GUESS WHAT IVE GOT FREE TICKETS TO TONIGHT
New or returning to Marvel comics, or have a friend who is? Here’s the Cliffs Notes on Marvel’s female-led solo titles and 15 lead female characters RIGHT NOW in August 2014:
1. Captain Marvel
WHO SHE IS: Carol Danvers is an Avenger, pilot, and all-around…
I got a hell of a lot more running through me than demon juice. [x]
srsly tho, it’s probably one of the best comics to come out in the past 5 years, ngl. every time I sell it to customers I tell them that it’s similar to romeo and juliet but it takes place in space~*~
- woman of colour major characters!!!!
- female sexuality is wonderful and embraced and acknowledged!!!!
- and so are the “gross” things about females i.e. periods and shitting and childbirth are also wonderful and normal and acknowledged
- LBGTQ+ representation ;-; bless
- FUCKING FIONA STAPLES MAN her art blows me away no matter what she draws, everything she touches turns to gold i am not fucking kidding you right now
- also staples draws actual diverse bodies with curves and rolls and skinny legs and big booties and gorgeous gorgeous !!!!diverse!!!! characters! makes me weep.
- the last page of every issue will make you cry ok
basically if you are considering reading it, save yourself the time and stress and just buy every trade that is available for it because you will not be able to stop once you start
Gal Gadot's Wonder Woman in Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016)
Nicki Minaj shining a light on the differences on acceptable sexuality from white women and black women.
for those saying “oh maybe they just don’t want to announce arianne yet” or “maybe they’re still casting for her”
YOU’RE NOT FOCUSING ON THE PROBLEM HERE
TRYSTANE IS DESCRIBED AS THE HEIR TO DORNE
THIS IS A THING THAT’S HAPPENING
Trystane Martell is Prince Doran’s son and heir to Dorne.
THAT IS THE FUCKING OFFICIAL DESCRIPTION FROM HBO
IN THE BOOKS ARIANNE IS THE HEIR TO SUNSPEAR
IN THE BOOKS ARIANNE IS DORAN’S FIRSTBORN
BUT IT’S TRYSTANE WHO HBO SAYS IS THE HEIR
D&D LITERALLY REPLACED A MAJOR POV CHARACTER WITH A REALLY REALLY REALLY SECONDARY CHARACTER WHO DOESN’T EVEN HAVE LINES IN THE BOOKS
NOT ONLY THAT A MAJOR POV CHARACTER WHO IS ONE OF THE FEW WOC WITH AGENCY IN THE SERIES
“Khal Drogo could be cruel as well, and there was never a man more dangerous. She had come to love him all the same.”
I wanted to have a go at a female vashoth/qunari inquisitor.
For those who want to get into comics and don’t know where to start and/or are looking for new things to read! Most of these recommendations feature women, LGBTQ+ and/or people of colour in leading roles because women, LGBTQ+ and POCs are not featured enough in comics.
NEW TITLES ADDED:
Armani Privé Fall - Winter 2014/15 backstage
Her hair was a mane of jet-black ringlets that fell to the small of her back, and around her brow was a band of copper suns. Where the Sand Snakes were tall, Arianne took after her mother, who stood but five foot two. She is still a little thing, the captain thought. Yet beneath her jewelled girdle and loose layers of flowing purple silk and yellow samite she had a woman’s body, lush and roundly curved.
