Romance, Adventure and Gender: The History and Meaning of “Girl Comics”
What does it mean for comics to be called “girl comics”? Ellie Pyle hosts a roundtable of past and present Marvel editors to answer that question. They chat about the genre of “girl comics”, the romance and adventure series from the 1940s and ‘50s, and the 2010 limited series that came under fire for its name.
Marvel’s Women of the 1970s
Judy Stephens talks to some of the women of Marvel from the 1970s! Linda Fite wrote The Claws of the Cat and Jean Thomas wrote Night Nurse, two comics aimed at a female audience in the early ‘70s – right in the middle of the second-wave feminist movement.
The Personal is Political: An Interview with Bobbie Chase

Judy Stephens chats with two writers who got their start with fanfiction and now write canon stories for Marvel – Mackenzi Lee, author of Loki: Where Mischief Lies and Gamora and Nebula: Sisters in Arms, and Stephanie Williams, who wrote a Monica Rambeau story for Marvel’s Voices: Legacy. Plus, Judy, Angélique, and Ellie all share their own loves for fanfic!

This is amazing. The girls in marvel are pushed back and it makes me mad. This is like a movie, but better. You guys are doing great. Girls need to stand up.
