SuperQueeros! for August 27th, 2014

It's quality over quantity this week for... SuperQueeros: all that's lesbian, gay, bisexual, transexual, transgender, and queer in comics today!

Saga #22
It's been a while since we've seen Upsher and Doff, and I'm not sure if we will this arc, but this cover is definitely bangin'!

Avengers Undercover #9
The (good guy) cavalry has arrived and it's time for our team of supes to decide on their suffix: will they be -hero, or -villain? And can Bloodstone break free from the Son of Satan before Damian makes that decision for him?

SuperQueeros! for August 20th, 2014

Good golly! There sure is a whole lot of reality warping this week. Not the least of which is my understanding of the flow of time: I think this is the second August book for some of these... SuperQueeros: all that's lesbian, gay, bisexual, transexual, transgender, and queer in comics today!

Teen Titans #2
The Titans' new reality of being Vine's next top starlettes is setting in. Time for some Superman poses!

Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Season 10 #6
TV show and comic collide as childhood fantasies become weapons to the team's newest demonic challenge!

Batwoman #34
Nocturna... Maggie... Kate... How does this polygon fit together? And will everyone make it out of this issue once the pieces fall into place? 

Original Sins #5
It's the end of the YA's team-up with evil! Will the Hood permanently mind-wipe two of the universes most excellent superqueeros?

Wicked + Divine #3
Lucy(fer) is the best (currently imprisoned) superqueero ever! But how will her new demon get her out of prison when the Morrigan has been supplanted by a young upstart god?

Batman Eternal #20
Didn't Batman Eternal #18 just come out? Anyway, there's possible Batwoman involvement in this issue, so who cares if Batman Eternal scoffs at mere numbers!

Multiversity #1
Grant Morrison. 52 Universes. One of them has to have a superqueero. I wonder if it's Captain Carrot?

SuperQueeros! for August 13th, 2014

One last hurrah for Simone's Batgirl, the Alpha Flight teams up with Northstar's new team, and is there romance in the (dungeon) air for Bloodstone?! ... SuperQueeros: all that's lesbian, gay, bisexual, transexual, transgender, and queer in comics today!

Batgirl #34
It's Batgirl's last issue before she moves out of her apartment and goes back to school! (Doesn't she already have one doctorate? Greedy!) Anyway, it seems like this may be our last chance to catch some Alysia Yeoh for a while, so pick up the issue to say farewell!

Amazing X-Men #10
Northstar's in trouble, and he thinks of Kyle! Tres cute, and the next best thing to panel time for our favorite x-spouse. Let's see if Jean-Paul and the rest of the Amazing X-Men can help clean up the Wendigo epidemic in the Great White North now that Jean-Paul's old team, Alpha Flight, is saddling up to lend a hand!

Avengers Undercover #8
Three months have passed since the last issue and... is that a kiss I see for Bloodstone?! Villainous romance, <3 div="">

X-Force #8
Psylocke and the team run afoul of M13 and Pete Wisdom.

X-Men #18
Psylocke and the team head to space for some S.W.O.R.D. and Shi'ar time. Psylocke sure keeps a busy schedule...

SuperQueeros! for August 6th, 2014

Now that the collective comic-verse has some mainstay superqueeros, they keep showing up in ensemble titles, like Batman Eternal or Archie. As a result, it's a full week for SuperQueeros: all that's lesbian, gay, bisexual, transexual, transgender, and queer in comics today!

Rachel Rising #27
Rachel is closing in on her killer, but things may get a little hectic when someone thinks they're close to getting their secret outed. Their deep, dark secret...

Batman Eternal #18
Batwoman, accompanied by Jason Todd and Batman, is on the scene to help save James Gordon!

Earth 2 #26
Just when Val-Zod and Green Lantern could use a hand in defeating Kal-El, a Boom Tube opens to reveal... Power Girl!

Harbinger Omegas #1
The post-Harada-calypse Valiant-verse is under the microscope in this miniseries, especially as it relates to the lives of the surviving Renegades, like superqueero Kris.

Archie #658
Kevin Keller is part of the main cast now, so I imagine he'll be showing up to help Betty turn the tables on Archie's end-of-summer dating spree.

She-Hulk #7
The Blue Folio investigation continues! This time, with Pym particles! (And another amaze-balls Kevin Wada cover!)

SuperQueeros! for July 30th, 2014

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?

X-Men #17
Storm's daughter continues her time traveling trek to save Jubilee's son!

Cyclops #3
Before he heads off to draw Thor, Russell Dauterman gives us a few more issues of young Cyc in space!

SuperQueeros! for July 23rd, 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
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.

Saga #21
Time to clean up a murder!

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!

SuperQueeros! for July 16, 2014

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!

Harbinger #25
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 #33
Batwoman's tumble with Nocturna sends her to the lair of the Night-Thief!

Rat Queens #7
It's attack of the Elder Gods in Rat Queens this week! Can the Queens beat back this eldritch horde?

X-Men #16
Psylocke, Jubes, and the rest of Storm's team take on the Future!

Honorable Mentions
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!
