Tyler’s Recommendation…
Black Monday Murders #6
“Johnathan Hickman and Tomm Coker’s stellar book is back this week. This round we discover the occult reasons behind the market crash. Weaving mystery and occult horror with the behind the scenes power structure of financial empires, a new edition to this tale is always a treat.”

Josh’s Recommendation …
PowerManIronFist

Power Man and Iron Fist #1
“A new series for Marvel’s best bromantic duo?! It’s almost surprising that they’ve gone so long without a series in Marvel’s various relaunches, if each volume of the series didn’t have the same success as ‘Heroes for Hire’. But with Luke Cage and Iron Fist poised to each have their own Netflix shows, along with David Walker’s writing, this seems like the series that will catch on with readers and outlast the previous volume.”

HERE ARE SOME ISSUES THAT WILL NOT DISAPPOINT.

 
Tyler’s Recommendations: 
Beauty #4
“Jeremy Haun and Jason A. Hurley’s tale of a future where obsession over physical appearance has reached frightening extremes has been fantastic. Part horror, part detective mystery, part social commentary, this comic tackles every aspect with aplomb. Paired with Haun’s evocative and moody artwork, this is another Image title that belongs on your pull.” Continue reading Indubitable Issues and Pull List (11/18/15)

Asexual Representation in Fiction

Sex and sexuality is one of the most ubiquitous topics in media. It’s used to titillate, intrigue, get people’s attention, and sell. Almost every movie needs a love interest, no matter how little sense it makes in the narrative.

We may have had two conversations on screen, but since we are both hot,  we are totally in love forever! From Seventh Son.

But what about people who aren’t all that interested in sex? What if the male/female gaze does nothing for them? Well, it all looks kinda strange.

Asexuality is an orientation where someone has little to no interest in sex. However, not every asexual is repulsed by sex, so you can still have a libido and not feel sexual attraction. It’s a wide spectrum, including homo/hetero/bi/pan romantic aces* (asexuals that are interested in relationships, but not really interested in sex), aromantic aces (asexuals not interested in sex or relationships), grey aces (asexuals who experience sexual attraction infrequently or not strongly enough for them to be sure that it is attraction), and are closely related to demisexuals (people who only feel sexual attraction when they have a close emotional bond with someone).  Since asexuality is defined by the absence of something, it’s pretty diverse, so one would think we would have a lot of asexual characters to match the spectrum’s diversity.

He’s just special in all kinds of ways. He’s not only a great heart, but he also has some special powers. He’s much stronger than a normal person. He’s much faster.”
