As you’ve probably seen there’s a lot of talk about Riri Williams, who will be taking over Tony Stark’s mantle in Marvel comics. Unfortunately, there have been objections from some that it’s just Marvel trying to be politically correct. And some people are asking – in a very dismissive way – “Why can’t they just create […]
We reviewed Suicide Squad. We thought it had its issues, but overall, it was a fun movie.
If you’ve been following the adventures of Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur (written by Brandon Montclare and Amy Reeder, artwork by Natacha Bustos), you probably love Lunella Lafayette as much as I do. Marvel’s smartest character is spunky, enthusiastic, and super likable. But Lunella is more than that. She represents the spirit that we want […]
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 […]
If you haven’t been reading Valiant’s comic book series Faith, you literally need to press the pause button and go do it right now (well, not right now – you should finish reading this blog first). The comic (written by Jody Houser, art by Marguerite Sauvage and Francis Portela), stars Faith Herbert, an online content writer […]

So you may have heard that Ta Nehisi Coates is writing the new Black Panther comics. This is a fascinating move on Marvel’s part, since Coates is a journalist for The Atlantic, not a comic book writer by trade, and his work usually explores social and political issues. Coates is actually a great fit for Black […]
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). It’s fantastic in so many ways. Of course, I love female driven comics, and this one definitely delivers. What’s great about the series is, not only does it […]
In this She-Fi Funny, Sarah and Aimee have their own Civil War. The motivation for this great divide is not the issue of registration, like in the movie, Captain America Civil War, but an issue of a grander scale: what’s better, peanut butter or jelly?
