Enjoy!

What I bought – 1 April 2015

EPSON MFP image

Mrs. Rouncewell holds this opinion, because she considers that a family of such antiquity and importance has a right to a ghost. She regards a ghost as one of the privileges of the upper classes; a genteel distinction to which the common people have no claim. (Charles Dickens, from Bleak House)

Read on for the drawings that came about courtesy of the last question/challenge!

The Wrong Side: Spider-Man vs. the X-Men

In this feature, I examine comic book fights that were particularly notable in the wrong side winning (or at least that the fight wasn’t won the “right” way). This really isn’t a big deal, of course, as it doesn’t really matter if the “wrong” person won a fight. But it’s fun to talk about!

If you want to suggest a fight for future inclusion in this feature, drop me a line at bcronin@comicbookresources.com. Don’t suggest a fight in the comments!

For the latest fight, I’ll go with the one I got the third-most requests for, the time Spider-Man clobbered the X-Men in Secret Wars…

Women in Comics NYC Collective International: Women’s History Month Spotlights – Regine L. Sawyer

Since Kelly and I are doing our Female Creators countdown this month, I didn’t have time to do spotlights on female-created comics like I normally like to do in March. Instead, though, I asked the nifty comic book writer Regine L. Sawyer to do some spotlights on fellow members of her Women In Comics NYC Collective. This is the last one! – BC

Regine 1

It just made me think, though, how long could I go before I hit a week where NO new comic book was released that had a cover that was an homage to something? Let’s find out! Here is an archive of all the cover homages featured in the streak so far!
