Make Mine More than Milkshakes: Harassment in Comics

Last weekend, acclaimed comic book editor Heather Antos and other women employed by Marvel were brought into the spotlight on Twitter. Not for their excellent work, but for getting a milkshake. They were out, enjoying a treat in honor of the recently deceased Fabulous Flo, a Marvel legend. Absolutely nothing was wrong with this picture…

Representation and Health 101: It’s a Cold, Cold World

Sometimes comics can get a bit too real. Iceman #3 was released recently and within its pages is dialogue that is strikingly similar to what we have been hearing since the early election results on November 8.
