Young Avengers Presents

Finally, after too much waiting and even more uneasy confusion, there is a date for the next Young Avengers installment, called Young Avengers Presents We have six issues to look forward to.

For those of you who have no idea what I'm wittering on about, the Young Avengers are a Marvel supergroup based on teen versions of Captain America, Iron Man, Thor, Hulk, Ant-man/Giant-man, Hawkeye and Quicksilver. The hook? Hulkling and Wiccan are a couple. And they are both boys. Great plot, great writing, great art, and the sexuality of the young couple is handled without fuss, sensation or stereotyping. It's a fantastic step towards homosexuality in mainstream media.

Is it January yet?
