Queer Comic Headcanons

pidgeyons:

drunk makeouts, now with extremely lazy colouring

If this isn’t your Tony mastership, you’re doing it wrong.

aeroplanestouchthesky:

If you have a headcanon for a character being gay when they’ve clearly also shown interest in a character with a different gender, you’re helping with bisexual and pansexual erasure and you really should stop.

  • Issues of The Movement by Gail Simone, featuring multiple queer (and queer readable) young adult characters. 
  • A whole bunch of our favorite new comic The Pride by Joe Glass, which features a whole cast and crew of queer characters, playing for and against stereotypes and labels and generally just being its own marking stone in LGBT comics. 
  • A near mint original copy of Engima #1 by Peter Milligan and Duncan Fegredo, featuring one of the best superhero m/m romances in comics to date from the early 90s. 
  • And a whole lot more! Comics featuring queer and queer-interpreted characters like Deadpool, Harley Quinn, Red Sonja, Hercules, Wonder Woman, and the Wolverine.

ok if you’re going to make a photoset about bi steve please don’t refer to him as ”the bisexual.” it’s not a noun. it’s an adjective.

Hello. Thor's a woman. Captain's America's black. How can you not call this progressiveness? Marvel has like a million female led comics to DC's one? three? doesn't really matter. there's not enough. the mcu introduced so many kickass female characters. Name one from the dccu. Sorry, but the fact that there are still dc fans out there is pathetic.

I’ve seen this post at least a million times on my dash this last week and it’s driving me insane. Did the person who wrote it not even look at DC? I don’t care about publisher alignments, but temporary fill-ins for headliner characters (Thor and Captain America) are nice but they don’t even remotely approach DC’s more consistent pursuit of actual headlining women and characters of color. You can’t, can’t pretend to be a critical fan of anything if you’re willing to in front of the entire site defend the marvel cinematic universe for their portrayal (or, in this case, non-portrayal) of diversity and their existing characters of color. 

What it comes down to is this: Marvel took an existing diverse team and parred it back down to white men and one white woman. DC’s new franchise is constantly announcing and leaking the expanded diversity of their teams. The main headliner team for DC, IN THE UPCOMING MOVIES, is made up of (in addition to the big three: Super, Bat, and Wonder) Aquaman, Green Lantern, Cyborg, and Shazam — all played by men of color. The majority of the team.

The men of color in the Avengers film franchise thusfar have been reduced to supporting characters in supporting movies. 

Who’s pandering to their white male fan base again?

Hello, lovelies!  As we all know, DashCon 2014 is coming up in just a few weeks! My lovely friend larissafae is coming down to visit for a little over a week at that time so she, Nick and I plan to attend together and have a blast!  That said, my retail job has not been giving me the hours I typically can expect from the summer months, and a few financial aspects such as hotel costs and transportation need to be taken into account!

With this in mind, I am opening a special commission drive to help fund our trip!  Along with the commissions I always offer, I am also offering a special deal:  traditional commissions - physical pencil and ink that can be shipped to you or picked up from me at DashCon!  Sketches will go for $10, inked for $30, and colored with Copic markers will be $50 a piece; each will be limited to two (2) characters a piece and each will be sealed in protective sheets! This is a limited time offer - after I reach our goal for the weekend, they will no longer be offered, so if you are interested, now is the time to ask!

The is also a donation button on my blog you can throw money at if you so wish!  Any little bit helps!  My present goal is $500 to help cover hotel, travel, and food.  If this goal is met, I will not only be at DashCon, but I will be giving away free WTNV prints to any and all who find me!  Cecils and Carlos and Kevins galore!

Also, larissafae is doing a writing/fic commission fund to help her build funds as well!  Check it out~  Her writing is incredible!

Any and all help will be appreciated!

ourblackproject:

For many years, Black superheroes have been dismissed as sidekicks, imitators of established white heroes, or are accused of having no role outside of blaxploitation film contexts. Yet the importance of a Storm, Luke Cage, Black Panther, or Jon Stewart as Green Lantern or Miles Morales as Spiderman cannot be understated. Their entry into comic books also served as entry to the hearts and imaginations of black children, confirming that they too can be superheroes and could one day save the world.
