SuperQueeros! for March 2nd, 2016

It's March Madness! Which is to say, this week everyone is crazy. Midnighter stupidly takes on the criminally insane Suicide Squad, Batgirl is literally losing her mind, and the X-Men take the fight to the crazily overpowered Dark Riders. Are these vigilantes out of their minds? SuperQueeros: all that's lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer in comics today!
Midnighter #10
To get back some God Garden tech, Midnighter had to steal from Taskforce X. Now Harley, Deadshot, Parasite, and the rest of the gang are here to dole out the consequences!

Batgirl #49
Now that we know Babs' memory is being siphoned off by her childhood friend and brand new nemesis, it's time for the Batgirl family to journey into her mind, defeat this new rogue, and save Barbara's sanity!

Uncanny X-Men #4
Mystique and Fantomex join up to complete their mission for the Hellfire Club. But what are they hoping to learn from infultrating the Someday Corporation? What does the Corporation have to do with the Dark Riders? Will the answer be that they're using the Dark Riders to kill mutant healers so that they can drum up business for their cryogenics business in a straightforward allegory for corporate greed? Or is there more to this story than a simple morality tale decorated with plastic smiles by Greg Land?

Deadpool Corner: In Deadpool #8, Wade goes after Sabretooth for the murder of his parents, which will probably be confusing for the (unsually) innocent 'tooth, and in Uncanny Avengers #6 everyone is mad at Synapse.

Jem and the Holograms #12
Synergy is turning evil and now The Misfits have a new lead singer?! Is this the Jem-verse or Wonderland?

Teen Titans #17
The Titans have their backs against a wall. It's a good thing that they have a psychic wall-builder on their side. Or should I have said "did have"?

All New X-Men #5
Did you see Iceman try to flirt last issue? It was so adorably awkward! Pick up this issue to see if he tries anything smoother than icing a margarita the second time around.

Chew #55

Patsy Walker, a.k.a. Hellcat #3
Patsy's time in hell will do her well as she takes on... bedbugs!

Archie #6
Now that Jughead came out as asexual in last week's Jughead #4, there's nary a comic in the New Archie-verse that isn't queer inclusive! Speaking of Jughead, you can catch him in issue #6 of Archie's comic as he continues to have a big fight with his best friend. :_(

Bitch Planet #7
And speaking of queer titles that flew under my radar, Kelly Sue DeConnick's excellently titled "Bitch Planet" sees the arrival of a new character on the women's prison planet.

Deadpool and Cable Split Second #3
Now that you've seen how the Deadpool cinematic saga begins, find out how this miniseries ends. If it's with Nathan and Wade locking lips, I will feel so vindicated for including them in this round up.

SuperQueeros! for February 10, 2016

Happy Valentine's Day, dear readers! To celebrate the season of love, commercialism, and discount candy, publishers are giving us a bouquet of a dozen queer-inclusive comics. But which ones will you choo-choo-choose? SuperQueeros: all that's lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer in comics today!

Jem & the Holograms: Valentine's Day Special #1Synergy's song has changed and it's dialing down the demeanors of the Misfits and the Holograms from angry to amiable. But if these two bands don't hate each other, how will they feel about each other?

Constantine The Hellblazer #9
You know that dream where you walk into an auction, all ready to bid on the souls of the damned, but you're not wearing any glamour magic? Embarrassing! John knows that feeling all too well. He journeyed the top floor of Hell on earth to save his hunky trick, but the demons there saw right through his flimsy disguise! How is our favorite anti-hero going to double-cross his way out of this one?

Insexts #3
Lady and Mariah have a family to protect from the monsters around them. What new forms will they take to protect their child?

Earth 2 Society #9
Hawkgirl joins the Amazons, Batman fights the Mist, and Green Lantern continues his solitary life of being a giant Gaea.

All New X-Men #4
The X-Men start their adventure and, according to the author's interviews, Iceman explores being out!

Ultimates #4
Wherever reality ends, there will be monsters. And there Ms. America Chavez will be, kicking monster butt.

Catwoman Corner: In Catwoman #49, Selina takes on Killer Croc and Batgirl, while in Injustice Gods Among Us Year 5 #3 Killer Frost and Bane capture Selina and she waits for Batman to save her. #WhySoloTitlesMatter

Harley's Habitat: In Harley's Little Black Book #2, Harley gets a power ring! The Queen of Quinn manages to snag a combo black-and-red power ring this issue. Unfortunately, just as she's starting to get the hang of her new accessory, the least fun Lantern of all decides to drop by and spoil everything. So Harley has to mope back to her team book, New Suicide Squad #7, and work on breaking out of Task Force X. 

Legend of Wonder Woman #2
Diana's training on Themyscira continues as revolt against her mother foments! 

Adventure Time #49 
In case Marceline or Bubblegum make a cameo, why not check out the latest issue of AT? Finn and Jake get to erase their new friend from reality!

SuperQueeros! for February 3, 2016

It's crossover city this month! Midnighter crosses paths with another set of DCU spies, Batgirl leans on an old teammate for help, and the X-Men fight to save one of their ex-members.  SuperQueeros: all that's lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer in comics today!   

Midnighter #9
Long ago Batman founded The Outsiders. As a Batman analogue, what sort of super-group would Midnighter found? As a questing vigilante hunting for more God Garden gadgets, what super-group will Midnighter need to steal from this month? IMO, these questions have the same answer: The Suicide Squad!

Batgirl #48
With Batgirl losing more and more of her memories, it's time for her to turn to Black Canary for help!

Uncanny X-Men #3
Next on the deadpool list is Triage! Can Magneto and Psylocke save him, or are they too practiced at killing to be of any use to a healer with a death sentence? Also, what's Mystique been up to?

Deadpool Corner: Deadpool: Mercs for Money #1 sees Deadpool and his band of merry mercenaries take on the Heroes for hire mantle, while Uncanny Avengers #5 ushers in the first post-Secret Wars appearance of Gambit.
