This is a Marvel NOW! title and Ms. Marvel is now Kamala Khan, a teenage girl who is also Pakistani-American. Kamala is the first Muslim character to headline her own comic at Marvel. The religion and heritage of the new heroine in this title caused a tizzy, but Marvel and the creative team didn’t just change the age and race of the Ms. Marvel to get attention,

As a #WonderWoman fan I avoided this title. When I went to pick up comics in the DC section at FirstAid Comics, I tried to avoid looking in the area I knew it was in. I assumed it would at best disappoint me and at worse, upset me like Batwoman after issue #24. One of the covers I couldn’t help but see, issue #4, really had me worried that my girl Wonder Woman was trapped in a bad romance novel.
I wasn’t at odds with the plausibility of their relationship. I could see them hanging around the JLA Watchtower on a slow day and hitting it off and Continue reading “POWER COUPLE”

In her new book, The Secret History of Wonder Woman, which hits shelves Tuesday, New Yorker writer and Harvard professor Jill Lepore delves into the life of the man who created Wonder Woman. The… Continue reading 7 Amazing Things You Didn’t Know About Wonder Woman
Rocket Girl is a comic that is seriously underrated and bound to be one of the great ones. It is still in its infancy and it leaves its readers hungry for more. Volume 1, Times Squared, collects issues 1-5 and it is one impressive and promising start. I don’t think I have ever smiled so much while reading. Anyway, more to the point:
This is a re-print from Image Comics and one of the first things you will notice about this graphic novel is that the art is done … Continue reading WHITE DEATH
KE Payne has created a protagonist that is not only accessible, but almost palpable. The novel opens with Tag Grainger in a situation that many of us will someday find ourselves in; the death of a parent and the necessity to return home. The “home” she is to return to is a fading and forgotten scar.
Red Sonja is refreshingly cranky… Continue reading Red Sonja vol. 1
