An announcement at London’s Kapow! comic convention has fans buzzing with speculation.
DC Comics co-publisher Dan DiDio stated that a previously existing straight character in the DC universe will soon be reintroduced as gay.
DiDio previously suggested that any additional LGBT characters in the recently rebooted DC universe would be new characters. But according to DC’s Senior VP of Sales Bob Wayne, the publisher’s policy on the matter has “evolved.”
In other news, many are expecting a major LGBT announcement from Marvel Comics tomorrow on ‘The View.’ A recent gay storyline in Archie Comics has been hugely popular, prompting sell-outs and the first reprint in Archie history.
