…and we are going to have a chat today about a really interesting new comic book we had the chance to preview: “The Pride”, by Joseph Glass. It’s a comic book about a team of queer superheroes.So I suppose we should start with a rundown of the roster:

Recently, the Comic Book Queers gang was contacted by the Chicago Public Library. In honor of Pride month, we were asked to create a list of “essential” comic books that members of the GLBTQI community should (must?) read. In a presentation on June 8th, the CBQties will talk a little bit about our individual experiences with comics and queerdom, and we will make our Comic Book Queer Readers List available via CPL and our own website. In the meantime, the Scavenger would like to talk about what DIDN’T make the list.
HIDE THE REMOTE!
THERE ARE TRANNIES ON CARTOON NETWORK!
Glen Weldon (author, blogger, podcaster) slums it with stevieD to talk about his book Superman: The Unauthorized Biography. The two queens dish about everything from super-hypnosis to Lois’ favorite pill-box hat!
And here, you will find the Tumblr Glen mentioned as a companion to the book.
I’m always on the lookout for new #1s (insert watersports fetish joke here). I like to find books that will be my new obsession. I would estimate that 40% of the new series’ I pick up result in me reading the first 6 issues and of those only 10% make it to my pull list. In May I picked up several new #1s. The Movement (review here) and The Green Team (review here) didn’t hit the mark for me although I am giving each 3 issues to reel me in. The Black Bat was decent and I am curious to see where it goes but it needs to be amazing in issue #2. And I quit The Bounce before the end of the first issue (it was so lame). April only yielded one good one (Jupiter’s Legacy) and March had Guardians of the Galaxy (which I LOVE!) I also really liked Avengers: The Enemy Within #1 but that is a weird cross-over event and I can’t find what additional books it’s continuing in. With that track record I was dubious about picking up two new #1 titles on Wednesday but I think I may have stumbled on something good.
It’s two CBQties – with a twist! Which Avengers book has SaroSpice shaken AND stirred? Which title does the Scavenger think is on the rocks? It’s boozin’ and bitchin’ COMIC BOOK QUEERS STYLE, about all these current Avengers titles: Avengers; New Avengers; Uncanny Avengers; Secret Avengers; Avengers Assemble; Dark Avengers; Avengers Arena; and Gay Sex Avengers. We made one of those up.
SARO: Hey Jason! Hope this finds you well. That thing on your lip was starting to look like an open faced Reuben sandwich.Did you get a chance to read the AWESOME “Green Team, Teen Trillionaires” this week?It’s DC’s newest “young justice” title, this time focusing on a group of 1% rich kids entering the HERO game.
So much fantastic cosplay at C2E2 2013. I think the con has some of the most diverse cosplayers around and some of the hottest!
I’ve seen lots of photo parades, I think our parade features a few players that I haven’t seen anywhere else! Enjoy the cosplay and let us know who your favorites were.
Keep your eyes open cause you may see a few of the CBQties in the mix and a few of our favorite creators as well.
See all the shots! After the jump! Read the rest of this entry →
