SuperQueeros! for December 24th (and 31st!), 2014

Don't know what to spend those gift cards on? I have some suggestions, for both this week, and next! SuperQueeros: all that's lesbian, gay, bisexual, transexual, transgender, and queer in comics today!

Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Season 10 #10
Now that the Scoobies guard the book that can re-write reality, they are the busiest librarians in all the world!

Earth 2: World's End #12 and #13
This week: The Avatars of Earth vs. the Furies of Apokolips! next week: The Huntress dies?!

Avengers and X-Men: AXIS #9
It's the end of the storyline! I hope Mystique turns good! The power of Jennifer Lawrence's acting surely can accomplish that, no?

Death of Wolverine: Logan Legacy #7
Daken, Mystique, and the rest of the Wolvie crowd will set down Logan's legacy this issue. Right after they kill that vampire dude.

She-Hulk #11
The Blue File is finally closed: She-Hulk vs. Titania!

Uncanny X-Men #29
Everyone is in this cover! It's the pivotal will-reading issue!

SuperQueeros! for December 17th, 2014

An era is ending! Batwoman's three year reign may be coming to a close in a few months, but you can still pick her up this week. SuperQueeros: all that's lesbian, gay, bisexual, transexual, transgender, and queer in comics today!

Batwoman #37
It's the end of the road for Batwoman, one of the New 52's break-out-hits-turned-controversey-generator. Unfortunately, switching to a 'queero author didn't make up for DC's misstep, and the title is on it's last storyline. Be sure to pick up this title before it's too late!

The Wicked + The Divine #6
With the first storyline behind us, it's time for FAN-demonium!

Avengers and X-men: AXIS #8
Can the Scarlet Witch undo her inversion? Or will Mystique be leading the Astonishing Avengers forever? 

Earth 2: World's End #11
Mister Miracle fights Darkseid for the fate of two worlds!

There are a lot of awesome books that may or may not have superqueeros, including Ms. Marvel #10 and Harbinger: Faith! Also, Wonder Woman and the latest Multiversity issue.

Sunday, December 7, 2014

SuperQueeros! for December 10, 2014

Is it Ragnarok-ing outside? Rachel Rising + Afterlife with Archie bring the zombies, Darkseid lands on Earth 2, and Batgirl wears sequins. But what do these plagues portend? Oh, Rachel Grey is visiting the Shi'ar empire? Yeah, that explains it. SuperQueeros: all that's lesbian, gay, bisexual, transexual, transgender, and queer in comics today!

Rachel Rising #30
Rachel confronts her killer this issue! Whoever writes the solicits for this series needs to be consulted though. They tease that she might not make it out alive. Spoilers, dude: She already didn't. #zombienarratives

Afterlife with Archie #7
Speaking of zombie heroines, things aren't looking too good for Betty. This issue starts the series' second story arc: "Betty, RIP". Fingers crossed, Ms. Cooper!

Batgirl #37
Batgirl has an impersonator! But... why?

Earth 2: Worlds End #10

The October Faction #3
The kids hatch a plot to get their dad off the sofa and back into the monster hunting biz!

Amazing X-Men #14
Mystique and her son have one of their famous heart-to-hearts.

X-Force #13
Meme was Hope the whole time?! Please let this cover be deceiving!

X-Men #22
It's the last issue in the space arc. Will Rachel genocide the species who murdered her family (excluding her time-displaced mother and siblings)? Will the Shi'ar realize that preemptive murder to prevent your own extinction is actually a self-fulfilling prophecy?

Sunday, November 30, 2014

SuperQueeros! for December 3rd, 2014

Another DC-domination week, and the relaunch of a fan-favorite title! SuperQueeros: all that's lesbian, gay, bisexual, transexual, transgender, and queer in comics today!

Secret Six #1
The lead story this week is that Gail Simone is finally giving us the DCnU's version of her fan favorite team! Of course, the only familiar faces are Catman and Black Alice, but can Vandal Savage be that far behind? And will she get back her Knockout? And, in the meantime, what superqueero will Simone be bringing to the table to tide us over?

Chew #45
Is Colby going to fry up his old partner, cybernetic super fowl Poyo?

Earth 2 #29/Earth 2: World's End #9
The fight gets taken to Apokolips in World's End, while Babs and Dick's son gets ferried out of Chicago in the regular issue.

Gotham Academy #3
So what IS detention like in Gotham?

Archie #662
Kevin's on the cover, so I'm assuming he's inside too!

Tuesday, November 25, 2014

SuperQueeros! for November 26, 2014

Not a lot of comics this week, but what there are feature a few familiar 'queeros that we haven't seen in a while.  SuperQueeros: all that's lesbian, gay, bisexual, transexual, transgender, and queer in comics today!

Amazing X-Men #13
Finally, some Anole! Nightcrawler and Northstar leap to the rescue as Anole's deepest fears run amok in NYC! But what could a perennial fan favorite like Anole truly fear?

Earth 2: World's End #8
Constantine joins the fight! Now if only he and Alan Scott would share some sexual tension, all my hellblazingest dreams would come true!

Prophet Strikefile #2
More of John Ka's friends and enemies make their debut in this encyclopedia of the Prophet-verse.

Sunday, November 16, 2014

SuperQueeros! for November 19th, 2014

Last week may have been light on superqueeros, but this week the law of conservation of queers means that we've got a ton of... SuperQueeros: all that's lesbian, gay, bisexual, transexual, transgender, and queer in comics today!

Lumberjanes #8
The Lumberjanes have reached the end of their mystery, and the answer is... sibling rivalry between ancient Greek twin gods! Will they be able to settle the rivalry, or at least come out alive?

Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Season 10 #9
Sunnydale homecoming turns sour when the crew realizes that Andrew is in need of some help defending the reality-defining book of Vampyr!

Batwoman #36
Kate meets up - and teams up - with Jason Blood, a.k.a. The Demon!

Teen Titans #4
The teens meet up with the mastermind behind the team of operatives and cyborgs they've been fighting since issue one. What commentary on America's youth and its relationship to adulthood will this villain represent?

Avengers and X-Men: Axis #6
The heroes and villains are at each other's throats, and the solicit promises the birth of the Astonishing Avengers.  But who are these new Avengers? Perhaps the villains mentioned in the solicit: Quicksilver, Magneto, Mystique, and Loki?

Morning Glories #42
This issue marks an explicit DECLARATION! (...I hear.)

X-Force #12
Fantomex takes down his own team because narcissism! He's kind of Deadpool-ing out of narrative plausibility these days, eh?

Earth 2: World's End #7
The war continues! I've been assuming that Green Lantern is in this, but he hasn't made any of the covers yet, so... who knows. Maybe you? Let me know, if you do!

And some possibly queer-inclusive issues: Multiversity: Pax Americana #1.3, Wonder Woman's post-Azzarello relaunch in Wonder Woman #36, and Uncanny X-Men #28.

Sunday, November 9, 2014

SuperQueeros! for November 12th, 2014

It's a pretty light week for superqueeros, so I'm going to spotlight some interesting titles too. But "light" does not mean "totally bereft"; we do have a couple of... SuperQueeros: all that's lesbian, gay, bisexual, transexual, transgender, and queer in comics today!

Batgirl #36
It's time for Babs to hit the books! But just as classes get going, Batgirl has to tangle with the Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen of katana-wielding motorcycle assassins! (They have their own clothing line. And one of them is married to an older Frenchman. I assume. Because they're twins.)

Earth 2: Worlds End #6
The fight against the forces of Apokolips continues! Man, once you un-bottle those BoomTubes, they just don't stop vomiting hell-spawn onto your doorstep!

And now for some cool stuff I saw in my research: Kitchen #1 is an entry in the gangster genre, but for this mob, all the heads are women. Klarion #2 has a kiss that "changes everything" and, even though I'm 99.9% sure it's from a lady, I'm crossing my fingers so much for a gentleman-demon! All New Ultimates #10 has a Bombshell cover, Batman Eternal #32 gets back to The Spoiler, and Thor #2 continues the awesome new direction for the series! Oh, and speaking of diversity in comics, All New Captain America #1 is out this week! And Sam's sidekick is Nomad! 

Tuesday, November 4, 2014

SuperQueeros! for November 5th, 2014

Red and green this week as Kevin Keller starts celebrating Christmas, Green Lantern fights the fires of Apokolips' Furies, and Agent Brand and Marvel Girl find out secrets of their pasts. SuperQueeros: all that's lesbian, gay, bisexual, transexual, transgender, and queer in comics today!

Archie #661
It's Kevin Keller's first encounter with Jingles, Riverdale's tiniest elf with the biggest attitude! Of course, since I only started reading Archie because of Kevin, it's mine too, so I'm relying entirely on the solicit for that judgment of Jingles. Novice though I am, I'm pretty certain that Jingle's annoying 'tude is big enough to put Kevin's life - or at least his pre-Thanksgiving Christmas issue - in danger!

Earth 2 #28 // Earth 2: World's End #5
Apokolips' Four Furies are burning Earth 2 around them, and Green Lantern is cornered by an old enemy: Solomon Grundy (re-born this Wednesday)!

Chew #44
The solicit says that this issue will make you physically ill. So... buy it?

Hack/Slash: Son of Samhain #5
The conclusion of bisexual Cassie hack's search for a new slasher partner.

X-Men #21
Family secrets galore are revealed this issue as the X-Men search for some deep space denouement!

Monday, October 27, 2014

SuperQueeros! For October 29th, 2014

It's Halloween once more! I better see some of you dressed as the God of War, Diana, this year! SuperQueeros: all that's lesbian, gay, bisexual, transexual, transgender, and queer in comics today!
Wonder Woman #35
It had to come to an end eventually. That's right, it's the grand finale of Brian Azzarello's character-defining run on Wonder Woman wraps up this week. Diana is all set to defeat her older half-brother while her little Togepi kid is revving up to fulfill his prophecy. But what of the "surprises" the spicier speaks of? And what status quo will we be left with when this issue closes? Who will it be on the throne of Olympus?

Rachel Rising #29
Next month Rachel finds out her killer. This month, though, she has to deal with a cult. Wacky!

Harbinger Omegas #3
Toyo and Peter go head to head!

Saga #24
Alana's descent into drug-fueled acting continues! Plus "The Brand"! And "Sweet Boy"!

Sunday, October 19, 2014

SuperQueeros! for October 22nd, 2014

Halloween is fast approaching, and all the comics are getting in the spirit, starting with BuffySuperQueeros: all that's lesbian, gay, bisexual, transexual, transgender, and queer in comics today!

Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Season 10 #8
And your Halloween present from the Scooby gang is... a return to Sunnydale! And there's a magical, monsterous party going down at the Hellmouth this year, thanks to Willow and the gang's re-magik-ing of Earth. I wonder what everyone is going as? 

Earth 2: World's End #3
The War for the World continues, and masks start making a big difference! Under the helm of Dr. Fate, what are Nabu's intentions, now that he has control?

Multiversity: The Just #1
Reality gets in costume with thus celebrity superheo What If...? when Grant Morrison's multiverse-spanning narrative hits Earth-16. But the real question is... who's going to come out on the cover of People? (Fair Warning: It may be no one. [But there is that gay Flash character in the main Multiversity arc, so I can't imagine they wouldn't pass up the opportunity...])

Wicked + Divine #5
The solicit only says... "Showtime". Spooky.

Amazing X-Men #12
Now that the Wendi-demic has spread to US soil, Northstar and his twin sister are the only things standing in the way of us and furred out costumes for everyone!

Avengers and X-men: Axis #3
Mystique has joined the fight against the Red Onslaught, so this book is relevant to our list! I wonder who she is going to dress as to fight giant adamantium Sentinels? Also, where did that much adamantium come from? I thought this was supposed to be a rare metal.

She-Hulk #9
Shulkie and team join up with Steve Rogers against their ultimate courtroom adversary: the Daredevil! (The Halloween tie-in is that he's a devil. Of sorts.)

X-Force #11
Psylocke and crew have to try to recruit the mutant version of The Silence. Can they remember to do it? And will anyone be wearing a TARDIS dress? And can it be Dr. Nemesis?

Sunday, October 12, 2014

SuperQueeros! for October 15th, 2014

Look at that gorge-o Kevin Wada cover! DC is, once again, killing it with the queer-inclusivity this week, plus we get Noelle Stevenson's Lumberjanes, and I missed a horror comic from last week! SuperQueeros: all that's lesbian, gay, bisexual, transexual, transgender, and queer in comics today!

Lumberjanes #7
Now that the 'janes have the knowledge they've been seeking, will they be able to get past a fickle foe from their past? That's right, it's the terrible return of... The Boys Camp! (Plus, have you guys seen? You can pre-order a copy of Nimona now!)

Batwoman #35
Kate finds herself in the company of Gotham's baddest bogeypeople as she joins forces with Red Alice, Ragman, the Demon, and Clayface. But what could cause the city's favorite socialite vigilante to join up with her sworn enemies? That's just what this issue seeks to unearth!

Teen Titans #3
A Kevin Wada cover?! Sweet-as! Oh, and the action centers around Raven this issue when her night off turns into a throw-down!

Earth 2 World's End #2
Enter the first horseman, the woman known only as... WAR!

PLUS, last week's The October Faction #1 implied either that the son is gay, or that he just handles homophobic bullying like a superstar. So... I'm counting him! Also, Morph may make an appearance in Uncanny X-Men #27, but Cyke is the focus of the solicit. And, while the new "best there is at what she does", Kamala Kahn, finds out some more about her past in Ms. Marvel #9, the old "best there is at what he does" faces his grim demise in Death of Wolverine #4. That's right, Wolverine dies! Again. Presumably not to be resurrected by the Hand this time. Can the Hand resurrect you twice? Also, how does that work? Is Northstar just a magically animated corpse, or did his temporary death have literally no consequences?

Sunday, October 5, 2014

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.

Monday, September 29, 2014

SuperQueeros! for October 1st, 2014

We've got a more eclectic mix of media this week, from classic comics at your LCS to some less IRL comics. All of them, though, bring the superqueeroics! SuperQueeros: all that's lesbian, gay, bisexual, transexual, transgender, and queer in comics today!

Rat Queens #8
The solicit says that, if you can't beat the Old God's occultists, join them, then shiv them in the back with a rusty blade! #RatQueensStyle Sounds like things are getting interesting in for Betty and the Queens!

Burn the Orphanage: Reign of Terror #5
The second miniseries of Burn the Orphanage is finishing up this week, so if you're in the mood read about Bear, a gay bear with the literal heart of a bear, beat the snot out of MannCorp, why not pick up this issue, the prior four in this series, and the three issue series that started his story!

X-Men #20
Psylocke and the X-Men take on the Genespliced, a troupe of alien hybrids!

Morning Glories #41
I've gotten behind on my Morning Glories, so all I can say is what the solicits say: "Nowhere else to go." Gulp.

Thor #1
It's the debut of the new Thor, as penciled by Russell Dauterman!

Plus! Maybe you remember Terry Blas's Briar Hollow webcomic? Well issue #6 is starting, and it's starting out sexy! Plus, if you pop over to Northwest Press, you can order a copy of Dash #1, a queer noir that came out this month!

And in the queer adjacent category we have Gotham Academy #1 and Wonder Woman #34!

Monday, September 22, 2014

SuperQueeros! for September 24th, 2014

It's good-bye to the Lumberjanes (for now), and hello to the most awesome Chew team-up ever! SuperQueeros: all that's lesbian, gay, bisexual, transexual, transgender, and queer in comics today!

Lumberjanes #6
It's the last issue of this hit series! Now that the team is fully formed, will they be able to solve the mystery by returning to the scene of the crime? And will Molly and Mal admit their feelings?

Rachel Rising #28
Rachel tries her hand at some magic of her own...

Chew #43
Olive, Poyo, and Colby. Need we see more? No, we don't.

Amazing X-Men #11
Northstar's old and new teams collide in the Spirit Realm!

Harbinger Omega #2
Kris and the rest of the team are in the sights of Harada. Can they make it through a miniseries subtitled "Omega"?

Monday, September 15, 2014

SuperQueeros! for September 17th, 2014

It's Future's End for the DC superqueeros, while Archie's crew takes to the streets! Plus, Wicked + Divine! SuperQueeros: all that's lesbian, gay, bisexual, transexual, transgender, and queer in comics today!

Kevin Keller #15
Now that he's getting underwritten by his bestie, Veronica, Kevin's a real life superhero! But for a street level bruiser like Batman or Power Man, and now THE EQUALIZER, the street has to have some criminals to beat, and Riverdale's about as wholesome as... well, as Archie comics! 

Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Season 10 #7
Xander and Spike have the keys to the magical rule book and a couple of torches for the Summers girls. What could go wrong?
Batwoman: Future's End #1
In the future, Kate is a VAMPIRE!

Wicked + Divine #4
The solicit tells us that "the mystery is solved". But at my last count there wasn't just ONE mystery. So which one are they talking about? And will Lucy get out of her cell?

Teen Titans: Future's End #1
The Titans are DEAD! Maybe Bunker got replaced by a boyfriend we haven't met yet?

Batman Eternal #24
Spoiler takes center stage! Squee!

Wonder Woman: Future's End #1
What dark future is there for Diana, God of War?

Archie #659
Archie and pals join Sabrina at the zoo. Hey, has Kevin met Sabrina yet?

Monday, September 8, 2014

SuperQueeros! for September 10, 2014

This week brings back people you thought long gone. People and... SuperQueeros: all that's lesbian, gay, bisexual, transexual, transgender, and queer in comics today!

Batgirl: Future's End #1
Simone gives us a peek at her future for Babs, as well as for Alysia and James Gordon. But after Batgirl's bae gets fridged and she quits the superhero game, who will carry on her legacy? And will they be able to draw her out of retirement?

Morning Glories #40
It looks like Jade is back!

Prophet Strike File #1
Get the low down on all the characters in the Prophet-verse, including John Ka! 

Plus, X-Force #9 sees Psylocke and her team take on MI-13, Betty and Veronica #272 sees the girls leave Riverdale and their GBF, Kevin, behind, and Ms. Marvel dogsits!

Tuesday, September 2, 2014

SuperQueeros! for September 3rd, 2014

Just three comics this week, plus some of my favorite costumes from Dragon Con! SuperQueeros: all that's lesbian, gay, bisexual, transexual, transgender, and queer in comics today!

Lumberjanes #5
Now that the 'janes have counselor Jen on their side, can anything stop their mystery-solving momentum? Probably not, but the solicit has some ominous rumblings about one of the Lumberjanes falling by the wayside... Could it be the meddling of one adventuring-starting Bear Woman?

Monday, August 25, 2014

SuperQueeros! for August 27th, 2014

It's quality over quantity this week for... SuperQueeros: all that's lesbian, gay, bisexual, transexual, transgender, and queer in comics today!

Saga #22
It's been a while since we've seen Upsher and Doff, and I'm not sure if we will this arc, but this cover is definitely bangin'!

Avengers Undercover #9
The (good guy) cavalry has arrived and it's time for our team of supes to decide on their suffix: will they be -hero, or -villain? And can Bloodstone break free from the Son of Satan before Damian makes that decision for him?

Sunday, August 17, 2014

SuperQueeros! for August 20th, 2014

Good golly! There sure is a whole lot of reality warping this week. Not the least of which is my understanding of the flow of time: I think this is the second August book for some of these... SuperQueeros: all that's lesbian, gay, bisexual, transexual, transgender, and queer in comics today!

Teen Titans #2
The Titans' new reality of being Vine's next top starlettes is setting in. Time for some Superman poses!

Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Season 10 #6
TV show and comic collide as childhood fantasies become weapons to the team's newest demonic challenge!

Batwoman #34
Nocturna... Maggie... Kate... How does this polygon fit together? And will everyone make it out of this issue once the pieces fall into place? 

Original Sins #5
It's the end of the YA's team-up with evil! Will the Hood permanently mind-wipe two of the universes most excellent superqueeros?

Wicked + Divine #3
Lucy(fer) is the best (currently imprisoned) superqueero ever! But how will her new demon get her out of prison when the Morrigan has been supplanted by a young upstart god?

Batman Eternal #20
Didn't Batman Eternal #18 just come out? Anyway, there's possible Batwoman involvement in this issue, so who cares if Batman Eternal scoffs at mere numbers!

Multiversity #1
Grant Morrison. 52 Universes. One of them has to have a superqueero. I wonder if it's Captain Carrot?

Tuesday, August 12, 2014

SuperQueeros! for August 13th, 2014

One last hurrah for Simone's Batgirl, the Alpha Flight teams up with Northstar's new team, and is there romance in the (dungeon) air for Bloodstone?! ... SuperQueeros: all that's lesbian, gay, bisexual, transexual, transgender, and queer in comics today!

Batgirl #34
It's Batgirl's last issue before she moves out of her apartment and goes back to school! (Doesn't she already have one doctorate? Greedy!) Anyway, it seems like this may be our last chance to catch some Alysia Yeoh for a while, so pick up the issue to say farewell!

Amazing X-Men #10
Northstar's in trouble, and he thinks of Kyle! Tres cute, and the next best thing to panel time for our favorite x-spouse. Let's see if Jean-Paul and the rest of the Amazing X-Men can help clean up the Wendigo epidemic in the Great White North now that Jean-Paul's old team, Alpha Flight, is saddling up to lend a hand!

Avengers Undercover #8
Three months have passed since the last issue and... is that a kiss I see for Bloodstone?! Villainous romance, <3 div="">

X-Force #8
Psylocke and the team run afoul of M13 and Pete Wisdom.

X-Men #18
Psylocke and the team head to space for some S.W.O.R.D. and Shi'ar time. Psylocke sure keeps a busy schedule...

Tuesday, August 5, 2014

SuperQueeros! for August 6th, 2014

Now that the collective comic-verse has some mainstay superqueeros, they keep showing up in ensemble titles, like Batman Eternal or Archie. As a result, it's a full week for SuperQueeros: all that's lesbian, gay, bisexual, transexual, transgender, and queer in comics today!

Rachel Rising #27
Rachel is closing in on her killer, but things may get a little hectic when someone thinks they're close to getting their secret outed. Their deep, dark secret...

Batman Eternal #18
Batwoman, accompanied by Jason Todd and Batman, is on the scene to help save James Gordon!

Earth 2 #26
Just when Val-Zod and Green Lantern could use a hand in defeating Kal-El, a Boom Tube opens to reveal... Power Girl!

Harbinger Omegas #1
The post-Harada-calypse Valiant-verse is under the microscope in this miniseries, especially as it relates to the lives of the surviving Renegades, like superqueero Kris.

Archie #658
Kevin Keller is part of the main cast now, so I imagine he'll be showing up to help Betty turn the tables on Archie's end-of-summer dating spree.

She-Hulk #7
The Blue Folio investigation continues! This time, with Pym particles! (And another amaze-balls Kevin Wada cover!)

Tuesday, July 29, 2014

SuperQueeros! for July 30th, 2014

Ah, the hallowed fifth Wednesday, haven of dark horses and missed deadlines. Though the pickings are Slim, they're X-actly the sort of comics we love: made by and about... SuperQueeros: all that's lesbian, gay, bisexual, transexual, transgender, and queer in comics today!

Uncanny X-Men #24
Xavier's will is read by guest star She-Hulk! Who wants to bet that Cyclops inherited the X-Mansion?

X-Men #17
Storm's daughter continues her time traveling trek to save Jubilee's son!

Cyclops #3
Before he heads off to draw Thor, Russell Dauterman gives us a few more issues of young Cyc in space!

Tuesday, July 22, 2014

SuperQueeros! for July 23rd, 2014

Kevin Keller, BtVS, Young Avengers, Saga, and more! This week it's all old classics for SuperQueeros: all that's lesbian, gay, bisexual, transexual, transgender, and queer in comics today!

Life With Archie #37
One year after the momentous events of issue #36 - you know, when Archie got shot and died? - we meet back up with the gang to see just what life is like without Archie. As my boyfriend said, decrying angst-loving fans like me, when he found out that Archie had died, "Y'all have ruint comics!"

Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Season 10 #5
The Scoobies continue their fight against Dracula! but now that he's cottoned on to the new world order and upgraded his supernatural prowess, will our kids be able to box the badder boogieman?

Original Sins #4
So now our heroes are doing bad things with a bad guy for an ostensibly good end. In a series about exposing secrets, this can't end well, can it?

Batman Eternal #16
I finally found where all the Batman 'queeros went! It's in this title! I don't know if any are slated for an appearance this issue, but Harper will be in this issue, so it's possible her brother will show.

Saga #21
Time to clean up a murder!

Afterlife with Archie, a normally very queer-inclusive title, will be focusing on Sabrina's experiences in the Netherworld this month. Meanwhile, at the Big Two, Wonder Woman is kicking off the end of her mythology-changing storyline while Storm is just getting started on hers!

Tuesday, July 15, 2014

SuperQueeros! for July 16, 2014

Rejoice! After last month's outing of everyone's favorite Renegade and this week's re-launch of an old chestnut, it is a veritable renaissance for the... SuperQueeros: all that's lesbian, gay, bisexual, transexual, transgender, and queer in comics today!

Harbinger #25
Though a woman was refrigerated to do it, Kris is now the first SuperQueero from Valiant! This double-sized issue is set to focus more on tying up Toyo Harada, but after he's gone the Harbingers will be left in uncharted, Sapphic waters!

Teen Titans #1
YES! Bunker is back! He, Wonder Girl, Raven, Beast Boy, and Red Robin are superheroic counselors to tomorrow's metahumans in this iteration of one of DC's most excellent teams. It sounds like we'll be getting freak-of-the-week, teeenager style. Like Earth 2 plus Avengers Academy/Arena/Undercover.

Life with Archie #36
But, as with all things, this week can't be all reboots and fresh starts. The awesome Life with Archie is closing it's metaphorical doors with, what else, The Death of Archie. Tune in for what may be Clay Walker's last appearance!

Batwoman #33
Batwoman's tumble with Nocturna sends her to the lair of the Night-Thief!

Rat Queens #7
It's attack of the Elder Gods in Rat Queens this week! Can the Queens beat back this eldritch horde?

X-Men #16
Psylocke, Jubes, and the rest of Storm's team take on the Future!

Honorable Mentions
The fabulous She-Hulk (#6) continues to smash her way through The Blue File, outfitted in the best Kevin Wada covers to ever hit the stands. Meanwhile, over in the X-verse, we have the X-Men's 100th Anniversary Special (who were created 51 years ago...), as well as "The Last Will and Testament of Charles Xavier" in Uncanny X-Men #23. I don't think there's much of a chance that we will get to see Morph, but you never know! Lastly, the latest issue of Wicked & Divine is out, which gets included because, with gods inhabiting mortal bodies, there has to be someone queering it up!
