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!

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.

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?

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!

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!
