    Susana Polo — Editor at Large

    Susana Polo thought she'd get her Creative Writing degree from Oberlin, work a crap job, and fake it until she made it into comics. Instead she stumbled into a great job: founding and running this very website (she's Editor at Large now, very fancy). She's spoken at events like Geek Girl Con, New York Comic Con, and Comic Book City Con, wants to get a Batwoman tattoo and write a graphic novel, and one of her canine teeth is in backwards.

  2. Take an Inside Look at Powers, the Superhero Police Procedural That’s Finally Becoming a Show

    Coming soon to a Playstation near you.

    Powers has been on the road to becoming a live action television adaptation since before Iron Man was a twinkle in Kevin Feige's eye, and it's great to see it finally make it to screens. It's also pretty interesting to see the Playstation Network move into original video content, and to see the series make such a commitment to raceblind casting in its leads. In fact, I think we can safely upgrade it from interesting to exciting!

  3. From the Editor: A Farewell to The Mary Sue (Or a New Regeneration)

    Just pretend you're Rose Tyler.

    Don't panic! At least not until you've read the entire article. Actually, please still keep from panicking after that too.

  4. PBS Game/Show Tackles the Racist Pitfalls That Can Go Along With NPCs of Color in Video Games

    Yeah, I have always been a little side-eye about the Gerudo.

    Jamin Warren brings up a lot of good points about how the player agency which lies at the heart of most games often results in dehumanized NPCs, which become doubly problematic when PCs are majority white and/if NPCs are predominantly brown. He also tackles the common scifi/fantasy trope of using inter-species conflict as a metaphor for inter-racial conflict, one that I've been mulling over myself for a while now.

  5. X-Men: Apocalypse Casts Its Baby Nightcrawler, Deadpool Recasts Colossus

    And by baby I mean teenager, and by teenager, I mean I am old.

    Meet Kodi Smit-McPhee. Or perhaps you've met him before, as the lead roles ParaNorman, or Let Me In, the American Let The Right One In.

  6. Dynamite Announces Massive Crossover Event All Between Classic Female Pulp Characters by All Female Writers

    THE FEMALE MENACE

    You've probably heard of Red Sonja and Vampirella. And these days you've probably also gotten wind of Dejah Thoris, the main lady lead in the John Carter of Mars stories, and perhaps even Mulan Kato, highly competent partner of the socialite/vigilante Green Hornet. Jungle Girl was created by Edgar Rice Burroughs, Miss Fury is basically a female Batman, but when we get to Masquerade, and Lady Zorro even I'm at a loss. But here's what they definitely have in common.

  7. Pull It Together: Bitch Planet Backstory, Ms. Marvel Valentines Special, and the End of She-Hulk

    We've got issues. Lots of issues.

    Welcome to Pull It Together, where the goal is to narrow the massive field of comic book titles to the ones you shouldn’t overlook. It isn’t about what’s on my pull list; it’s about what could be on yours!

  8. There are Plumes Coming Out of Mars; This is Literally How War of the Worlds Begins

    Of all the times to come down with a cold...

    So scientists and astronomers have noticed the sudden appearance of hundreds of mile long plumes of... stuff on Mars, and two years later they still have no idea what may have caused them or what the plumes were made up of.

  9. [Update] Hold on to Your Squeedly-Spooch: Oni Press Teases Invader Zim Comic

    A weird chihuahua has appeared beside you.

    Yup, that's the Invader Zim font. And yup, that's the word that Invader Zim ruined for the use of dramatic tension, "doom." (I love you, Invader Zim, just don't talk to me about reading the "Drums in the Deep" chapter of The Fellowship of the Ring out loud.)

  10. Scientists Can Temporarily Force Birds to Be Friends With Whoever They Want

    *Evil laughter.*

    Are you a lonely princess looking for a hand with some housework? A precocious child in the Australian outback looking for adventure? A hard-working wizard with last minute travel plans? A spaceship commander with an open attitude towards relationships between humans and aliens, particularly justice-hungry former cops with sexy-sounding voice actors? Science has a solution for you: make friends with birds.
