  1. Wait, Why’s There A Star Wars Variant Cover For Princess Leia #1 That Doesn’t Have Princess Leia On It?

  2. Dynamite Announces Massive Crossover Event All Between Classic Female Pulp Characters by All Female Writers

    THE FEMALE MENACE

    You've probably heard of Red Sonja and Vampirella. And these days you've probably also gotten wind of Dejah Thoris, the main lady lead in the John Carter of Mars stories, and perhaps even Mulan Kato, highly competent partner of the socialite/vigilante Green Hornet.

  6. Here’s Your First Look At The “Women of Marvel” Variant Covers Coming This March

    Yay talented ladies!

    Despite the fact that DC Comics and Marvel are slowly, sloooowly geting better when it comes featuring different types of gender, racial, and body diversity in their books, the behind-the-scenes ratio of male to female comic creators leaves something to be desired. So it's cool to see that in March, Marvel will be doing a special variant cover event to highlight their pool of female artists. But is it enough?

  7. The Mary Sue Interview: Comic Historian Nicky Wheeler-Nicholson on Her New Book & Women in Comics

    If you’ve ever read a DC comic, you owe a thank you to Major Malcolm Wheeler-Nicholson for founding the iconic company, and paving the way for the comic book as we know it today.
