I’m probably being unreasonably cranky this morning, but just as Marvel starts reaching a critical mass of putting out books I enjoy, I see their December solicitations…
Here’s the cover for the second issue of Black Widow: Deadly Origin:
Apparently one of Natasha’s lesser known powers is cold-resistant cleavage. And here I just thought she was a super-competent, near-immortal spy and assassin.
Oh well, there’s another Black Widow series coming out, and it’s written by Paul Tobin, and he does books with female characters that I’m not embarrassed to be seen reading.
Black Widow and the Marvel Girls.
Marvel Girls? Not Marvel Women? Okay, post-feminist irony, I can live with that.
Oh dear. It’s the Marvel Divas marketing approach all over again, isn’t it?
