Secret Empire #2 (of 10) — Writer: Nick Spencer; Art/Colors: Andrea Sorrentino with Rod Reis Luke Cage #1 — Writer: David F.

There’ve always been exceptions to the comics-are-for-guys meme — the Chris Claremont X-Men of the ’70s and ’80s, New Teen Titans in the ’80s, Sandman and a lot of Vertigo titles in the ’90s, and big chunks of the manga boom in the ’00s — but in the last two years we’ve seen both a new commitment by the big comics companies to attract a more diverse audience, and an explosion of female creators, both writers … Continue reading
