G4 broke the news that Kathryn Immonen and Tonci Zonjic will collaborate on HERALDS, the “Marvel Women” event that there’s been some rumbling about. She-Hulk, Emma Frost Valkyrie, Hellcat, Agent Brand, and Monica Rambeau will get involved in a weekly five-issue mini dealing with a long lost herald of Galactus. Here’s the segment.
To be honest, this is kinda a cool idea. These are all strong characters, easily able to carry their own story. In the segment, Zonjic’s art looks very appealing. No one is being felt up by a squid on the first cover, and if it stays that way, things will be just peachy.
A while ago we mentioned that the whole “Women in Comics” thing has three aspects to it — women as readers, women as characters and women as creators. Marvel’s Year of the Women has hit the last two pretty well; let’s hope the first one follows.
