The clue to the next big bad lies in Spike's mind. This can only be fun.

Green Lantern and crew race to pick up Rip Hunter and the Time Masters as the multiverse implodes!

Evidently they are not releasing the cover to this issue. I wonder why...

Amazing X-Men #19
Can Colossus take out the new host of Cyttorak?

Daken takes center stage as he hunts the monster who stole his healing. X-23 joins up, but is it to help her clone's-son or stop him? And why would she want to stop him?

SuperQueeros! for April 15th, 2015

It's blast from the past week! The Lumberjanes have an origin issue, Convergence dredges up our fav 'queero's of today and yesterday, and Mystique puts back in motion the revival of the ultimate blast from the past... SuperQueeros: all that's lesbian, gay, bisexual, transexual, transgender, and queer in comics today!

Lumberjanes #13
It's Secret Origins time! See how the 'janes first made each other's ajanetance. #notsorry

Convergence #2
Now on Earth 1, can Green Lantern access the Green? And can the White restore Sam back to life?

Convergence: Suicide Squad #1
Harley's not on this version of the team, but her best girl, Poison Ivy, is!

Wolverines #14
Mystique starts to pull together the threads of her plan to resurrect her girlfriend... but then her two key players go missing!

Queer Adjacent:
Ms. Marvel gets a crush! Dauterman's Thor takes on the Destroyer! And Aguirre-Sacasa's (Chilling Adventures of) Sabrina gets an issue #2!

SuperQueeros! for April 8th, 2015

It's Convergence! And that means all your old favorite characters and stories are coming back to the DCU! Let's see how many of them are... SuperQueeros: all that's lesbian, gay, bisexual, transexual, transgender, and queer in comics today!

Convergence Question #1

Woo-hoo! Renee Montoya is back! And, much like her Gotham incarnation, she's teaming up with Harvey Dent to take down... Harvey Dent? It's two times the Two Face (It's Four Face?) as the best incarnation of The Question returns to the page!

Convergence #1
It's so weird how the two publishers are all the time paralleling each other... Well, just as Marvel is pitting all sorts of realities against each other in this summer's Secret Wars event, so too is DC cherry picking from their best and most iconic runs, smashing them together, and calling it a sales-voted consensus reality TRUTH. Anyway, by definition this is the coolest of all possible fictional universes, and from the cover it looks like all the most interesting Earth 2 characters made it out alive or magically reanimated!

Convergence Harley Quinn #1
Remember Gotham City Sirens? When Harley and Ivy were living together with their pet Catwoman, just like a real queer couple? It's BACK! and they are fighting.... Captain Carrot?

Rat Queens #10
Meanwhile, while the Big Two are smashing all their action figures together in two separate sets of super wars, Rat Queens is taking a breaking to pick up all the pieces that they already smashed against some Elder Gods. Less than three, Rat Queens. Less than three.

And, just an editorial aside, if you are a big Stephanie Brown-as-Batgirl fan (that last issue was SO GOOD) or a fan of Cassie Cain under the cowl, then you will love Convergence Batgirl #1, where both Bats are back! Plus, Tim Drake as Red Robin tags along to provide some beefcake.

SuperQueeros! for April 1st, 2015

It's the final chapter of a lot of DC titles as we near Convergence. Will your favorite 'queeros survive? The first step will be to get through this month! SuperQueeros: All that's lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender in comics today!

Batwoman Annual #40
Kate gets one more issue before she rides off into the sunset, and it's an annual! See how the creative team bids adieu to one of the most revolutionary queer characters of the millennium.

Batman Eternal #52
Meanwhile, Kate's ex Maggie bows out too. That's right, it's the final issue of Batman Eternal!

Earth 2 World's End #26 (and Convergence #0)
Is Green Lantern dead?! It looks like Allan opens the issue by getting creamed by Darkseid and then performing the ultimate Lunar Dance to resurrect all the other Earth 2 heroes. But is this truly the end of the only gay Green Lantern? And, as this series closes out, does he have a role in the upcoming Convergence event?

Teen Titans Annual #1
The teens clean up Superboy's mess. Woohoo? At least no one is dying before Convergence.

Wolverines #13
Now that Deadpool has decided to become 'Poolverine and join this book, does Mystique have any chance of getting Destiny back?

Harley Quinn #16
There's a new gang in town: the Gang of Harleys!

Gotham Academy Endgame #1
The girls camp out and tell each other scary stories about the Joker!

Wonder Woman #40
The new team's first tale comes to a dramatic conclusion: Diana vs Donna!

SuperQueeros! for March 25th, 2015

For everyone who was wondering, I did some Gotham Academy research and I have a handle on the #queerness of its cast. Plus, I go a little crazy with the 21st century's first rhetorical device, the #hashtag. #SuperQueeros: all that's lesbian, gay, bisexual, transexual, transgender, and queer in comics today!

Earth 2 World's End #25
Green Lantern takes his last shot at saving Earth 2. Can Alan and the Kryptonians emerge victorious? #UseThePowerOfLove

Wolverines #12
Fantomelle's mission comes to an end. Meanwhile, Fang and Lady Deathstrike make their alliances known in Sharp and Ogun's battle for control of their shared body! #FantomelleRules #NewArmForDaken2015

Amazing X-Men #18
Now that The Living Monolith is also The Unstoppable Juggernaut, it's time for the team-up 50 years in the making: Colussus and Cain Marko! (At least, that's what the solicits seem to be implying. Also, did you see how Cain Marko punched Colussus in the same issue that Crossbones breaks his hand on Colossus' jaw? So Cain must have some sort of residual strength, right?) #MoreNorthstarPlease

Uncanny X-Men #32
This title is about to go through a metamorphosis as Cyc sends all the students to the Jean Grey school and teams up with his brother, Mutant Two-Face, to be criminals on the run. So one last chance to see Morph before he fades into the background? #ScottSummersIsAD!ck

Morning Glories #44
How will this season's intricate plans unfold this week? Hopefully we'll get some more Guillaume and Tower Ball! #BasketballShorts

Wicked + Divine #9
Bring on the god-maker! Ananke drops by. #NoBig

Gotham Academy #6
So I think the 'queero in this comic is maybe Maps? She definitely hasn't picked a sexuality as a first year, so it's hard to say, but she's awesome and she took her cute roommate to the school dance so.... Oh, and Olive fights Batman for guardianship of Killer Croc. #AverageDay

SuperQueeros! for March 18, 2015

I can't decide if the theme this week is "the return of faces from your past" or "sudden changes in location", so I'm picking both! SuperQueeros: all that's lesbian, gay, bisexual, transexual, transgender, and queer in comics today!

Lumberjanes #12
After a total cute-fest in an alternate reality (Didn't Willow do something similar when she was hooking up with that Snake Goddess? Do all lesbian relationships develop in other dimnesions?), Mol and Mal are trying to find a way home. Will they be able to make it back and be the deus ex machina that their fellow 'janes need?

Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 10 #13
It's murder-solvin' time! Plus, Andrew gets some relationship advice! And what's this on the cover? The aforementioned Snake Goddess ex-gf of our very ow Willow Rosenberg?

Batwoman #40
Now that Batwoman's team of Unknowns is assembled, it's time for them to bring the fight to Morgan LeFaye! But, as we learned five months ago, this battle ends up taking our (anti-)heroes to space. I wonder when that happens...

Teen Titans #8
Superboy returns! However, when the solicit says that this "rocks" everyone's world, I am assuming that they do not mean it in the same way that my Superboy/Bunker OTP brain interprets it.

Batgirl #40 and Batgirl Endgame #1
Babs' past comes back to haunt her in her solo series, while in her one shot we get the promise of an epic Burnside Bridge battle!

Wolverines #11
Laura's crush is revealed, and the fight for Shogun's body continues!

Earth 2 World's End #24
Power Girl takes on Darkseid! If she falls... I'm sure we'll get her back in Convergence. So, you know, it's the standard stakes with this battle.

Batman Eternal is wrapping up their many story threads, starting in this week's issue, #50. There have been some queer characters in this title, so I'm assuming that there will be some cameos. Storm #9 comes out this week, and it features one of the best X-team-ups: Storm and Gambit, being all theives and stuff! So, no queeros, but still a good comic.

SuperQueeros! for March 11th, 2015

A teenage girl, an evil planet, a golden model Earth... death is coming from the oddest places this week in the lives of our... SuperQueeros: all that's lesbian, gay, bisexual, transexual, transgender, and queer in comics today!

Rachel Rising #32
A copycat killer has wandered into the sights of Rachel and her team. Meanwhile, intrepid serial killer Zoe sets her sights on a sexual predator. 

Earth 2: World's End #23
The world is DOOMED! Or, at least that's my prediction with all these Convergence solicits floating around... That and the fact that the Earth is getting totally eaten by Apokolips. That's also pretty damning.

New Suicide Squad #8
With Harley about to be crushed by the Daily Planet, will the team be able to keep its roster from shrinking even further? Well, the solicit says that there is about to be a superhuman revolt, so it seems like a good time and a great place to find some new recruits!

Wolverines #10
Man, it sure stank that Daken had a new arm and eye for, like, one beer before Fang took it all away again! And Mystique's plan has sure been put on hold while Fang plays with the Wolvies. Speaking of, Fang and newly-good Sabretooth go off to have some character developing adventures this issue. Meanwhile, Ogun and Sharp square off for control of their shared body! Plus, Fantomelle and Culpepper's continue their adventures in thieving.
