Captain Marvel comics to read if you’re excited about the movie

TwitterFacebook

Captain Marvel is a complicated superhero with a complicated backstory. Luckily there are a bunch of great comics to help you figure it out.

Captain Marvel is gearing up to be one of the biggest superhero movies of the year, sending the Marvel cinematic universe into the distant past (the ’90s) to give us the story of Carol Danvers, a.k.a. Captain Marvel.

Captain Marvel was first introduced to the world in 1967, created by Stan Lee and Gene Colan, which means there’s been a whole lot of Captain Marvel comic books over the years. Captain Marvel has gone through a handful of iterations over the decades, with multiple people carrying the Captain Marvel (the most recent being Danvers). Read more…

Comics Blast White House Correspondents’ Association for Caving to Trump: ‘Sad Day for Jokes’

Michelle Wolf did not mince words when the White House Correspondents’ Association announced on Monday that they would not be hiring a comedian to roast the president and the press at its annual dinner in Washington next year.

As the most recent comic to host the White House Correspondents’ Dinner, it would be hard for Wolf not to take the move personally. It was her jokes about how Sarah Huckabee Sanders “burns facts” to make that perfect “smoky eye” along with her remark to the press secretary, “I love you as Aunt Lydia in The Handmaid’s Tale,” that prompted weeks of faux-outrage from Trumpland.

Now, in an apparent attempt to make the dinner more “boring,” the WHCA has tapped Alexander Hamilton biographer and historian Ron Chernow to follow in the footsteps of Wolf, Seth Meyers, Stephen Colbert and others. Comedians are not amused.

How Marvel and Corporate Comics Are Failing the ‘Vulnerable’ Creators Behind Their Superheroes

Last month, novelist Chuck Wendig—the bestselling author of the licensed Star Wars novel Aftermath and its sequels—stood before a crowd at New York Comic Con and announced he’d be working on Shadow of Vader, a miniseries for Marvel Comics. A week later, on October 12th, Wendig made another announcement: he’d been fired. The reason given, Wendig wrote on his personal website, was “the negativity and vulgarity that my tweets bring. Seriously, that’s what Mark, the editor said…It was too much politics, too much vulgarity, too much negativity on my part.”

Wendig, an openly progressive and occasionally combative presence on social media, had been the target of a long-running harassment campaign* fueled by reactionaries in the Star Wars fan community. His books were review bombed; he dealt with SWATing attempts, harassment from bots and sock-puppet accounts, and creepy personal messages. “People have been trying to get me fired from Star Wars since Aftermath came out. Since before it came out, actually,” he told The Daily Beast in an email. “[Lucas Film Licensing] has always had my back, and with Marvel, my politics never came up. And I haven’t been shy about those politics—or about being vulgar, which has been part of my voice so to speak since my first novel, Blackbirds, which is a very vulgar book…I never received any warnings about my behavior.”

While segments of Star Wars fandom continue to try and advocate for a spin-off film featuring Obi-Wan Kenobi between the events of Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope, comics-based movie fans were given one hell of a surprise this week when we learned that actor Ewan McGregor would be jumping into superhero film for the first time — specifically, into the DC Universe.

McGregor will join the cast of the upcoming Birds of Prey as Roman Sionis/Black Mask in the film, to be directed by Cathy…
