The final issue of The Children’s Crusade is finally coming out.
For a book that was sold as promising major status quo changes for both the Avengers and the X-Men franchises, it certainly feels like this has quietly fizzled out. Of course, the series started at least three cross-overs ago, so who can say what the original plan actually was…
I’m just hoping that the end result is a regular title with Wiccan and Hulkling, so I can say that there’s at least one Marvel title I enjoy.
I didn’t think the “gay guy narrates honey badger clip” video was all that funny, but it certainly wasn’t anything worth being bent out of shape about. Even when opportunistic t-shirts started showing up in stores. But when Antarctic Press gets in on it?
Yeah, now it’s hate-worthy.
Meanwhile at Archie, they’re releasing a trade paperback collection of all the previous Kevin Keller appearances, just in time for the first issue of the Kevin Keller ongoing to launch, with this ginchy variant cover:
The first issue is dedicated to Kevin’s first date. And yes, we live in a world where Archie is doing comics about gay teens dating. Which is sort of fantastic.
I haven’t followed the Kirby: Genesis comics from Dynamite at all. They’re just not my thing. But Rob Rodi writing “not-Thor”?
Okay, that at least gets a look.
Eaglemoss is releasing a Northstar/Aurora pack in their Marvel figurine collection.
No collection is complete without a little lead figure of a gay French-Canadian Olympic skier/reformed terrorist.
I have absolutely no idea how I feel about Diamond carrying bishie body pillows like this Black Butler one here:
