SuperQueeros! for August 31st, 2016

Ah, fifth Wednesday, the bank holiday of comic books. While the shelves will be flooded with annuals this week, which ones of them will feature any... SuperQueeros: all that's lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer in comics today!

Harley Quinn and Her Gang of Harleys #5

Afterlife with Archie #10
You know who I think would survive a zombie apocalypse? Josie and the Pussycats. But what does superqueero Roberto Aguirre Sacasa think would happen? Well wonder no longer: these week we find out the dark secrets of Riverdale's favorite cat-themed rock band and see how they fare when the world turns rabid!

Deadpool Corner:

Patsy Walker, a.k.a. Hellcat! #9
Fresh from Con, Kate Leth unleashes the ninth issue of her hit comic! Patsy's exes are back in the picture now that Hedy has dug them up from whatever hell dimension they're ruling now. But will the arrival of her evil ex-beaus spell the end for Patsy and friends (including Jubilee!), or will she finally be able to pay her bills?

Detective Comics #939
James Tynion IV has been busy penning the last issue of Rise of the Batmen, and we've got a lot of shoes that are about to drop. Kate is Bruce's cousin, Red Robin is leaving for college... but with all of these revelations, what does the final page hold that will have us clutching out pearls?

Extraordinary X-Men #13
The X-Men survived the Apocalypse Wars, but they've managed to unleash Apocalypse back into the present day, lose track of Horseman Colossus, and misplace the demon girl whose mutant powers tie her intimately to the dimension in which the X-Men reside. Will a split-up team have the ability to set things right, or will this X-team, when divided, simply fall?

As chew wraps us it's run, we finally get the answers we've been waiting on for years.

Deadpool #16 and Deadpool V Gambit #3

I’m grouping these together because the teaser for Deadpool 16 was boring. (“Find out how Deadpool became popular!” Dude, that’s what Journey Into Misery is for.) However, Deadpool v Gambit looks great! It’s a meat slinging, cook out battle!

Penny Dreadful #3
The origin story of Sembene and Malcolm Murray!
