SuperQueeros! for October 6th, 2014

DC takes the top spot this week with Batgirl and Earth 2! Plus, none of the characters are Batman's wife! SuperQueeros: all that's lesbian, gay, bisexual, transexual, transgender, and queer in comics today!

Batgirl #35
Batgirl may be getting rebooted (she literally has new boots), but that doesn't mean that Alysia is going to fade into the background! Her activism is already tying her into the main storyline so, even if she isn't rooming with Babs anymore, Yeoh is here to stay!

Earth 2 #27 and Earth 2: Future's End #1
I'm lumping these two issues together because the solicits sound almost exactly the same... Based on the covers I'd say there's a granddaughter-grandpa fight, then the Green Lantern makes a cameo in order to tell the Huntress and NuBatman to stop their family feuding and help fight some Parademons. And since it's Futures End, I'm assuming everyone gets turned into robots?

X-Force #10
The team meets up with a Character of the Month from X-Men: Legacy #300. I have totally forgotten this "ForgetMeNot" person...

Archie #660
Archie has four dates on the same night! And the solicit promises "cameos galore", which I take to mean "Yes, we shoehorned Kevin into this storyline about straight white male promiscuity." Which actually does make we want to read this issue, even if I just read the issue.

There's also a whole bunch of awesome horror comics coming out this week, including (The Chilling Adventures of) Sabrina #1, a dark take on the Sabrina mythology in the vain of Afterlife with Archie, and Klarion #1, the New 52's ongoing series about the witch-boy guardian of chaos himself. I don't know if there are any queer characters in ANY of them, but Sabrina is written by IRL superqueero Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa and I've always thought that being a Witch Boy is gender non-conformist.
