T.G.I.F.: October 21, 2005

This little sequence is from the latest Young Avengers, and brightened my day reading it. That's what the T.G.I.F. is all about: brightened days. See ... he's trying to tell his parents he's a superhero, and, well ... click on it to see it full-size.

There's a thought that curbs my enthusiasm: that this trivializes and belittles what was an unspeakably traumatic experience for many. It's the fantasy of coming out, not the reality. But, frankly, shouldn't comics sometimes be about the best in people and what they can offer? And why should that be restricted to the cape-n-tights crowd? Why can't there be super-parents, too?
