Fans got the chance to read the brand new A-Force #1 last week but Marvel has already announced a brand new creative team for the series. Writer Kelly Thompson (Gem and the Holograms) is joining artist Ben Caldwell (Prez) to take over the series from writers G. Willow Wilson (Ms. Marvel), Marguerite Bennett (Angela: Queen […]
How long does the Marvel Universe stay All-New and All-Different? How long does the Marvel Rundown (in it’s current incarnation) stay viable? The answer lies in the first column of the Marvel Rundown: The publisher’s landmark Secret Wars event has been delayed repeatedly, but Marvel is moving ahead as scheduled with their full line relaunch, […]
Is it truly all new and different? G. Willow Wilson and Jorge Molina are back on the book from before that whole Secret Wars thing, as are Singularity, She-Hulk, Captain Marvel, Dazzler, Medusa and Nico Minoru. Somewhat new? According to the blurb, coming back from the Secret Wars Singularity has to get the team together but they don’t remember who she is. Awkward.
At any rate, the lady Avengers get to recreate the all-timer Straight Outta Compton album cover, and that’s pretty cool.

Marvel’s A-Force #1 from G. Willow Wilson and Marguerite Bennett with art from Jorge Molina features a stable of the publishers mightiest female heroes — and Captain Marvel punching a shark. The comic takes place during Battleworld in the upcoming Secret Wars event, which see’s nearly every Marvel character converging (haha) on one singular planet. The warriors […]

The series is a trade paperback anthology collection that presents work published from Marvel in a new format shipping bi-monthly. Included in the first collection that is already up for pre-order for Amazon shoppers is Ms. Marvel, Black […]
I guess the View ladies boofed this but the news is out– and PSYCHE IT WASN’T STAR WARS! Marvel is gathering its heroines for A-Force, an all female Avengers, with the creative team of Marguerite Bennett, G. Willow Wilson and Jorge Molina.
A raft of PR went out at 11:30 after the View was supposed to announce this, but they didn’t because…. Martha Stewart came on and talked about fringe, and Kim Catrall talked about life after the city of sex or something. YOU CANNOT CONTROL THE LADIES OF THE VIEW, people.
