Queer Comics News Roundup

Work continues on the film adaptation of Greg Rucka's Queen & Country comic. Craig Viveiros is set to direct and newly out actress Ellen Page is starring.  Q&C featured at least one gay minor character, Nick Poole.

The National Coalition Against Censorship, the CBLDF, the Modern Language Association, and others have sent a letter to the South Carolina Senate Finance Committee to urge the Senate to reject House budget cuts to two colleges because their summer reading programs included queer texts (one of which is Fun Home).

The Color Barrier at CBR has a two-part conversation with out creator Phil Jimenez about race, sexuality, and Wonder Woman as a queer icon. Part One and Part Two.

New interview with Alison Bechdel at the Gay News Network about her long-running strip Dykes to Watch Out For.

Joseph Glass' gay superhero comic, The Pride, started this week on Comixology.

James Marsters (Spike) and Nicholas Brendon (Xander) will help write some of the Buffy Season 10 comics.

The trailer for X-Men: Days of Future Past is out and looks amazing.  I'm including this in the news due equally to Sir Ian McKellen and Michael Fassbender.
