    Dylan, I’d highly recommend you check out Harley Quinn (The animated DC series).

    +Clever and progressive writing
    +Great characters
    +Gay rep done right
    +Fast paced comedy (ala Venture Bros./Archer)
    +Harley goes through sincere character arcs that are engaging

    Things I figure you won’t like:
    -Not necessarily for kids, not sure if OA is only about that. This is a show with comically graphic violence and liberal use of wordy dirties. That said–really awesome how good the writing makes up for it. The cursing is never put on a pedastal–it’s just off hand how villans talk to one another.
    -Not sure what else you wouldn’t like from that. Oh. There’s a lot of continuity references to previous DC works like Batman:TAS, Suicide Squad, etc. But also obscure pop culture references like Frankie Munez from Malcom in the Middle. Just random stuff that makes you smile if you even vaguely remember it.
