  1. Joss Whedon: “There Are Four Prominent Female Roles” In Avengers: Age of Ultron

    Leaving this here.

    "There are four prominent female roles in the center of the movie, and a more balanced presence throughout the movie. But, you know, the guys are all there. There are more of them too. Hopefully it will satisfy everybody. I’m not trying to fulfill an agenda, but I’m interested in men and women. I’m interested in grown-ups who act like children and dress like clowns and punch each other."—Joss Whedon, speaking at the Guardians of the Galaxy premiere about Age of Ultron.

  4. How To Buy Comics: A Beginner’s Guide

    The Low Down on Your LCS

    With comics like Captain Marvel, Ms. Marvel, Rat Queens, Lumberjanes, Saga and more dragging new readers into the fold by their collars, one of the things we've often been asked for at The Mary Sue are some pointers on how to get started buying comics. As a veteran weekly comics purchaser, I find this totally reasonable, because buying comics is a retail experience that's absurdly non-intuitive compared to the experience of buying any other kind of mass-market print publication.

    Meanwhile...

    "While many stores report that their children’s comics sections continue to grow, the demographic that seems to be growing the fastest is young women, aged 17–33. Image titles like The Walking Dead, Saga, and Pretty Deadly have gotten their attention, but Wayne Wise reports that at Phantom of the Attic there are "a lot of young women who are really invested in Marvel and DC titles, as well as the Indies.

Data from a reader survey by digital comics vendor Comixology supports what retailers are seeing. Chip Mosher, Comixology’s v-p, communications and marketing, confirmed that 20% of its new customers in the third quarter of 2013 were females ages 17–26." - Shannon O’Leary writing for Publishers Weekly on findings in a recent comics retailer survey.

    This is the best reaction to this news that we've seen so far.

    It's hard to know how to feel about the recent passing of Fred Phelps, in no small part because he did a lot of terrible things and was generally (and rightly) seen as an extremely bad person. But, Matt Fraction and Kelly Sue DeConnick will make things a little easier for you by giving a bunch of their hard-earned comic book money to charity.
