Spiderman comics to feature gay kiss on October cover


LGBTQ Nation

A comic classic, The Amazing Spiderman, will debut what is likely the first gay kiss to be featured on the cover of a mainstream comic book.

The comic, out this October by Brian Michael Bendis, is about a bummed out Spider-Man, on the outs with his buds, girlfriend, and the world at large.

The cover art by David LaFuente Garcia captures Spiderman feeling sorry for himself in a couples-crowded Central Park. Among them, two men embrace as they lean in, eyes closed, for a kiss. (Look center-right.)

Kudos to Marvel Comics for simply illustrating that the LGBT community is a normal part of everyday society.
