A new graphic novel features a queer superhero with a historical twist

 

Portland alt-comics heavyweights Barry Deutsch (Hereville) and Becky Hawkins (French Toast Comix) have teamed up to create SuperButch, the adventures of a lesbian superhero and the citizens whose lives she transforms.  Set in the 1940's when many gay Americans led double lives and many African-Americans "passed" as white, SuperButch is a rip-roaring mashup of historical fiction, noir, and comics mythology.

Becky and Barry joined S.W. Conser in April of 2018 to talk about the real heroes that inspired the characters in SuperButch, and about the personal experiences that led them to tackle this epic project.
