  1. Pull it Together With Your Weekly Comics Bulletin: Huge Sales and Storm #1!

    We've got issues. Lots of issues.

    Welcome to Pull it Together, where the goal isn’t to tell you exactly what comics you should read, but to narrow the field by showing you titles you shouldn’t overlook. It isn’t about what’s on my pull list, it’s about what could be on yours!

  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.

  6. Young Women Are The Fastest Growing Demographic According To New Comics Retailer Survey

    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. New titles aimed at this group are an important part of this. Books like Captain Marvel, Ms. Marvel, and Young Avengers have been particularly successful.' 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.

  7. Behold! The 2014 Hugo Award Nominees!

    May the Odds Be Ever in Your Favor

    Game of Thrones, Doctor Who, Orphan Black, Gravity, Frozen, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, Pacific Rim, Iron Man 3, Saga, and more high-quality SF/F than you can shake a stick at. That certainly covers a whole bunch of our post tags. The Hugo Awards honor both pros and fans alike, and as usual, the 2014 nominees provide a superb checklist of things to read, watch, and enjoy. The winners will be announced on Sunday, August 17 at Loncon 3 (aka the 72nd World Science Fiction Convention). The full list of nominees is available below. And should you need to gush about your favorites, mention absent works you feel are deserving (*cough* Janelle Monae's The Electric Lady for Best Related Work *cough*), or...ah...have a measured discussion about nominees you may object to, the comments are here for your disposal.

  8. The Mary Sue Interview: Fiona Staples of Saga!

    We try not to brag about how awesome it is to live in New York City, but every year when the Museum of Comics and Comics Art's MoCCA Fest rolls around, it's hard not to. A small con that mostly attracts comics' indie and creator owned scene, it's a great place to get a low crowds (and low stress!) encounter with the creator of your favorite webcomic, comic, or even tumblr comic. I trotted up to the 69th Regiment Armory this weekend and walked away with a couple of short but sweet interviews, and the first with Fiona Staples, artist and co-creator with Brian K. Vaughan of Image Comics' amazing series Saga.
