We've had our fair share of posts about it already, but Kieron Gillen and Jamie McKelvie's terrific - and LGBT-postiive - Young Avengers #1 is in stores (retail and digital!) today. ComicsAlliance might have the best interview with the creators I've seen yet:
CA: I'm going to start with the gay characters, because I couldn't really start anywhere else. So, chaps; is there a burdensome sense of responsibility in taking on such a well-loved gay teen couple?
Kieron Gillen: Burdensome is a little strong, I suspect. That's the sort of thing you have to try and work your way around -- if you end up thinking just about what the characters mean to people you end up taking your eye off what the characters mean in-and-of-themselves, which is primarily as characters. They need to live, if you see what I mean.
KG: ... If people want to see Wiccan and Hulkling happy forever, they should make a statue of them kissing or something.
CA: They absolutely should! That would sell like hot boys kissing.
KG: HOT HOT HOT.
JM: Yes, but it would be very boring spread over a year's worth of issues. Though I could just cut and paste.
