Welcome to the latest episode of ComicsAlliance Presents “Kate or Die,” a series of exclusive comic strips created by one of our longtime favorite webcomics cartoonists, Kate Leth! In this episode, Kate takes looks at the brave and glorious future to come in 2014 and suggests some resolutions for the dedicated comic book fan.
Marvel released Issue #2’s cover! I had a lot of fun with this one. I wanted to ensure that the only time you ever see her face is in the center panel. Kind of gives you a hint at what a Kevin Wada interior page would look like. As in no perspective and flat EVERYTHING.
So Hawkeye is probably one of the greatest monthlies in print at the moment. It’s a perfect version of itself, a perfect fusion of artists and writer, of Hawkeye and Hawkguy, of pizza and dog. Read it. Read it all. Let Hawkeye, starring Hawkeye (Kate Bishop) and Hawkeye (Clint Barton) and Pizza Dog (Arrow Lucky), become your monthly present to yourself.
Because every month could use some sprucing up. Even a Mighty Month of Marvel. Spruce it up by VOTING for the Marvel character you love best.
Kelly Sue DeConnick quickly became one of my biggest heroes of 2013. I met her at NYCC and talked to her about the Valkyries, and she was the warmest and most enthusiastic person. Also, really fucking metal. I came home raving about her, sat down and immediately read her entire run of Captain Marvel, in between losing it over Pretty Deadly. I’m late to the game on Carol Corps, but I do love it. Also, my friend and great accent-haver Jamie McKelvie designed her (and the new Ms Marvel’s!) costume, so this is just an ode to people I like.
Bigger version is HERE! Print out, put up around your home! Whatever!
