SuperQueeros! for April 25th, 2012

I'm giving two shout-outs to non-queero titles this week because the first book in this list has me SO ECSTATICALLY HAPPY!

Astonishing X-Men #49
X-Men fighting Mauraders, check. Connections to a character's shady past, check. Damsel in distress, che- Wait a minute! It's not a damsel, it's Kyle Northstar's-fan-favorite-boyfriend who's in trouble! And the charcater with the shady connection to the Mauraders is, for once, not Gambit! (Even though he is also in this title!!!) It's all Northstar, all the time in Marjorie Liu's newest homerun series and, if you've seen the solicit for issue #51, you can guess that that spotlight is not going to abate until we've got a happy ending for Marvel's first and foremost gay X-couple!

Justice League Dark #8 / I, Vampire #8
It's the end of the crossover! John's going back into Hell (remember, he was just there in his eponymous other-line title?) to get the vampire cavalry while Xanadu makes a deal with the powers that be and Shade and Zatanna struggle to survive the vampire hordes! To subdue this uprising, however, our characters are going to have to "change the face of sorcery forever!" Fingers crossed that that means getting Constantine a boyfriend again!

New Avengers #25
The Iron Fist finds out his magic kung fu can host the Phoenix Force! Or something. Will Victoria be in this issue now that she's a good guy again?????

Teen Titans #8
Now that they saved Superboy, it's time to save Wonder Girl! I love that they have rainbow Tron costumes!!!!

SHOUT OUTS!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Archie Marries Valerie, Part 2!!! I've read those Life with Archie titles and trust me, Val's the best choice, Archie! (Besides Jugghead, of course)
Warlords of Mars! No reason and definitely not solely because of the cover! NOPE! Not because of that!
