Nightwing's Still Using His Sexuality to Make Comics More Progressive Nightwing's Still Using His Sexuality to Make Comics More Progressive

We’re getting to a point in Dick Grayson’s career where he’s spent more time galavanting around the world as a world-renowned spy than he has as Bruce Wayne’s successor to the cowl. But one of the things writers like Gail Simone and Grayson’s Tim Seeley (who also writes the current Nightwing Rebirth series) made a…

Snagglepuss: Exit Stage Left Is a Brilliant Exploration of McCarthyism and the Lavender Scare Snagglepuss: Exit Stage Left Is a Brilliant Exploration of McCarthyism and the Lavender Scare

Every time I’ve found myself explaining the basic premise of Mark Russell and Mike Feehan’s Snagglepuss: Exit Stage Left, people’s immediate reactions have been the same.

Liz Klinger admits that the Lioness isn’t the world’s greatest vibrator. It won’t work perfectly for every person who uses it. “No vibrator is for everybody. You’d have to have, like, a Play-Doh thing that has a motor in it,” she told me in a crowded coffee house at lunch hour.

The Flintstones Comic Is a Darkly Funny Story About the Perils of Late Stage Capitalism The Flintstones Comic Is a Darkly Funny Story About the Perils of Late Stage Capitalism

When William Hanna and Joseph Barbera’s original Flintstones cartoon first aired back in 1960, it was a clever, campy celebration of suburban sprawl and a very particular kind of middle class American Dream™. In Mark Russell and Steve Pugh’s recently-ended Flintstones comic series, that same dream is explored in a…

How The TV Show of Octavia Butler's Dawn Will Stay True to Her Incredible Vision How The TV Show of Octavia Butler's Dawn Will Stay True to Her Incredible Vision

Making Octavia Butler’s novel Dawn into a television show sounds like kind of a foolhardy idea. It’s a post-apocalyptic storyline, in which the Earth is basically on the brink of destruction, and the last humans are offered salvation by aliens... who want to mate with us and change us.

From Lazarus Long To Capt. Jack Harkness: Bisexuality In Science Fiction From Lazarus Long To Capt. Jack Harkness: Bisexuality In Science Fiction

Why were there so many bisexual heroes in the 1970s (including Robert A. Heinlein's Lazarus Long), and was bisexuality viewed as "futuristic"? More to the point, why did bi heroes mostly vanish throughout the 1980s and 1990s, and what brought them back? Erotic science fiction author and Circlet Press publisher Cecilia…
