The Case for Paradise Island As Lesbian Utopia [Pride Week]
The Amazons are queer to begin with. That’s not even up for debate.

And when I talk about the Amazons, I’m talking about the ones in Wonder Woman comics, as originally introduced in 1941 by H.G. Peter, William Moulton Marston, and Marston’s partners and uncredited collaborators…
Character And Color in Stokely And Spurrier's 'The Spire'
With its eighth issue, Si Spurrier and Jeff Stokely's The Spire wrapped up last week, bringing the the series' whodunnit to a satisfying and surprisingly emotional conclusion. Given that it starred one of my favorite queer characters in recent comics, this seemed like a great time to look …
Should You Be Reading 'Rainbow Mansion'?

The Case For Pansexual Starfire [Pride Week]

The Case For Queer Superboy [Pride Week]
A great many LGBTQ people realize that they’re queer at a young age. Maybe it’s through childhood crushes on fictional characters or an intrinsic knowing that they’re not the gender they’ve been assigned. Many who discover their identities later in life wish they had the …

The Case For Gay Miles Morales [Pride Week]
Everyone needs a Spider-Man. Sure, Peter Parker might be good for some people, but my Spider-Man was always Mayday Parker from the MC2. I want Spider-Man to be anyone.
