  1. No Ifs, No Butts: Spider-Woman and the Comic Community’s Problem with Minority Readers

    Do better, industry.

    Sometimes it’s easy to see the potential of an iconic image from a first glance. War photography, Marilyn Monroe on a subway grate, Doge—that kind of stuff. Did I see that potential when I first saw Milo Manara’s variant Spider-Woman cover? No, I really just thought her butt looked weird.

  2. Marvel’s Black Widow #12 Cover Features CNN’s Anderson Cooper Because Of Course It Does

    Black Widow, Silver Fox, what's the difference?

    In all seriousness, this cover by Phil Noto is incredibly gorgeous. And it's not just a one-image gimmick, either: according to the creative team behind Black Widow, Anderson Cooper will play an integral role to the plot as he "exposes the tangled web of the Widow’s past discretions." Uhhhh, yes please?

  3. An Artistic Critique of Milo Manara and Greg Land’s Controversial Spider-Woman Covers

    Alternate title: "Milo Manara's DisHEARTening Spider-Woman Variant Cover Gets An Artistic ReBUTTal"

    After seeing Milo Manara’s recent, erm, anatomically improbable Spider-Woman variant cover, plus the regular cover by Greg Land, artist Karine Charlebois was compelled to take her to blog Less Tits N’ Ass, More Kickin’ Ass to do a little corrective work.

  8. The Comic Industry Just Had The Best Sales Month In Recorded History. You Can Thank Rocket Raccoon.

    *pets head*

    I've talked often about how successful comic book movies don't necessarily get new readers into comic shops (and don't really try to) but it seems that just this once, it's happened. People freaking love a potty-mouthed raccoon a whole lot.

  9. Marvel Puts On Private Screening of GotG For Rocket Raccoon’s Creator, Film’s Director Also Makes Us Feel Feelings

    Sad ones. Sniff.

    I won't get to see Guardians of the Galaxy until tonight, unfortunately, but I've already heard that for a story which involves talking raccoon and a giant Vin Diesel tree, it's a surprising tearjerker. Speaking of surprising tearjerkers, you know what else gets me all choked up? Literally everything else I've heard about GOTG so far, starting with the screening Marvel put together for disabled Rocket Raccoon creator Bill Mantlo.
