SuperQueeros! for April 28th, 2010

I'm like Cerebro for queer comic book characters; these are my findings:

Wildcats #22
Wow. I am continually impressed by the balls it takes to commit to and coordinate the line-wide re-haul/mega-event that Wildstorm is going through ATM. The two page spread in this month's issue of Wildcats that shows the current full cast of the book is staggering. And it's got Apollo and Midnighter front and center! Definitely the book I'm most looking forward to this week!

The Authority: The Lost Year #8
...and it's a double dose this week of our favourite married superqueeros because, according to comixology, this issue didn't ship last week. ;-P

Detective Comics #864
Well, Batwoman is absent from the main story this issue (and the next two), but the Question back-up is still queer-positive and queer-inclusive, so don't take the title off your pull list just yet! First, make a big scene about how Batwoman isn't in this issue and that you'll pick it back up when it has 100% more lesbian per serving! #myplan

Wonder Woman #43
Simone continues to break new ground for the mythology of Wonder Woman even as her term as writer comes to an end! This issue we get some insight into the costume as well as some further development for the character of Wonder Woman's "aunt". Who is she? Why does she want to strip mine Earth? Where did she get her snake earrings (they are funky)? #allthisandmore

Gotham City Sirens #11
The Sirens work to "stem the madness and mayhem" of Gotham as something more evil than our anti-heroines runs amok in the Big City. Does anyone else see this whole scenario as antithetical to who these characters are? Shouldn't at least Harley revel in the madness? I mean, isn't that her thing???? #stillLezYay

Madame Xanadu #22
GLAAD-endorsed Madame Xanadu is coming to a head as the title sets up a final conflict between sisters Morgana and the Madame. I don't know much else, but the solicitation makes it sound like a fun read!
