A Month of Good LGBT Comics – Enigma

In conjunction with Prism Comics, the preeminent website for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgendered (LGBT) comics and creators, every day this month I will be detailing one good comic book/graphic novel with LGBT themes.

Here‘s an archive of the featured works so far!

Today we look at a great, and often overlooked, Vertigo work by Peter Milligan and Duncan Fegredo that Greg Burgas is going to unknowingly assist on!

I began writing a piece on Enigma, but then I saw that Greg had already done one of his “Comics You Should Own” pieces on Enigma, and, well, it just seemed silly to go on about the book when Greg had done such an in-depth look at the series (an incredible look at identity and sexuality through the familiar tropes of superheroes).

So, well, here is a link to Greg’s piece!

Lazybones.

Man, I miss Good Milligan…

Here’s hoping he’s back in form for Hellblazer.

PS! THE ENIGMA PIECE LINKED TO HERE CONTAINS SPOILERS!!! SPOILERS!!!!!

(Or else we’ll never here the end of it.)

Anyway, my favorite superhero comic of the last 40 years. Good pick.

Enigma is one of the very best comics that Veritigo published. Ever. It’s a shame that Milligan is so often overlooked.

Great book. Peter Milligan has always been one of the best writers in the business when he’s in his element. It’s just a shame he keeps doing superhero stuff which he’s not nearly as good at.
