“They are not heroes because they are perfect. They are heroes because they must overcome their imperfections,” says a narrator, as Yara Flor/Wonder Woman weeps, until her pegasus bonks her with his head. “Stop, Jerry!

Talking of queers, this arc of The Dreaming: Waking Hours is popping into that one meme. Each and every queer buddy staff has: An exiled angel, a speaking raven, a toddler gargoyle, a trans sorceress, her himbo boyfriend who loves her such a lot he we could her get dressed him in mesh shirts, and a nightmare who fell in love with a monk he noticed as soon as in a dream.

A ways Sector wins the award for many eerily prescient — however most likely no longer strangely prescient, for the reason that it’s written by way of sci-fi creator N.Okay. Jemisin — comedian at the stands nowadays.

Hellions #9
