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

Y'know, Scans Daily has sort of spoiled me. I forget that their are sites complaining about all the minorities in JLA, about how a female character "isn't sexy enough" or that something's "EW GAY".

Yeah, I have these two guy friends in class (they're both Wolverine fans who want things to be more "Cool"), and the other week I was complaining about a title being canceled and one of them said "That's because you like lame characters."

Probably Blue Beetle. I'm always complaining about Blue Beetle being canceled.

Maybe something else, I can't remember. If class hadn't started right then... *shakes fist*

I am too! Especially to my non-comics friends.

To complete strangers even.


It would be a lot less sad if it wasn't true.

There's always a good time to complain about Blue Beetle being cancelled.

If I had the inclination, I would call local radio talk shows to complain about it >:(

If I was listening to the radio, suddenly heard some random person complaining about Blue Beetle being canceled - Well, let's just say that I would like the radio a lot more.

:D It would make my day.

Did you tell them "YOU are why comic books sell worse than video game adaptations of That's So Raven"?

Unfortunately, I completely lack the ability to give off snappy come-backs (at least for ten minutes, at which point it isn't snappy anymore).

Note to self: teach brain to learn definition of "snappy".
