Happy (American) Thanksgiving! This year I'm thankful that we got so many comics last week, because this week is pretty much a vacation for... SuperQueeros: all that's lesbian, gay, bisexual, transexual, transgender, and queer in comics today!

There are a lot of awesome, queer-inclusive titles out this week, so let's get to the listicle! SuperQueeros: all that's lesbian, gay, bisexual, transexual, transgender, and queer in comics today!
Jem and the Holograms #9
Now that the 'grams are celebrating the success of their first music video, who better to crash it than their perennial rivals and sometime girlfriends, The Misfits!

It's mermaid warfare! Can the 'janes settle this conflict before it turns into World War Sea?

The crew continue their quest to right the magic of the universe!
Harley Quinn #22
Zena Bendemova is back and her name is amazing!
Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Season 10 #21
In light of the constant demon invasions, Buffy has to form an alliance with the very people she is sworn to slay!

Rachel is coming out as a dead person! But will the town help their resident zombie solve her murder?
Earth 2 Society #6
Spotlight on the Hourman!
Orphan Black Helsinki #1

Oh em gee, the cover art game this week is ridonc. Take a selfie with your new comics this week because these issues are on fleek.
SuperQueeros: all that's lesbian, gay, bisexual, transexual, transgender, and queer in comics today!
The Queen Bae of cover artists, Kevin Wada, strikes again with this #gorgeo Catwoman cover. Look at that back tattoo! Look at that dress! But seriously, please, look at it for me. Because I can't. Because I literally died.
(Oh, also Catwoman #2, Eiko Hasigawa, is ditching the alias she shares with her ex, Selina, to take on the mantle of her Yakuza father and exact vengence on his killers. Unfortunately, due to operatic circumstances, that leaves Selina and her family right in Eiko's sights.)
Constantine the Hellblazer #6
What?! What is this cover you give us, comic book gods? Is this not John Constantine, the most famous magical bisexual (Editor's Note: Redundant, all bisexuals are magical.) on a date in a terrifying hellscape version of New York with the super hot dude he was cruising in issue #2?! Is this not specifically what I asked for for Christmas? Thank you, comic book gods, thank you!
Teen Titans #13
Ugh. Power Girl is so cool. Look at this cover: ameezing hair, a gold chest circle subtly referencing her namesake's signature costume feature, and a tiny blue jacket that perfectly foils Kara's tiny red cape. As the Titans regroup after Kon's apparent suicide, who better to turn this ratchet set of teens around than the coolest Power Girl not on Earth-2?
The Ultimates #1
This is it. Marvel's answer to The Authority: Blue Marvel, Captain Marvel II (a.k.a. Spectrum), Captain Marvel VII (a.k.a. Ms. Marvel), Black Panther, mother-luvin' Galactus, and most importantly, the biggest heavy hitter on this team, Miss America Chavez. For ultimate problems, you need ultimate solutions. And a dimension-kicking lesbian.

Someone on the cover of Extraordinary X-Men #1 is queer! And I'm not talking fan theories, people. This is canon! SuperQueeros: all that's lesbian, gay, bisexual, transexual, transgender, and queer in comics today!
Uncanny X-Men #600
Secret Wars was a big hit in all respects but one: it delayed the release of Uncanny X-Men #600 and left us in limbo on whether or not adult Iceman is as queer as his time-displaced younger self. This month we get the answer to that question and (spoilers, but not really)... he is! That means we get well-adjusted gay Iceman in All-New X-Men and broody, newly-outed Iceman in Extraordinary X-Men! Talk about one character representing a diverse community, am I right? Anyway, to celebrate we also get...
The mystery of the post-Secret Wars status quo for mutants is that Terrigen is killing some of them and sterilizing the rest. Or, as I like to subtitle this scenario, welcome to Decimation II: Children of Men! Iceman is teaming up with Storm, Jean, and the rest of the X-Men to save the mutants or die trying. Personally I'm hoping for a combination of saving the mutants and Bobby finding out that Old Man Logan's new code name is Chicken Hawk...
With Bobby and Bobby out on the dating scene, Midnighter is left to represent the homosexual bourgeois fantasy of protecting your sweetie from the machinations of dastardly villains! But will Midnighter take into account that this beau is mortal, or will his assumption that every silver fox has a Kryptonian-level healing factor lead to some miscalculations in planning the rescue mission?
Harley Quinn and Power Girl #5
It's the climactic issue of this miniseries, which I have deduced because the solicitation is just a bunch of climax jokes.
Deadpool gets a number one! But will anybody buy it???
Herc gets an ongoing series too. I heard that Marvel was planning to erase his bisexuality, but unless he makes a gross face at the idea of pashing dudes, I don't see how they will be able to penetrate my head-canon.
