SuperQueeros! for October 22nd, 2014

Halloween is fast approaching, and all the comics are getting in the spirit, starting with BuffySuperQueeros: all that's lesbian, gay, bisexual, transexual, transgender, and queer in comics today!

Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Season 10 #8
And your Halloween present from the Scooby gang is... a return to Sunnydale! And there's a magical, monsterous party going down at the Hellmouth this year, thanks to Willow and the gang's re-magik-ing of Earth. I wonder what everyone is going as? 

Earth 2: World's End #3
The War for the World continues, and masks start making a big difference! Under the helm of Dr. Fate, what are Nabu's intentions, now that he has control?

Multiversity: The Just #1
Reality gets in costume with thus celebrity superheo What If...? when Grant Morrison's multiverse-spanning narrative hits Earth-16. But the real question is... who's going to come out on the cover of People? (Fair Warning: It may be no one. [But there is that gay Flash character in the main Multiversity arc, so I can't imagine they wouldn't pass up the opportunity...])

Wicked + Divine #5
The solicit only says... "Showtime". Spooky.

Amazing X-Men #12
Now that the Wendi-demic has spread to US soil, Northstar and his twin sister are the only things standing in the way of us and furred out costumes for everyone!

Avengers and X-men: Axis #3
Mystique has joined the fight against the Red Onslaught, so this book is relevant to our list! I wonder who she is going to dress as to fight giant adamantium Sentinels? Also, where did that much adamantium come from? I thought this was supposed to be a rare metal.

She-Hulk #9
Shulkie and team join up with Steve Rogers against their ultimate courtroom adversary: the Daredevil! (The Halloween tie-in is that he's a devil. Of sorts.)

X-Force #11
Psylocke and crew have to try to recruit the mutant version of The Silence. Can they remember to do it? And will anyone be wearing a TARDIS dress? And can it be Dr. Nemesis?

SuperQueeros! for October 15th, 2014

Look at that gorge-o Kevin Wada cover! DC is, once again, killing it with the queer-inclusivity this week, plus we get Noelle Stevenson's Lumberjanes, and I missed a horror comic from last week! SuperQueeros: all that's lesbian, gay, bisexual, transexual, transgender, and queer in comics today!

Lumberjanes #7
Now that the 'janes have the knowledge they've been seeking, will they be able to get past a fickle foe from their past? That's right, it's the terrible return of... The Boys Camp! (Plus, have you guys seen? You can pre-order a copy of Nimona now!)

Batwoman #35
Kate finds herself in the company of Gotham's baddest bogeypeople as she joins forces with Red Alice, Ragman, the Demon, and Clayface. But what could cause the city's favorite socialite vigilante to join up with her sworn enemies? That's just what this issue seeks to unearth!

Teen Titans #3
A Kevin Wada cover?! Sweet-as! Oh, and the action centers around Raven this issue when her night off turns into a throw-down!

Earth 2 World's End #2
Enter the first horseman, the woman known only as... WAR!

PLUS, last week's The October Faction #1 implied either that the son is gay, or that he just handles homophobic bullying like a superstar. So... I'm counting him! Also, Morph may make an appearance in Uncanny X-Men #27, but Cyke is the focus of the solicit. And, while the new "best there is at what she does", Kamala Kahn, finds out some more about her past in Ms. Marvel #9, the old "best there is at what he does" faces his grim demise in Death of Wolverine #4. That's right, Wolverine dies! Again. Presumably not to be resurrected by the Hand this time. Can the Hand resurrect you twice? Also, how does that work? Is Northstar just a magically animated corpse, or did his temporary death have literally no consequences?

SuperQueeros! for October 6th, 2014

DC takes the top spot this week with Batgirl and Earth 2! Plus, none of the characters are Batman's wife! SuperQueeros: all that's lesbian, gay, bisexual, transexual, transgender, and queer in comics today!

Batgirl #35
Batgirl may be getting rebooted (she literally has new boots), but that doesn't mean that Alysia is going to fade into the background! Her activism is already tying her into the main storyline so, even if she isn't rooming with Babs anymore, Yeoh is here to stay!

Earth 2 #27 and Earth 2: Future's End #1
I'm lumping these two issues together because the solicits sound almost exactly the same... Based on the covers I'd say there's a granddaughter-grandpa fight, then the Green Lantern makes a cameo in order to tell the Huntress and NuBatman to stop their family feuding and help fight some Parademons. And since it's Futures End, I'm assuming everyone gets turned into robots?

X-Force #10
The team meets up with a Character of the Month from X-Men: Legacy #300. I have totally forgotten this "ForgetMeNot" person...

Archie #660
Archie has four dates on the same night! And the solicit promises "cameos galore", which I take to mean "Yes, we shoehorned Kevin into this storyline about straight white male promiscuity." Which actually does make we want to read this issue, even if I just read the issue.

There's also a whole bunch of awesome horror comics coming out this week, including (The Chilling Adventures of) Sabrina #1, a dark take on the Sabrina mythology in the vain of Afterlife with Archie, and Klarion #1, the New 52's ongoing series about the witch-boy guardian of chaos himself. I don't know if there are any queer characters in ANY of them, but Sabrina is written by IRL superqueero Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa and I've always thought that being a Witch Boy is gender non-conformist.

SuperQueeros! for October 1st, 2014

We've got a more eclectic mix of media this week, from classic comics at your LCS to some less IRL comics. All of them, though, bring the superqueeroics! SuperQueeros: all that's lesbian, gay, bisexual, transexual, transgender, and queer in comics today!

Rat Queens #8
The solicit says that, if you can't beat the Old God's occultists, join them, then shiv them in the back with a rusty blade! #RatQueensStyle Sounds like things are getting interesting in for Betty and the Queens!

Burn the Orphanage: Reign of Terror #5
The second miniseries of Burn the Orphanage is finishing up this week, so if you're in the mood read about Bear, a gay bear with the literal heart of a bear, beat the snot out of MannCorp, why not pick up this issue, the prior four in this series, and the three issue series that started his story!

X-Men #20
Psylocke and the X-Men take on the Genespliced, a troupe of alien hybrids!

Morning Glories #41
I've gotten behind on my Morning Glories, so all I can say is what the solicits say: "Nowhere else to go." Gulp.

Thor #1
It's the debut of the new Thor, as penciled by Russell Dauterman!

Plus! Maybe you remember Terry Blas's Briar Hollow webcomic? Well issue #6 is starting, and it's starting out sexy! Plus, if you pop over to Northwest Press, you can order a copy of Dash #1, a queer noir that came out this month!

And in the queer adjacent category we have Gotham Academy #1 and Wonder Woman #34!

SuperQueeros! for September 24th, 2014

It's good-bye to the Lumberjanes (for now), and hello to the most awesome Chew team-up ever! SuperQueeros: all that's lesbian, gay, bisexual, transexual, transgender, and queer in comics today!

Lumberjanes #6
It's the last issue of this hit series! Now that the team is fully formed, will they be able to solve the mystery by returning to the scene of the crime? And will Molly and Mal admit their feelings?

Rachel Rising #28
Rachel tries her hand at some magic of her own...

Chew #43
Olive, Poyo, and Colby. Need we see more? No, we don't.

Amazing X-Men #11
Northstar's old and new teams collide in the Spirit Realm!

Harbinger Omega #2
Kris and the rest of the team are in the sights of Harada. Can they make it through a miniseries subtitled "Omega"?

SuperQueeros! for September 17th, 2014

It's Future's End for the DC superqueeros, while Archie's crew takes to the streets! Plus, Wicked + Divine! SuperQueeros: all that's lesbian, gay, bisexual, transexual, transgender, and queer in comics today!

Kevin Keller #15
Now that he's getting underwritten by his bestie, Veronica, Kevin's a real life superhero! But for a street level bruiser like Batman or Power Man, and now THE EQUALIZER, the street has to have some criminals to beat, and Riverdale's about as wholesome as... well, as Archie comics! 

Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Season 10 #7
Xander and Spike have the keys to the magical rule book and a couple of torches for the Summers girls. What could go wrong?
Batwoman: Future's End #1
In the future, Kate is a VAMPIRE!

Wicked + Divine #4
The solicit tells us that "the mystery is solved". But at my last count there wasn't just ONE mystery. So which one are they talking about? And will Lucy get out of her cell?

Teen Titans: Future's End #1
The Titans are DEAD! Maybe Bunker got replaced by a boyfriend we haven't met yet?

Batman Eternal #24
Spoiler takes center stage! Squee!

Wonder Woman: Future's End #1
What dark future is there for Diana, God of War?

Archie #659
Archie and pals join Sabrina at the zoo. Hey, has Kevin met Sabrina yet?

SuperQueeros! for September 10, 2014

This week brings back people you thought long gone. People and... SuperQueeros: all that's lesbian, gay, bisexual, transexual, transgender, and queer in comics today!

Batgirl: Future's End #1
Simone gives us a peek at her future for Babs, as well as for Alysia and James Gordon. But after Batgirl's bae gets fridged and she quits the superhero game, who will carry on her legacy? And will they be able to draw her out of retirement?

Morning Glories #40
It looks like Jade is back!

Prophet Strike File #1
Get the low down on all the characters in the Prophet-verse, including John Ka! 

Plus, X-Force #9 sees Psylocke and her team take on MI-13, Betty and Veronica #272 sees the girls leave Riverdale and their GBF, Kevin, behind, and Ms. Marvel dogsits!
