Writer: Dan Raspier
Artist: Dev Madan
Publisher: DC Comics
Release Date: June 1997
Young Heroes in Love was an American comic book series published by DC Comics; it ran for 18 issues (including the #1,000,000 issue) from 1997 to 1998. An uncommon combination of the superhero and romance genres, it introduced two LGBT male characters into the DC Universe – Frostbite and Off-Ramp – who were depicted becoming a couple, which was considered groundbreaking for the time. Unusual for a comic set in an established publisher-owned universe, Dan Raspler and Dev Madan retained copyright to the stories and art.
