First issue in a new comic series about Robin Hood. The hook is that the merry men all enjoy sex with men. (Modern readers will see some of them as gay and some as bi; these are not concepts that existed at the time in the way we understand them. These were behaviors, not identities.) They live in a band in the woods in order to keep themselves safe from the Sherriff of Nottingham, who, among other dastardlinesses, wants to make life wretched for men such as Robin and his friends. This issue is mostly about introducing the concept and the characters (one of whom is Scarlett, who is trans*), but we do get a hint that Scarlett's arrival in Sherwood is going to spur Robin to the kind of action (savior of the poor etc) that we associate with the character. What little comics reading I do, I do in trade, but this series might prompt me to pick up each issue as it comes out--not so much because I can't wait for five or so issues to hit a trade edition (although, I am pleased with the first issue and want to know more) but because I am *in* for a queered version of this tale and I want to support the title. And I gather that in the world of comics, things like buying individual issues and especially ordering issues before they've come out has a huge impact on whether titles carry on. I may actually have to go to the comics shop and set up a pull list. *grumbles* Anyway, recommended. ( )
