SuperQueeros! for December 17th, 2014

An era is ending! Batwoman's three year reign may be coming to a close in a few months, but you can still pick her up this week. SuperQueeros: all that's lesbian, gay, bisexual, transexual, transgender, and queer in comics today!

Batwoman #37
It's the end of the road for Batwoman, one of the New 52's break-out-hits-turned-controversey-generator. Unfortunately, switching to a 'queero author didn't make up for DC's misstep, and the title is on it's last storyline. Be sure to pick up this title before it's too late!

The Wicked + The Divine #6
With the first storyline behind us, it's time for FAN-demonium!

Avengers and X-men: AXIS #8
Can the Scarlet Witch undo her inversion? Or will Mystique be leading the Astonishing Avengers forever? 

Earth 2: World's End #11
Mister Miracle fights Darkseid for the fate of two worlds!

There are a lot of awesome books that may or may not have superqueeros, including Ms. Marvel #10 and Harbinger: Faith! Also, Wonder Woman and the latest Multiversity issue.

SuperQueeros! for December 10, 2014

Is it Ragnarok-ing outside? Rachel Rising + Afterlife with Archie bring the zombies, Darkseid lands on Earth 2, and Batgirl wears sequins. But what do these plagues portend? Oh, Rachel Grey is visiting the Shi'ar empire? Yeah, that explains it. SuperQueeros: all that's lesbian, gay, bisexual, transexual, transgender, and queer in comics today!

Rachel Rising #30
Rachel confronts her killer this issue! Whoever writes the solicits for this series needs to be consulted though. They tease that she might not make it out alive. Spoilers, dude: She already didn't. #zombienarratives

Afterlife with Archie #7
Speaking of zombie heroines, things aren't looking too good for Betty. This issue starts the series' second story arc: "Betty, RIP". Fingers crossed, Ms. Cooper!

Batgirl #37
Batgirl has an impersonator! But... why?

Earth 2: Worlds End #10
DARKSEID!

The October Faction #3
The kids hatch a plot to get their dad off the sofa and back into the monster hunting biz!

Amazing X-Men #14
Mystique and her son have one of their famous heart-to-hearts.

X-Force #13
Meme was Hope the whole time?! Please let this cover be deceiving!

X-Men #22
It's the last issue in the space arc. Will Rachel genocide the species who murdered her family (excluding her time-displaced mother and siblings)? Will the Shi'ar realize that preemptive murder to prevent your own extinction is actually a self-fulfilling prophecy?

SuperQueeros! for December 3rd, 2014

Another DC-domination week, and the relaunch of a fan-favorite title! SuperQueeros: all that's lesbian, gay, bisexual, transexual, transgender, and queer in comics today!


Secret Six #1
The lead story this week is that Gail Simone is finally giving us the DCnU's version of her fan favorite team! Of course, the only familiar faces are Catman and Black Alice, but can Vandal Savage be that far behind? And will she get back her Knockout? And, in the meantime, what superqueero will Simone be bringing to the table to tide us over?

Chew #45
Is Colby going to fry up his old partner, cybernetic super fowl Poyo?

Earth 2 #29/Earth 2: World's End #9
The fight gets taken to Apokolips in World's End, while Babs and Dick's son gets ferried out of Chicago in the regular issue.

Gotham Academy #3
So what IS detention like in Gotham?

Archie #662
Kevin's on the cover, so I'm assuming he's inside too!

SuperQueeros! for November 26, 2014

Not a lot of comics this week, but what there are feature a few familiar 'queeros that we haven't seen in a while.  SuperQueeros: all that's lesbian, gay, bisexual, transexual, transgender, and queer in comics today!

Amazing X-Men #13
Finally, some Anole! Nightcrawler and Northstar leap to the rescue as Anole's deepest fears run amok in NYC! But what could a perennial fan favorite like Anole truly fear?

Earth 2: World's End #8
Constantine joins the fight! Now if only he and Alan Scott would share some sexual tension, all my hellblazingest dreams would come true!

Prophet Strikefile #2
More of John Ka's friends and enemies make their debut in this encyclopedia of the Prophet-verse.

SuperQueeros! for November 19th, 2014

Last week may have been light on superqueeros, but this week the law of conservation of queers means that we've got a ton of... SuperQueeros: all that's lesbian, gay, bisexual, transexual, transgender, and queer in comics today!

Lumberjanes #8
The Lumberjanes have reached the end of their mystery, and the answer is... sibling rivalry between ancient Greek twin gods! Will they be able to settle the rivalry, or at least come out alive?

Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Season 10 #9
Sunnydale homecoming turns sour when the crew realizes that Andrew is in need of some help defending the reality-defining book of Vampyr!

Batwoman #36
Kate meets up - and teams up - with Jason Blood, a.k.a. The Demon!

Teen Titans #4
The teens meet up with the mastermind behind the team of operatives and cyborgs they've been fighting since issue one. What commentary on America's youth and its relationship to adulthood will this villain represent?

Avengers and X-Men: Axis #6
The heroes and villains are at each other's throats, and the solicit promises the birth of the Astonishing Avengers.  But who are these new Avengers? Perhaps the villains mentioned in the solicit: Quicksilver, Magneto, Mystique, and Loki?

Morning Glories #42
This issue marks an explicit DECLARATION! (...I hear.)

X-Force #12
Fantomex takes down his own team because narcissism! He's kind of Deadpool-ing out of narrative plausibility these days, eh?

Earth 2: World's End #7
The war continues! I've been assuming that Green Lantern is in this, but he hasn't made any of the covers yet, so... who knows. Maybe you? Let me know, if you do!

And some possibly queer-inclusive issues: Multiversity: Pax Americana #1.3, Wonder Woman's post-Azzarello relaunch in Wonder Woman #36, and Uncanny X-Men #28.

SuperQueeros! for November 12th, 2014

It's a pretty light week for superqueeros, so I'm going to spotlight some interesting titles too. But "light" does not mean "totally bereft"; we do have a couple of... SuperQueeros: all that's lesbian, gay, bisexual, transexual, transgender, and queer in comics today!

Batgirl #36
It's time for Babs to hit the books! But just as classes get going, Batgirl has to tangle with the Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen of katana-wielding motorcycle assassins! (They have their own clothing line. And one of them is married to an older Frenchman. I assume. Because they're twins.)

Earth 2: Worlds End #6
The fight against the forces of Apokolips continues! Man, once you un-bottle those BoomTubes, they just don't stop vomiting hell-spawn onto your doorstep!

And now for some cool stuff I saw in my research: Kitchen #1 is an entry in the gangster genre, but for this mob, all the heads are women. Klarion #2 has a kiss that "changes everything" and, even though I'm 99.9% sure it's from a lady, I'm crossing my fingers so much for a gentleman-demon! All New Ultimates #10 has a Bombshell cover, Batman Eternal #32 gets back to The Spoiler, and Thor #2 continues the awesome new direction for the series! Oh, and speaking of diversity in comics, All New Captain America #1 is out this week! And Sam's sidekick is Nomad!

SuperQueeros! for November 5th, 2014

Red and green this week as Kevin Keller starts celebrating Christmas, Green Lantern fights the fires of Apokolips' Furies, and Agent Brand and Marvel Girl find out secrets of their pasts. SuperQueeros: all that's lesbian, gay, bisexual, transexual, transgender, and queer in comics today!

Archie #661
It's Kevin Keller's first encounter with Jingles, Riverdale's tiniest elf with the biggest attitude! Of course, since I only started reading Archie because of Kevin, it's mine too, so I'm relying entirely on the solicit for that judgment of Jingles. Novice though I am, I'm pretty certain that Jingle's annoying 'tude is big enough to put Kevin's life - or at least his pre-Thanksgiving Christmas issue - in danger!

Earth 2 #28 // Earth 2: World's End #5
Apokolips' Four Furies are burning Earth 2 around them, and Green Lantern is cornered by an old enemy: Solomon Grundy (re-born this Wednesday)!

Chew #44
The solicit says that this issue will make you physically ill. So... buy it?

Hack/Slash: Son of Samhain #5
The conclusion of bisexual Cassie hack's search for a new slasher partner.

X-Men #21
Family secrets galore are revealed this issue as the X-Men search for some deep space denouement!
