The Oath Anthology is a graphic novel with a few different stories featuring Queer superheroes. Ranging from lighthearted and comedic, all the way to heavy and dramatic. Each one tells a different tale and shows off various writing and art styles.
This is a book that I backed on Kickstarter quite a while ago and can only say the wait is well worth it. The LGBTQ community rarely gets any Super love and this comic really shows how interesting and downright intriguing a non-binary superhero could be. Now I may know quite a bit about Marvel and DC but I don’t know everything so if there is a Super in any of their comics that is Queer, please let me know so I can check them out.
Because this is a bunch of small stories put into one book you don’t get a lot in the ways of character, this is more about experiencing each one and then letting the entire thing just sink in. Some make you smile, others make you frown, there was even one story about a hero couple and their son picking his first super suit that got me a little teary-eyed.
As someone who is still slowly discovering themselves I can firmly say that Oath is a wonderful collection of sweet and heart-wrenching stories that can resonate with you if given the chance. So happy to add it to my collection and excited to follow the artists that wrote each one and watch their future works.
And, as always, I hope you enjoy as much as I do.
