LGBTQ Previews March 2021 Part 2

March solicits sees the final issue of Tate Brombal and Gabriel Walta’s excellent Barbalien mini series that fills in some of the backstory to the Martian Manhunter analog seen in Jeff Lemire’s Black Hammer comics. Carla Speed McNeil’s Finder Chase The Lady will appear in comic shops after being delayed last year because of the pandemic. Tom Taylor and Bruno Redondo take over Nightwing so we can all expect great writing, thirst trap worthy drawings of Nightwing’s ass, and probably the appearance of a new or established queer character as part of the cast. Wonder Woman gets a “Sensational” second series. And Wiccan and Hulkling get a one shot under the King In Black event and hopefully it isn’t tied into that story too much.

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!
