SuperQueeros! for June 22nd, 2011

I just passed my latest actuarial exam yesterday (woo!) and crunch time these past few days didn't leave me much time to blog. But here’s what’s new today!

Hack/Slash #5

Did you know that this book is about a nubile monster slayer and her muscle-bound, silent, Frankenstein/bodyguard/father-figure? And that she's bi??? I so did not see that coming (this is my sarcasm face)! But until I'm corrected (See Tarot, Witch of the Black Rose), I'm going to assume that Hack (the eponymous bi character. Good name, right? [this is my earnest face. I like a strong name for a female character!]) is a complete and fully formed character honestly exploring/experiencing her sexuality. I've heard good things about this book, namely that it's about upending the standard victim/killer formula of slasher films. If anyone has read a bit of it, let us know what you think!

New Mutants #26

A new arc, a new direction, and a new team! Since the last issue ended with Cannonball, Karma, Face, and Magik all either in jail or the hospital, signs aren't looking good for their inclusion on the new team. So flip through the issue before you buy it: I love the New Mutants, but I only buy New Mutants when Karma's on the team.

Justice League of America #58

Obsidian's crossover with the JLA continues! Eclipso's still being a douche, so Todd's going to infiltrate the enemy camp and bring the smack down from within! And what with the whole DCnU not showing any of the JSA, I'm a little nervous that this'll be the last Obsidian story for a long, long time...
