Now that Babs has decided to hang up her cape, maybe will get some page-time for Geeks Out's favorite new superqueero, Alysia Yeoh!
- Hella climbed out of her hole of self-loathing to save Zari and Sara from becoming Evil Witches 2: The Next Generation, but he butt-head of an ex, Hector, only let her save one of them!
- She picked Sara, the one least resistive to his corruption and also the Squib daughter of Batu (Think Wonder Woman + Barda).
- But with Hector's evil magic having reduced our Superman/Hyperion allegory (and Hella's current boo), to a sweaty, wonkily-powered mess, who can take out this Hell-adjacent ex and save Zari???
- Also: Has Night Fox gotten back from whining and lounging at his parents' intergalactic estate? Isn't his boy toy, Agent Twilight, still being held captive by evil robots?? Oh, and speaking Robo-Ruth, this is all part of her master plan, right????
Avengers Arena #12
NICO ISN'T DEAD!!!! I guess that's one of the blessings of superqueero physics: it's main operating principle is drama. Anyway, now that her corpse has been reanimated, it looks like Nico is powered-up and looking for some vengeance! Hopefully superqueero Bloodstone won't end up a casualty in her wake!
Fearless Defenders #6
Valkyrie is the evil Doom Maiden of Rage!!! In addition to vomiting blood, it looks like she's also going to be ending the life of one of the superheroes who showed up to help her stop the Doom Maidens. But will it be her love interest, Dr. Annabelle Riggs? And will this start an Orphean journey to retrieve her from Hela's kingdom? Oh, and can they pick up Howlett's bf while they're down there?
Astonishing X-men #64
Bobby Drake is SNOWMAGGEDON! With NYC and much of the Northern Hemisphere covered in snow, is this the dawn of a new Age of Apocalypse, or can Iceman's teammates and exes, including superqueeros Karma, Northstar, and Mystique, save Bobby from a fate worse than Angel's?
Young Avengers #7
Now that they're exiled from Earth until Wiccan's charm from issue #1 can be reversed, the YA are picking up where Noh-Varr (winner of the Capie for best new costume design) and Hawkeye left off: ridding the universe of Skrull thugs! But how will Hulkling feel about bagging boys whose race he shares, even if he's also half Kree? And, whatever way it is, will we get to see some cuteness from his Capie award-winning relationship?
Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Season 9: Freefall #23
Willow and her friends are lagging behind the Siphon and his Slayer. Will they be able to stop him from reversing the course of time, or is the world destined to regain its magic and rewrite the last 22 issues? And what's Billy been getting up to back home?
Demon Knights #22
Vandal Savage has turned the giants to his side (of course...) and now he's on the attack! Will the Shining Knight and zher girlfriend Exoristos be able to protect the Grail????
I covered this issue on June 26th, but it definitely didn't come out digitally then. Check for it at you local comic book store this week, though!
