I know what I’m talking about. Took me a long time to learn this: There’s nothing wrong with going out and doing what you gotta do. Nothing at all. But when you’re lost, you come home. You don’t run away.
In The New Mutants: Superheroes and the Radical Imagination of American Comics, comics scholar Ramzi Fawaz traces Johnny’s history as a queer figure all the way back to his initial appearance Fantastic Four #1, so Johnny is not only currently queer,he has always implicitly been written that way.
Sometimes the hints were subtle, like in his Fantastic Four #309 trip to Fire Island, which was, at the time it was published, a notorious gay vacation spot.
It’s such a sweet and soft picture and yet it fills me with so much dread.
With any other pair of characters it would be a lovely moment. No really, try picture it. Humour me. Sakura and Tomoyo? Perfect. Tomoyo and Tomoyo? Lovely! Fai and Kurogane? Gay.
But Syaoran and Lava Lamp Guy?
Purely because any connection between is not a good thing for them. Or at least, probably not a good thing for Syaoran. I’m not sure if Lava Lamp guy benefits from this, or what he wants, or if he’s doing this on purpose.

Laura: I felt the same way when I first came here, Gabby.
Gabby: Why is it only raining if I look out of this window?
Laura: I have no idea.
Bellona: That cupboard just winked at me. It doesn’t have a face. But I know it winked at me.
Inanimate objects shouldn’t wink.
Doctor Strange: That’s a restrictive rule.
I’m sorry to keep you waiting. I just had to exorcise something.
Gabby: That’s a pretty weird sentence.
Doctor Strange: Not in this house.
There was a lot I loved about All-New Wolverine #4, but this exchange might be my favorite. Laura has taken Zelda, Bellona and Gabby to see Doctor Strange, and they’re all pretty weirded out by his house.
