→ Agent Carter’s Showrunners, Tara Butters And Michele Fazekas, are the new writers on Captain Marvel

I’ve [already said] that I worry that whomever took over Captain Marvel would have to deal with tons of “Kelly Sue never would have done it that way.” I hope that people, after seeing how amazing Agent Carter was, will give Butters and Fazekas a chance.

→ Kelly Sue DeConnick Leaves Captain Marvel

There was a gasp in the room when she announced this.

Relatedly, I fear for the person who takes over the book. I think “he / she is no Kelly Sue” will be a common refrain, regardless of how good the book is.

→ iFanboy Update: After 13 Years It’s Finally Time To Scale Back

One of my favorite comic book websites and podcasts, iFanboy is scaling back to be just a podcast. I’m sure I will miss the site’s great, daily content, but I m happy that they are going to continue to do their weekly show. Good luck to Connor, Josh and Paul going forward, and thanks to you (and Ron) for the years of great entertainment.

→ Comic Industry Responds To Affleck As Batman

These are great.1 I especially like J. Torres:

I can think of worse things plaguing this planet than Ben Affleck as Batman. Jennifer Garner as Wonder Woman, for example.

→ Kelly Sue DeConnick’s Tips for Writing Comics

I am posting this for two reasons:

  1. Because this is a list of really good tips for aspiring comic writers.
