Announced in today's My Cup O' Joe Myspace blog where Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning filled in for Quesada

An all new limited series called Marvel Divas starting in July from Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa and Tonci Zonjicy. It will feature Blackcat, Photon, Hellcat and Firestar.



“The idea behind the series was to have some sudsy fun and lift the curtain a bit and take a peep at some of our most fabulous super heroines. In the series, they're an unlikely foursome of friends--Black Cat, Hell Cat, Firestar, and Photon--with TWO things in common: They're all leading double-lives and they're all having romantic trouble. The pitch started as "Sex and the City" in the Marvel Universe, and there's definitely that "naughty" element to it, but I also think the series is doing to a deeper place, asking question about what it means...truly means...to be a woman in an industry dominated by testosterone and guns. (And I mean both the super hero industry and the comic book industry.) But mostly it's just a lot of hot fun.
”- Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa

Yeah, women are sexy because women are humans and sexuality us part of The (adult?) Human Experience. When they have books about males, there's always a BIT of sexy, right? Because that's how people are. Why isn't that enough? To just replicate the "oh, my enemy is wearing a revealing costume, i feel all warm" and "if only that babe knew i was REALLY [sekrit identity]" bits that exist in every (malecentric) comic book ever.. only with a lady or ladies? Why does it HAVE TO BE ground into our FACES?

AAaauuuarrrrghhhhhh!!!
