"HE'S LIKE THE YODA OF COMICS" - my friend Liz

Bringing you the very best in comics art and cosplay - 10,000 posts and still going strong! KoC has been linked to/reblogged by the likes of Neil Gaiman, Brian Michael Bendis, Dave Gibbons, Gail Simone, Kelly Sue DeConnick, Kieron Gillen, Mike Deodato Jr, Marcio Takara, Adam Hughes, Paolo Rivera, and Ty Templeton. KoC has also been mentioned on Comics Alliance & The Mary Sue. (I'm not one to brag, though.)

My personal blog is here, FWIW.

Select panels from the second story in Avengers Spotlight #27, an ‘Acts of Vengeance’ tie-in; art by Dwayne Turner and Chris Ivy.

This was my first exposure to Dwayne McDuffie’s writing, and in an eleven page back-up, he featured five female Avengers working together to get the job done. This was long before Cullen Bunn’s Fearless Defenders, or Brian Wood’s X-Men - or, for that matter, the Birds of Prey. It wasn’t written as a novelty, or an exercise in fanservice, it simply demonstrated how capable these characters were. McDuffie included humor (as seen above), action, a nice civilian scene (Monica on a date before she gets beeped), and each of ‘em got their moment to shine.

Again, all of this in eleven pages.

No mean feat, when you think about it.
