Spider-Woman Is Sexy, Sexy, Sexy

This week, the site Comic Book Resources got an exclusive  look at the covers for some upcoming comics, including Spider-Woman #1.  It’s very cool of course (see one of the covers after the jump), but one of the variant covers released by Marvel (above left) is a real head-scratcher. You can see how Spider-Woman is crouching, presumably right after she climbed up a wall, with her rather-emphasized ass up in the air. Similar photos of crouching Spider-Man that I found online — the one above, as well as the one tweeted here — are not quite the same. Keep reading »

5 Genre-Busting Comic Books For People Who Think They Hate Comic Books

Until I was in my early twenties, I was never that into comic books. See, I have a lot of trouble being a “dabbler” when it comes to things that captivate me. A coworker of mine recently joked that he’d want me to be president of his hypothetical fan club, because he knew that I’d get, and I quote, “SUPER into it.” And it’s true: Until I’ve dug myself headfirst into a universe, I constantly feel like I’m missing out on something vital.

9 Women Who Write Webcomics You Should Absolutely Be Reading

There are approximately one thousand billion independent comics out there on the Internet and I am a fan of almost all of them. Crudely-drawn one-panels or intricately inked, sweeping stories — there’s something out there for everyone, really.

One of the things I love most about webcomics is how accessible they are. They’re drawn by people just like you or me — they have jobs, they fight with their significant others about doing the dishes. They take public transit and accidentally step in rain puddles. But in my mind, they’re like superheroes: mild-mannered blue-collar worker by day, but by night, they churn out these amazing works of art.

Here’s the thing: there are a lot of really lovely, female-positive webcomics out there created by dudes, but this list? This list is for the ladies. Keep reading »

calvin and hobbes documentary dear mr watterson
A Boy And His Tiger

Calvin And Hobbes was everything in my childhood. Everything. I read the strip every day in the my parents’ newspaper and had all the Calvin And Hobbes books. Okay, they were my brother’s books and I stole them, but that’s besides the point. I loved to pretend that my teddy bear, Gregory, could come alive and only I would see him, just like Hobbes. I’m sure part of the reason today that I love graphic novels as much as I do is because I read so many smart, multi-layered comic strips as a kid. So I’m kinda peeing my pants right now to see that there’s going to be a Calvin And Hobbes documentary, “Dear Mr. Watterson,” about the strip and its cartoonist Bill Watterson. After the series ended in 1995, Watterson has remained mostly out of the public eye as a sort of modern-day J.D. Salinger. I’ll be fascinated to see if he makes an appearance in this doc. I can’t wait! [The Mary Sue]
