This is not the first time Marvel has made a female led series, or had an all-female team. Just last year Storm led an all-female line up of X-Men; and other super heroines have had their own comics like Spider-Girl and X-23. However, this is the first time in history that female led comics are SUCCEEDING. Marvel’s Spider-Gwen series, based on an alternate universe Spider-Man where Gwen Stacy got bitten by the radioactive spider and not Peter Parker, is a huge hit! This new found success is attributed to digital comics and the growing number of female comic book readers. In fact, women are the fastest growing consumers of comics currently!

With characters like Black Widow, Captain Marvel, and Wonder Woman soon to have their own movies a move like this only makes since. Sometimes the best man to save the world is a woman!

Hey Mikey!

WHO AM I? That’s probably what you’re thinking? It’s simple I’m this generation’s “Dear Abby!” I was raised in the Fourth Ward of Atlanta, educated in the School of Hard Knocks, and rescued by the concrete and steel of New York City. Life at best will always be bittersweet. The sooner you accept that, the better off you’ll be. I’d prefer to be on your sweeter side. Everyone needs a listening ear, extra shoulder, and open arms when life gets rough. I’m your new best friend, whe it all goes south remember I’m a mouse click or tweet away. Hang in there kids, you’re gonna love kickin’ it with me!!! -MIKEY
