We Need A New Captain Britain And It Needs To Be Faiza Hussain

Faiza-Header

If you’ve been following the news, you may be aware that the United Kingdom is currently teetering on the brink, and every hour seems to bring some new catastrophe straight out of the most biting satire. Throughout Europe and across the world, Britain is currently seen as an embarrassment and a cautionary tale about what happens when fear and prejudice is used to change the future of a nation.

That’s why it’s time for a new Captain Britain, one who embodies the most positive qualities of our country, who can serve as an example of what the country is truly about. We need a Captain Britain who is of the people, who represents the very best of the nation that I call home. We need Faiza Hussain.

CA_DamnedBand1

Earlier this month, Dark Horse released the first issue of This Damned Band, a new series from writer Paul Cornell and artist Tony Parker that tells the story of the seminal early '70s band Motherfather --- a group that attempts to enjoy the trappings of rock stardom, but at the same time become mixed up in forces far beyond their control.

Marvel’s Faiza Hussain: ‘Better’ as Normal

newdefenders

Whatever Marvel is doing with Secret Wars, one established fact stands out to me: they’re bringing back British, hijabi superhero, and personal favorite, Faiza Hussain, to the printed page. My heart swells.

Faiza Hussain debuted in 2008, in Paul Cornell and Leonard Kirk’s Captain Britain & MI:13. I adored this book, and I immediately adored her; Faiza’s debut was both the introduction of a vibrant, individual human character and a tight superhero origin story. She's a necessary part of the Marvel Universe, not just because she represents modern Britain, but because there was already a seat laid for her at the Round Table.

‘Wolverine #1′ Aims For Shock, But Misses [Review]

Wolverine #1

 

The very idea of All-New Marvel NOW! is to try something new with the company’s legion of characters, and I can imagine that Wolverine presented one of the biggest challenges. People like Wolverine a lot, so putting him in an altogether different situation than readers are used to seeing, or somehow altering the DNA of the character, is risky. There’s a reason DC basically left Batman untouched in the transition to The New 52, after all.

To its credit, the first issue of the new Wolverine series by writer Paul Cornell, penciler Ryan Stegman, inker Mark Morales and colorist David Curiel, takes both of those huge risks. They take Wolverine out of readers’ comfort zone. Unfortunately, it doesn’t really work.

‘I’ve Got A Little More Dark Going On': Ryan Stegman Talks Drawing Wolverine [Interview]

Wolverine Ryan Stegman

In continuing the publisher's recent trend of restarting titles at #1 for its All-New Marvel NOW initiative, last week Marvel revealed plans for Wolverine #1. Beginning in February, the new Wolverine series will continue to feature writer Paul Cornell, but now he'll be collaborating with new series artist Ryan Stegman.

Perhaps best known for his recent work on Superior Spider-Man, launching that title with Dan Slott, Stegman will come on board as the regular Wolverine artist following the conclusion of "Killable," the series' current major storyline. Stegman brings a style that stands in contrast to the work Alan Davis and Mark Farmer are currently producing on the title, but his grittier, thicker line work also seems well-suited for the title.

ComicsAlliance spoke to Stegman about the challenge of drawing one of Marvel's most popular characters, working with Cornell, designing a new supporting cast, and the Wolverine artists that inspire him.

Among the many Marvel Comics characters who are part of the publisher's Marvel NOW relaunch initiative is of course Wolverine. Very arguably Marvel's flagship character, the X-Man also known as Logan appears in seemingly all areas of the publisher's line, from X-Men to Avengers to Ultimate Comics and even the mature readers MAX label, and has himself enjoyed a solo title in continuous (albeit occasionally renumbered) publication since the late 1980s...
