The Polyamory And Fluid Sexuality In Uncanny X-Force

Mike Hogan writes; When the creative team behind the new volume of Uncanny X-Force was announced, I wondered if Sam Humphries would bring the same kind of boundary-challenging ideas that we’ve seen in Our Love is Real to the new Uncanny X-Force.
