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.

Prism Comics
, 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.
