LGBTQ Previews January 2020 Part 2

Wonder Woman fans have a reason to be happy as the series celebrates its upcoming 750th issue with a 96 page Prestige format special with creators like Gail Simone, Greg Rucka, and Colleen Doran! DC did the renumbering trick once before with the landmark 600th issue. Here’s hoping the numbering sticks this time. With James Tynion IV coming on as new Batman writer perhaps he’ll give readers more LGBTQ characters, or bring back a couple from his Detective run.

Part one of the Previews list covering comics, trades, and graphic novels from publishers such as Boom, Archie, DE, small press, and indies is here! Look for yaoi and yuri manga there!

People’s names listed in bold are either LGBT+ or supportive. Credit where credit is due – Andy Mangels because this was his idea and wrote many such lists and to Mike McDermott and Steven Leitman for their suggestions and input about several series that have been added to the list! Notice something missing that should be on the list? Please send a message!
