SuperQueeros! for April 1st, 2015

It's the final chapter of a lot of DC titles as we near Convergence. Will your favorite 'queeros survive? The first step will be to get through this month! SuperQueeros: All that's lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender in comics today!

Batwoman Annual #40
Kate gets one more issue before she rides off into the sunset, and it's an annual! See how the creative team bids adieu to one of the most revolutionary queer characters of the millennium.

Batman Eternal #52
Meanwhile, Kate's ex Maggie bows out too. That's right, it's the final issue of Batman Eternal!

Earth 2 World's End #26 (and Convergence #0)
Is Green Lantern dead?! It looks like Allan opens the issue by getting creamed by Darkseid and then performing the ultimate Lunar Dance to resurrect all the other Earth 2 heroes. But is this truly the end of the only gay Green Lantern? And, as this series closes out, does he have a role in the upcoming Convergence event?

Teen Titans Annual #1
The teens clean up Superboy's mess. Woohoo? At least no one is dying before Convergence.

Wolverines #13
Now that Deadpool has decided to become 'Poolverine and join this book, does Mystique have any chance of getting Destiny back?

Harley Quinn #16
There's a new gang in town: the Gang of Harleys!

Gotham Academy Endgame #1
The girls camp out and tell each other scary stories about the Joker!

Wonder Woman #40
The new team's first tale comes to a dramatic conclusion: Diana vs Donna!

SuperQueeros! for March 25th, 2015

For everyone who was wondering, I did some Gotham Academy research and I have a handle on the #queerness of its cast. Plus, I go a little crazy with the 21st century's first rhetorical device, the #hashtag. #SuperQueeros: all that's lesbian, gay, bisexual, transexual, transgender, and queer in comics today!

Earth 2 World's End #25
Green Lantern takes his last shot at saving Earth 2. Can Alan and the Kryptonians emerge victorious? #UseThePowerOfLove

Wolverines #12
Fantomelle's mission comes to an end. Meanwhile, Fang and Lady Deathstrike make their alliances known in Sharp and Ogun's battle for control of their shared body! #FantomelleRules #NewArmForDaken2015

Amazing X-Men #18
Now that The Living Monolith is also The Unstoppable Juggernaut, it's time for the team-up 50 years in the making: Colussus and Cain Marko! (At least, that's what the solicits seem to be implying. Also, did you see how Cain Marko punched Colussus in the same issue that Crossbones breaks his hand on Colossus' jaw? So Cain must have some sort of residual strength, right?) #MoreNorthstarPlease

Uncanny X-Men #32
This title is about to go through a metamorphosis as Cyc sends all the students to the Jean Grey school and teams up with his brother, Mutant Two-Face, to be criminals on the run. So one last chance to see Morph before he fades into the background? #ScottSummersIsAD!ck

Morning Glories #44
How will this season's intricate plans unfold this week? Hopefully we'll get some more Guillaume and Tower Ball! #BasketballShorts

Wicked + Divine #9
Bring on the god-maker! Ananke drops by. #NoBig

Gotham Academy #6
So I think the 'queero in this comic is maybe Maps? She definitely hasn't picked a sexuality as a first year, so it's hard to say, but she's awesome and she took her cute roommate to the school dance so.... Oh, and Olive fights Batman for guardianship of Killer Croc. #AverageDay

SuperQueeros! for March 18, 2015

I can't decide if the theme this week is "the return of faces from your past" or "sudden changes in location", so I'm picking both! SuperQueeros: all that's lesbian, gay, bisexual, transexual, transgender, and queer in comics today!

Lumberjanes #12
After a total cute-fest in an alternate reality (Didn't Willow do something similar when she was hooking up with that Snake Goddess? Do all lesbian relationships develop in other dimnesions?), Mol and Mal are trying to find a way home. Will they be able to make it back and be the deus ex machina that their fellow 'janes need?

Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 10 #13
It's murder-solvin' time! Plus, Andrew gets some relationship advice! And what's this on the cover? The aforementioned Snake Goddess ex-gf of our very ow Willow Rosenberg?

Batwoman #40
Now that Batwoman's team of Unknowns is assembled, it's time for them to bring the fight to Morgan LeFaye! But, as we learned five months ago, this battle ends up taking our (anti-)heroes to space. I wonder when that happens...

Teen Titans #8
Superboy returns! However, when the solicit says that this "rocks" everyone's world, I am assuming that they do not mean it in the same way that my Superboy/Bunker OTP brain interprets it.

Batgirl #40 and Batgirl Endgame #1
Babs' past comes back to haunt her in her solo series, while in her one shot we get the promise of an epic Burnside Bridge battle!

Wolverines #11
Laura's crush is revealed, and the fight for Shogun's body continues!

Earth 2 World's End #24
Power Girl takes on Darkseid! If she falls... I'm sure we'll get her back in Convergence. So, you know, it's the standard stakes with this battle.

Batman Eternal is wrapping up their many story threads, starting in this week's issue, #50. There have been some queer characters in this title, so I'm assuming that there will be some cameos. Storm #9 comes out this week, and it features one of the best X-team-ups: Storm and Gambit, being all theives and stuff! So, no queeros, but still a good comic.

SuperQueeros! for March 11th, 2015

A teenage girl, an evil planet, a golden model Earth... death is coming from the oddest places this week in the lives of our... SuperQueeros: all that's lesbian, gay, bisexual, transexual, transgender, and queer in comics today!

Rachel Rising #32
A copycat killer has wandered into the sights of Rachel and her team. Meanwhile, intrepid serial killer Zoe sets her sights on a sexual predator. 

Earth 2: World's End #23
The world is DOOMED! Or, at least that's my prediction with all these Convergence solicits floating around... That and the fact that the Earth is getting totally eaten by Apokolips. That's also pretty damning.

New Suicide Squad #8
With Harley about to be crushed by the Daily Planet, will the team be able to keep its roster from shrinking even further? Well, the solicit says that there is about to be a superhuman revolt, so it seems like a good time and a great place to find some new recruits!

Wolverines #10
Man, it sure stank that Daken had a new arm and eye for, like, one beer before Fang took it all away again! And Mystique's plan has sure been put on hold while Fang plays with the Wolvies. Speaking of, Fang and newly-good Sabretooth go off to have some character developing adventures this issue. Meanwhile, Ogun and Sharp square off for control of their shared body! Plus, Fantomelle and Culpepper's continue their adventures in thieving.

SuperQueeros! for March 4th, 2015

Rat Queens is back! Plus the queer-inclusive weekly titles focus on their 'queeros! SuperQueeros: all that's lesbian, gay, bisexual, transexual, transgender, and queer in comics today!

Rat Queens #9
The Queens are back and fighting more Abyssal tentacles than ever!

Wolverines #9
Mystique's plans are put on hold as for a one-issue look at the past, present, and future of everyone's favorite queer sociopath, Daken!

Earth 2 #32 / Earth 2 World's End #22
Apokolips is eating Earth! Can our heroes delay the destruction of their planet long enough for us to get an awkward love triangle between Allan Scott, his boyfriend Sam, and Obsidian?

X-Men #25
C. Willow Wilson's seminal run on adjective-less continues! And Psylocke walks away from an explosion like it's no big deal!

Harley Quinn #15
Harley finally snaps! (Again?)
