SuperQueeros! for June 1, 2016

To ring in the start of summer and the debut of the new Rebirth Universe, we get... almost no queers. Luckily, one title is jam-packed with SuperQueeros: all that's lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer in comics today!

DC Comics Bombshells #14
Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy take on the Joker's Daughter in Berlin while Zatanna and Constantine struggle to survive without magic! All that and Mera too!

Deadpool #13
I do flip flop on whether Deadpool should be tracked in this column, but this week there aren't many other comic book queers to need the spotlight. Therefore, DP can have his moment to shine.

Civil War II #1
The only other comic to have some queers is the Marvel blockbuster. It only makes the list because I can spot some queer superheroes in its GIANT splash page. Don't expect Hulkling to get any lines, but if you're a strict completist then go ahead and pick this one up.

Steven Universe and the Crystal Gems #2

Steven starts to have nightmares about the glass ghost Pearl made up. But it's all a dream, Amythest hasn't found any clues, and people in Beach City definitely aren't turning into glass. Right? RIGHT? #keepbeachcityweird
