LGBTQA Previews June 2022 Part 2

June’s comics are a gotdamn gold mine of goodies with so, so many comics and trades to tempt and break your budget! There’s lots of new stuff of course, but DC and Image are reoffering 26 LGBTQA graphic novels and trades between them! In the past publishers have received some legitimate criticism that their queer themed comics are reserved for Pride and the rest of the year sees little to nothing. While it’s still mostly true, several comics are mini series to enjoy throughout the rest of the year too!

This month’s graphic features the cover art to Marvel and DC’s Pride anthologies and also Travis Moore’s art for issue #1 of The Sins of the Black Flamingo mini series by Andrew Wheeler and Moore, published by Image.

This monthly column features comics, graphic novels, and books from Dark, Horse, DC, Image, IDW, and Marvel. You’ll find items from publishers such as BOOM, Archie, Black Mask, Vault, other small and indy presses and BL/ yaoi and yuri in part one.

The strange code with letters and numbers after each item are Diamond order codes for easy ordering with your comic shop! Items from are in this list. Names of people marked in bold are queer or ally creators!

Credit where credit is due – Andy Mangels because this was his idea and wrote many such lists and to Mike McDermott for his 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!

Betrayal continues the award-winning graphic novel retelling of the Trojan War. The famous names of legend breathe anew as ancient Troy springs to life once more. The army of High King Agamemnon battles its way across the sea toward Troy. On the island of Tenedos the young warrior Achilles leads the army to the attack. But before the slaughter ends, Achilles unexpectedly seals his fate. During the feast of victory, a snake bites Philoktetes on the foot. His cries of pain are so loud and long that the army can’t stand having him around. Leave it to Odysseus to find a solution to the problem, a solution that satisfies the army but doesn’t sit quite so well with Philoktetes. The Trojans are busy, preparing to repel an onslaught. Prince Hektor hopes that war can be stopped before it starts. And when Agamemnon sends an embassy from the army to Priam, peace seems within grasp. But it’s by no means sure. At long last Helen faces the husband she left behind. Will flying sparks rekindle a flame between them or ignite a conflagration that consumes all? In Betrayal, graphic novelist Eric Shanower continues his unique and detailed vision of one of the greatest stories in the world.
