Ah, the hallowed fifth Wednesday, haven of dark horses and missed deadlines. Though the pickings are Slim, they're X-actly the sort of comics we love: made by and about... SuperQueeros: all that's lesbian, gay, bisexual, transexual, transgender, and queer in comics today!
Uncanny X-Men #24
Xavier's will is read by guest star She-Hulk! Who wants to bet that Cyclops inherited the X-Mansion?
Storm's daughter continues her time traveling trek to save Jubilee's son!
Before he heads off to draw Thor, Russell Dauterman gives us a few more issues of young Cyc in space!
Tuesday, July 22, 2014
Kevin Keller, BtVS, Young Avengers, Saga, and more! This week it's all old classics for SuperQueeros: all that's lesbian, gay, bisexual, transexual, transgender, and queer in comics today!
Life With Archie #37
Life With Archie #37
One year after the momentous events of issue #36 - you know, when Archie got shot and died? - we meet back up with the gang to see just what life is like without Archie. As my boyfriend said, decrying angst-loving fans like me, when he found out that Archie had died, "Y'all have ruint comics!"
Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Season 10 #5
The Scoobies continue their fight against Dracula! but now that he's cottoned on to the new world order and upgraded his supernatural prowess, will our kids be able to box the badder boogieman?
Original Sins #4
So now our heroes are doing bad things with a bad guy for an ostensibly good end. In a series about exposing secrets, this can't end well, can it?
Batman Eternal #16
I finally found where all the Batman 'queeros went! It's in this title! I don't know if any are slated for an appearance this issue, but Harper will be in this issue, so it's possible her brother will show.
Afterlife with Archie, a normally very queer-inclusive title, will be focusing on Sabrina's experiences in the Netherworld this month. Meanwhile, at the Big Two, Wonder Woman is kicking off the end of her mythology-changing storyline while Storm is just getting started on hers!

Rejoice! After last month's outing of everyone's favorite Renegade and this week's re-launch of an old chestnut, it is a veritable renaissance for the... SuperQueeros: all that's lesbian, gay, bisexual, transexual, transgender, and queer in comics today!
Though a woman was refrigerated to do it, Kris is now the first SuperQueero from Valiant! This double-sized issue is set to focus more on tying up Toyo Harada, but after he's gone the Harbingers will be left in uncharted, Sapphic waters!
Teen Titans #1
YES! Bunker is back! He, Wonder Girl, Raven, Beast Boy, and Red Robin are superheroic counselors to tomorrow's metahumans in this iteration of one of DC's most excellent teams. It sounds like we'll be getting freak-of-the-week, teeenager style. Like Earth 2 plus Avengers Academy/Arena/Undercover.
Life with Archie #36
But, as with all things, this week can't be all reboots and fresh starts. The awesome Life with Archie is closing it's metaphorical doors with, what else, The Death of Archie. Tune in for what may be Clay Walker's last appearance!
Batwoman's tumble with Nocturna sends her to the lair of the Night-Thief!
It's attack of the Elder Gods in Rat Queens this week! Can the Queens beat back this eldritch horde?
Psylocke, Jubes, and the rest of Storm's team take on the Future!
The fabulous She-Hulk (#6) continues to smash her way through The Blue File, outfitted in the best Kevin Wada covers to ever hit the stands. Meanwhile, over in the X-verse, we have the X-Men's 100th Anniversary Special (who were created 51 years ago...), as well as "The Last Will and Testament of Charles Xavier" in Uncanny X-Men #23. I don't think there's much of a chance that we will get to see Morph, but you never know! Lastly, the latest issue of Wicked & Divine is out, which gets included because, with gods inhabiting mortal bodies, there has to be someone queering it up!
Tuesday, July 8, 2014
Wendigo, Knightfall, Domino,... and Alex Wilder?! Yup, it's old friends returning (from the dead) this week in... SuperQueeros: all that's lesbian, gay, bisexual, transexual, transgender, and queer in comics today!
Knightfall is getting all the criminals out of Gotham. So why is Batgirl trying to stop her? And will activists like Alysia be allowed to stay?
Avengers Undercover #7
The girls continue their quest for answers!
Original Sins #3
The continuation of Hulkling and Prodigy's story!
Amazing X-Men #9
The crew goes to save Wolverine from the Wendigos!

Marvel's gearing up for their movie release this weekend, so NONE of this week's titles are from Marvel. As I was reminiscing with my landlady today, where, oh where, did the gay sci-fi heydays of Jack Harkness go? Thankfully, we've got some classic titles this week to keep us going. SuperQueeros: all that's lesbian, gay, bisexual, transexual, transgender, and queer in comics today!
Earth 2 #25
Okay, this title is fast becoming the Ultimate-verse of DC. This issue we get the landmark debut of a Superman of color, Val-Zod! And he literally has to overcome the twisted, white, heteronormative patriarchy of his newly evil predecessor, Kal-El. The fact that he's accompanied by two golden age heroes, one re-imagined as a queer character and the other as a person of color, is kind of a huge deal. You might want to pick this issue up IRL. When Miles Morales and Val-Zod are competing as box office mainstays, it might pay to have a copy on hand to auction.
Morning Glories #39
Now that the straight twin is inhabiting the gay twin's body, we kind of lost our regularly occurring queer character. Sure his cute French boyfriend is still around, but he's just mopey now. Someone needs to resurrect our gAyPI superqueero quickly! Or give Jade a girlfriend. She's alive again, right?
Hack/Slash: Son of Samhain #1
Cassie Hack is back! Maybe this time her slasher partner will be a girl? And there will be romance? #notholdingmybreath
Tuesday, June 24, 2014
We've got a wealth of titles this week! Beleaguered aunts, booby-trapped reporters, nefarious federal agents, boys standing in the face of temptation, impostor ninjas, young masters, and... SuperQueeros: all that's lesbian, gay, bisexual, transexual, transgender, and queer in comics today!
Ms. Marvel #5
Every week I look at the covers of the comics coming out this week and choose my favorite to lead the post. This week, though, the best cover is from my favorite non-'queero title. Look at that cover. Gorgeous. #kamalakorps
Rachel Rising #26
Dr. Siemen is activating a chip inside Aunt Johnny's head! What will it do?
"Chicken Tenders" continues! And doesn't Tony look happy about it? And don't those cyborg animals look happy about it?
Original Sins #3
Hulkling and Prodigy continue to bound toward dark, dark secrets!
A team member dies! Who are you hoping for?
Avengers Undercover #6
Death Locket has a mission... Kill Captain America!
Tuesday, June 17, 2014
The Draculation continues! Count D has the new rule book on vampires and he's looking for some wicked cheats! Can the Scoobies save their tome and the one Scooby who has fallen to Dracula's dark thrall?
The pantheon of Kate's friends-turned-thieves continues to expand as her ex, a re-imagined Nocturna, makes her new 52 debut!
The X-Men continue to take the fight to the master of the new Sentinels!
Wonder Woman #32
Diana continues to battle her relatives. Plus, following in the footsteps of Cronus and Hades, who will consume their kin next?
It's war for the X-Men as the school comes under attack and Jubilee takes a pivotal part. Plus, Anole in the back-up story! (I guess his graduation didn't stick?)
