Alters

27 Sep

So there’s this awesome-sounding new comic hitting the stands called the Alters. Considering how many comic books out there that starred superheroes and mutants, what makes this one unique?

Well, for starters, it may be the first mainstream comic to feature a transgender protagonist.

I’m pretty loud about diversity of all kinds on this blog, and it’s exciting to see this comic, published by AfterShock, take that leap to represent transgender people, to help normalize the concept to the public.

It’s not just about the protagonist either. According to the article, there are plenty of other representations¬†as well, such as “a character dealing with cerebral palsy, another who will be dealing with depression, and yet another who is homeless.”

And it’s superheros. Who doesn’t love superheros?

I’m hoping to see a copy of the first issue in Barnes and Noble the next time Rachel and I go! Anyone else thinking of checking it out? Perhaps you already have?
