Kate Leth and Kelly Sue DeConnick’s Carol Corps Memories [Interview]

Untitled-1

 

Last week's Emerald City Comicon kicked off, for me, with the Carol Corps Celebration at the Museum of Flight in Seattle, Washington. Hosted by a bevy of nerdy Captain Marvel enthusiasts and featuring some of the finest cosplay I saw all weekend, proceeds from tickets and exclusive merchandise went  to benefit the Girls Leadership Institute. It's a rare thing for fans and creators to celebrate a superhero character in such a thematically specific and highly interactive way -- Carol Danvers is a military pilot, after all, and the new Ms. Marvel is herself a member of the Carol Corps -- and a woman superhero at that. But the event was an absolutely joyful experience that spoke to the good work being done in these comics and readers' enthusiasm for great women heroes (both fictional and real-life).

‘These Have To Be Stories About People We Care About’: Kelly Sue DeConnick On Dark Horse’s New ‘Prometheus’ Comics

Dark Horse Comics Prometheus
Dark Horse Comics

Dark Horse Comics is bringing back its Alien comics franchise in a big way this year with a set of four mini-series set immediately after the most recent movie, Prometheus. The company has revealed the names of the four series writers: Aliens will be by Chris Roberson, Predators will be written by Joshua Williamson, Paul Tobin will write the Prometheus series, and Aliens vs. Predator will be by Christopher Sebela.

The company's been teasing a "fifth writer" on the franchise, and she's actually holding down the position you might call head writer: Kelly Sue DeConnick. DeConnick will be writing a double-sized "wrap-up" issue to close out the initial run of books, and she oversaw a lot of the goings-on in the writers' room as the series were being put together. We chatted with her by phone to find out how that experience was different from other comics writing jobs, and just what readers can expect from the first full-on Aliens/Predator/Prometheus comics crossover.

Bizarro Back Issues: Captain Marvel Battles Sir Marvel! (1946)

Captain Marvel Meets Sir Marvel (1946)

If you've been reading ComicsAlliance for a while, then you've probably noticed that when it comes to back issues, I tend to gravitate towards the ones where really weird stuff happens. Power Man and Iron Fist battling the Daleks, Godzilla traveling through time to battle dinosaurs, an entire robot Smallville being constructed specifically to fool aliens into nuking the wrong city -- that's all stuff that's just inherently bizarre, and I love them. But sometimes, it's not the events that are strange, it's how they're presented.

Take, for instance, what the fine folks at Fawcett did back in 1946, when they took a story that, by itself, was nothing special, and then skewed it just far enough that it's one of the most mind-boggling comics I've ever read.

Shoes of Prey: Comics Alliance Designs Superhero Footwear Based on Wonder Woman, Captain Marvel, Batwoman and More

Untitled-142

Fashion brand Shoes of Prey used its customizable design website to style some superhero-inspired heels and flats as examples of footwear that customers can tweak and purchase for themselves with the Shoes of Prey 3D Designer, which gives the wearer selection of colors, materials, and alter various detailing parameters such as heel height, toe and heel detailing.. Each pair of shoes is handmade to fit the customer's chosen aesthetics and run at least $100 per pair.

As a fan of both Shoes of Prey and comics, customer Mandy Kerr designed some heels and flats inspired by Batman, Iron Man, and more (seen in the grahguc below). Inspired by Kerr's excellent Robin-inspired oxfords, I utilized the Shoes of Prey 3D Designer to create a few of my own shoe designs, including flats and platformed wedges inspired by Wonder Woman, Captain Marvel, Batwoman, and more.

Emerald City Comicon And We Love Fine Team-Up For Exclusive Apparel With Marvel, My Little Pony, Adventure Time And More [Fashion]

Untitled-1

Offering a notably comics-specific, distinctly warm and fuzzy vibe that's not to be found at some of the massive and monstrous, comics-suppressing conventions here in the US, Seattle's Emerald City Comicon feels a lot more like comics summer camp than it does a media trade show. Comics professionals from all dimensions of the industry -- creators, publishers, press and beyond -- all look forward to ECCC for the same reasons attendees do; it's a great weekend to meet your readers, meet your favorite authors, and celebrate the medium we all love.

Also, buying cool stuff.

That same summer camp quality that makes ECCC worth attending may also make it worth commemorating, which is why it makes sense that geek fashion haus We Love Fine has made its first ever partnership with a convention with a limited edition line of t-shirts. Featuring Marvel characters like Captain Marvel, Hawkeye and Deadpool as well as other We Love Fine licenses like My Little Pony, Transformers, ElfQuest, Bravest Warriors, Adventure Time and Bee & Puppycat alongside Seattle iconography (very cute), the ECCCxWLF collection will be available exclusively for $25 each at the Seattle show from March 27-30.

You can inspect the designs below. More info at the show's merchandise page.

David Lopez Shows Carol Danvers In Her Heroic and Feline Glory In ‘Captain Marvel’ #1 Covers [Art]

Captain Marvel #1

Since it's launch in 2012, Kelly Sue DeConnick's run on Captain Marvel has engendered a fan base unlike any other in comics. The Carol Corps does anything and everything it can to promote the series they love, and that passion shows up everywhere from comic shops to Tumblr to convention floors across the country. Simply put, they are well organized, and they come correct.

So when Marvel announced that the title would be relaunched with a new Captain Marvel #1, as part of the publisher's All-New Marvel NOW initiative, it meant the series' fans would have one more opportunity to spread the love for a number one issue. And helping to further the excitement is the presence David Lopez, who'll be taking over as series artist while also providing cover art for issue #1.

Today Marvel has provided ComicsAlliance with the first look at Lopez's two covers for the issue, both the standard and the animal variant featuring Carol Danvers as a cat, which somehow feels like an appropriate spirit animal for the popular Avenger.

Marvel Unveils New Ms. Marvel: A Muslim Pakistani-American Teenager

Ms. Marvel G Willow Wilson Marvel Now Muslim Teen

The New York Times broke news today of a new solo superhero title launching from Marvel early next year -- and this one comes as a welcome change of pace for readers who want to see more diversity in their super-books.

Bizarro Back Issues: Captain Marvel In The Horror Hunt! (1953)

Captain Marvel Adventures 143

After a long month of obsessing over various spooks, ghouls and haints, it is finally Halloweek -- which basically means that next Monday, I start thinking about Christmas. But before I do, I wanted to make sure that I gave you a glimpse of the ultimate in harrowing horror. A story designed to chill you to the bone, to bring the fear of the dark back into your life, to remind you that there are things out there, unknowable and unstoppable, waiting for you. It would have to be a story with not one monster, not two, not even three, but five unstoppable terrors that could fill even the world's mightiest mortal with fear.

And, you know, it would also be nice if at least one of those monsters got punched in the face with a windmill while we were at it. Fortunately, I found one that fits the bill, just in time for our final trick-or-treat!
