Marvel Comics
clarifies position on warning labels

Joe Quesada, editor in chief of Marvel Comics, has announced that Marvel Comics will not use any warning labelsfor comics with gay characters, reports Newsrama."It's given us the opportunity to spark some internal discussions and revisit this issue, especially in light of the fact that we havecharacters like Freedom Ring and that we've had more gay and lesbian characters appearing in Marvel Comics than ever before. Inmany ways, the old policy over the last few years has just sort of faded away, so let me just say that there is no longer any policy,"Quesada told Newsrama last week.

Earlier this month at Wizard World Chicago, Marvel Comics announced that no ongoing solo series starring gay or lesbian characterswould go out without a warning label. Quesada said that decision came about because of the negative media attention Marvel receivedfor their 2003 series featuring the Western character Rawhide Kid and his sexuality. (The Advocate)
