2015 was a good year for the comics Bitch Planet and Ms. Marvel. Both are highly acclaimed comics and have made several “Best of 2015” top 10 lists.
The questions tonight: Are Bitch Planet and Ms. Marvel the pinnacle of comics that feature female characters as the lead?
Jon and I tackle this question in tonight’s podcast and we offer 2 alternates to each comic that we believe are on par, if not better than Bitch Planet and Ms. Marvel.
Challenge #1 – What is as good if not better than Ms. Marvel?
- Jon makes the case for Monsteress by Image
- I make the case for Paper Girls by Image. (Spoilers – This book is awesome).
Challenge #2 – What is as good if not better than Bitch Planet?
- Jon debates the merits of East of West by Image.
- I plainly state that Saga (which won an Eisner for Best Ongoing Series of 2015) is a much better comic that features women.
We hope you like the podcast and subscribe to it on iTunes.
Also, I forgot to mention Lumber Janes – another great comic that won an Eisner for Best New Series of 2015. Sorry.
Your comics pal,
