Reading comics while being transgender is, as you might imagine, a discordant experience. For a medium that purportedly celebrates stories outside of the norm, featuring weird and wonderful casts of mutants and superheroes and the like, you’re more than likely to find a cast of white, able bodied, cisgender and, usually, male characters staring back […]
