One day African American households all over the country will add a photo of Marvel’s executive management team to photos of Mandela, Malcolm X, Martin Luther King and Obama on their mantle. Elders will regale youth with stories of an African American character who briefly replaced Captain America and a single title featuring an African American female character. Why, a black man even led a third (or fourth) tier Avengers team! If we’re really lucky, one day they might even hire an African American to tell these stories! Or any story!
I’m trying to gather some examples of LGBT-themed comics that are kid-friendly (aka no sex, minimal strong language, etc.). Comics with prominent gay characters are cool too. Comics that aren’t out yet, but are on the horizon work. Webcomics too. Help me out if you know of any!
Hey guys, we’re going to be on an LGBT for young adults panel at SDCC and the organizers are putting together a readers list! Give us your suggestions for inclusive comics to share with the world!
Briar Hollow by Terry Blas, As The Crow Flies by Melanie Gillman, SOME of my Bold Riley stories can be read by younger readers. Talking Bone and Warp and Weft are fine.
