Mike Del Mundo Archives - Comics Should Be Good! @ Comic Book Resources
I’m pretty slammed and distracted by my new Kickstarter (laumched yesterday) so what better post to write than another She Has No Head!/Random Thoughts mash-up (TM Chad Nevett!), especially since I haven’t done one since 2011 – what have I been doing with my time?! Also, I’m sure you noticed, but in case not, Chad has been back on CSBG of late, stirring things up, so make sure to check out all that.
Random She Thought: It’s She Has Random (Largely Narcissistic) Thoughts Time! Get Excited!
Link Thought: Kickstarter for the new Storykiller novel i.e. non-comics-y stuff, 1979 Semi-Finalist for blog-y comics stuff, 79semifinalist for twitter-y comics stuff, Kelly Thompson on CBR for review-y comics stuff.
Random She Thought: Show of hands, who is surprised that Superman/Batman got pushed? That’s right, NOBODY. I mean, I think this is a good thing in that I didn’t think there was any chance we were going to get an actual good movie in 2015…but given how much I hated MoS I guess I don’t think we’re getting a good movie anyway and so this just looks like more disorganized “we have no idea what we’re doing” BS. Still, 2015 was ALWAYS ambitious.
I’ll be doing a post later this month about 10 specific “NEW” books to buy in 2014 where I talk in detail about some new series coming out that I’m excited to read in 2014 (and you should be too). However, I thought I’d do a list of more generally “comics related” things I’m excited about as well since there are a good number of them this year.
There’s a lot of Marvel on this list, guys. But what I can I say? I like the cut of their jib these days aka they’re dominating like a BOSS.
Well, world domination may be a bit excessive, but all in all the news coming out of NYCC (and some that came before NYCC) was incredibly positive. Hard to argue with such a killer week of news. Let’s start with some cool stuff that actually happened last week, prior to NYCC.
EDIT: Just to be clear, since people are going nuts in the comments. This post is SPECIFICALLY about the news that was announced this weekend at NYCC 2013. While I talk generally about Marvel and DC and their approach to “women in comics” the catalyst is all the NEW THINGS that were announced this weekend. To summarize: yes, DC has some lady-led comics right now (more in fact than Marvel) but short of the Stephanie Brown announcement they made ZERO exciting moves on the “women in comics” front this weekend. So, yeah, that’s gonna skew what I’m talking about. Try not to cry.
