Bobby Drake has been in the super hero game longer than most. But while reflecting on what he’s accomplished over the years, he realizes that the legacy he’s built is a few good one-liners and a string of failed relationships. Not only that, but now a younger version of himself has emerged from the timestream and he’s more put together than Bobby ever was: already a world-class hero in his own right, but also totally comfortable in his own skin, complete with a relationship with a handsome Inhuman to boot. In this new ongoing series penned by Sina Grace (Burn the Orphanage, Self-Obsessed) and drawn by Alessandro Vitti (SECRET WARRIORS), Bobby realizes that the time is never or now, and sets out to build a life and legacy he can be proud of…and be the best ICEMAN he can be!

10 FAVORITE COVERS - KATE BISHOP

So, I’m doing a little thing for March (MARCH IS LADY TIMES DONTCHAKNOW?) showing off 10 Favorite/Best covers for some of my favorite superheroines.

I was going to do one everyday for March, but I’ve been super busy and OhHeyLook! it’s already the 20th. But 11 days of ladies is better than none, so here we go.

Anyway, this is one of those projects that is just supposed to be silly fun but then really made me think, because while we’ve seen A LOT of great progress especially in the last few years on gorgeous covers featuring incredible female heroes, it’s kind of shocking when you go through DECADES of comic history how few there are for some of these women.

Case in point, Kate Bishop. Now, Kate is, in fairness, a pretty new character. She has also had the benefit of one of the greatest comic book artists ever doing many of her covers (David Aja) so what she actually has is GREAT but it’s kind of shocking how few there really are. I had trouble even filling out a top 10. :(

Still, what’s here is amazing, and I believe Kate is just getting started. Here’s to dozens more Kate covers… hopefully soon!

Here’s the “criteria” I used for these very unofficial lists.

1. Cover must feature the lady in question, but it doesn’t have to be HER book.

2. The lady must be a “co-star” on the cover or better. So a Team shot is okay if she’s CLEARLY at the head of it/leading it/front and center.

3. Also worth noting that I take into account the ENTIRE cover including how it handles title block and things like that. Sometimes covers with crappy title block will still make it through, but it’s maybe worth knowing that I consider all that stuff.

I think that’s it. Not super scientific. I also make no argument that these are objectively the “best covers ever!” they’re just my favorites, MY bests. Lists are, as always, incredibly subjective.

Here we go. Oh yeah, KATE BISHOP FOREVER.
