One benefit to the Avengers movie (more than Iron Man 2 did for it) was the big push it gave (seemingly) to the Black Widow in the comics line. It seems I see her in almost EVERY Marvel book these days!
Also from the NextWave series, the marvelous Elsa Bloodstone.
Hurricane Sandy wasn’t all bad to me. My company wanted me to work so they put us up in a hotel in PA for three days. During that time, I found a Bargain Bookstore that had a TON of Marvel Graphic Novels at like half price or better. I picked up two volumes of the NextWave series from Warren Ellis and Stuart Immonen and starring the one-time Captain Marvel, Monica Rambeau.

I know, so many reblogs, but I’m happy. LOL

For the record, I was a fan of Carol Danvers before she got cool.

Picked up the new Previews finally yesterday and cannot say how happy I am about this on about a million levels from how it was portrayed to the fact it’s on ongoing to the new costume to the fact it seems they are going to finally recognize herself as one of the power houses of the Marvel U to Kelly Sue DeConnick doing the writing.
Wheeeeeeeeeeeeee all around!
I think I’ve given up on Black Widow ever getting an ongoing solo title. Was hoping either the Iron Man 2 movie or The Avengers might make that happen, but now I’m doubting it. Is X-23 the only solo female lead that Marvel has right now?
I hope all the hints they’re dropping in Fear Itself:The Fearless (essentially a fantastic Valkyrie solo miniseries) about this being Val’s final swansong are just swerves and she’ll still be sticking around a long time. The Marvel U needs her.
Is it nitpicky of me to be bothered that the sash is knotted on the wrong hip?
