SuperQueeros! for August 24, 2016

Have you done it? Have you read all of the awesome comics you got from the super-creators at FlameCon? Well guess what: They made some new books while you were reading. SuperQueeros: all that's lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer in comics today!

Patsy Walker, a.k.a. Hellcat! #9
Fresh from Con, Kate Leth unleashes the ninth issue of her hit comic! Patsy's exes are back in the picture now that Hedy has dug them up from whatever hell dimension they're ruling now. But will the arrival of her evil ex-beaus spell the end for Patsy and friends (including Jubilee!), or will she finally be able to pay her bills?

Detective Comics #939
James Tynion IV has been busy penning the last issue of Rise of the Batmen, and we've got a lot of shoes that are about to drop. Kate is Bruce's cousin, Red Robin is leaving for college... but with all of these revelations, what does the final page hold that will have us clutching out pearls?

Harley's Little Black Book #4
This is it! Harley meets Harley as Harley lands in the DC Bombshell universe! But will our dimension-hopping heroine be the blast that ends this retro Golden Age conflict, or the match that sets it alight?

Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 10 #30
This it! The final issue of Season 10! But will this season really end with the death of Xander, or are the Scoobies about to slay the vengeance demon who ended him and bring back the heart of the team?

Hellblazer #1
John gets back to his roots for Rebirth. He heads to London to repay Swamp Thing while Mercury harps on him about everything. Yup, it looks like John has a lot to deal with while he blithely ignores the coming evil.

Teen Titans #23
What is the continuity between Detective Comics and this book? H.I.V.E. had the teens right where it wants them, including Red Robin, but isn't he supposed to be heading to university next month? Bunker help his friend escape, or are the Titans about to become bee food?

Extraordinary X-Men #13
The X-Men survived the Apocalypse Wars, but they've managed to unleash Apocalypse back into the present day, lose track of Horseman Colossus, and misplace the demon girl whose mutant powers tie her intimately to the dimension in which the X-Men reside. Will a split-up team have the ability to set things right, or will this X-team, when divided, simply fall?

Chew #57
As chew wraps us it's run, we finally get the answers we've been waiting on for years.

She Wolf #3
This issue we get lore. Awesome!

Archie #11
The battle between Archie and Betty has now become - what else? - a battle of the bands!

Backstagers #1
“LETS MAKE A SUPER GAY STAGE CREW BOOK!!” Thus spake the co-creators of the new BOOM Studios book about a team of queer theatre dudes who have access to a magical realm of mystery.

What happens when the ultimate vigilantes take up the task of prosecuting future crime? They self-destruct. Will the Ultimates make it through this philosophical dilemma, or will they succumb to their ideals?

Harley Quinn #2
Harley continues to struggle against Coney Island's corpse-tastrophe!

Suicide Squad #1

The teams continue to divide up over idealogical lines and the fight over Ulysses amps up!

The Wicked + The Divine #22
The first story arc concludes now! But will anyone survive into the second arc, or will this story about periodic rebirth and guaranteed mortality just hit the reset button?

Harley Quinn #1
Harley’s back! It’s been a full week since Harley’s last series ended, and fans have been chomping at the bit for more of the clown queen of crime! Also chomping at stuff: the zombie apocalypse that has hit Coney Island! Can Harley chop her way out, or is the first issue of her solo series also the last?

Harley Quinn and Her Gang of Harleys #4
The gang has found Harley! Her current location? The Island of Horrible Death! Sounds like a vacation a clown can get behind.

Vote Loki #3
Loki tackles a crisis in Latveria. Yeah, Doom is really going to like that...

Deadpool #16 and Deadpool V Gambit #3

I’m grouping these together because the teaser for Deadpool 16 was boring. (“Find out how Deadpool became popular!” Dude, that’s what Journey Into Misery is for.) However, Deadpool v Gambit looks great! It’s a meat slinging, cook out battle!

Penny Dreadful #3
The origin story of Sembene and Malcolm Murray!
