Marvel has had some success lately with hiring fantastic Female writers as well as artists. Writers like Kelly Sue DeConnick have raised the bar considerably for not only female writers, but males as well. It’s great to see a focus on women artists with this Marvel initiative, and let’s hope there will be something for writers as well. Let’s hope for a time when it isn’t considered an accomplishment when women can break into comics or any other field as well. They should be there on merit and it shouldn’t be any harder for a female artist to succeed than a man. Ok, enough with my soapbox. Read on and enjoy some of the covers below.
