SuperQueeros! for July 6th, 2016

It's a quiet week for superqueeros. Come see who's showing up on your comic stand this week in... SuperQueeros: all that's lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer in comics today!

Civil War II: X-Men #2
Storm and the Extraordinary X-Men have joined Captain Marvel's pro-Ulysses side of the Civil War.

SuperQueeros! for June 29th, 2016

Last week I left off two really awesome comics: Life with Kevin #1 and Bitch Planet #8! SuperQueeros: all that's lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer in comics today!
Life with Kevin #1

Last time we had a "Life with..." series, it was "Life with Archie," and Kevin was a supporting character who had been to war and gotten hitched. However, in the post-reboot Archie-verse, the whimsical what-if book about adult Archie characters is headlined by Riverdale's resident gay! The first order of business for Kevin upon landing a grown-up, eponymous title? Move into his first New York apartment, of course!
(Please note that this book is only available digitally at the time of publishing.)

Bitch Planet #8
Kam was so busy being reunited with her sister that I overlooked this title last week. Their done hugging it out now, though, so I'm mentioning it here!

Steven Universe and the Crystal Gems #4
The case of the glass ghost comes to a close! Will the Gems be able to contain the beast?

Black Panther #3
The Dora Milaje and Black Panther continue their fight against the Midnight Angels. But who is really fighting for the freedom of Wakanda?

Jem and the Holograms #16
The Dark Gems are back with their bands and Silica is on the ropes. That means there's only one thing left to do: an epic duet between the Misfits and the Holograms!

Extraordinary X-Men #11
The X-men continue to battle Colossus' Horsemen for the future of mutantkind! Is this the end of all future mutants?

Grayson Annual #3
Dick celebrates his third annual with a series of team-ups, including one with Constantine!

Teen Titans Annual #2
The Titans make the same mistake they made at the end of last year: they take a night off and all the party goers turn into rabid animals! Okay, that last part is new, but the Titans should really try staying home for a game night instead sometime...

Uncanny X-Men #9
The team continues their missions from last issue. Will they solve the enigma of Archangel before he becomes Apocalypse (again)?

Wednesday, June 22, 2016

SuperQueeros! for June 22nd, 2016

This week gives us dimension-hopping, training a covert ops team of teens, and Civil War. It's... SuperQueeros: all that's lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer in comics today!

Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 10 #28
Just like Excaliber, Xander and Dawn are making their way through a crosstime caper! But without the human hearts of the team, will Willow and the Scoobs stick together long enough to ensure that Dawn and Xander have a home to come back to?

Archie #9
If Veronica wants to date Archie, she's going to have to brave the world of Riverdale! Or should I say that Riverdale will have to brave a world under Veronica? Either way, everything is changing!

Detective Comics #935
The Bats are in the crosshairs of a new enemy! Can Batwoman and Batman train their new charges on the job, or is it curtains for Cassandra, Tim, Stephanie, and Clayface?

Harley Quinn #29
HARLEY FIGHTS GIANT TRANSFORMING ROBOTS. 'Nuff said. #voltron

Teen Titans #21
Just like Young Justice Season 1, the Teens take on Monsieur Mallah and the Brain in order to improve their public image!

Ultimates #8
Civil War II hits the Ultimates! But if the team leader is leading a side in this conflict, then how will dissent worm it's way into the team?

Jughead #7
Jughead and Archie hit the road in order to escape the hubbub of Riverdale! Hubbub and Riverdale... Isn't that an oxymoron?

Lumberjanes #27
The 'janes take a crack at wooing some birds!

Patsy Walker, a.k.a. Hellcat #7
Jessica Jones guest stars as the team starts up their new storyline: Best Frenemies! But how much of that title refers to Jessica?

New Suicide Squad #21
Amanda Waller: the wrangler of the Suicide Squad, a killer cult, and a goddess of murder. Some people get all the cushy jobs...

Dark Knight Returns: The Crusade #1
The prequel to the seminal Frank Miller series starts here! What caused Batman to retire, and what roles did the Joker, Poison Ivy, Catwoman, and "the final Robin" play?

Civil War II: X-Men #1
It's Storm vs Magneto! The X-Men are divided on how to handle the Terrigen Mists and the Inhumans, and it's all coming to a head here!

Uncanny X-Men #8
In order to save Archangel, Betsy has to take on her ex, Fantomex! Plus, M finds a ghost from her (overly complicated, very '90s) past!

Deadpool #14
The Mercs for Money start to feel the thematic pull of Civil War II.
