SuperQueeros! for December 30, 2015

It's the last Wednesday of 2015! While you contemplate what issues you will buy to round out your year, let me offer some suggestions: the break out comic of 2015 and a couple of classic 'queeros. SuperQueeros: all that's lesbian, gay, bisexual, transexual, transgender, and queer in comics today!

Jem and the Holograms #10
After nine issues of glam girl power, the series shifts perspective to get Rio's take on the 'Grams and the Misfits, as well as the frontwoman who is stealing his heart. On the eve of 2016, be sure to catch this new take on JatH, a series that defined good comics in 2015.

Rat Queens #14
Dee connects with her brother, Hannah reunites with her father, and Betty and Violet face down an ice dragon. Sounds like the holidays to me!

Morning Glories #49
It's part 1 of "The Election", the finale to season two of Morning Glories! Who will die? Who will resurrect? Who will become class president?

Deadpool and Cable: Split Second #1
Our fav pansexual merc and his time-jumping buddy are back to foil plots, enact schemes, and otherwise mess with the fate of the Marvel U!

Tuesday, December 22, 2015

SuperQueeros! for December 23rd, 2015

Whatever your plans for Friday, you'll probably need some reading material. Why not stock up on these... SuperQueeros: all that's lesbian, gay, bisexual, transexual, transgender, and queer in comics today!

New Avengers #4

Fresh off of their first match-up against the Maker, our team of 'queeros takes to space to fight... a space wizard! That's basically what Billy and Teddy's kids would be, right? So is this going to be some sort of "My Son is Kang!" story twists?

Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 10 #4
As the Scoobies pursue their own agendas, they begin to work at odds. Can our team survive these betrayals?

Extraordinary X-Men #4
For a series that started out slow, things have certainly sped up! Things are getting so intense that they're starting to look a little... Sinister!

Teen Titans #15
The Titans take on Professor Pyg! I am so into that sentence!

Chew #53
I guess the answer to an avian flu is to go back to the beginning: DINOSAURS.

Tuesday, December 15, 2015

SuperQueeros! for December 16th, 2015

Ah, the holidays: a time of joy and reflection. For example, this week I am joyfully reflecting on how far my favorite comic books have come. Lumberjanes are finally tackling my favorite monster, the Spoiler returns to Batgirl, and Jem scored her band a holiday special! SuperQueeros: all that's lesbian, gay, bisexual, transexual, transgender, and queer in comics today!

Lumberjanes #21
You guys, it took two year, but we finally made it to the promised land! It's time for the Lumberjanes to have... werewolf adventures!!!

Jem and the Holograms Holiday Special #1
When the 'grams and the Misfits draw each other in a Secret Santa, will they buy into the spirit of the season or redefine the phrase "war on Christmas"?

Batgirl #46
It only took four years, but Stephanie Brown is back in Batgirl! Though Steph's not donning the cowl, this Babs and Brown team-up is sure to rock your socks off!

Secret Six #9
The crew takes on Elder Gods! But how will maddening horrors affect people who are already quite mad?

All-New X-Men #2
Iceman and the gang take on the Ghosts of Cyclops!

Harley Quinn #23
Harley splits her gang in two so that she can rescue her boo on one front and defeat her bitter rival on the other! Plus, Mason is naked on the cover. 

Adventure Time with Fionna and Cake: Card Wars #6
Cake's adversary is Gumball, and he's starting the game with a penultimate move! Without room to maneuver, can Cake win the Card Wars?

Tuesday, December 8, 2015

SuperQueeros! for December 9th, 2015

There's a ton of SuperQueero-inclusive comics this week, including a brand new comic about Victorian 'queeros, plus a holiday special that's piqued my interest. SuperQueeros: all that's lesbian, gay, bisexual, transexual, transgender, and queer in comics today!

InSeXts #1

A woman scorned by her husband and society accepts a dark gift from her lady lover and uses it to exact her bloody, erotic revenge. The premise of this new title hits all the benchmarks for a good horror comic: It's simple, subversive, gratuitous, and awesome! Whether the book lives up to its solicits, however, is yours to discern.

Constantine The Hellblazer #7
As I learned on the podcast Journey Into Misery, Constantine was first introduced in the pages of Swamp Thing in the 1980s. Today Constantine is well into his third continuing series and Swamp Thing is swinging by for a guest appearance! The only question remaining is which of their classic character dynamics they will be repeating. Will they help each other discover more about their powers? Will they manipulate each other into losing touch with their remaining humanity? Who knows! Maybe they'll do that thing where they possess each other's bodies to conceive an anti-christ! #crazykids

Ultimates #2
How do you solve a problem like Maria Galactus? Ms. America Chavez and the Ultimates are here to find out! And by the end, like almost all his heralds before him, the giant purple devourer of worlds is going to be Marvel's newest superhero!

Catwoman #47
What is Catwoman without gang warfare and street politics? Selina has left behind her family business and is getting back to the trade that made her the leading lady she is today: (cat) burglary.

Rachel Rising #38
It's a team-up to take down Malus! Can Rachel and crew track down the demon that's making their lives a living hell, all puns intended?

Earth 2 Society #7
The Green Lantern takes on Doctor Impossible. But can a hero whose power is constrained by his creativity triumph over a villain whose abilities are limited to the unimaginable?

Deadpool #3 and Uncanny Avengers #3
Deadpool brings in a heap of obscure guests in his solo title while on his team title he welcomes his former co-star, Cable! 

Hercules #2
Herc continues his quest to pound bad beasties while looking as much like my Instagram feed as possible.

Queer-Adjacent Comic Spotlight:
Gwenpool Special #1 is out this week and it promises everything on your wishlist: She-Hulk, Hawkeyes, Ms. Marvel, and the character that you never knew you needed until today, the merc with a penchant for reinventing legacy characters, Gwenpool!

Tuesday, December 1, 2015

SuperQueeros! for December 2nd, 2015

Have you finished your Christmas shopping? Here's some suggestions: Harley is starting a team-up book, Iceman is starting a new adventure as an out X-Man, and Midnighter is starting to solve the mystery of the God Garden. SuperQueeros: all that's lesbian, gay, bisexual, transexual, transgender, and queer in comics today!

All-New X-Men #1
Did you catch Dennis Hopeless' interview on Rachel and Miles X-Plain the X-Men about this book and Bobby's new queer identity? While we won't be seeing much of Bobby exploring his sexuality in this first storyline, this is the number one stop for stories starring your new favorite superqueero, time displaced Iceman! Plus, Oya, Wolverine, and Kid Apocalypse!

Extraordinary X-Men #3
Meanwhile, in the main X-book, time synced Iceman is fighting for the lives all our old favorite mutant superqueeros! Whose idea was it to stash the academy in Limbo anyway? And will the demon-fighting banter allow Iceman to come out to Northstar, the man he spurned while in the closet?

Teen Titans #14
Who are the Titans without Red Robin? This week Bunker, Garth, Power Girl, and the rest of the Titans figure that out as they set out to find their missing leader.

Midnighter #7
Who was behind the God Garden attack that bestowed metahuman tech on humanity? This week Midnighter finds out who has been empowering the baddies he has been bagging. Want a hint? It's the same dude who stole another celestial secret for the people of Earth a few generations ago...
Harley's Little Black Book #1
Haley's epic team-up series starts here and now! We've seen the tasteless and awesome adventures of Power Girl and Harley in their miniseries and now it's time to see what kind of tasteless and awesome adventures Harley can get up to with the rest of the DC universe! First up is Wonder Woman!

Prez #6
The president and her trans robot bodyguard take on the viral threat to her new nation!

Wednesday, November 25, 2015

SuperQueeros! for November 25th, 2015

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!

Zeus is back with some new New Gods! Can our reincarnated heroes triumph over revamped deities? Oh, and someone dies! It's Superman, right? #jerk #alternatefuture

Tuesday, November 17, 2015

SuperQueeros! for November 18th, 2015

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!

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
The secrets of Helsinki come to light in this limited series! A break between seasons has never been so revealing.

Deadpool #2
Deadpool's solo series continues with a Kevin Wada variant cover!

Monday, November 9, 2015

SuperQueeros! for November 11, 2015

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!

Catwoman #46
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.

Tuesday, November 3, 2015

SuperQueeros! for November 4th, 2015

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...

Extraordinary X-Men #1
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...

Midnighter #6
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 #1
Deadpool gets a number one! But will anybody buy it???

Hercules #1
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.

SuperQueeros! for October 28, 2015

Jinkies, Wiccan and Hulkling are going on a MCU tour this week... But more importantly, Alysia Yeoh is getting MARRIED! SuperQueeros: all that's lesbian, gay, bisexual, transexual, transgender, and queer in comics today!

Batgirl #45
Alysia's getting married! But why did she invite Grayson? And who will be crashing this wedding?

New Avengers #2

Monday, October 19, 2015

SuperQueeros! for October 21st, 2015

After last week's new Avengers, it seems like the MCU is taking a back seat and letting DC and the other companies carry the queer banner. SuperQueeros: all that's lesbian, gay, bisexual, transexual, transgender, and queer in comics today!

Teen Titans #12
Now that the team knows the truth about Superboy's crime, it's time for them to dramatically walk away, leaving him physically abandoned and emotionally damaged! I think I read a fanfiction about this once...

Lumberjanes #19
April's bid to help the merfolk of the lake is not going as planned!

Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 10 #20
Buffy and Spike have a serial killer to topple, and Giles and Xander have a paranormal ex to investigate. That's right, Anya. Is she really the ghost of the best character ever, or is something more sinister going on?

Secret Six #7
Well Black Alice went and screwed up magic for everybody! But maybe she's also the key to fixing everything... Guest starring all the heavy hitter mages of the DCU!

Invincible #124
In the latest storyline, our hero gets sent back in time to before the series' massacre and he gets a second chance to interact with all those characters who died. Maybe we'll see Will Clockwell!

Tuesday, October 13, 2015

SuperQueeros! for October 14th, 2015

Tuesday, September 22, 2015

SuperQueeros! for September 23rd, 2015

Giles finally gets a reprieve from his brand new lease on boyhood, just in time to meet Buffy and Dawn's other father figure... their father, Hank!

SuperQueeros! for September 9th, 2015

A smaller set of comics this week, but with Selina Kyle, Alan Scott, and the cast of Wicked & Divine, you won't be hurting for good... SuperQueeros: all that's lesbian, gay, bisexual, transexual, transgender, and queer in comics today!

Catwoman #44

Tuesday, September 1, 2015

SuperQueeros! for September 2nd, 2015

Midnighter and Grayson whip out their stakes, the GCPD face a famous daughter, and Kimber and Stormer are implode! SuperQueeros: all that's lesbian, gay, bisexual, transexual, transgender, and queer in comics today!

Midnighter #4
If Midnighter is a blonder, gayer Batman and Grayson is an older, hotter Robin, then is this issue the perfect second date or a vampire slaying spree? Aw, who am I kidding? It's both!

Detective Comics #44

House of M #2
Now that Pietro is definitely defecting and betraying his father, will his nephews have to step up to the plate? 

Tuesday, August 25, 2015

SuperQueeros! for August 26th, 2015

Tigers and Popeyes and Grootslangs, oh my! There's a lot of threats out there in the comic-verse, and thankfully there are also a lot of... SuperQueeros: all that's lesbian, gay, bisexual, transexual, transgender, and queer in comics today!

Lumberjanes #17

Jen has rescued our crew, but can Rosie and the Bear Woman rescue reality from the Grootslang? Or will they need a little help from some Lumberjanes?

Batgirl #43
As Alysia and Jo's nuptials draw closer, so do some hungry, 'girl-eating tigers! Can Babs save the ceremony and the lives of Burnsides' citizenry?

Harley Quinn #19
Now that Harley has recovered from her spinach-induced coma, it's time for her to strap on some mallets and save her Gang o' Harleys from the evil Popeye who clown-napped them! Guest starring Poison Ivy!

Teen Titans #11
Though the team has just escaped their captors, the solicit tells us that freedom won't last for long. Can our young heroes bust out of prison and still retain enough credibility to clear Superboy's name?

X-Men '92 #3
With the X-men out of commission, Psylocke, Deadpool, and the rest of X-Force '92 must come to their rescue!

Deadpool's Secret Secret Wars #3
Speaking of Deadpool (whose crush on Spider-man I have now accepted as canonical queerness until persuaded otherwise), his saga of how the first Secret Wars actually ended is almost ending itself!

Justice League 3001 #3
This book is an odd one to include in the list. By introducing male personalities into female bodies and vice verse, JL 3001 set itself up as a great take on gender. But then they totally wasted it on terrible misogynistic humor. So I guess see if they improved this issue?

Tuesday, August 18, 2015

SuperQueeros! for August 19th, 2015

So many new comics this week! Including a short story focusing on my favorite non-mutant X-men, Kyle Jinadu! SuperQueeros: all that's lesbian, gay, bisexual, transexual, transgender, and queer in comics today!

Secret Wars Journal #4
Kyle is a man on the run in Sina Grace's "Another Last Stand". This time, though, he's finally running toward something, not away. See, he's located the world's most dangerous mutant and he's heck-bent on recruiting her to help him break into a mutant death camp and save his husband, Northstar!

Archie #2
So! A euphemistic "lipstick incident", a tight-lipped Jughead, and a certain Ms. Lodge moving into town... Will Kevin and the Riverdale crew be able to crack the mystery of the break-up of Betty and Archie before this reboot returns to the status quo?

X-tinction Agenda #3
As the X-men suit-up to take out Karma and the rest of the Genoshans, Triage is forced to resurrect the world's most tenacious super-villain, Cameron Hodge!

Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 10 #18
Archeus continues to beat up Willow and Buffy, make Angel and Spike fight, and sick his minions on Dawn, baby Giles, and Andrew. This book is so awesome.

Secret Six #5
Catman threatens to tear apart the new happy family when he finds out who Big Shot's wife is. Meanwhile, Porcelain attends a cook out!

Rat Queens #11
It's off to see the wizards (about saving the Necromancers)! The Rat Queens leave home to seek an audience with the Council of Ten at Mage University, which means that comic readers everywhere will finally learn how much gratuitous violence one campus can handle.

Runaways #3
And now the Runaways have run away! Well, most of them... Some stayed behind to tattle and alert the authorities. But given how many students the authorities murder every year, how will they treat a snitch? And given that one of the authorities is Valeria Richards, how far do the Runaways think they can get?

Harley Quinn & Power Girl #3
How are our dynamic duo doing on getting home? Well, they're about to crash into the Carnal Canyons of Lustox Moon so... they're about halfway there, I'd say.

Wonder Woman #43
Now that Donna has escaped custody, how will Diana track down her bloodthirsty mini-me?

Tuesday, August 11, 2015

SuperQueeros! for August 12th, 2015

This week is a week of wonderful Kevin Wada covers and the awesome bi characters to whom they are awarded! SuperQueeros: all that's lesbian, gay, bisexual, transexual, transgender, and queer in comics today!

Constantine: The Hellblazer #3
YASS! This brand new series for good ol' J.C. reestablishes his bisexuality! And did you see the guy he was checking out in issue #2? Adorbs! Tall, dark, with a winning smile... Actually he was a lot like Georgina Snow, the character from J.C.'s past that is taking over the book's covers this week and just generally being the awesome rival that Constantine loves to hate. I wonder if that's going to lead anywhere romantic? Alternately they may just team up to resurrect the ghost of John's best friend and Georgina's ex, Gaz. Or both!

Catwoman #43
I missed the confirmation of Selina's bisexuality earlier this year. But there's no way this cover could miss! Also, Selina's game is starting to feel the strain as all her pawns start to realize she's playing them. Will Selina be able to right the good ship Gotham, or is she about use one of her nine lives?

Earth 2: Society #3
So, you've got a new utopia and then the head of state gets assassinated. What to do when the only vacuum running is a power vacuum? Either go talk to the X-Men about their failed nationstate, or check-in with Lois Lane, the Red Tornado!

New Suicide Squad #11
The new recruits show their stuff while Harley does what a true icon does best: judge.

Orphan Black #5
We get a look into the psyche of Rachel, the Evil Charlie Brown of the clone club.

Walking Dead #145
Aaron wasn't on any of the pikes at the end of last issue, so maybe eh'll be in this one!

A-Force #3
included only for it's cover, the awesomeness of the cast, and the possibility that Sister Grimm is a little more sapphic in this reality?

SuperQueeros! for August 5th, 2015

Only a few 'Queeros this week, but what cool ones they are! SuperQueeros: all that's lesbian, gay, bisexual, transexual, transgender, and queer in comics today!

Midnighter #3
Steve Orlando's awesome new Midnighter series continues to kick bad guy butt while dating good guy butt! It looks like the baddie of the month is a post-Convergence Multiplex, but who will the date of the month be? And will they be modeled after one of the cast members of CW's The Flash? #ABoyCanDream

Detective Comics #43
Renee, Maggie, new-Batman, and the rest of the team tackle a new enemy!

Morning Glories #47
The likelihood of more Guillaume this issue seems low, especially if the issue follows the progress of Irene's "field trip" to kill Zoe. On the other hand, this series likes to tell a broad story in revealing snippets, so maybe we'll get some more Tower Ball and Boyfriend Resurrection. After all, if Zoe and Jade can cheat death, why can't gay love?

SuperQueeros! for July 29th, 2015

There's not a lot "coming out" this week, so I'm dedicating this post to a book that slipped past my radar for a few months: Jem and the Holograms! SuperQueeros: all that's lesbian, gay, bisexual, transexual, transgender, and queer in comics today!

Jem and the Holograms #5
The new IDW reboot of the classic '80s TV show is kicking butt, taking names, and queering your childhood crushes! Specifically Kimber, Jem's biological younger sister, and Stormer, member of rival band "The Misfits", have been reimagined as a star-crossed super-couple. Kimber and Stormer started off the series with an adorable meet-cute, but as things started heating up between both the couple and their bands, the budding romance has come under heavy fire! (Feel free to insert all the "storm" and "timber" puns you want here.) This latest issue promises even more drama for the couple as Kimber finds out who sabotaged the Holograms' first show. Based on the cover it looks like ancient grudge is going to break into new mutiny! Will Skimber survive?

Plus, Batgirl #42 and Batgirl Annual #3 come out this week. Between these two books, Babs basically takes a tour of the DCU. She's bound to see 'queeros at some point!

SuperQueeros! for July 22nd, 2015

Marvel publishes a book that doesn't tie into Secret Wars, Titans clash, and ex-villains chat. Plus, is Justice League 3001 a queer title in a positive way, or a heteronormative way? SuperQueeros: all that's lesbian, gay, bisexual, transexual, transgender, and queer in comics today!

Uncanny X-Men #35
It's Mystique vs. Magik as my favorite queer mutant slips back into the title she's going to headline after Secret Wars. Will this issue lay the groundwork for that status quo?

Teen Titans #10
It's a clash of the Titans in Chicago! Which team will emerge victorious?

Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Season 10 #17
Angel and Xander bond over their mopey attitudes and statuses as ex-villains while Buffy and Spike navigate their new relationship. No big news on the Willow and Andrew fronts though... Also, survey: who in the Scooby gang haven't ever been a villain?

Archie vs. Sharknado #1
I am including this book because Kevin was on one of the alternate covers. Hopefully he and his beau will meet a creatively grizzly end!

Justice League 3001 #2
Okay, I am definitely a newcomer to this parallel future, but the premise is that the JLA gets reincarnated into future peoples' bodies. The "queer" part is that sometimes the old hero's sex and the new body's sex don't match, and sometimes the resulting gender expression is not what you would expect. The whole point of this team is to flip the standard formula on its head, but whether it addresses the queer aspects of its queering of the JLA (well executed or otherwise) is still unknown. So, check it out at your own risk?

Prez #2
So far the queers in this have been incidental, but I can feel in my bones that this book will bring the LGBTQueers!

SuperQueeros! for July 15th, 2015

Lockheed is tomorrow's kaiju today, Rachel finally meets her death, a Lumberjane chooses sides, and we get another chance to see Ms. America Chavez in Battleworld. Plus: Catman! SuperQueeros: all that's lesbian, gay, bisexual, transexual, transgender, and queer in comics today!

Years of Future Past #3
As shown in the AMAZING cover, Lockheed distracts the Sentinels while Mystique and the X-Men flee. But when they find shelter in the ruins of Coney Island, they also uncover some dark secrets...

Rachel Rising #35
It's been thirty-five issues and now it's time: Rachel is about to meet Ma Malai, the angel of death. Will she survive the experience (again)?

Lumberjanes #16 
Jen must choose a side! Will it be Rosie? Or Abigail?

Secret Six #4
Remember in 2011 when you watched that first episode of Suburgatory and you were like, "How can cynical city-girl Tessa survive in the cut-throat wilds of suburbia?! How can Ryan Shay be allowed to wear a shirt ever? And how many episodes do I have to wait before Ryan experiments with a boy?" Well Secret Six is basically exactly like that, except that Tessa is five of the most fabulous supervillains in the DCU and Ryan is played by the canonically bisexual Catman! Plus, someone hid all his shirts!

Siege #1
Abigail Brand rules the Shield, the only thing keeping Doom's Battleworld from certain Doom Apocalypse destruction! And since the Shield is the last place we saw Ms. America Chavez, that means that we get to see the fate of A-Force's most awesome former member! (Hint: Her fate is conscription.)

Book of Death #1
Valiant starts its latest crossover this week, so there's a chance that we'll get to see Kris from the Harbinger Renegades!

Harley Quinn #18
The Gang of Harleys tangles with Captain Strong!

SuperQueeros! for July 8th, 2015

Secret Wars has been killin' it these days, am I right? Not to be outdone, this week the Archie universe is rebooting too. Can the all-new Riverdale surpass Convergence and reach the heights of Earth-1610? SuperQueeros: all that's lesbian, gay, bisexual, transexual, transgender, and queer in comics today!

Runaways #2

Canon queer-vampire-with-fireworks Jubilee is the number one reason to pick up this book, but not the only one. There's her ex-gf is Pixie, Cloak and Dagger's new powers, the awesome new members of their gang, and the fact that this book is fracking awesome! 

Archie #1
Archie gets an update, as does the rest of Riverdale. But what does Kevin Keller look like in a post-#SCOTUS universe?

Secret Wars 2099 #3
I forgot that Hercules' bisexuality is canon! Follow his future adventures as an Avenger in the year 2099.

Earth 2 Society #2
Getting all The Authority on us, Superman takes the political reigns to put Earth 2's society on the right track. But how will Green Lantern and the rest of the Society react?

New Suicide Squad #10
Death visits the team!

SuperQueeros! for July 1st, 2015

Happy Canada Day! Now, let's see what comics are celebrating with some... SuperQueeros: all that's lesbian, gay, bisexual, transexual, transgender, and queer in comics today!

Midnighter #2
Following up from last month's AWESOME issue #1, there's a new deadliest person in town. After the God Garden heist, civilians have been getting accidentally augmented. Looks like Midnighter will have to do some clean-up...

Chew #50
It's time to fight the vampire. 'Nuff said.

Years of Future Past #2
The X-Men have escaped the concentration camps and are fleeing from the Sentinels! But will Mystique help them out, or turn them in?

X-tinction Agenda #2
Karma, Rictor, and the rest of the Genosha crew raid the X-mansion in order to get a mutant healer. But the mansion's residents are not going to cooperate, which means... X-men fight!

I'm also only including A-Force #2 because I'm PRAYING that Ms. America Chavez isn't dead. Fingers crossed for a final page reveal! Also, Archie's Double Digest #262 might have some Kevin Keller cameo, if that's your jam.

SuperQueeros! for June 24th, 2015

DC twenty-somethings run this week in SuperQueeros and I pick sides on the Shay vs. Delphine debate! SuperQueeros: all that's lesbian, gay, bisexual, transexual, transgender, and queer in comics today!

Orphan Black #4
Fresh off of Saturday's Season 3 finale, this comic promises Allison spoilers and backstory for... Season 3? Well, as someone missing his Cosima-Delphine OTP, I'm going to hit up this comic for a fix. Plus I need something to distract me from my dream that the end of season 4 is the dramatic reveal of an undead French 'queero! 

Teen Titans #9
Bunker and the teens start a new storyline. Their mission? To clear Superboy's name!

Batgirl #41
As Babs' circle of allies expands, so does her competition: there's a new bat in town!

And some possible 'queeros...
Betty & Veronica Comics Double Digest #234 and World of Archie Jumbo Comics Double Digest #51
Between these two digests there's evidently three new stories. Maybe one of them will have Kevin!

Adventure Time #41
This issue is Peppermint Butler-centric. Maybe we will get some Princess Bubblegum too!

We Are Robin #1
All the teens of Gotham are now Robins! one of them has to be a 'queero, right?

Tuesday, June 16, 2015

SuperQueeros! for June 17th, 2015

Did you go to FlameCon? Did you follow it on social media and have a BLAST? Why not come down from that high with some brand new... SuperQueeros: all that's lesbian, gay, bisexual, transexual, transgender, and queer in comics today!

Lumberjanes #15
The unnatural blizzard is trapping Jen with the bear woman and getting us more explanation. So while she learns all the secrets of the Lumberjanes, let's look at a cat blizzard!

Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Season 10 #16
Angel crossover! How will Giles feel about his murderer coming back on the scene?

Harley Quinn and Power Girl #1 of 6
Harley and PG re-live their never-published team-up that was only referenced between panels in a prior issue of Harley Quinn. So expect gutters-level of gravitas and Harley-levels of fun!

Archie Vs. Predator #3 and Betty and Veronica #276
The thing about Kevin being in the main cast of the Archie gang is that I'm never sure how much of a role he's going to play in any one issue. But, just in case he gets more than a cameo, here's your heads up!

Wonder Woman #41
Donna may be in Amazon prison, but she will have her revenge!

Prez #1
A book about a teen girl president? There have to be queers in this book! (i mean, right?)

Tuesday, June 9, 2015

SuperQueeros! for June 10th, 2015

While you wait for the weekend, why not check out some of these... SuperQueeros: all that's lesbian, gay, bisexual, transexual, transgender, and queer in comics today!

Earth 2 Society #1
Convergence is done, which means a new Earth 2, a new Society for Justice, and new COSTUMES!

Rachel Rising #34
What's worse than a serial killing 14 year old? One that's gunning for you! Rachel's captors are sure in for a sharp surprise if Zoe has her way...

Harley Quinn #17 and New Suicide Squad #9
A gang of Harleys hits the pages of her solo title, while in her gang's book, Harley leads the charge against some rogue assassins! 

Adventure Time: Marceline Gone Adrift #6
The exes get back to Ooo and take back their queendoms!

Afterlife with Archie #8
The outbreak's origin continues this month. How did the adults of Riverdale get us into this mess?

Gotham Academy #7
The moment you've been waiting for: Maps meets Damien.

SuperQueeros! for June 3rd, 2015

The best part of reality-warping crossovers is the new starts for all our favorite 'queeros. This week is about resurrections, and frankly I'm freaking because so many are... SuperQueeros: all that's lesbian, gay, bisexual, transexual, transgender, and queer in comics today!

Midnighter #1
MIDNIGHTER IS BACK! And he's basically getting his Wolverine Origins treatment as he fights a bunch of escapees from the DCU version of Weapon X's Paradise in order to retreive the files of his pre-superqueero days. Come for the bloodshed, stay for finding out just who is Lucas Trent??? (And did he ever date Kevin Keller?)

Wolverines #20
The last issue! It's been five months, but Mystique is finally bringing back her beloved Destiny! And she might also be bringing back another familiar face.... Will it be Wolverine, the father of one of her new sons that she never seems to be raising? Or her secret husband, Professor X, the father of her other phantom-baby? 

Years of Future Past #1
And if one Destiny weren't enough, we get another one in the alternate universe book based on Days of Future Past!

Archie #666
It's the "Sign of the Beast" issue, and the forces of Satan have gathered together to END ARCHIE COMICS! But it isn't all bad news: Kevin Keller gets a variant cover and Archie is going to relaunch next month. Take that, forces of evil!

X-tinction Agenda #1
Remember when Rictor used to be in at least one book every month? Yeah, those were good days... (Fun Fact: As a kid I had a HUGE crush on Rictor!) Anyway, he's in this book! W00t!

All New X-Men #41
The kids, including newly out Iceman, take on the Utopians!

Morning Glories #46
It's time for some independent study. That phrase has never seemed more ominous!

Wicked and Divine #11
Ragnarok ends, which means... a new beginning!

Tuesday, May 26, 2015

SuperQueeros! for May 27th, 2015

Hopefully you had a great Memorial Day Weekend and are stoked for a final chapter, an interactive issue, and the return of my favorite avenging boyfriends! SuperQueeros: all that's lesbian, gay, bisexual, transexual, transgender, and queer in comics today!

Secret Wars Journal #1
Introducing... 1602 versions of Hulkling and Wiccan! Oh, and Hawkeye, too. I wonder how the Elizabethan period is treating our two young 'queeros in love?

Convergence #8
It's the end of the universes' reboot! What new status quo awaits our heroes in the new New DC Universe?

Adventure Time #40
The solicit had all these mentions about Magic Man and this being a special, interactive one-shot issue. All I know is that the cover has my two favorite exes from Ooo, Marceline the Vampire Queen and Princess Bubblegum!
