There have been a lot of interesting stories about women in comics and fandom this week. Like this one about little girls dressing up as Rey at Comic Con, and how important that is. Or this one about how sales of Ghostbusters toys are exceeding expectations. To me, the week’s most exciting news is that […]
A few days ago, I went to an excellent exhibit at the Museum of American Illustration at the Society of Illustrators in New York City.

Coates is actually a great fit for Black […]
In this episode of the She-Fi podcast, we review X-Men Apocalypse. This movie really brought out the relationship dynamics between the characters, revealing their strengths and flaws.

So as I’m sure you’ve heard by now, Captain America: Steve Rogers #1 (written by Nick Spencer, artwork by Jesus Saiz) had a HUUUGE reveal this week that basically broke the internet. By the end of the issue, it looks like Cap has been a secret HYRDA agent all along! And people are FREAKING OUT! […]
Recently, I’ve been reading the Image series Paper Girls (written by Brian K. Vaughan of Saga fame, and artwork by Jared K. Fletcher, Matthew Wilson, and Cliff Chiang).
