“It does weird us out when we’re called a feminist comic book,” says McKelvie. “It feels like we’re getting a cookie for what should be the bare acceptable minimum.”
“We read and advocate a lot of feminism,” adds Gillen, “but we wanted the book to look like London and reflect all the people in our lives. That writing women this way is seen as a feminist act is probably more depressing than anything.”
Brian K Vaughn mentions the surge in digital sales on Saga but I feel like that omits the challenge a lot of customers who aren’t men face - they don’t know if their local shop is a safe space. But it makes me glad when a new customer walks in and says they’ve been reading something in digital and wanna switch to physical - that is fantastic.
If you are looking for a quality shop, I’m happy to mine through my resources to get you sorted. You can also check with @bewarethevalkyries. They’re a group of women who work in local comic shops and they want you to have the best experience in a welcoming space.
Are you familiar with the Young Avengers? Is there anything before gillen mckelvie's YA run I should read about Wiccan or America Chavez respectively?
if you’re interested in the Young Avengers I’d suggest maybe starting with the 2005 series because that’s like where it started and the first appearances of the characters but America doesn’t come in until like 2011 in a series called like Victory or Vengeance or Valor or smth with a V, but Gillen’s run seemed pretty self contained to me, like you learn who the characters are and their basic backstory pretty fast tbh
"Maybe we could expect some kind of atonement." - Aidan Gillen asked what's next for Lord Baelish. They are seriously gonna try to redeem LF, aren't they? I'm going to need an unhealthy amount of alcohol to survive this season. Fuck this show! Fuck D&D! Fuck whatever they are smoking when they come up with this shit!
I’ve been saying this for MOOOONTHS. Littlefinger Redemption Arc™ is so happening. Because D&D are diehard creepyshippers.
