This one page story I wrote and drew is part of the Marvel’s Voices special, published by Marvel Comics last week and focusing on diverse authors.
As a queer southamerican artist, this is super special for me. I was invited just as artist, but I ended up pitching and writing my own story, the one I needed to read.
For the first time ever the LGBT+ superheroes gather to celebrate themselves, honor the history of our fight and make a metatextual statement. We’re here in and out of the page.
(I might write a panel by panel commentary with all the details and narrative decitions I made)
Esta historia de una página escrita y dibujada por mi es parte del especial Marvel’s Voices que publicó Marvel Comics la semana pasada, poniendo en foco a autores diverses.
Para mi, como artista marika y sudaca es algo mega especial. Me invitaron a participar como dibujante y terminé proponiendo también escribir mi propia historia, la que yo necesitaba leer.
Por primera vez lxs superhéroes LGBT+ se reúnen para celebrarse en comunidad, homenajear la historia de nuestras luchas y hacer un statement metatextual. Acá estamos, adentro y afuera de la página.
(Capaz en algun momento escriba un comentario cuadro a cuadro detallando todo)
Now this is a great piece of art, and decent short story.
It's people like you who should write comics. People who can give the characters and medium the respect they deserve. Keep up the good work.
I didn't know some of them were LGBTQ, though, (not doubting you, just a gap in my own knowledge), and I don't recognize everyone...
I think I saw Dylan Brock in panel three, but I could be wrong. I know I saw the Moloid kid from the Future Foundation that realized she's a girl in the final panel juuuust in the shot, you can only see less than half her face.
