As one of Marvel’s longest creator runs comes to an end, Dan Slott is taking time to stop and smell the roses with Amazing Spider-Man Annual #42. Will the quiet story centered the classic Spidey supporting cast members be the start of Slott’s big Spidey send-off? Also, the mystery of Kamala Khan’s disappearance in Ms. Marvel #27 […]
So yeah, watching comics twitter react to Marvel’s marketing thoughts over the last few days was like being on a hill and watching a tsunami arrive, and then the water broke in new waves and pools and oh my god. I’ll have more to say about all of this after I write about MoCCA, but for now […]
Ms Marvel #13 Writer: G. Willow Wilson Artist: Mirka Andolfo Colorist: Ian Herring Letterer: Joe Caramagna It’s hard to believe that Kamala Khan’s story is just three years old. Under the steady hand of writer G. Willow Wilson and a number of excellent artists, most notably Adrian Alphona, Kamala’s character has already made an indelible impact on the Marvel universe […]
Have you been paying attention to the upcoming election? Crazy huh? Can we possibly survive the next four days without blowing our brains out? It’s going to be a close call. IN the meantime, Ms. Marvel suggests you vote. She doesn’t say which way to vote, but probably she’d support the candidate that doesn’t want […]

The Comics Beat’s staff votes on the best Comic Books and Graphic Novels of the year.
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?
