Buy These Flippin’ Comics!!! (7.16.14) Dismantling the Boys Club


Wow, what a week for comics, huh ladies and germs?  A Batgirl redesign, an all-new Thor, both garnering worldwide press in the mainstream.  Can you feel it in the air?  The crackle, the hum, the whiff of ozone…change is coming.  There may come a day when news like a female Thor won’t attract that kind of attention, or the fact that an actual DC character is smiling in a comic won’t be seen as an oddity, but we’re not there yet.  However, I get the sense that comics are at a turning point, that we really are at the dawn of something new, something great, and fortunately, to prove my point there are a slew of great titles dropping this week to back up the claim.  So lace up those canary-yellow Tims, grab Mjolnir (or any hammer, should Thor’s weapon deem you unworthy), hit the jump, and let’s go smash some glass ceilings, shall we?

A complete list of this week’s comics can be found HERE.
