Week of 23 May 2012

LSH Content this week:

  • Teen Titans #9 (2012/07) - the sloppy conclusion of the messy Culling storyline (quick version: it stops)
Now available from and probably your local comic shop:
  • Legion Archives #13 - the long-awaited (13 9 years) next volume of Legion Archives
Also potentially of interest this week:
  • Astounding X-Men #50 (2012/07) - Northstar proposes to his boyfriend. Next issue (#51) is the big gay superhero wedding. When will superheroes learn: when you get married, dash down to City Hall and do it on your lunch hour. Big public weddings always result in disaster. Starfinger stole the bride. Garth and Imra's wedding caused That Damned Tabloid. Be like Gim and Yera: get married offstage.
In the news:
  • DC co-publisher Dan DiDio, who has been hinting for a year of the imminent appearance of a gay DC superhero, hinted this week at the imminent appearance of a gay DC superhero. He said that the superhero -- an established player in one of the series, originally introduced as straight -- will become "one of our most prominent gay characters." My money's on Lori Lemaris. [Sheesh, doesn't the guy realize that DC already has prominent gay superheroes? Vi and Ayla. Tel and his spouse, Jed. Doesn't he read the Legion?]

Dude, you are so right. I don't know how I turned 9 years into 13.

Maybe it's just seemed a lot longer. :)
