REVIEW: Spider-Gwen #1

L. reviews the highly-anticipated Spider-Gwen!

Having rattled many a figurative comics cage in my blogging time in attempts to get publishers to take notice (and they didn’t), it is beyond gratifying to see Spider-Gwen #1 come to print. Last September, a spidey-powered Gwen Stacy graced the pages of Edge of the Spider-Verse #2 as just an alternate-world character, but the fan response was so overwhelmingly positive that Marvel gave Gwen her own book.

What does that mean? Continue reading “REVIEW: Spider-Gwen #1”

REVIEW: Daredevil #12

Waid and Samnee continue to create an excellent comic in DAREDEVIL.

Tons of my comic nerd colleagues sing the praises of Mark Waid and Chris Samnee’s Daredevil. So, I have known for like years that I should probably read it, but it’s just one of many books I had not gotten around to reading yet. Continue reading “REVIEW: Daredevil #12”

V. reviews Edge of Spider-Verse #2

Gwen Stacy makes a pretty cool Spider-Woman.

Ever since Spider-Gwen was announced, the comic world has been buzzing with praise for her design, cosplayers are popping up at cons and there was an all-around anticipation-high for the character. Jason Latour and Robbie Rodriguez’s Edge of Spider-Verse #2 features Gwen Stacy as the unwitting soul who got bit by a spider in all her tenacious glory. It’s a strong start and a great (girl) character. You can read my full review HERE.

On Marvel’s All-Girl X-Men

A ton of hype surrounded the launch of the all-female X-Men team, and now hype is about all that’s left.

X-Men #1 by Terry Dodson

The all-female X-Men started off full of promise. The first issue had a solid premise and was graced with Olivier Coipel’s stellar lines. The first arc laid the groundwork for a variety of female characterizations we rarely get to see in superhero comics like single-motherhood and alpha-female postulating.   Continue reading “On Marvel’s All-Girl X-Men”

Kamala Khan Day!

Ms. Marvel #1 is a must-read, must-buy comic.

There’s been plenty of buzz surrounding the release of Ms. Marvel #1 featuring a new title character, Kamala Khan. Kamala is a 16 year-old Pakistani-American, Muslim geek girl who loves the Avengers, fantasizes about being super and just wants to fit in with her peers. Continue reading “Kamala Khan Day!”

V. reviews Captain America #11

V. is pleasantly surprised by Captain America #11.

Based on my glorious experience with Uncanny X-Force, I already knew Rick Remender was a good writer. While I have plenty of faith in his talent, I didn’t think he was so good that he could make a character like Captain America compelling.

I was wrong.

What do I mean by “a character like Captain America?” He’s as white-bread and straight-edge as it gets. While I don’t actively dislike the character, he certainly wasn’t interesting to me … until now. In just one issue, I like the guy. I may even come back around for another issue or two.
