Washington Post: Ms. Marvel & Marvel Comics' Focus on Female Characters

The Washington Post's Comic Riffs Blog on relanch of Ms. Marvel:

Axel Alonso, Marvel’s editor-in-chief, tells Comic Riffs that the stars of these new books “are not the big-breasted, scantily clad women that perhaps have become the comic-book cliché. They are women with rich interior lives, interesting careers and complicated families who are defined by many things—least of all their looks.”

Sounds promising. Is Alonso worried about scaring off the traditional male readership associated with comic books?

The correct answer is "Screw the neck beards. Have you been into a comic book store in the last 5 years? We want some of the Fionna and Cake scratch."

I will be reading "Ms. Marvel" at lunch. You should too.
