THE CAROL CORPS ISSUE!
• THE special oversized issue to end all oversized issues!
• In the aftermath of Enemy Within, Carol Danvers must rebuild her memories through the eyes of her biggest fan.
• Find out why this is such a fan-beloved series!
The Carol Corps issue is up on Comixology, y’all.
As always, I recommend you get your comics from fabulous local comic shop, because I think that’s the most fun way to experience our community. If that’s not your bag, though, or you don’t have a great shop near you or you just prefer an online community, don’t let me tell you what to do.
Digital links to all my books are up right here.
The fact that Kamala will be starting out in her own title shows the significant push that Marvel is willing to put behind her: historically sidekicks and other spinoff characters start out as secondary characters in a more famous character’s book, build some name recognition, and then eventually get their own series. This is also just plain cool because female superheroes with sidekicks? They are few and far between. There’s Wonder Woman and Donna Troy, Batwoman and Flamebird (Or Bat-Girl, if you want to get old school), and you’d be hard pressed to name any more, primarily because so many female superheroes are either sidekicks, spinoff characters, or members of a team. Women who mentor or are mentored by women are thin on the ground in popular fiction, and I look forward to seeing some juicy interactions with Carol’s realization that some kid thinks she’s so cool that she’ll put her life on the line for other people.
As card-totin’, outspoken members of the Carol Corps, the comiXology team is veryveryvery excited for this one.
Guest Star KARA’s Picks of the Week for 10/23/13!
- Sex Criminals #2 - The first issue was totally racy in the best possible way: a maturely handled, well written, immensely relatable story of female sexual awakening. Also, our heroine and her cohort rob banks because when they [redacted], time stops around them. Seriously, how are you not reading this?
- Rat Queens #2 - They drink, they cuss, they fight—they’re the Rat Queens, and they’re AWESOME. They’re not “strong female characters,” they’re here to party, and tough cookies if you get in their way.
- Pretty Deadly #1 - Come for Kelly Sue but stay for Emma. Her art is almost unfairly amazing. I’m so mesmerized I might not even read the words (at least at first). You’ve read the hype, now read the book.
- Green Team: Teen Trillionaires #5 - Yeah, if you had that much money, you’d buy a super suit, too. This glorious trainwreck is DC Comics’ answer to Rich Kids Of Instagram and their ilk. It’s ridiculous and over the top, and that’s why I love it.
Kara supervises the international production team at comiXology and has a small army of Transformers on her desk.
but who’s counting?
A page from Pretty Deadly #2, pencils and inks by the incomparable Emma Ríos (@emmartian)
Like it? Tell your retailer, please!
So, 6 days until Pretty Deadly #1 comes out and the team is working on Pretty Deadly #4 and putting the finishing touches on Pretty Deadly #2.
Anybody want to see a page from #2…?
I kind of want to show off one of my favorite pages but I can’t decide. Emma’s a BEAST. I’m really dying for you to see this.
What do you think?
How about this, if we can get 100 notes on this post in the next hour, I’ll put up a full black and white page from Issue #2.
If we can get 200 notes, I’ll put up two pages.
Ready, set, go.
Words can not express how excited we are for Pretty Deadly over here
literally had to run from the booth to snap this, thus the blur, but just wanted to say that comiXology loves the Carol Corps! <3
