3 Chicks Review Comics – Episode 040

Hey! It’s our 40th episode!


Inside this episode! We review Justin Gray, Jimmy Palmiotti, and Amanda Conner’s digital release Ame-Comi Wonder Woman #1 with wonderful colors by Paul Mounts; Jeff Lemire and Mikel Janin’s Justice League Dark #9. We then have an oversized installment talking with writer Kelly Sue DeConnick about her upcoming project Captain Marvel as well as her reboot of Ghost for Dark Horse with Phil Noto, and an upcoming creator owned project with Emma Rios! We also geek out about The Avengers movie, speculate on The Dark Knight Rises, and talk about writing for different artists! For Chick of the Week this week I choose the uber-talented (and delightful) Stephanie Hans, who I’ve now had the pleasure of working with twice and can’t even express how wonderful it has been. I get all tongue-tied even. We also chat about the Alan Scott reveal and Hunger Games and how closet (and not so closet) racism and homophobia still depress the crap out of us.

Good episode :D

Ghost sounds fun… I’ve never heard of it before.

I dug Avengers when Carol was the leader post-Civil War. I liked it because she was an awkward fit in terms of calling the shots but a good moral compass and a heavy-hitter. In fact, I really dug that whole era of Ms. Marvel stories. The Team Lightning Storm stuff by Brian Reed was super fun. And I’m looking forward to this new series!

i loved this one! really fun and interesting and Kelly Sue DeConnick is great to listen to and i am pumped about her project with Emma Rios!!! omg.

i agree (of course) it’s disgusting and frustrating and sad about the bad reactions to the Alan Scott stuff, and whenever there’s anything like that in superhero comics, too, like all the jerkoffs on the ComicsAlliance forum threads. they’re everywhere and sometimes it feels like this overwhelming tide of awfulness that you can’t do anything about, you can’t stand in its way or you’ll drown, as much as i want to engage some of these people. made even worse because we’re ostensibly in the same “scene” as them being into comics or whatever, blagh. i guess it can only get better, right…?

Stephanie Hans’ stuff for TGWWBK is definitely amazing. can’t wait for everyone to read the book!!

About the Avengers, if I remember right, the Marvel Studios movie The Incredible Hulk did show that he could voluntarily transform when he needs to in the fight against Abomination.

I vote Emily VanCamp from Revenge for Ms.Marvel.

@brownhornet — oooooo good one!
