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!
