SuperQueeros! for April 28th, 2016

We're getting a lot of interesting concepts in comics this week: Galactus' role as Lifebringer is defined, Wonder Girl discovers her origins, and Harley Quinn takes on her marvelous counterpart... SuperQueeros: all that's lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer in comics today!

Harley Quinn #27
Comics sure love a foul-mouthed, fourth wall-breaking, homicidal psychopath dressed in black and red! Can you even imagine what would happen if the two of them were in the same comic? They'd probably kill each other! In a rollerderby! With a LOT of civilian casualties! Actually, stop imagining it and get to your local comic book shop to read about it. This month, our beloved Harley Quinn, the "Yas Kween!" clown of chaos, is taking down her marvelous male counterpart: It's Harley Quinn vs. .... Redtool!

Ultimates #6
Al Ewing continues to define the new status quo for Galactus, the Lifebringer! But is this really a new chapter for the former universal constant of destruction? Any story that starts with the Sisyphus myth and is about a planetary-scale reversal of entropy is, by virtue of Chehov's gun, just loading up the universe for another Dark Phoenix-level genocide!

Batgirl #51
As Galactus starts a new chapter, Babs is closing the book on her time in Burnside. With just one issue left, join Batgirl and friends as they discern just what their next steps are!

Insexts #5
Lady and Mariah have answers. Now they just need to save the missing women from the Hag!

Teen Titans #19
Now that Cassie knows that she is a demigod - and Wonder Woman's niece - it's time for her to fight alongside the rest of her Olympian family!

Pasty Walker, a.k.a. Hellcat!
Patsy and Valkyrie are in a bit of a bind. Can they make it out and make it to Patsy's big meeting with Hedy Wolfe? Or is this cool cat as good as skinned?

Saga #36
Now that Upsher and Doff are under his sway, will the Will have the resources he needs to close in on our heroes?

Secret Six #13
Strix has to save the rest of the team, and to do so she will have to... defeat the rest of the team!

It's a bird! It's a plane! It's... Batwoman! Kate Kane is back, along with a cavalcade of other... SuperQueeros: all that's lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer in comics today!

Injustice Gods Among Us Year Five #8
Harley starts to gather together some like-minded maniacs, but her Joker jubilee is cut short by the timely arrival of Batwoman!

Lumberjanes #25
Happy anniversary to one of the best books on the stand today! And to celebrate it's an oversized issue! Can Jen make camp perfect for the High Council even though all the kittens have superpowers now?

Extraordinary X-Men #9
How did Colossus, Anole, Glob, Ernst, and No Girl become the post-apocalyptic adults we met last month? Find out as issue nine fills in the blanks and shows us the bildungsroman of Victor Borkowski!

Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 10 #26
Buffy is angry and her team is falling apart! Sounds like a recipe for dramatic mistakes.

Harley's Little Black Book #3
Harley teams-up with Zatanna to bust the ghosts that have taken up residence in her house!

Poison Ivy: Cycle of Life and Death #4
Ivy enlists the help of Catwoman to help stem the rising body count! Can the world's best jewel thief help it's preeminent botanist clear the name of her mutant plant/human hybrid children?

SuperQueeros! for April 13, 2016

This week we get three of the best bisexuals in the biz, plus issue #1 of a hero who is likely fated to join their ranks. Join Selina, Constantine, Harley, and Gwenpool for... SuperQueeros: all that's lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer in comics today!

Catwoman #51
An ancient Gotham artifact resurfaces... along with a piece of Selina's past!

Constantine the Hellblazer #11
Neron has taken over NYC, so our indefatigable hero... has booked it to Los Angeles? Now it's up to Deadman to inspire some heroic feeling in Constantine and book him on a bicoastal flight!

Harley Quinn and Her Gang of Harleys #1
Spinning out of Harley's solo series, her Gang of Harleys takes to the pages of their own monthly series! For their first mission... they have to save Harley!

Earth 2 Society #11
Earth 2's Society is feeling the strain as its nations gear up for war!

All-New X-Men #8
Science meets magic as the Beast and Dr. Strange team-up to figure out Beast's place in the new Marvel universe.

Gwenpool #1
Gwen Poole was a comic fan just like you... until she woke up in a comic book universe and decided to be the best, least responsible fourth wall-breaking anti-hero she could be!

Hercules #6
Even though Marvel said that they erased Herc's bisexuality after Secret Wars, I'm throwing him on the list!

The Fist of Cain has our anti-heroes against the wall! Will Task Force X be able to wiggle out of this one, or are they finally going to live up to the name of their comic?

Injustice Gods God Among Us Year Five #7
Harley and Catwoman head off on their own and run across Damien, just as he's working to become the next Nightwing!

SuperQueeros! for March 16, 2016

I've been waiting for this day ever since I found out that Estelle voices Garnett: Steven Universe has it's own comic book! SuperQueeros: all that's lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer in comics today!

Steven Universe & the Crystal Gems #1
Steven and the rest of the Gems share scary stories around the camp fire. Coincidentally, camp fire stories are a perfect way to introduce a cryptic new threat with a fully fleshed-out, but patently suspect, mythos! But I'm sure that's not happening here. ;)

Lumberjanes #24
The shapeshifting adventures come to an end this issue, but not without some well-timed selkie-, ghost ship-, and pool noodle-based rescuing!

Rat Queens #15
Finally! This team of mates has been too loyal, but this week we get some betrayal. It's a good thing, too: I was starting to think that this raiding party was functional and well adjusted!

All-New X-Men #6
The fight with The Blob escalates! Now that the team is working in concert, will Fred Dukes stop wiping the floor with them? Or is this curtains for our team of X-babies?

Extraordinary X-Men #8
The Apocalypse War starts now! Which raises the question... Who will be the new Death?
