BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND; ‘SPIDER-GWEN’ GETS ONGOING SERIES IN FEBRUARY [NYCC]
By Matt D. Wilson
It looks like Marvel is striking while the iron is hot.
September’s Edge of Spider-Verse #2, which featured an alternate-universe Gwen Stacy who bore the mantle of Spider-Woman and was also in a super-cool girl band, was such a massive success that the publisher has announced an ongoing series starring the character will launch in February. The creative team behind the Edge of Spider-Verse issue, writer Jason Latour, artist Robbi Rodriguez, and colorist Rico Renzi, are all expected to return.
The announcement came Friday morning at New York Comic-Con in a closed-door, retailers-only panel, which reportedly also teased a January event with the familiar words “No More Mutants”, and included retailer questions about the future fates of Thor, Wolverine and the Fantastic Four.

So we ought to tell Marvel when we don't read something because the author is a hard limit, yeah? "Hello ms/mr Marvel, it's not that we don't like Sam Wilson, in fact we adore Sam Wilson, you just coupled him with Rick Remender and... well, long story short my money'll come back when Remender isn't writing cap."?

Many of us do! Via Marvel’s letter page, or by speaking to Marvel representatives at cons, or by tagging tweets and posts appropriately. 

And yes, it is sad that Sam as Cap will probably be torpedoed by Remender’s presence in the book; the sales numbers were already plummeting by the time that tidbit came out. Despite the very public way in which fans objected to Remender and the very public way in which Remender and others who support him reacted to that objection, Marvel may not see the difference between “hate this book because of the writer” and “hate this book because Steve’s not Cap”. 

Unfortunately I think it’s also true that despite the massive influx into Marvel of really good, intellectual, and inclusive writers — Kelly Sue DeConnick, G. Willow Wilson, Matt Fraction, to name a few — the editorial and management staff at Marvel seem to be very much still an Old Boys Network. (Tip for Marvel: if you’re reading this and you think you aren’t an Old Boys Network, you should be aware you’re not coming off in the best light.) I think it’s finally starting to let up, but artists and writers are still very much being judged on their gender and race rather than their skill and talent in the industry at large. Certainly Liefeld and Remender are proof they are not being judged on their professionalism. In any other field, what both of them have said in public would get them fired at the least, and probably make them unemployable. And yet they both have jobs, presumably because the consequences of their actions were either not visible or ignored by their editors. 

So yes, I think people should absolutely take every opportunity they can to say “I am reading Ms. Marvel because I support the presence of women of colour in comics” and “I am not reading anything by Rick Remender because I do not support douchebags in comics” and whatever else they support or do not support on political/social grounds.

It’s worth noting that if you want to read/support Sam as Cap without reading a book written by Remender, there’s always;

Starting in November, it’s a relaunch of Al Ewing’s Mighty Avengers which has been really great so far. His take on Sam is enjoyable, writing him as equal parts capable badass and loveable nerd (there’s a great bit where he insists on calling himself ‘S.H.I.E.L.D. Super-Agent Falcon’ every time he reports to Nick Fury) so I think he’s going to do a great job with Sam as Cap. The book also features;

- A cast of kickass women in varied roles (Monica Rambeau, yay!)

- A cast of kickass PoC in varied roles (Luke Cage, yay!)

- A good mix of superheroic melodrama and humour.

- …granted, it also has Greg Land on art. Which… yeah. But he’s stepping down for the relaunch, and Luke Ross will be the main artist on the series for the new run.

So if you want to read a book featuring Sam Wilson as Captain America, but don’t want to buy one written by a guy who’ll tell you to ‘drown yourself in hobo piss’ if you disagree with him, then Captain America and the Mighty Avengers might be worth a look!

Ohhhh yay! That’s exciting, and I hadn’t heard about it. Mighty Avengers has been kind of variable in quality for me — I’m not that interested in what someone’s dad was doing in the 70s — but I’ll put up with less than spectacular writing for Sam!Cap. :D

Hawkeye vs. Deadpool #0

I really appreciated all the little nods to Clint’s deafness in this issue. I’m glad other writers are acknowledging it and it’s not just a temporary thing in Fraction’s run. I also enjoy the fact that Wade apparently knows sign language.

Quick tip for those who may not know, Kamala Khan’s first name is pronounced ‘Kam-La’ as opposed to ‘Ka-Ma-La’
Might not seem like a big deal, but she’s the first (and thus far only) South Asian superhero to have her own title, and the closest thing some of us have to representation in comics, so I really hope people get her name right :)
Anyway, can’t wait for issue #7!

Useful information.

I thought girls didn’t like Super Heroes.

You thought what? 

Also, bless five-year-old girls who can confidently pronounce the words ‘cybernetic enhancements’ because they’re so interested in superhero adventures that they saw no obstacle to learning anything at all to understand them better.

And can do it wearing a pink flower headband, if they feel like it.

GIRLS LIKE SUPERHEROES. GIRLS LIKE COMICS. GIRLS HAVE LIKED THESE THINGS FOR AS LONG AS THEY HAVE BEEN AVAILABLE TO LIKE.

(behold, three girls and one boy avidly reading new comic books in New York City, 1947, photographed by Ruth Orkin)

What girls don’t like is when they’re patronised, and herded towards titles designed according to what grown men think girls are supposed to like, and ignored with regard to titles that those men assume are just for boys and men. What girls don’t like is not being allowed to choose for themselves what they like. 

This is not a new concept. This is noted in Chaucer. What every woman most desires is to choose her own way.

Maybe people wouldn’t be so annoyed with Milo Manara’s “Spider-Woman” #1 variant cover if every series got overtly sexy variant covers—not just the ones with female leads.

This is a world I want to live in.

YUP.
