Marvel Comics is taking more and more risks with their titles. Due to more female-led comics and people of color heading their own series, diversity has become a priority for the comic book publisher. For too long the queer community has had to take a backseat in comic books to the straight heteronormative characters such as Captain America, Iron Man, Daredevil, and many more. Now is the time to rejoice and celebrate as we begin to see ourselves up-front and center.

The Savage She-Hulk became one of Marvel’s first solo series starring a woman, which lent a hand at showing women as more than just fashion-focused and man-crazed. She can hold her own in a fight, and she’s going to prove it! Read More!
This year I decided to take a HUGE dive into the comic book world. In the past, I had read a few comics here and there, but always felt the stories were a little too confusing. I have put my fears aside and have been enjoying the worlds I’ve discovered. Comixology, an online source for comic books, has just released Comixology Unlimited, and I couldn’t be more excited.
