One of the nice things about Adam Warren’s Empowered series is that it’s equal opportunity with its fan-service. There’s just as many barely clothed men running around as there are women, and the presence of gay and lesbian heroes is pretty much taken for granted. Maidman’s been presented as straight so far, but he is certainly the baddest assest man to fight crime in a sexy little French Maid outfit all the same.

Did you ever think that we’d live to see the day when Archie comics, of all companies, would publish a comic book starring a gay character?

Bluewater Productions continues their race to the bottom with a comic about noted homophobe Laura Ingraham. It’s kind of cute how the solicitation copy tries to make it sound like the people who have accurately described her as a bigot are somehow the unreasonable ones here.

Hermes Press is reissuing the first two volumes of all-ages comic Lions, Tigers and Bears, with art by gay cartoonist Jack Lawrence. I remember when Image was putting these out, and they were fairly good, and I like Lawrence’s style quite a bit.

I can think of a number of gay men who wouldn’t mind John Barrowman on their chest.
(Yes, Pete, I’ll get you one.)

    Wait, there’s a comic where a male superhero dresses up as a maid and calls himself Maidman?

    Thanks for reminding that my closest comic book store is over 100 miles away.

    Uh, yeah… gay men.
