"Spider-Gwen: Gwenverse" Makes a Pretty, If Confusing, Debut

Written by Angela Rairden Spider-Gwen is one of my favorite Spider-people, mostly because I’ve always loved Gwen Stacy. Actually, if I’m being completely honest, I’m a big fan of all of Peter Parker’s love interests – I guess he has good taste or something. However, there’s something about the role reversal of the uber smart Gwen becoming Spider-Gwen instead of Peter that really appeals to me. Not to mention, her spider suit is really slick-looking. Therefore, when I picked up Spider-Gwen: Gwenverse #1, I didn’t expect to find it as disappointing as I did. The official Marvel description for this...

Frankie’s Biggest Giveaway Ever!!!

Written By: Angela Rairden Published in August of 2011, Marvel’s Ultimate Fallout #4 would introduce readers to Miles Morales, toted as the “new” Spider-Man, a 13-year-old biracial kid with a Black father and a Puerto Rican mother. Created by writer Brian Michael Bendis and artist Sara Pichelli, Miles initially debuted to mixed reviews. However, after the unequivocal success of 2018’s animated film Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, which featured Miles as its main character, Marvel’s “new” Spider-Man’s popularity shot to astronomical heights, a fact which was further solidified when the character got his own videogame in November of 2020. It became...

My (Mostly) Spoiler-Free Review of “Morbius”, by Angela Rairden

ATTENTION: This blog contains a slight spoiler concerning who the villain of the movie is (which will not be a spoiler to fans of the Morbius comic). Read on at your own risk.   Morbius, which is based on a Marvel character but distributed by Sony, plays out more like a horror film than it does the typical sort of superhero film that we’re used to seeing about Marvel characters. The third film in Sony’s Spider-man Universe (following Venom and Venom: Let There Be Carnage), Morbius features a darker, bloodier theme and the creepy reality of its protagonist needing to...

Women in Comics: Outstanding Female Comic Book Artists Who Are Taking the Industry by Storm, by Angela Rairden

March is Women’s History Month and, whereas last year I wrote a blog featuring three outstanding female comic book writers, this year I wanted to write one that focuses on a few of the industry’s most inspired female artists. The list for this category is long and could easily fill several pages – a fact which I am quite thrilled about, personally. The world of comic books has largely been considered a male-dominated industry in the past; however, this mindset has changed in the past decade or so as more and more women gain an interest in comic books. This...

Who Exactly is Ms Marvel, the Star of Marvel’s Newest Disney+ Show?, by Angela Rairden

On Tuesday, Marvel released the trailer for one of their newest Disney+ shows, Ms Marvel, which is set to release on June 8th. The show is centered around one of Marvel’s newer superheroes, spunky and imaginative Pakistani-American teenager Kamala Khan, who will be played by Iman Vellani. The trailer looks to tell the story of how Kamala becomes known as Ms Marvel. However, before we can talk about that, we need to back track a little and talk about a different Ms Marvel – the one who would later become known as Captain Marvel, Carol Danvers. Carol Danvers as Ms...
