SuperQueeros! for May 20th, 2015

A-choo! Oh man, I have a bad case of penultimate-itis... And it looks like our weekly SuperQueero comics caught the same bug! SuperQueeros: all that's lesbian, gay, bisexual, transexual, transgender, and queer in comics today!

Wolverines #19
The series hits its penultimate issue this week and the jaws of Mystique's plan are snapping shut! But with Secret Wars smashing all realities together, what is even at stake with this?

Uncanny X-Men #34
Ever the busybody in the face of reality-warping crossover events, Mystique exacts revenge on the X-Men (again)!

A-Force #1
An all-female force that includes Miss America Chavez? Yes, I will be showing up for this book!

Convergence #7
Penultimate-itiss trikes again! Convergence is almost over, and our heroes are all banding together to punch the bad guys super hard!

Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 10 #15
Spike's great-great-...granddaddy is on the loose! Can the Scoobies stop him before he frames Spike for even more murders? And will Andrew come to terms with his fluctuating sexuality, especially now that he's sort of dating Charles Xavier kind of?

Lumberjanes #14
The script has been flipped! Jen is off discovering things in the woods and the other 'janes have to come to her aid! But what is up with this mysterious taxidermist?

Superqueeros! for May 13th, 2015

Exes on a date, gays saving the multiverse universe, and lovers scheming through the veil of the afterlife... SuperQueeros: all that's lesbian, gay, bisexual, transexual, transgender, and queer in comics today!

Adventure Time: Marceline Gone Adrift #5

That cover! So much picturesque #Bubbline cuteness! Can you imagine that date? If not you can just read about it in this issue. Marceline and PB are trying their darnedest to get back to Ooo, which means a lot of together time!

Convergence #6
Green Lantern and our heroes unite, just in time for the baddies getting a super power-up!

Wolverines #18
Sinister's noose closes in on the team. But given that Mystique's strategist is the best posthumous precog in the Marvel U, she's got to have an ace up her sleeve, right?

My Non-Queer Picks: Storm continues her solo series, Ms. Marvel gets a crush, and Saga's saga continues!

SuperQueeros for May 6th, 2015

Summer is in full swing! Convergence is rounding the halfway point, we got our first superhero blockbuster, and Free Comic Book Day kicked off Secret Wars! So let's see who's rocking up for... SuperQueeros: all that's lesbian, gay, bisexual, transexual, transgender, and queer in comics today!

Convergence: The Question #2
Pre-Flashpoint Renee and Batwoman take on Two-Face and give a preview of what is to come. Here's hoping that the preview is a new series for Kate and Renee!

Orphan Black #3
Cosima is front and center in this issue!

Wolverines #17
Sinister starts taking out the Wolverines!

Afterlife with Archie #8
We get some Christmas-themed retconning that shifts some of the zombie-blame away from Jughead and Sabrina: evidently the adults of Riverdale fought off a different zombie outbreak years ago!

Convergence #5
Brainic fights Telos, and the DCU fights to survive!

Convergence: Harley Quinn #2
Harley and the other Gotham City Sirens finish taking out Captain Carrot!

Wicked + Divine #10
Ragnarok sets in and Baphomet does not have long for this plane!

SuperQueeros! for April 29th, 2015

Super-villains are ramping up their activity this week, but hopefully they can be stopped by... SuperQueeros: all that's lesbian, gay, bisexual, transexual, transgender, and queer in comics today!

Wolverines #16
Remember how most of the Paradise team was murdered at Sinister's fortress? Well it looks like they may be getting a second lease on life... Or, more likely, a time-share on some kind of Frankenstein half-life.

Morning Glories #45
Now that "she's gone", it looks like the crazies are stealing the spotlight. Hopefully Guillaume will be okay!

Convergence #4
It's halfway through the miniseries, so I'm supposing that this issue's surprise super-villain is going to be a pivotal Big Bad.

X-Men #26
The Burning Earth comes to its conclusion and the team fights to break the cycle!

SuperQueeros! for April 22nd, 2015

To those about to take exams, I salute us. For everyone else, here's some comics for you to pick up! SuperQueeros: all that's lesbian, gay, bisexual, transexual, transgender, and queer in comics today!

Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 10 #14
The clue to the next big bad lies in Spike's mind. This can only be fun. 

Convergence #3
Green Lantern and crew race to pick up Rip Hunter and the Time Masters as the multiverse implodes!

Chew #48
Evidently they are not releasing the cover to this issue. I wonder why...

Amazing X-Men #19
Can Colossus take out the new host of Cyttorak? 

Wolverines #15
Daken takes center stage as he hunts the monster who stole his healing. X-23 joins up, but is it to help her clone's-son or stop him? And why would she want to stop him?

SuperQueeros! for April 15th, 2015

It's blast from the past week! The Lumberjanes have an origin issue, Convergence dredges up our fav 'queero's of today and yesterday, and Mystique puts back in motion the revival of the ultimate blast from the past... SuperQueeros: all that's lesbian, gay, bisexual, transexual, transgender, and queer in comics today!

Lumberjanes #13
It's Secret Origins time! See how the 'janes first made each other's ajanetance. #notsorry

Now on Earth 1, can Green Lantern access the Green? And can the White restore Sam back to life?

SuperQueeros! for April 8th, 2015

It's Convergence! And that means all your old favorite characters and stories are coming back to the DCU! Let's see how many of them are... SuperQueeros: all that's lesbian, gay, bisexual, transexual, transgender, and queer in comics today!

Convergence Question #1

Woo-hoo! Renee Montoya is back! And, much like her Gotham incarnation, she's teaming up with Harvey Dent to take down... Harvey Dent? It's two times the Two Face (It's Four Face?) as the best incarnation of The Question returns to the page!

Convergence #1
It's so weird how the two publishers are all the time paralleling each other... Well, just as Marvel is pitting all sorts of realities against each other in this summer's Secret Wars event, so too is DC cherry picking from their best and most iconic runs, smashing them together, and calling it a sales-voted consensus reality TRUTH. Anyway, by definition this is the coolest of all possible fictional universes, and from the cover it looks like all the most interesting Earth 2 characters made it out alive or magically reanimated!

Convergence Harley Quinn #1
Remember Gotham City Sirens? When Harley and Ivy were living together with their pet Catwoman, just like a real queer couple? It's BACK! and they are fighting.... Captain Carrot?

Rat Queens #10
Meanwhile, while the Big Two are smashing all their action figures together in two separate sets of super wars, Rat Queens is taking a breaking to pick up all the pieces that they already smashed against some Elder Gods. Less than three, Rat Queens. Less than three.

And, just an editorial aside, if you are a big Stephanie Brown-as-Batgirl fan (that last issue was SO GOOD) or a fan of Cassie Cain under the cowl, then you will love Convergence Batgirl #1, where both Bats are back! Plus, Tim Drake as Red Robin tags along to provide some beefcake.
