"I was thinking about this idea of women in tubes. I was thinking about the traditional shower scenes in women in prison exploitation films, and how their nudity is done provocatively. It's a salacious, voyeuristic nudity. I wanted this to be different. I wanted their bodies to be presented as bodies. I had some conversations with Val about the women having different shapes, sizes and characteristics -- muscles, sagging, cellulite. We wanted it to feel like flesh. I started this women-in-tubes thing. It's a science fiction trope that is remarkably common if you just Google it. It was fascinating to me. I had this notion that one of these bodies would be so large that it would press up against the glass and that was the beginning of Penny. I wanted one woman to be very big and unapologetic and I wanted her to be adamant that she would take up space and it was not her job to conform to your idea of beautiful." - Kelly Sue DeConnick

Okay yes I'm posting backwards, but this one took a little more thought into what I'd include (where last time I just wanted to show the Spider-Woman part), and I don't think anything was posted from this issue before unless it was missing both the Captain Marvel tag, and the Kelly Sue tag.


With Lila Cheney mutant music star, Captain Marvel and Tic will travel so far. )

Answer not very well. )

"And I was thinking a lot about the white default -- this notion we seem to have that everyone is white unless you specify otherwise. I decided I wanted to reverse that. I asked Val to do a thing in the script where unless I specify someone is white, they're not." - Kelly Sue DeConnick

Have I? Because I really should have by now. Carol's a character I sometimes forget, largely because I'm one of those kids that came in from watching Marvel's cartoons/playing their video games so I only tend to remember those characters, and frankly, Carol's really underused outside of comics. Its a little shameful that if you're not an Avengers comic reader, the most people tend to know about her is 'that one superhero that Rogue stole powers from' (hell, I've seen more than one X-Men fanfic about 're-imagining' the franchise (like the Ultimate Universe, but with less Mark Millar) or similar stories that depicts her as a villain (Worse, once she was a Nazi for crying out loud!), so that Rogue doesn't look like an A-Hole for utterly destroying her). Because of this, I almost completely missed her recent ongoing due to a combination of being too busy with other comics or being flat broke and unable to afford more than three comics a month (tis was a dark time for I). I also somehow keep forgetting about Avengers Assemble; I think its because the opening issues reeked of movie tie-in so I wasn't interested, but I keep forgetting to mention it or buy it.
That changed with the recent 'Enemy Within' Crossover, and I decided to post some scans from the fourth instalment of this Carolitious crossover.

Once this story ends, I'm getting the trades of both these books. My bank account will hate me for it, but damn do I need it.

 Because I just got a letter back from a writer, as opposed to the editor, of a comic book I've been following religiously up to now. 

Hooray, a letter! Also, slightly spoilery for Osborn #4.  )

Greetings True Believers!

I have another post of how awesome the Thor crew is. This one is about Thor's Asgardian love and one of the finest warriors in the Nine Worlds, the Lady Sif!

Midgard women sometimes get their groove back by beginning unconventional relationships, traveling to other countries or by signing up for a pilates class. How does an Asgardian woman do it? By slicing and dicing space pirate scum. Enjoy!

Some previews for the upcoming Sif one-shot, by writer Kelly Sue DeConnick (Matt Fraction's wife, fittingly enough, as he's the next writer on the Thor title) and artist Ryan Stegman.
