SuperQueeros! for May 15th, 2013

With four critically acclaimed titles, this week may be meagre, but it's amazing books only! Also, there's a lot of blood on every cover... SuperQueeros: all that's lesbian, gay, bisexual, transexual, transgendered, and queer in comics today!

Batwoman #20
The solicit is short and sweet: Batwoman is getting played. And the game is Bat vs Bat. But with the talking skeleton-man turning from Lawful Neutral to Puppeteering Evil, what role could be in store for his prisoner, Kate's sister Alice? And will his field agent, Chase, be able to stomach it?

X-Factor #256
M IS DEAD! (So I guess we know who will hold the throne of Hell by the end of this issue...) Normally I'd be psyched at M's power-up, and we ALL know that Peter David is basically my author idol, but this smacks of White Crown ascension: a promotion to CEO of the company's BFN division. And with Banshee's ascension to banshee occurring less than a year ago, this whole thing smacks of some sort of hybrid between Whedon's kill-a-character ethos and reckless disregard for female comic characters. Basically, I'm readying my ire. David, don't eff this up!

Batgirl #20
Last month Gail Simone gave us a new trans character in Batgirl's roommate, Alysia! Let's hope that this month our newest 'queero gets some story!

Wonder Woman #20
Err'body in this book gonna betray you. #Diana'sLesson
