STAFF PICKS :: BATGIRL: ENDGAME #1 :: WEDNESDAY, MARCH 18, 2015

March 16, 2015 By: Rico Renzi Category: DISCUSS, Staff Picks

staff_picks matt_staff_picksMATT’S PICK :: BATGIRL: ENDGAME #1: I can say without reservation this comic book will be very nice to look at! Wicked-awesome good-girl-art French gentleman Bengal not only drew this book, but he also colored it! Please do your eyeballs a favor and pick up this comic! I believe the story should be pretty decent, as well – The Joker (or his minions) are featured within. It should prove to be a win/win for your weekly comic fixation. From what I gather, this is a stand alone book – it should be acceptable for the curious reader. I enjoy the ongoing series (which is also being released this week). There will be no shortage of Batgirl goodness available at Heroes on Wednesday! Lucky us!

STAFF PICKS :: SPIDER-GWEN #1 :: FEBRUARY 25, 2015

February 25, 2015 By: Rico Renzi Category: DISCUSS, Staff Picks

staff_picks heather_staff_picksHEATHER’S PICK :: SPIDER-GWEN #1: There’s been a lot of criticism about the way female characters are treated in comics.  Strong women have gone awry in the wrong hands.  As a female reader, I don’t necessarily only read books with strong female leads created by women, but I do have a tendency to be drawn to those.  A team of all male creators on a female solo book will give me pause.  I say all this as an admission that I wasn’t originally all in on Spider-Gwen from the start like I was with the new Ms. Marvel.  I also don’t have an existing connection to this character like I did when the new She Hulk launched.  At the most, I was cautiously optimistic that given what I know of the creators, Jason Latour, Robbi Rodriguez, and Rico Renzi that this would be a book that I would enjoying reading.

As for my Spider-Man background, I’ve read the early trades of Ultimate Spider-Man and some mini-series books here and there.  The best thing about a book existing in its own universe is limited prior knowledge doesn’t matter.  You don’t have to be aware of which Peter Parker girlfriend, Gwen or Mary Jane, you should like best.  Gwen is no longer about being a love interest.  She is simply the hero.

Spider Gwen is a good example that men can do a wonderful job on female heroes.  It’s refreshing to see a woman drawn with a slight figure that is appropriate in both proportions and age.  Robbi’s art as always is gorgeous.  Jason is bringing a fresh take to this character with original concepts applied to Spider-Man’s rogue gallery.  Rico’s coloring is the cherry on top of this sundae of a book.  Great job, guys! I can’t wait to swing along with you and Gwen.  spider-gwen-1-cover-robbi-rodriguez-109184
