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.
