  3. The Mary Sue Exclusive Interview: Lucy Knisley On Her New Graphic Novel, Something New

    In which weddings are weird. And awesome. But mostly super weird.

    Lucy Knisley's new graphic novel, Something New (which we exclusively announced earlier this week), is coming soon from First Second Books, and we're so excited about it. Something New follows Knisley as she attempts to plan a wedding - a process this geeky foodie finds entirely alienating. Lucy sat down to chat with The Mary Sue's Weekend Editor Sam Maggs about her wedding, the graphic novel, cupcake dresses, and Darth Vader.

  4. The Percentage of Female NYCC Attendees Has Risen Over 60% In Three Years

    Its packed to the GILLS with --wait, no. Sorry.

    New York Comic Con has only been around since 2006, but each year it gets exponentially bigger. Last year's convention saw 133,000 fans in attendance, as well as 2,500 press members and 9,200 trade professionals. This year, 3-day passes sold out only an hour after they were made available on the ReedPOP site. And if the numbers are any indication, a lot of those passes were probably bought by women.

  5. We Need All Voices in Comics (Or I Started the #FireRickRemender Hashtag and I’m Only Kind of Sorry About It)

    Republished with permission.

    Wednesday evening, following my first read of Rick Remender’s Captain America #22, I posted a series of entries to my blog reiterating my distaste for his work, and my renewed (and long-held) belief that he should no longer be writing it. I am genuinely sorry for any personal affront my actions may have caused. What I am not sorry for is everything that came afterward.

  8. Hijab-Wearing Superhero Fan Draws Herself As Various Comic Book Characters

    And it was good.

    "I am a Muslim girl (who wears a hijab) and I prefer to wear long/loose things that go below the butt" writes Tumblrer Nora. So when Nora participates in the Draw Yourself Challenge, those are the duds her chosen superheroes wear as well. The result is pretty dang nifty. It might be a day early to start flipping one's lid over America-related stuff, but that flag hijab makes me want to do a dance.

  10. Reimagining the Female Superhero: Gail Simone, Amy Reeder, Marguerite Bennett, & More Discuss Comics At Special Edition: NYC

    Supergirl-y!

    Saturday I attended a panel at Special Edition: NYC, and from what I gathered it was one of the only panels that day that was even nearing maximum capacity. The Carol Corps, various members of the Young Avengers team, and plenty more in addition to myself waited patiently in the ever-growing line for this event.
