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? 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 is prepping to relaunch their entire line (which we are taking a look at in critical detail) including the acclaimed Ms. Marvel series. Ms. Marvel was promoted to Captain Marvel in 2012 effectively leaving the Ms. Marvel moniker open. Kamala Khan swooped in two years later after the events of Infinity triggered a terrigen […]

Last night I made the epic journey* to Jersey City to host a talk with G. Willow Wilson at the Word bookstore. This shop opened a few months ago and has a healthy interest in graphic novels. The event was the biggest they’ve yet held, I was told, with 80 people or so, a full […]
G. Willow Wilson and Adrian Alphona made quite a splash with Ms. Marvel. The creation of Kamala Khan, a Pakistani American teenager who becomes a superhero somehow taps into the current world of texting and multi-cultural society—just the way Marvel’s most memorable books have always done.
