  2. Comics 201: Small, Mighty, and Super Weird; or, A Brief Guide to Indie Comics

    The 1980s was a time of great upheaval and change for Western pop culture. MTV was new and relevant, car phones were a thing, Return of the Jedi came out and they never made any more Star Wars films ever at all shut up and let me dream, yours truly was born, and comic books entered their ninth-grade-goth phase.

  4. Games, Comics, and Genre TV Earn GLAAD Award Nominations

    The nominees for the 26th annual GLAAD Media Awards were announced today, which recognize works that have "fair, accurate, and inclusive representations of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender community and the issues that affect their lives." Because genre media can often be forward-thinking and groundbreaking in representation, it should come as no surprise that the things we love here on TMS are well-represented among the nominees.

  10. Comic-Con Interviews: iZombie’s Robert Buckley Tells Us About His Favorite Comic Books

    Graphic novels, ahem.

    As a fan of the Chris Roberson and Mike Allred comic series, I'm very much looking forward to The CW's iZombie adaptation, even if it strays from the source material. But during interview sessions at San Diego Comic-Con, I was surprised to find out star Robert Buckley, who plays Major Lilywhite, is a comic book reader as well.

  14. 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.

  16. 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.

  18. 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.
