This April Brian Wood and Olivier Coipel launch a new X-Men title with a roster of Jubilee, Kitty Pryde, Psylocke, Rachel Grey, Rogue and Storm. That the team is all-female is unusual for a series that isn't defined along gender-lines. What makes the roster extraordinary is that it's an all-star line-up. These are first draft X-Men, and the book could easily have added more top picks -- Dazzler, Emma Frost, Jean Grey, Magik, Mystique -- and still been all-female.
It's hard to think of any other superhero team with such a strong bench of women, and it's especially hard to think of another team where so many female characters rose to prominence within the team itself. What these characters have in common is no mystery; they were all written by Chris Claremont, the man whose name is synonymous with "strong female characters."

While Jason Aaron and Adam Kubert explored Wolverine's ceaseless adventuring aptly in their "A Day in the Life" comic storyline last summer, nerdcore rockers Kirby Krackle have taken surmising the schedule of Ma
As most everyone who reads comics knows at this point, Marvel's "Siege" event ended this week with a book that a number of fans have found to be a little lackluster. If you'd like to see something that makes it look like fried storytelling gold, however, I'd suggest the epilogue to "Siege" found in "The Sentry: Fallen Sun," because brother, that thing is rough.
The ladies of Marvel have never been more kawaii than the Kotobukiya imported Marvel Bishoujo statues! Except maybe for "X-Men: The Manga." And "X-Men: Misfits." And OK, a bunch of times, shut up. But it's the first time
I wasted a lot of energy in my rocking and rolling teenage years trying to convince people that "emo" wasn't a thing, but you know what? I'm too tired to care anymore, so let's just marginalize a style of rock and roll I enjoyed at 16 and agree that sad things are cute, eh?
