Aspen Comics to Introduce Black Trans Former NFL Player In New Series
Ever heard of Aspen Comics? No? Well, now might be the time to pay attention, because they’re introducing a new universe within their comics, as well as a new and unique character.
Earlier today, Bleeding Cool reported that the California-based comic book company would soon be releasing a new comic featuring their newly built universe with the release of Revelations. As well as that, Aspen will be releasing a new series titled No World (by writer Scott Lobdell and artist Jordan Gunderson), which will feature a gun wielding, black trans ex-NFL player. Here’s the cover of the new comic book, featuring this currently unnamed character:
When asked for details about the character in question, writer Scott Lobdell responded simply by posting this tweet:
Lobdell is no stranger to creating trans characters, what with introducing fans to the not-so-welcomed Suzie Su in Red Hood & The Outlaws (2011), but we’re hoping this is a character people can get behind, because let’s face it: just from the cover alone, this looks like a super badass heroine. We’ll just have to wait until the comic is release to find out exactly who we’re dealing with.
