SuperQueeros! for February 25th, 2015

There are quite a few new arrivals this week! With spring around the corner it's time for some All-New, All-Different... SuperQueeros: all that's lesbian, gay, bisexual, transexual, transgender, and queer in comics today!

Amazing X-Men #17
Cain Marko is back and he's P.O.'d at the X-men! This time it's because... they killed his brother? I can only imagine he's mad that they did it before he could. Anyway, think he'll be the one to gain Cyttorak's power?

Wolverines #8
SO, Mystique is in charge, Lady Deathstrike figured out that Shogun's second personality is that of her dead beau, X-23 is playing lil' sis to one-armed Daken, and the last page of the last issue was the biggest ever reveal in all of OTP history! Anyway, this issue their plane gets attacked and all plans are put on hold.

Earth 2: World's End #21
Huntress and her grandpa, Batman, go to talk to Green arrow. Meanwhile, the unfridging of Green Arrow's boyfriend Sam was just un-undone when Alan absorbed his fiancé into himself so that he could become the Earth-2 version of the White Lantern and destroy Apokolips. Woo hoo?

Gotham Academy #5
A little late to the game, but the Valentine's spirit has entered the academy and there will be smooches!

Orphan Black #1
In case you don't have access to the show - or you want to see some of the secrets of the OB universe in a more chronological order - Orphan Black is now being adapted into comic book form!

Chew #46
Everything is new! Partner, job, story... everything!

Wicked + Divine #8
The 11th god has arrived, so it's time to party! (When isn't it time to party?)

Spider-Gwen #1

SuperQueeros! for February 18th, 2015

As usual, Harley Quinn was a trendsetter: this week all the other 'queeros follow in her footsteps and bring their Valentines-game to the fore. SuperQueeros: all that's lesbian, gay, bisexual, transexual, transgender, and queer in comics today!

Lumberjanes #11

There are a lot of questions in the solicit. One about the Bear Woman. One about the rest of the girls. Whatevs. Aren't Mal and Moll the most adorable on this cover? Can you even? I can't even! #feels #firstlove

Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Season 10 #12
Much as Sonny's confrontation of his unfaithful husband was put on hold by a brief bout of amnesia, all the relationship development from last month's issue has been put on a very dramatic hold this month. Except, instead of revenge-fueled drug czars, the Scoobies have to take down a mess of fleshy homunculi! #UnifiedTheoryofSerializedNarratives

Batgirl #39
Babs has to take on the hipsters she once called friends as the borough of Burnside turns on their newest caped crusader!

Batwoman #39
The mystery of Red Alice revealed! Find out some secrets of Kate's dearest foe and darkest ally!

Earth 2: World's End #20
Green Lantern is still locked in mortal combat (I can't wait to see his animality. #TWSS), so he's probably going to miss the memo, but this week Apokolips' plans for Earth 2 are brought to fiery, fiery light!

Teen Titans #7
Looks like this super-team never read Goosebumps #2! The teens take on the thing that goes bump in the night at S.T.A.R. Labs!

Wolverines #7
Mystiques' plan comes to fruition, and some V-Day "romance" brews between the Wolvies and their captors. #FiftyShadesofStockholmSyndrome

Uncanny X-men #31
Axis has lead to changes for the X-Men. Will Cyclops and the Uncanny team come in from the rain now that Havok has been inverted? Or is kidnapping a fashion icon like the Wasp still not enough to shift the focus of anti-mutant politics away from the Phoenix 5? #ThreeYearNewsCycle

SuperQueeros! for February 11th, 2014

It's Valentine's, and to ring in the holiday, I'm welcoming back an old 'queero! SuperQueeros: all that's lesbian, gay, bisexual, transexual, transgender, and queer in comics today!

Wolverines #6
The assault on Sinister's fortress leads to the inevitable consequence of clandestine capers: betrayal! But which Wolvie will be defecting to the side of the (marginally more) Sinister? Plus, the Amazing X-men show up!

Earth 2 World's End #19
Last we left Green Lantern, his boyfriend was in mortal peril and the Spirit of Apokolips was about to kill the Green, the source of all his power!

Morning Glories #43
How do you beat the unbeatable? In a fictional universe whose physical mechanics are dictated by philosophy and whose population are routinely stuck in circular time loops, is anyone truly unbeatable? Conversely, but equally valid, is anyone truly beatable? Is this story unbeatable, or has it already been beaten by its dependence on a multi-volume storyline that is obscured by a non-linear narrative? Are we as comic readers, and therefore comic "real"-izers, beatable? Is a one word solicit unbeatable, or is there a way to extract a paragraph's worth of nonsense from a single word and some stern-faced cover art? In this issue of Morning Glories, absolutely none of these questions will be answered. But we may get hot gay French guys playing Towerball and/or sacrificing a girl.

X-Force #15
This is it! The evil-Fantomex storyline finally ends ultimately concludes!

All New X-Men #36
The All-New X-Men take on the Ultimate X-Men and... is that Ultimate Colossus on the cover?!?!? #interrobangable

Harley Corner:
New Suicide Squad #7 and Harley Quinn Valentine's Special #1
After reading a few articles about it recently, I have renewed my subscription to Harely/Ivy: Canon OTP. That means I'll be covering the couple again, even if they don't ever get married on the steps of Arkham! And, just in time to welcome them back, Harley has a Valentine's Special! Watch as our favorite psychologist-turned-icon celebrates the season by tying up Batman and covering the page in hearts! It's basically what you're doodling at work anyway.

SuperQueeros! for February 4th, 2015

Top billing this week goes to Earth 2 for bringing Green Lantern's boyfriend back from the dead. Plus find out this week's other... SuperQueeros: all that's lesbian, gay, bisexual, transexual, transgender, and queer in comics today! 

Earth 2 #31 and Earth 2 World's End #18

Now that Green Lantern has been reunited with his formerly dead, newly empowered boyfriend, it's time for him to DIE (again)! Can Sam save his avatar of the Green?

Saga #25
This issue says that "almost the whole cast is back!" I'm not sure what that means, but maybe it will mean superqueeros!

Wolverines #5
With the Amazing X-Men guest starring in this issue, this is basically the most queer comic on the stands!
