Jonathan Riggs is my guest for this hour of Mr. Media. I began the show with some trepidation -- I was late getting back from the bank for one thing and almost missed the show entirely! -- and I know absolutely nothing about the narrow market for gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgendered comics. Hell, when I was a teen reading comics, I didn't know there was any such thing as "gay." And it was only a few years ago someone told me the backstory on the name of the band "Queen." What planet am I on, anyway? But this was actually a fascinating interview and Riggs -- the editor of both the 2008 Prism Comics: Your Guide to LGBT Comics and Instinct magazine -- made for a great guest. , incidentally, is a nonprofit organization that supports lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgendered (LGBT) comics, creators, and readers. Besides publishing the annual resource guide, Prism Comics hopes to acquaint comics readers with a wide range of creators who present good stories that readers can really relate to and that reflect their own experiences.
