LGBT Previews March 2017 Part 2

The big news this month is America Chavez’s series debuts in March so you can order it now or before the final ordering cut off.  Simply titled “America”, it’s safe to say this is one series that a lot of fans were asking, hoping, and even begging for! Neil Gaiman’s American Gods is adapted to comics with art by P Craig Russell. Teen Titans gets a gay character back in its ranks with the newish Aqualad. I can’t remember if he’s being called Kaldur’ahm or Jackson like his first version. Rat Queens starts over with a soft reboot – for anyone still interested after a few incidents with some of its creators. Also Gillen and McKelvie’s Phonogram works are collected in a deluxe hard cover.

You can look over part one for comics, trades, and graphic novels from publishers such as Boom, Archie, DE, small press, and indies!
