Off-Panel: July 29, 2015

Our daily round-up of news around the comics space, from the gutters and beyond.

“Today marks the release of King’s Quest: A Knight to Remember, but considering it’s been seventeen years since the release of the last game in this classic adventure series, there’s a good chance that a few actual grown adults out there have no familiarity with the adventures of King Graham and his family.”

It’s not even really comics adjacent but I’m so excited about this that I don’t care.

“Last night on Twitter, the actor posted a somber teaser image for the 2017 sequel to”The Wolverine,” accompanied by the hashtag #OneLastTime. “My last time putting on the claws,” he wrote. “What do you want to see happen? 50 words or less. I’ll read as many as I can.””

Love this.

“The following artists and creatives identify as queer, among other labels, like, for example, comic, illustrator, storyteller and writer. They defy rigid categorization in both life and work, weaving wonderfully unique and sex-positive tales about everything from college parties and intergalactic adventures to a criminal potato. If the following artists show us anything, it’s that there’s no one way to be queer.”

I love this list.
