FAKE GEEK GUYS: A MESSAGE TO MEN ABOUT SEXUAL HARASSMENT
By Andy Khouri
“I think this woman is wrong about something on the Internet. Clearly my best course of action is to threaten her with rape.”
That’s crazy talk, right? So why does it happen all the time?
Honest question, dudes.
That women are harassed online is not news. That women in comics and the broader fandom cultures are harassed online is not news. That these women are routinely transmitted anonymous messages describing graphic sexual violence perpetrated upon them for transgressions as grave as not liking a thing… that is actually news to me, and it’s probably news to a lot of you guys reading this.
So what do we do about it?
This.

Kate Kasenow recommends Ms. Marvel #3

As a recent reboot, the new Ms. Marvel series from Marvel Comics has quite a history to live up to, but the newest issue does not disappoint!

Written by seasoned comics novelist G. Willow Wilson (gwillow) and illustrated by the talented Adrian Alphona with beautiful colors by Ian Herring (iherring) , Ms. Marvel #3 is the ongoing exploration of what it means to become a hero in a world already inundated with superhero culture. In this issue we are carried along with lead protagonist Kamala Khan as she explores the boundaries of her newfound powers. Tensions are riding high as Kamala’s ongoing struggle to discover who she is bombarded by parental expectations and cultural obligations.

There have been a lot of great things happening in this series from the start. Firstly, we have a new female, Pakistani, Muslism superhero. Second, we have a diverse cast full of great characters who are given their own chances to shine and develop in each issue. Lastly, we are viewing the established Marvel universe through the unique lens; Kamala herself has long been a fan of the superheroes we know, but is a newcomer to their inner workings. That itself is what makes this series perfect for old fans and new readers alike.

So, if you haven’t been reading, now is a great time to get started!

Mike Isenberg recommends Solar: Man of the Atom #1

Did you know that Solar: Man Of The Atom #1 writer Frank Barbiere (fjbarb) used to work with us here at comiXology before leaving to become a full-time comics scribe?

Solar: Man Of The Atom #1 (written by Frank and drawn by Joe Bennett) is the newest book in Dynamite Entertainment’s re-launch of the classic “Gold Key” characters, which were originally created by publisher Gold Key in the 60’s.  They have since made their home at a handful of other publishers (the original incarnation of Valiant, Acclaim, Dark Horse), and are now getting the royal treatment as the new kids on the block at Dynamite.

I’ll admit that I’m not familiar at all with the history of Solar, having never read the previous comics.  That didn’t stop me from enjoying the new book, though.  Everything you need to know is set up as the story unfolds.  “The Man Of The Atom” is a super-powered vigilante—the alter-ego of scientist Phil Seleski—with the power to use energy manipulation and a knowledge of chemistry and physics to change the physical makeup of the matter around him.  Basically, think Breaking Bad's Walter White, given the powers of Watchmen's Doctor Manhattan.  And, y’know, a super-hero, rather than a drug dealer.

Issue #1 introduces us to Seleski as he thwarts an attempted bank robbery.  He dispatches the robbers with apparent ease, but all is not as bright as it seems, as things begin to go wrong with his powers.  We’re then introduced to his estranged daughter, Erica, who has reluctantly returned to her father’s side in his time of need.  In between we get hints that the secrets Phil has surrounded himself with may be starting to crumble, and that an extra-terrestrial threat may be looming.

I guess I’m starting to see why Frank gave up the glory of data entry to work on comics. Solar: Man of the Atom #1 is an all-around fun read and one that I can definitely recommend.

A comiXologist Recommends:
Harris Smith recommends Justice League #29

One of my favorite things about DC Comics has always been their less-used, oddball characters, and it’s been fun over the past few years to see how overlooked superheroes like The Creeper and The Phantom Stranger have been reintroduced into the New 52. Justice League #29 brings us another eccentric favorite, the Metal Men!  Created in 1962 by comics legends Robert Kanigher and Ross Andru, the bickering, often neurotic androids of the Metal Men have often brought a charming, ironically very human humor to their stories (although their excellent 2007 miniseries tended more towards the metaphysical than the comical) and fortunately writer Geoff Johns continues this tradition, ably aided by Doug Mahnke’s detailed, expressive artwork. 

Particularly enjoyable in this issue are the Metal Men’s interactions with the Justice League’s Cyborg, partially a metal man himself.  Johns has a history of imbuing his writing with a lot of humanity (particularly in his 2007 Justice Society of America series) and we get a taste of that here in the juxtaposition of Cyborg’s humorous introduction to the Metal Men against a more emotional face-off against his Crime Syndicate counterpart, Grid, a living computer virus made from Cyborg’s junked parts.  Cyborg’s struggling with his own sense of what makes him human conflicting against Grid’s totally lack of humanity makes for a really compelling character dynamic in this issue.

If you’re a fan of the Metal Men or Cyborg, or if you’re gearing up for the finale of Forever Evil, or if you just enjoy well-written (and drawn) comics, Justice League #29’s got what you’re looking for in a superhero comic this week.
