Gender fluidity in comics

xxmenOver at Comic Alliance, they have a wonderful article on gender-fluid characters in comics. The references are a tad old, but that’s sort of the point. The image to the left is not from the article, which can be found here: http://comicsalliance.com/sci-fi-fantasy-gender-fluid-characters/ but from a wonderful but NSFW source which can be found here: http://tgfa.org/

771814-genderchange_1Things like this used to be quite common in comics in the 80’s and 90’s. It was pretty normal to have stories where Superman was either turned into a woman or ended up in a universe where everyone’s genders were flipped. Why? Because, as some REALLY like to point out, Comic Books Are WEIRD!
