That time the original New Mutants saw Cats on Broadway and felt all sorts of ways about it.

No… I’m pretty sure that’s from Season 1.

Who are the trans comics bloggers, if you don't mind my asking? I'm relatively new to talking about comics online, mostly because so many nerd spaces are so toxic. It took forever to come across a space as relatively progressive as Comics Alliance, so it still feels like I'm groping around in the dark without a flashlight, occasionally grabbing something I wish I hadn't.

So, probably the best way to find trans comics bloggers on Tumblr is to pay attention to discussions about trans issues in comics. For example, just by looking at the reblogs on the previous exchange, you’ll find me, rambleonamazon and secondstringheroine all offering our perspectives on your question.

Probably the most prominent trans comics blogger on Tumblr is ami-angelwings, who owns and runs eschergirls.

Also Mey, who blogs about comics on Autostraddle, has a Tumblr at meyllenpage. I don’t think she usually posts much about comics, since she has Autostraddle for that, but she specifically encourages questions on her Tumblr, and I’m sure she wouldn’t mind if they’re about comics.

I know of other trans comics folks on Tumblr, but I don’t know who’s okay being identified in this way. Obviously, reblogs with additional suggestions are more than welcome.

Voodoo does not incorporate snakes (only as very specific ingredients, never LIVING -- that's an entirely different religion that belongs to the white folks), and the symbols used in that last panel are actually HooDoo and they're a mixed mush of symbols that will accomplish absolutely NOTHING for a person who actually knows what the fuck they're on about. This is some seriously un-researched, dumb dumb dumb cultural appropriation by white people, yet again.

Yeah, I don’t really care about respecting religions in terms of their religiousness. (Spoiler: Real religious and mystical symbols accomplish just as much nothing as made up symbols.) But at the same time, I wish white people would stop stealing aspects of POC culture and then treating them like just another fictional context for stories about white people.

Fellow white people: this is yet another way in which we are terrible. Can we do better?

VALIANT’S FIRST NON-REVIVAL RELEASE TO BE ‘PUNK MAMBO’ ONE-SHOT FROM PETER MILLIGAN

By Patrick A. Reed

It’s a very interesting time to be a Valiant comics fan. While the company’s roster is made up of titles that revive the classic Valiant properties of the 1990s, they’ve proving to be anything but predictable in terms of content and presentation. Over the last six months alone, they’ve launched insane promotional campaigns, kicked off major crossover events, brought back long-time favorite creative teams, announced new projects from major creators, and gained acclaim for a publishing approach that seems more or less like “bring in topnotch talent, let them work their magic, and have fun”.

Later this year, the company will release its first book named for an character that didn’t have a counterpart in the ’90s Valiant line: Punk Mambo #0, a special one-shot issue written by Peter Milligan and drawn by Robert Gill focusing on the mohawked voodoo priestess first introduced in the pages of ShadowmanDescribed by Valiant as the story of how Punk Mambo migrated from crusty British high society to the dark world of American voodoo, and how she returns to her origins to discover “the punks and the voodoo priests she used to know have cleaned themselves up, and she’s a loud, belching ghost from their past, come to break in the new furniture…and break some faces!”

ComicsAlliance readers are getting the first look at three different covers to issue #0, and an exclusive conversation with writer/creator Peter Milligan about his plans for the character.

READ MORE

I have never seen or heard of this character before, but she looks pretty pretty rad. I’m not sure about the whole “white British girl doing fictionalized voodoo” thing, or the “which Peter Milligan will we be getting with this” thing, but I’m intrigued.
