Comic Heroes - - News - Jen Neal, Ed­i­tor

In the cur­rent cli­mate, comics of­fer us the per­fect es­cape from the mad­den­ing world we live in. With block­buster movies hit­ting our screens it is an easy world to dip into or fully im­merse your­self in. This is­sue, we’re tak­ing a leaf out of DC’s book and con­cen­trat­ing our ef­forts on Women In Comics, it’s a move­ment that sees writ­ers and artists at­tempt­ing to get a fairer spread of rep­re­sen­ta­tion into our mar­ket­place. You can read about Won­der Woman’s be­gin­nings and the strug­gles of fe­male char­ac­ters and cre­ators alike over on page 34. What’s more, John Romita Sr talks about the ori­gins of Gwen Stacy and MJ and how they both stand the test of time in Spi­der-Man’s life. Chris Clare­mont talks about the power of women, and his ef­forts to rep­re­sent true women in his work, as well as talk­ing to us about his suc­cesses as a whole. Else­where we dis­cuss the webs of Spi­der-Man’s ul­ti­mate legacy, and how it came to be; Brian Michael Bendis talks about his lat­est projects; as al­ways we look into the cur­rent sta­tus of the in­die mar­ket and get the first word on the lat­est from Marvel, Gen­er­a­tions. It’s a packed is­sue and we hope you en­joy it.
