Thank you to everyone who came to this year’s queer superheroes panel at Montreal Comic Con. This year’s panel was something a bit new for me because I only talked about things that made me happy and that I could rec, which limited the more historical part of the panel, and cut down the number of DC and Marvel titles drastically. I enjoyed this format greatly and I had a very good time :)
I’ll order the titles I talked about in categories and tried to link to places to buy those, which will give you the books’ ISBNs if you want to buy them elsewhere.
Young Avengers: Heinberg’s run, Children’s Crusade, and Gillen’s run (the omnibus isn’t out yet, but you can currently find them in 3 different volumes).
Runaways: The Complete Collection Volume 1. Volume 2, Volume 3 (also not all out yet, non-omnibus versions are available).
Daken: (In order, complete, italics are crossovers with other series) Dark Wolverine vol 1, Dark Wolverine vol 2, Siege: X-Men, Wolverine Origins: Reckoning, Punisher: Franken-Castle, Daken: Dark Wolverine 1, Daken/X-23: Collision (and then there are volumes 2, 3 and 4, but watch me not adding them to the list). Fair warning: some of these are very hard to find and sold out in the Amazon link I’m giving. The link will mostly be for reference.
X-Treme X-Men: Volume 1, Volume 2, Termination
Batwoman: Elegy, Volume 1, Volume 2, Volume 3, Volume 4 (the volume 5 is out soon, I am not adding it to this list).
Tiny Titans: Tiny Titans has 8 volumes, but you don’t need to read them in any kind of order. Just have fun. Also it’s probably pushing to put this title in this list but more people should read Tiny Titans.
Other printed comics
The Authority: Authority 1, Authority 2 are the easiest to find and also the start of the series. Then you quickly get into books that are sold out. The complete list of collected books is on Wikipedia.
Hellblazer: Hellblazer has more than 300 issues. The Wikipedia page on all the books published is pretty complete.
Enigma: OMG! OMG PEOPLE THERE IS A NEW EDITION OF ENIGMA COMING OUT IN DECEMBER! I LIED YOU CAN BUY IT AGAIN, NOW! I’LL BUY IT TO EVERYONE I KNOW, IT WILL BE GREAT. So exciting!
Saga: Volume 1, Volume 2, Volume 3, Volume 4
The Posterchildren, by Kitty Burroughs
Hero, by Perry Moore
Webcomics (these are free!)
I also have a list of recs given by people in the attendance that I will look up soon: Failure to Fire, Fearless Defenders, Questionable Content (that I have listed recently in my webcomic list!), Girls with Slingshots.
Thank you again to everyone who came, and if you participated in the contest to win copies of Posterchildren, you’ll hear from me soon by email!
EDIT: I had forgotten X-Treme X-Men
