You know what? It is a really good time for awesome fantasy comics about warrior women. Here are some of the ones I’m loving:
- Rat Queens, by Kurtis J. Wiebe and Roc Upchurch
- The Legend of Bold Riley, by Leia Weathington, Marco Aidala, Konstantin Pogorelov, Vanessa Gillings, Kelly McClellan, and Jason Thompson
- Red Sonja, by Gail Simone and Walter Geovanni
- Princeless, by Jeremy Whitley and M. Goodwin
- Princess Ugg, by Ted Naifeh
Do you have others you’re liking?
I recommend every single one of these!
Currently? SEX CRIMINALS if you’re a grown-up. I’m less sure about the best ongoing title for kids. Kate Leth might have some suggestions.
Older stuff? SANDMAN, THE LEAGUE OF EXTRAORDINARY GENTLEMEN vol. 1, Y: LAST MAN if you’re an adult. (SANDMAN has actually just returned for a limited run, and is dizzying in its awesomeness). For kids, I’d recommend BONE by Jeff Smith. For kids and adults both, the complete CALVIN & HOBBES is as important, probably, as HUCKLEBERRY FINN. No, seriously.
It is a good life when Joe Hill says you’re the go-to comics authority.
This is a brag.
I finally sat down and took the time to really REALLY go through Emily Carroll’s Through The Woods today. It is the scariest, most beautiful, most amazing book. Comics make me swoon so hard, sometimes. Emily does horror better than anyone; part fairy tale, part moral lesson, part pure terror. I love everything she makes. I feel lucky that she’s driven to write and draw these stories. I am a fangirl. I want a dozen tattoos of her work.
Hey hey HEY a NEW issue of SEXY CRIMBZ is out today!
Matt and I put a lot of love into it so we hope you enjoy it. And, as always, the letters we received were FANTASTIC.
YOU ARE FANTASTIC.

• The return of superstar artist JAVIER PULIDO!
• Guest-starring Hank Pym!
• She-Hulk, Hellcat and Giant-Man team up to save one of Jen’s officemates…but what else does Hank Pym have at stake, and what isn’t he telling them?
Well looky here :)
PULIDO’S BACK! YESSSSS!!!
I did a variant for Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips’ new book THE FADE OUT. The first issue is brilliant.
Psyyyyched for this comic.
Oh wow good one
- Locke & Key
- American Vampire
- The Strain
But in actuality anything by Junji Ito, anything by Shintaro Kago. I liked the Battle Royale Manga, and Angel’s Border too. Gantz is great. There are just too many good horror manga out there so I tried to keep my list down to 5 different kinds of horror.
V good recommendations!
