Jonah Goldberg brought this to my attention. CNN reports that Marvel Comics is launching a new gay comic about a character called--I’m not making this up--"The Rawhide Kid." The First Edition will be "Rawhide Kid: Slap Leather." This surely will inspire a college course such as "homosexual themes in comic literature." In this class, the professor will explore the wearing of tights and the use of names such as "Superman," "Batman," and "the boy wonder."
