Jim Cheung, um dos autores do livro “Vingadores, a cruzada das crianças” (Salvat), comentou nesta sexta-feira (6) acerca da polêmica envolvendo Crivella. O entrave se deu após o político ordenar o recolhimento da arte. Crivella afirmou que o HQ tem “conteúdo sexual para menores”. Desse modo, segundo ele, é preciso proteger as crianças e resguardar valores familiares.

Nesse sentido, segundo Cheung, ele “só mostrou um momento de carinho de dois personagens”. O artista ressaltou ainda que a comunidade LGBT está aqui para ficar.”A comunidade LGBTQ está aqui para ficar, eu não tenho nada além de amor e apoio para aqueles que continuam lutando por validação e para que suas vozes sejam ouvidas“.

“Foi com muita surpresa que soube hoje que o prefeito do Rio de Janeiro decidiu proibir a venda do meu livro (com Allan Heinberg), “Avengers: The Crusade Children”, por ter suposto material inapropriado“, continuou.


Espero que o povo bonito do Brasil, nação maravilhosamente diversa e orgulhosa, enxergue além desse “barulho” político e foque na luz e nas maneiras de se unir, em vez de ajudar a plantar as sementes do conflito e da divisão”, finaliza.

Teddy & Billy (2019) . It was with great surprise today, to learn that the mayor of Rio de Janeiro decided to ban the sale of my (and Allan Heinberg's) book, Avengers:The Children's Crusade, for alleged inappropriate material. . For those not familiar with the work from 2010, the controversy involves a kiss between two male characters. . Now I don't know what prompted the mayor to seek out a work that is almost a decade old, and that had already been on sale for many years, but I can say honestly, that there was no hidden motivation or agendas behind the work in promoting any particular lifestyle, nor targeting any unique audience. The scene merely depicts a tender moment between two characters who are in an established relationship. . As an artist, my passion is to tell stories; stories of great heroism, compassion and love, with as authentic and diverse characters as possible. Characters that depict every walk of life and color, whether they be black or white, brown, yellow or green. . The fact that this book, from almost a decade ago, is now being drawn into the spotlight by the mayor perhaps only highlights how out of touch he might be with the current times. The LGBTQ community is here to stay, and I have nothing but love and support for those who continue to struggle for validity and a voice to be heard. . I hope the beautiful people of Brazil, the wonderfully diverse and proud nation, will see through this political 'noise' and place their focus on the light, and on ways to unite, rather than help sow the seeds of conflict and division . #TeddyAltman #Hulkling #BillyKaplan #Wiccan #YoungAvengers #AvengersChildrensCrusade #MarvelComics #Marvel #Comics #MCU #pencils #pencildrawing #process #JimCheung #LoveNotHate #LGBTQ
