This is a special double wayback episode recorded a couple of months ago. In part 1, StevieD and I talk about his favorite legion story and in part 2, CBQScavenger and I talk about his favorite legion story.

Part 1 was recorded in a coffee shop so apologies for the background noise. Part 2 starts around the 26 and a half minute mark and was recorded in a different (and quieter location) so you can jump ahead if you’d like. Either way, both parts are super-fun.

FYI: I’ll be taking a break from the podcast in 2014 but the rest of the CBQties will keep recording for our pleasure! Feel free to follow me on my personal Twitter @legiontonyl Thanks for listening and enjoy the shows! Happy 2014 everyone!

C2E2 2012 - The CBQ/Prism Panel

CBQties StevieD and Scavenger speak about queer characters in comics, with author Robert Rodi and cartoonist Tony Breed. Recorded live at C2E2.

From the C2E2 Program:

Depictions of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender characters in comics seem to be breaking away from the purely positive "role model" portrayals that were common in comics over the past decade. Some creators aren't shying away from sex, stereotypes and bad behavior in their pursuit of intriguing and well-rounded characters.

As comics readers clamor for more explicit, more outrageous, and more extreme comics - and hail them as victories over timidity and political correctness - is it time to rewrite the rulebook on queer characters?

Join Stevie D and Joe Faust from the Comic Book Queers podcast, Robert Rodi (Codename: Knockout; Thor & Loki: Blood Brothers), Tony Breed (Finn and Charlie are Hitched) and moderator Charles "Zan" Christensen (The Mark of Aeacus; The Power Within) for a lively, irreverent discussion about the wild frontier of queers in comics.

Recorded live at C2E2 2012.
