Enigma, the DC/Vertigo comic book by Peter Milligan and Duncan Fegredo is claimed as the first superhero comic book with gay protagonists. And, as reported, it was originally created for Disney’s Touchmark imprint under Art Young, before the Disney implosion caused the line to be cancelled. And it’s cited as evidence that Disney are far more supportive of progressive comics than some may expect, and to allay fears for Marvel’s future. What isn’t so commonly known was the emergency standby plan devised by Milligan and Young if Disney had baulked at the relationship between the Enigma and Michael Smith, a swift unmasking would have shown Enigma to have been a woman, albeit a rather unattractive one…

Steve Lieber (Whiteout) will be signing at Earth2 in Sherman Oaks this Thursday – the day after the Whiteout movie premieres in the USA. He’ll be signing Whiteout and promoting his new book Underground.
The seven reprint British comic books being given away each day with The Guardian and The Observer next week. Some that exist – and some that no longer do. The Beano, Roy Of The Rovers, Jackie, Dandy, Tammy and Whizzer & Chips…
Local press is always the nicest to get – the Edmonton Sun covers Cowboys & Aliens, co-written by local boy Andrew Foley. As well as mentioning a previously unknown project, possibly for DC Comics, Absolute Magnitude by Robert Burke Richardson and Kuen Tang.
