LGBTQ Previews January 2021 Part 2

More Commanders In Crisis! More conspiracy in the psychological thriller Department of Truth! Pre-order collections of Barbalien Red Planet and Gaiman and Russell’s Norse Mythology but you’ll have to wait till next March. Trade waiting for Empyre? Welp, for $125 you can have the nearly 1,100 page hardcover with every single Empyre related comic! DC is doing its two month Future State event thing (that makes me feel ambivalent) but a nice point about it is seeing some artists drawing stories who don’t normally do interior art for DC, like Jen Bartel on the Immortal Wonder Woman.

Oh, right! This month’s cover image is from the GI Joe World on Fire trade!

Before the New Teen Titans, there were the original Teen Titans.

And across that decade, they fought for their seats at the Titans’ table while joining the battle against injustice. The long-awaited miniseries written by Academy Award-winning screenwriter John Ridley and beautifully illustrated by Giussepi Camuncoli and Andrea Cucchi continues to look at the mythology of the DC Universe as seen through the prism of DC Super Heroes who come from traditionally disenfranchised groups. 1120DC076
