Superqueeros! for February 3rd, 2010

What comics are coming out on February 3rd that feature queer characters? We've got your run down right here!

This week's list is on the short side, but every book is top-notch!

Buffy the Vampire Slayer #32
The subtitle to this issue should be "Buffy Tests Superman Cliches". Something has super-powered our favorite erstwhile cheerleader and she spends the first bit of this issue testing the limits of her new powers. Now, I'm sure whatever pumped her up is horrifying, inhuman, and at the cost of Slayers' lives, but right now she can (guiltlessly) jump over pagodas! Awesome-sauce! Plus, this is the beginning of the end of Buffy season eight! It's the first issue of the penultimate chapter (the last good jumping on point!), and we're finally gonna find out who Twilight is (if we avoided the internet spoilers). I'm excited, Willow's re-powered, and this train ain't stopping for no man, queer, or super-charged Slayer!

The Question #37
I love Renee Montoya as the Question, but evidently everybody on comixology loves Vic Sage a million times more. Coincidentally, "a million" is about how many people are pulling this Blackest Night tie-in that pits zombie-Sage against Montoya. The only title pulled more this week is Marvel's Ultimate X (can the strong guy on this team PLEASE be a grey version of Wuvable Oaf?), so if your comic store is out of it, scour the streets of your city or sell your first born, but whatever you do, don't miss out on the premiere gay/zombie crossover of the year!

House of Mystery #22
This title has promised to feature the only openly gay goblin super-warrior by the end of this year, so jump on while he's still a lovable, bumbling goof! Plus, the main character, Fig, has just found out that she has a cruel, sadistic brother, hell bent on becoming her new best friend. Hilarity, violence, and cute stories-with-in-a-story are bound to unfold; be there when it happens!

Blackest Night: Wonder Woman #3 (of 3)
And finally, my most anticipated title of the month, Star Sapphire Wonder Woman! Officially, I have nothing else to say beyond "AWESOME". This concept is just too amazing to go wrong! Unofficially, here's some advice: If you don't understand what all the astonishment is about, learn yourself some knowledge: http://www.wikipedia.org/
