SuperQueeros! for November 26, 2014

Not a lot of comics this week, but what there are feature a few familiar 'queeros that we haven't seen in a while.  SuperQueeros: all that's lesbian, gay, bisexual, transexual, transgender, and queer in comics today!

Amazing X-Men #13
Finally, some Anole! Nightcrawler and Northstar leap to the rescue as Anole's deepest fears run amok in NYC! But what could a perennial fan favorite like Anole truly fear?

Earth 2: World's End #8
Constantine joins the fight! Now if only he and Alan Scott would share some sexual tension, all my hellblazingest dreams would come true!

Prophet Strikefile #2
More of John Ka's friends and enemies make their debut in this encyclopedia of the Prophet-verse.

SuperQueeros! for November 19th, 2014

Last week may have been light on superqueeros, but this week the law of conservation of queers means that we've got a ton of... SuperQueeros: all that's lesbian, gay, bisexual, transexual, transgender, and queer in comics today!

Lumberjanes #8
The Lumberjanes have reached the end of their mystery, and the answer is... sibling rivalry between ancient Greek twin gods! Will they be able to settle the rivalry, or at least come out alive?

Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Season 10 #9
Sunnydale homecoming turns sour when the crew realizes that Andrew is in need of some help defending the reality-defining book of Vampyr!

Batwoman #36
Kate meets up - and teams up - with Jason Blood, a.k.a. The Demon!

Teen Titans #4
The teens meet up with the mastermind behind the team of operatives and cyborgs they've been fighting since issue one. What commentary on America's youth and its relationship to adulthood will this villain represent?

Avengers and X-Men: Axis #6
The heroes and villains are at each other's throats, and the solicit promises the birth of the Astonishing Avengers.  But who are these new Avengers? Perhaps the villains mentioned in the solicit: Quicksilver, Magneto, Mystique, and Loki?

Morning Glories #42
This issue marks an explicit DECLARATION! (...I hear.)

X-Force #12
Fantomex takes down his own team because narcissism! He's kind of Deadpool-ing out of narrative plausibility these days, eh?

Earth 2: World's End #7
The war continues! I've been assuming that Green Lantern is in this, but he hasn't made any of the covers yet, so... who knows. Maybe you? Let me know, if you do!

And some possibly queer-inclusive issues: Multiversity: Pax Americana #1.3, Wonder Woman's post-Azzarello relaunch in Wonder Woman #36, and Uncanny X-Men #28.

SuperQueeros! for November 12th, 2014

It's a pretty light week for superqueeros, so I'm going to spotlight some interesting titles too. But "light" does not mean "totally bereft"; we do have a couple of... SuperQueeros: all that's lesbian, gay, bisexual, transexual, transgender, and queer in comics today!

Batgirl #36
It's time for Babs to hit the books! But just as classes get going, Batgirl has to tangle with the Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen of katana-wielding motorcycle assassins! (They have their own clothing line. And one of them is married to an older Frenchman. I assume. Because they're twins.)

Earth 2: Worlds End #6
The fight against the forces of Apokolips continues! Man, once you un-bottle those BoomTubes, they just don't stop vomiting hell-spawn onto your doorstep!

And now for some cool stuff I saw in my research: Kitchen #1 is an entry in the gangster genre, but for this mob, all the heads are women. Klarion #2 has a kiss that "changes everything" and, even though I'm 99.9% sure it's from a lady, I'm crossing my fingers so much for a gentleman-demon! All New Ultimates #10 has a Bombshell cover, Batman Eternal #32 gets back to The Spoiler, and Thor #2 continues the awesome new direction for the series! Oh, and speaking of diversity in comics, All New Captain America #1 is out this week! And Sam's sidekick is Nomad!

SuperQueeros! for November 5th, 2014

Red and green this week as Kevin Keller starts celebrating Christmas, Green Lantern fights the fires of Apokolips' Furies, and Agent Brand and Marvel Girl find out secrets of their pasts. SuperQueeros: all that's lesbian, gay, bisexual, transexual, transgender, and queer in comics today!

Archie #661
It's Kevin Keller's first encounter with Jingles, Riverdale's tiniest elf with the biggest attitude! Of course, since I only started reading Archie because of Kevin, it's mine too, so I'm relying entirely on the solicit for that judgment of Jingles. Novice though I am, I'm pretty certain that Jingle's annoying 'tude is big enough to put Kevin's life - or at least his pre-Thanksgiving Christmas issue - in danger!

Earth 2 #28 // Earth 2: World's End #5
Apokolips' Four Furies are burning Earth 2 around them, and Green Lantern is cornered by an old enemy: Solomon Grundy (re-born this Wednesday)!

Chew #44
The solicit says that this issue will make you physically ill. So... buy it?

Hack/Slash: Son of Samhain #5
The conclusion of bisexual Cassie hack's search for a new slasher partner.

X-Men #21
Family secrets galore are revealed this issue as the X-Men search for some deep space denouement!

SuperQueeros! For October 29th, 2014

It's Halloween once more! I better see some of you dressed as the God of War, Diana, this year! SuperQueeros: all that's lesbian, gay, bisexual, transexual, transgender, and queer in comics today!
Wonder Woman #35
It had to come to an end eventually. That's right, it's the grand finale of Brian Azzarello's character-defining run on Wonder Woman wraps up this week. Diana is all set to defeat her older half-brother while her little Togepi kid is revving up to fulfill his prophecy. But what of the "surprises" the spicier speaks of? And what status quo will we be left with when this issue closes? Who will it be on the throne of Olympus?

Rachel Rising #29
Next month Rachel finds out her killer. This month, though, she has to deal with a cult. Wacky!

Harbinger Omegas #3
Toyo and Peter go head to head!

Saga #24
Alana's descent into drug-fueled acting continues! Plus "The Brand"! And "Sweet Boy"!

SuperQueeros! for October 22nd, 2014

Halloween is fast approaching, and all the comics are getting in the spirit, starting with BuffySuperQueeros: all that's lesbian, gay, bisexual, transexual, transgender, and queer in comics today!

Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Season 10 #8
And your Halloween present from the Scooby gang is... a return to Sunnydale! And there's a magical, monsterous party going down at the Hellmouth this year, thanks to Willow and the gang's re-magik-ing of Earth. I wonder what everyone is going as? 

Earth 2: World's End #3
The War for the World continues, and masks start making a big difference! Under the helm of Dr. Fate, what are Nabu's intentions, now that he has control?

Multiversity: The Just #1
Reality gets in costume with thus celebrity superheo What If...? when Grant Morrison's multiverse-spanning narrative hits Earth-16. But the real question is... who's going to come out on the cover of People? (Fair Warning: It may be no one. [But there is that gay Flash character in the main Multiversity arc, so I can't imagine they wouldn't pass up the opportunity...])

Wicked + Divine #5
The solicit only says... "Showtime". Spooky.

Amazing X-Men #12
Now that the Wendi-demic has spread to US soil, Northstar and his twin sister are the only things standing in the way of us and furred out costumes for everyone!

Avengers and X-men: Axis #3
Mystique has joined the fight against the Red Onslaught, so this book is relevant to our list! I wonder who she is going to dress as to fight giant adamantium Sentinels? Also, where did that much adamantium come from? I thought this was supposed to be a rare metal.

She-Hulk #9
Shulkie and team join up with Steve Rogers against their ultimate courtroom adversary: the Daredevil! (The Halloween tie-in is that he's a devil. Of sorts.)

X-Force #11
Psylocke and crew have to try to recruit the mutant version of The Silence. Can they remember to do it? And will anyone be wearing a TARDIS dress? And can it be Dr. Nemesis?

SuperQueeros! for October 15th, 2014

Look at that gorge-o Kevin Wada cover! DC is, once again, killing it with the queer-inclusivity this week, plus we get Noelle Stevenson's Lumberjanes, and I missed a horror comic from last week! SuperQueeros: all that's lesbian, gay, bisexual, transexual, transgender, and queer in comics today!

Lumberjanes #7
Now that the 'janes have the knowledge they've been seeking, will they be able to get past a fickle foe from their past? That's right, it's the terrible return of... The Boys Camp! (Plus, have you guys seen? You can pre-order a copy of Nimona now!)

Batwoman #35
Kate finds herself in the company of Gotham's baddest bogeypeople as she joins forces with Red Alice, Ragman, the Demon, and Clayface. But what could cause the city's favorite socialite vigilante to join up with her sworn enemies? That's just what this issue seeks to unearth!

Teen Titans #3
A Kevin Wada cover?! Sweet-as! Oh, and the action centers around Raven this issue when her night off turns into a throw-down!

Earth 2 World's End #2
Enter the first horseman, the woman known only as... WAR!

PLUS, last week's The October Faction #1 implied either that the son is gay, or that he just handles homophobic bullying like a superstar. So... I'm counting him! Also, Morph may make an appearance in Uncanny X-Men #27, but Cyke is the focus of the solicit. And, while the new "best there is at what she does", Kamala Kahn, finds out some more about her past in Ms. Marvel #9, the old "best there is at what he does" faces his grim demise in Death of Wolverine #4. That's right, Wolverine dies! Again. Presumably not to be resurrected by the Hand this time. Can the Hand resurrect you twice? Also, how does that work? Is Northstar just a magically animated corpse, or did his temporary death have literally no consequences?
