SuperQueeros! for November 30th, 2011

It's the fifth Wednesday of the month, and while a lot of X-titles are out this week, none of them have any 'queeros. Instead we have:

Herc #10
Baba Yaga?!?!?!?! Evidently the technically bi, currently de-powered Greek hero joins forces not only with Elektra this issue, but also with the witch of the chicken-footed house! So there may only be one superqueero this week, but he stars in a quality remix of multiple mythologies!

Scarlet Betch Episode 62: The Return of the Betch

Hey Betches!

We're back from an extended hiatus! We're so sorry for being gone for so long but compounded challenges of moving, crazy work schedules, and technical difficulties led us to where we are now. But we're so excited to be back recording and we've jam packed this episode with all the betchy news you've been waiting for! We grip about the changes and cancellations at Marvel, the inconsistency of Wonder Woman in the New 52, zoosexuality in Our Love is Real, and much much more!

Let us know what you think! Plus, any comics you think we missed in our coverage let us know! Send us a tweet @ScarletBetch or by email at

Marvel: Heads Up Kiddo, We're on Rocky Turf

So have you heard? Marvel is canceling Daken: Dark Wolverine! As well as basically ALL its (good) comics. What's up Marvel? Where are you hemorrhaging money that you can't publish comics that are NOT your lowest selling books? I mean, I thought Disney buying you was going to be this great funding extravaganza that would let you explore new markets and NOT pull another slight to the queers everywhere on par with the extradition of Xavin from Runaways. But I guess it's the opposite.

WTF, Marvel? W? T? F?

SuperQueeros! for November 23rd, 2011

I give thanks this Thanksgiving for all the LGB boys and girl in comics this week!

Teen Titans #3
The WAAAAALLLLLLLLLLL! I am pretty sure I'm going to love this guy! While most of what I have seen from this comic is Robin's lust for Wonder Girl (Give it up, Cass, it's totes your name. [Also, Tim give it up. Your OTP is still out there {<3 <3 <3 Stephanie!}]), I think the internal conflict of a flaming 'mo from a traditionally macho culture has the potential to create a varied and interesting character. And how bad is it that I think his lack of boobs will mean that he'll be developed as both a person and as Robin's GBF? ... ... It's pretty bad.

Edit: Evidently Avengers: Children's Crusade #8 doesn't come out again until next month! Bi-monthly publishing schedules are the worst!

Daken: Dark Wolverine #17
KAROLIIINAAAAA! Yep, the only lady this week is the incomparable Karolina Dean, beating some sense into the drug-addled Daken. I have to say, I hate the drug-taking that Daken's been doing, but its effect on his healing factor has certainly upped the stakes! Now where's some Mutant Growth Hormone so he can self-medicate the side effects of Heat?

Alpha Flight #6
How bummed are you that this isn't gonna be a continuing series? So bummed, right? I'm all sorts of put out... but this storyline is so boss that I can't complain too much. And if Alpha Flight became a series of miniseries, like The Autority was for a while and like Young Avengers is now, I'd be so down for it! Fingers crossed that Van Lente and Pak can tie our fav canooks into the next event storyline!

Justice League Dark #3
I'm just loving the slow slouch that this book has been bubbling along. And Madame Xanadu! So mysterious! What is she up to??? Does she want to help or hinder the Enchantress? And when are all the disparate pieces of this team going to converge? #soon #excited

SuperQueeros! for November 16th, 2011

EDIT: Did you catch what Clarice said at the end of New Mutants today? That she was "Tina's new girl"??? Is Blink gay now? Is Blink+ Karma a canon-able pairing that will bring my fav lesbrarian back into the superhero fold??? So many questions!!!

X-Factor #227
"In this issue a member of X-Factor dies."

And that's all she wrote. But for those of you who haven't read the preview I can say that the baddie they're battling eats souls, so all signs point to the death of the only soul-less character in the book. Though this is a Peter David book so that death might not be left-field enough... Either way, this Wednesday is THE WEDNESDAY!

Wonder Woman #3
It's time for the big paternity reveal! By now I'm sure you've heard that Wondy is not simply of clay born in the DCnU, but have you heard who her papa is? Because a lot of characters haven't, and it's about to shake up the Pantheon! But will Diana's new family relations welcome her with open arms or with openly armed Minotaurs?

Justice League #3
Wonder Woman makes her first JL appearance. So far we haven't seen Diana interact with much of the modern world in her own title, so it'll be very interesting to see how she interacts with the rest of the DCnu.

SuperQueeros! for November 9th, 2011

Batwoman #3
Betrayed by her father, training her cousin in heroics, dodging the unmasking efforts of her new girlfriend, unwittingly being hunted by a mysterious agent, and working to solve the supernatural kidnapping case in front of her, Batwoman is facing enemies from every angle, all while being haunted by the idea that her sister might still be alive. This issue marks the halfway point for this story arc, the last arc planned for the original Rucka/Williams run back in Detective Comics. It's sure to be good and it's sure to start getting ugly, so be sure pick up the hottest book on the stands* today!

(*That statistic is based only on the fact that both Jason and I love this book. Also because J. H. Williams III is AMAZING.)

Buffy The Vampire Slayer Season 9: Freefall #3
A boy slayer?!?!?!?! What is going on???? This book is getting crazy, what with the uncertain new status quo in a magic-less world, both in terms of mystical rules and the lives of our hapless Scoobies! How is Dawn and Xander's relationship progressing? What does Willow do all day? And how is the new guy slayer turning vamps back into the (dead) people they were before they turned?

New Avengers #18
V. Hand is sure to make an appearance as Normie Osborne gets the new Dark Avengers together. But will she be with him or against him? And with someone as embedded as thoroughly as she is, which side is she truly playing for? Does she even care???

Hack/Slash #10
This cover + the solicit has me thinking this issue is more Tarot, Witch of the Black Rose than Karolina Dean, Superqueero. But if you like ladies showin' some skin, this is probs a really good buy!
