Some "Super Duper " reads

Comic Con banner
Back in July, I had the most awesome experience of attending the San Diego Comic Con for the first time. Anyone who's ever been to one knows it's THE place to celebrate geekdom in all it's glory, and I absolutely loved it. One of the highlights was getting to know some really cool artists and writers, and discovering new comics to fangirl over. Which leads me to two very special finds I learned about at Prism Comics' "Emerging LGBT Voices" panel: Pride High and So Super Duper.
Pride High

Both titles are available in print and e-book through the creators' websites, and I hope some of y'all will check them out. "So Super Duper" is very sweet and funny, and if you're a comic fan like me who's pissed off at Marvel for killing off Northstar (again)--their only openly gay superhero who never once got some lovin'--Brian Anderson's take on relationships in a team of superheroes is a real treat. "Pride High" is also fantastic, with great characters and neat plot twists. The creator is such a good storyteller and his book is so much fun.

So if you're in the mood for some good comics with an LGBT twist, pick up these books! :D Hmmm. Now I kinda feel like writing and drawing some gay superstuds of my own. Yeah, yeah, I I don't already have enough on my plate. *g*

It was so good to meet you at Comic Con, Anne! You should've mentioned that you're an artist! I took a look at your gallery, and everything looks fantastic. You've got a really wide range of styles. I especially love the Paw Prints covers. Would you be interested in doing a cover of Pride High?

Hi, Tommy! Stand back, I'm going to have a fangirl moment: SQUEEE!!! I'm so happy you stopped by the S&B blog, and holy smokes--would I ever LOVE to do a Pride High cover! The characters are just awesome (I especially heart Beowulf), and the overall message of the comics is so positive. *gushes*

Okay, I'll stop being a total dork now. :o) But discovering the Pride High books at SDCC, and then to meet everyone at the Prism booth on top of that, was a real treat.
