SuperQueeros! for August 29th, 2012

Tomorrow is Dragon Con Eve, you guys! For Southeastern Gaymers like me, Dragon Con Eve is basically Christmas Eve if Christmas were a four day long gift to yourself and the theme were "The Young Avengers" instead of "Jesus". Oh, and in this analogy Aaron Ashmore is the stocking stuffer.


But, anyway, comics:

Angel and Faith #13
I am digging Willow sans Buffy! Their falling out was too... boring. And Willow's quest to get back magic is much more interesting than fake robot pregnancy. It's too bad this is the penultimate issue of the story... but maybe it will reinvigorate Will for the rest of Season 9! I know she gets some powers for next week's issue and that probably means that this week has a Willow-centric cliffhanger, so I am well chuffed!

Uncanny X-Force #30
I don't think Daken or Mystique were in last week's issue! This week focuses on the New Brotherhood trying to turn Baby-pocalypse evil, so hopefully they'll both rear their sexy, sexy heads.

Justice League #12
I still consider Wonder Woman queer. I mean, I'm queer and if my writer pitched the idea of my boyfriend being Superman do you think I would protest? Nope, no I would not. 

It's like I always say, "Just 'cause you're a friend of Sappho doesn't mean that's your whole sexual identity, and just because you're dating a Kryptonian dude doesn't mean you didn't love your last Thymesciranese girlfriend."

But I am hoping that it doesn't last, if only because "Dark" and "Cliana" are both ridiculous.


True Blood #4
This issue focuses on Alcide's backstory. Not the "back-" I'm interested in, Joe, but I know somepony out there is going to want to pick this issue up.

New Mutants #48
Technically Karma is in this issue because Doug re-lives her death scene in either a nightmare or a Necrosha-zombie rehash. Awesome. #notawesome


OH. EM. GEE. You guys, Steed and Peel is getting an on-going series!!!! If you don't understand how amazing this is, PLEASE go back and watch Diana Rigg as Mrs. Emma Peel in the British TV show The Avengers ("No relation." - Joss Whedon). It stands the test of time, and Rigg is SO kick-as. Plus, one of their stories, the one they are revisiting in this issue, was the genesis of Emma Frost and Marvel's Hellfire Club!!! (As some dude whose wit I am stealing once said, "Good artists borrow. Great artists steal." Chris Claremont definitely heard that!!!!)

Anyway, basically all of my dreams are coming true this week. Thank you, DragonCon-mas!
