Joe Glass, a former Bleeding Cool reporter, has relaunched his comic book superhero series The Pride as a digital-only series under the ComiXology Originals banner. and launching on Wednesday.

Finn Balor Doesn’t Care if Some Fans Don’t Like His Pro-LGBTQ Stance

As we all know, Finn Balor debuted his Balor Club Pride shirt at WrestleMania earlier this year. It was a stunning, beautiful statement, and one that I’m sure wasn’t easy to get approved. Before the show, I honestly thought we would see The Demon King, but I was pleasantly surprised at what he came out […]

It’s Pride Month, and we here at Bleeding Cool have covered the discussions, conflicts, and LGBTQ creators and projects that we found inspiring to date. But what of the new and rising LGBTQ voices in comics now? Which creators do we think are going to be making waves in the time to come? Well, here […]

Bleeding Cool Celebrates LGBTQ Creators For Pride Month

This Pride Month has seen a little bit of controversy in the world of comics, but it’s not all doom and gloom.

Chinese Censors Have Removed Gay Kiss From Alien Covenant

Happy Pride Month everyone! Yup, Chinese censors have removed what was, admittedly, a rather odd part from the recent new addition to the Alien saga, Ridley Scott‘s Alien Covenant. Now, it doesn’t seem that the franchises first gay couple were removed from the film, as they were barely in the film anyway after all. But […]

“Conversation” Sparked By Second Print Of ‘Divided States Of Hysteria’

In a tweet and press release entitled “CHAYKIN’S THE DIVIDED STATES OF HYSTERIA SPARKS INDUSTRY CONVERSATION”, Image Comics responded to the controversy raised last week surrounding Howard Chaykin‘s The Divided States of Hysteria. The use of “conversation” seems a little trite in this instance — while the comic certainly got people talking, it was pretty much all about […]

Howard Chaykin And The Trans Image: Obsession With A Theme

We’ve discussed, seemingly at length, about the controversy surrounding Howard Chaykin‘s latest work, the Image Comics release The Divided States of Hysteria; its inclusion of graphic trans panic violence, released on the first week of Pride Month and even with the option of a Pride Month variant cover, and Image Comics lack of response or […]

The Babadook Leaves The World Babashook In First Pride Appearances

The Babadook is a gay icon now. Okay, took me a while to understand this one, but now I am fully behind it. Stemming from a hilarious mistake on Netflix’s part, when they wrongly categorised the film as LGBT interest in late 2016, Jennifer Kent‘s The Babadook slowly built as a meme on the likes […]

An Education In LGBTQ And Allies For Pride Month

Well, what an interesting start to Pride Month it’s been so far in the world of comics. From the controversies with artist Berliac to Howard Chaykin and Image Comics on The Divided States of Hysteria, what more could there be in the first week? Popping outside of comics for a moment, clothing store Abercrombie & Fitch […]

A Week In Transphobia In Comics

It’s been an interesting first week of Pride Month for comics. Early in the week, in fact pretty much kicking it off, came news that Drawn & Quarterly had cancelled a book, Sadbøi, by artist Berliac due to a historic transphobic essay and comments that were brought to light. Now, on new comic day of […]
