Five Thirty Eight Digs Into Demographics Of Superheroes, Finds They’re Still Overwhelmingly Men

Untitled-1

Here's the good news: According to some recent research by FiveThirtyEight.com, the website that applies data to just about everything -- most notably, US elections -- the ratio of female to male characters in mainstream superhero comics is improving, and more LGBT characters are showing up in Marvel and DC's pages.

That said, the numbers still aren't great. "Female characters make up only 30.9 percent of the DC universe and 30.6 percent of the Marvel universe," the site's report states. In a world where women are 51 percent of all people, that's not so representative.

Get Ready For Civil War All Over Again In 2015… And Ultron Vs. Zombies?

CivilWar2015Main

Civil War was the biggest superhero comic event of 2006, and Marvel is hoping that it can still make an impact in 2015, not even a decade later. The publisher released a teaser image for some kind of revival of the event in summer of 2015; in it, Captain America and a very 2006-looking Iron Man pull Spider-Man, in his spider armor costume, to their respective sides.

5 Ways ‘Southern Bastards’ Absolutely Nails The Modern South

Screen Shot 2014-10-04 at 1.47.40 PM

Image Comics' Southern Bastards has a lot to offer people who enjoy a good crime/revenge comic like I do. There's palpable tension, a sense of some serious wrongs that need to be righted, and people fighting each other with bats (one of them the remnant of a tree that grew out of a grave and was struck by lightning) in the middle of the street.

But, you might say, there are lots of crime comics out there. Heck, Jason Aaron, the writer of Southern Bastards, has penned a good many himself. Scalped and his Punisher run, to name a couple. Southern Bastards is something really special, though, because of the way Aaron and artist Jason Latour embrace its setting so deeply and wholeheartedly.

Oni Brings ‘Rick And Morty’ To The Universe Of Comics [NYCC]

RickandMortycomic

The Adult Swim animated series Rick And Morty is about as well-suited for a comics adaptation as anything on TV. It's got a psychopathic mad scientist, inter-dimensional adventures, and lots of teenage growing pains.

That's likely why the Justin Roiland and Dan Harmon-created series will be coming to Oni Press next year in a new comic written by Costume Quest: Invasion of the Candy Snatchers scribe Zac Gorman.

In terms of star power, Comic-Con International in San Diego may still have the edge, but as far as attendance is concerned, there's a new king of the mountain in comic conventions.

ReedPOP, the organizers behind New York Comic Con, sold passes to 151,000 people for the event at the Javits Center this weekend, making it bigger than San Diego's historic convention by about 21,000 attendees. San Diego's attendance has been capped at 130,000 for years now.

Back By Popular Demand; ‘Spider-Gwen’ Gets Ongoing Series In February [NYCC]

SpiderGwen

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.

Boom’s ‘Sleepy Hollow’ Comic Goes For Bigger-Than-TV Action [Preview]

SleepyHollowCoverMain

Fox's action/horror/comedy Sleepy Hollow is one of the best shows on TV right now, and it deserves a tie-in comic that captures its oddball charm. Luckily, it looks like that's what fans are getting in the new Boom Studios series by writer Marguerite Bennett and artist Jorge Coelho.

The team isn't just shoehorning TV plots into comics form, though. While Bennett and Coelho do a really nice job of capturing the voices and looks of lead characters Ichabod Crane and Lt. Abbie Mills, the team also adds in some big action that you can't really pull off on a TV budget. Check out the first six pages here at ComicsAlliance.
