The news of a Spider-Gwen series broke Friday at New York Comic-Con, but with a few details missing. Thanks to Marvel's Spider-Verse panel on Sunday we now have confirmation; the book will be ongoing, it will be called Spider-Gwen, and the Edge Of Spider-Verse #2 team of Jason LaTour, Robbi Rodriguez and Rico Renzi will indeed all return.
The same panel also confirmed an ongoing series for another spider-woman, Silk, a recently introduced character who was bitten by the same radioactive spider that gave Peter Parker his powers back in Amazing Fantasy #15. Silk will be written by Supernatural TV writer Robbie Thompson and illustrated by New Warriors cover artist Stacey Lee. And on the subject of books with female leads, earlier in the day at the Women of Marvel panel, Ms. Marvel writer G. Willow Wilson was announced as the new writer on the all-female X-Men series.
With hundreds of panels to choose from at San Diego Comic-Con, the show can be an overwhelming experience — and it’s far too easy to miss a panel you think you might have loved, or to find yourself on the wrong side of the con floor five minutes before a great panel is about to start!
ComicsAlliance has sifted through the schedule to offer up our pick of the best programming at the con. Today we offer our suggested highlights for the final day of the show, Sunday July 27, 2014, when most of the family programming is scheduled. We’ll also let you know where and when you can find ComicsAlliance contributors at the San Diego show.
The Women of Marvel panel is back at San Diego this Sunday morning in room 5AB at 11:15am. Now in its sixth year at Comic-Con (with appearances at other shows like C2E2 and New York Comic Con), the panel has become an institution, shining a light on what it's like to be a woman working in comics and offering advice to women who want to enter the industry.
This year's panel features writer and editor Louise Simonson (Power Pack, X-Factor), colorist Christina Strain (Runaways, Daughters of the Dragon), Marvel Augmented Reality manager and cosplay blogger Judy Stephens, and Marvel project manager Jenny Yeats.
The panel is once again moderated by X-Men editor Jeanine Schaefer. ComicsAlliance spoke to Schaefer to talk about her plans for this year's panel, and what she sees as the big challenges and the big changes for women working in the industry.
I've been to a lot of Marvel Comics conventions panels this year. Only three major conventions -- San Diego's Comic-Con Internation, Toronto's Fan Expo, and the New York Comic Con -- but a lot of Marvel panels
