GRACE HAD ISSUES WITH ICEMAN
Posted: 090919

Writer Sina Grace Recounts the Trials and Tribulation of His Iceman Run

Sina Grace received a lot of publicity and infamy for his run on Iceman, which explored the gay character's life in an ongoing series. On his Tumblr account Grace detailed his issues with Marvel Comics about the book behind the scenes. The post was meant to "discuss the realities of creating queer pop culture in a hostile or ambivalent environment." Grace posted that between Icemanís cancellation and its revival, Marvel reached out to him because they noticed threatening behavior on his Twitter account. He stated that Marvel wanted him to send proof of the threats but when he talked to an editor all he got was advice on his to handle trolls on line which is not what Grace wanted to hear. He wanted Marvel to give him other work that would prove he wasnít just a diversity hire but aside from a six-page Wolverine story Grace didnít get anything else. He told of an editor that suggested that Iceman wouldn't survive "if it were 'too gay'" and the book was likely to be cancelled anyway as are most X-Men solo series. Grace wanted to talk to the New York Times but when he did Marvel made it clear that all of his interview requests had to be pre-approved and Marvel had to be able to read the piece first. The book did end up being cancelled.
