The big news is that there's going to be a new Thor, and it's a woman. No, I'm not really clear on what that means, either. No, I don't know why her armor has boobs. No, I don't know why, if you're going for a Thor legacy hero, Sif wouldn't be your first pick.

What I do know: that gives Marvel eight, count 'em eight female-led titles. Dude. I also know that I am stoked. (Although I'd be a little more stoked if that Esad Ribic art on the left wasn't just a teaser. I want him on a female-led title, darn it!)

Also, Marvel's October solicits are out today, and mostly they're fairly meh. Wow, another event? This latest one is still going on! Also a mini chronicling the aftermath of Wolverine's death, immediately following the mini that chronicles his actual death! Wow!

HOWEVER. Two things that I do care about are: Kamala + Peter Park team-up in Amazing Spider-Man, ohhhhhh, I want ALL the Kamala teamups. And secondly, Natasha + X-23 team-up in Black Widow. Girl friendship! Bonding over assassin pasts! GIMME.

Wow, so Marvel's tactic of having Wolverine wasn't working so they killed him off so they could make sales off a huge miniseries? That's terrible. I already stopped reading X-men because he's in everything, I hope his death doesn't hit the comics I read.

But if her armor didn't have boobs, how would you know she's a ~woman??

Also, I have not read comics in foreeeeever. I have unread Black Widow issues piling up. And Ms. Marvel. And Captain Marvel. And all those old Captain America issues I bought...
