LGBTQA Previews June 2024 Part 2

Hello and thanks for your curiosity! We’re looking at comics, trades, and graphic novels coming June, you know, Pride month when DC and Marvel and occasionally other publishers tempt us with anthologies and the like! Marvel has its X-Men Wedding Special featuring Destiny and Mystique at the alter (in addition to other stories). DC has its regular annual Pride anthology, a giant sized comic collecting some of Rachel Pollack’s stories (and a new piece by Joe Corallo and Rye Hickman), and a regular sized edition of last year’s Pride covers. I say “regular sized” because last year DC published a poster sized (16 20) book with detachable art printed on heavy stock that makes it suitable for framing. Those are the highlights that stand out for me. Please have a look! But first, the “fine print”!

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 in part one. Normally BL & GL mangae are included with part one but this month they’re on their own list. Comics and graphic novels appear on the list if creators identify as LGBTQA+ or are allies or if the work include queer characters or themes.

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!

Your support of local comic shop or indy bookstore is more important now than before so please consider ordering from them! Want to find a comic shop? Comic Shop Locator will do that for you! Support your local indy bookstore your graphic novel purchase by using Bookshop!
