The 25 Awesomest LGBTQ Comic Book Characters

Recently someone linked me to a 7 Best Gay Characters In Comics list. While the list was solid, I was inspired to compose my own list of the 25 awesomest LGBTQ characters in comic books and/or comic book themed media/adaptations.

In Praise Of: Damian Joining Teen Titans

Seriously, this is as good as Guy Gardner joining the Justice League. From the new issue of Teen Titans #89 by JT Krul and Nicola Scott, a few as-little-spoilery-as-possible highlights. As well as Damian works in Batman And Robin, he works even better in Teen Titans.

Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it's a Jewish superhero

Joe Kubert called him Ragman...

Amazing new diving suit turns wearer into Aquaman

Aquaman gets a bad rap as a useless superhero because his powers of breathing liquid, diving to the deepest depths and talking to fish are only helpful underwater. Now scientists have made Aquaman even more useless by creating a diving suit that allows anyone who wears it to share those powers.

First it was comic books, now video games

A look at Fredric Wertham's tainted crusade by George Will

Andre Szymanowicz Nails His Jump Shots of Robin and The Spirit [Art]

Andre Szymanowicz draws some quirky stuff, such as Don Draper dressed as Madman and his "Popgun"-invitee comic "Sushi Nachos." It's no wonder that he was asked to contribute artwork for "Elephantmen," too, given how animated his Batman and Spirit sketches look, even when they're covered in shadows and watercolors.

Best Art Ever (This Week) - 11.26.10

The proliferation of social media is an incredible boon for lovers of comic book art, design and illustration. Sites like Flickr, Tumblr, DeviantArt and other countless blogs and feeds bombard us with a ceaseless supply of artwork by professionals and fans that is variously excellent, clever, funny, innovative, and numerous degrees of awesome.

1991-92 Impel DC Cosmic Cards #60- John Stewart

I really need to get John Stewart a headshot for this blog. I'm a fan of the character, specifically Gerard Jones' take from Mosaic, but the guy's always been the coolest, most competent Green Lantern (Xanshi excluded.) I've never been a Joe Staton fan, but even he can't bring Stewart down.

Five More Things You Didn’t Know About Green Lantern

Developments such as the dawning realization that the mainstream movie-going audience probably doesn’t realize that there is more than one Green Lantern have served as the latest reminder that our corner of the world is pretty convoluted if you don’t live your life hip deep in it like some of us do. And even if you do know your Hal Jordan from your Guy Gardner and John Stewart, concepts in comics can sometimes be stranger than they appear:

Matthew Kaufenberg Hand Draws the Happiest Set of Trading Cards You'll Ever Need [Art]

If tangent universes suddenly started to bleed and Johnny Ryan an Charles Schultz formed a tarot card publishing company featuring notable comic book and video game heroes, you would expect their decks to be stuffed with the kind of artwork that Matthew Kaufenberg puts his name on. As an illustrator, he really seems to enjoy wrapping classic characters like Wolverine, Marty McFly and Dr. Doom around Stimpy-proportioned bodies, and as art lovers, we're completely OK with appreciating the prickly, broad-shouldered tributes to comics and games that he sells.

Preview: Art Baltazar’s Super Pets

With a small suite of writers, Art Baltazar has created a new line for DC Comics and Capstone publisher, six new books based around the Super Pets. JE Bright, John Mason and Sarah Hines Stephens have written stories around the pets of the Justice League and villainous pets they must combat. Out in the New Year, here is a Bleeding Cool sneak peek…

2010 Green Lantern Movie Trailer

The Entertainment Tonight preview looked pretty bad, but now that the full length trailer for Warner Brother's summer 2011 tentpole has been released, I figure this better pull some kind of Hancock. I mean, I never saw the Will Smith vehicle, but even though the reviewers were unkind, it was able rake in some dough. At the end of the day, it was one of the world's biggest stars playing the only black super-hero to ever be afforded a decent budget, and the comedy worked for its audience. Green Lantern seems to fall more on the Meteor Man side of "funny super-heroics," and Ryan Reynolds has never really proven himself outside of comedy of the dubious/romantic variety. Maybe it's just me, but that CGI costume looks ridiculous, and I can't see past Reynolds to Hal Jordan. Blake Lively looks like she should be carded, and acts like cardboard. The brief glimpses of Hector Hammond recall Jeffrey Jones in Howard the Duck. The other aliens/landscapes make for some really nice video game cut scenes, but on the silver screen? It seems to me this thing really wants to be Iron Man, but everything is so awkward and goofy looking, it has the stink of too-faithful failures past all over it (The Phantom, The Rocketeer, Superman Returns.) It may make money, but will it win hearts?

For the record, Captain America looks like it's going to break my heart. That's possibly my all time favorite super-hero, but he just does not seem to work in live action. My only hope for next year is Thor. Like Iron Man, I don't care very much about Thor as a comic book character, but the film shows all kinds of promise. Check the trailer below and tell me what your preference is. I reserve the right to mock you, by the way.

I hesitated to post this, because the artist likes drawing naked super-heroines only so much more than naked swipes. Still, this piece looks original enough, and I doubt it was Ben Turner getting drawn if the layout turned out to be "borrowed," plus I feel bad about test study devouring this blog, so...

10 Comics Ready for Prime Time

With AMC's "The Walking Dead" debuting to record ratings and Fox putting "Locke & Key" on the fast track, it seems likely more network executives will cast an eye toward comic books - particularly those that don't involve capes and tights - when they look to diversify their lineups in future seasons.

Tom Bondurant considers the history of the Legion of Super-Heroes and, despite his love for DC Comics, explores the reasons why he's never really been that passionate about them.

1993 Mayfair Games DC Heroes Role-Playing Game Third Edition The Man of Steel Entry

The Mayfair system was awesome for super-hero action gaming, but they jumped the gun on Steel's stats, seeing as he was so new that they were still working with very temporary aliases ("Henry Johnson," "The Man of Steel.") His Intelligence of 7 is too low, equated to Aquaman and Nightwing where he later proved himself at least a tier (if not two) higher. Sub-Olympic Dexterity is okay, but his Strength is insanely high, especially since his Body of 6 clearly doesn't take his (admittedly flimsy) armor into account. All of his bottom stats are completely outrageous as well. Still, it's a nice picture, and I'm pleased John got the attention so early in his career.
