LGBTQ Previews October 2019 Part 2

Closing out October’s Previews with the “big 5” publishers here! A few things stand out that are worth mentioning – at least in my humble opinion. Ruby Falls is a mystery by Ann Nocenti and Flavia Biondi edited by Karen Berger at Dark Horse. Biondi wrote and drew Generations, a graphic novel exploring a young Italian man coming to terms with his sexuality, his relationship, and his place in the family. Lion Forge published an English translation a couple years ago. Black Canary helms a new Birds of Prey crew with Huntress, Harley Quinn (she’s everywhere!), and Renee Montoya. Hellblazer returns in a special that sets up a new series not directly tied to the DCU proper. There’s also a new Locke & Key mini series starting. Rounding things out are first issues of a new Excalibur team and the new X-Men sans X in the title series Marauders.

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!
