy in use of said powers. Girl and boy, despite a solid bond formed in battle, argue constantly. But then, after enduring innumerable trials and hardships only to come out the other side stronger, girl and boy realize they can't live without each other and finally admit their feelings. Cue Big Dramatic Kiss and Sappy Montage of Happiness, right?
Well, in the case of Tite Kubo's Bleach, which concluded last August after 15 years, the answer turned out to be a firm "no." And that still kinda bugs me.
The 1989 Avengers West Coast Annual featured an unusual short story by Mark Waid and then-newcomer Amanda Conner called "Rate The Hunks," in which Wasp and She-Hulk offered their expert assessment on the sex appeal of their male Avengers colleagues. Almost thirty years later, we've assembled our own experts to repeat the exercise, with an updated twist.
There are many ships in fandom, but Transformers is all but unique in that Transformers ships can feature people who turn into ships. A ship-based ship is therefore provably superior, and what is also provable is this: Nautica and Velocity, from Lost Light (formerly known as More Than Meets the Eye) are 100% in love.
Many ships are based on unfounded speculation, but not this one: this is based on hard, provable facts, with every assertion true because it’s backed up by the weight of cold, steely logic.
In this episode, Steven, Greg, and the Crystal Gems return to Earth, and learn about the adventures that Connie, Lapis Lazuli, and Peridot got up to while protecting Beach City. The New Crystal Gems was written by Raven M. Molisee and Paul Villeco, and directed by Kat Morris and Ricky Cometa.
