A place where comic book fans and nerds have a home..

I’m waiting in for the Felicia Day panel line, and  talking with a new friend about cosplaying. And the boyfriends that don’t come to cons. So far my day has been all about DC Comics, in which I have gained plenty of info for my marketing project on DC. I have to admit I am having serious regret not cosplaying this year. I have so much respect admiration for those who put in so much time into these amazing costumes. Felicia Day just got on stage, and since I’m bad at live blogging I’ll go now.

There is a great documentary making its rounds called Wonder Women! The Untold Story of American Superheroines that traces the evolution and legacy of Wonder Woman.  The film covers the birth of the comic book superheroine to the blockbuster television series, while looking at how popular representation of powerful women often reflects society’s own anxieties about women’s liberation. The film was recently apart of the documentary series Independent Lens and you can still watch the film on PBS website for free. However if you want some post film discussion in the comfort of your own bed or couch , you can head over to ITVS OVEE on April 24 where they will be doing a free screening of Wonder Women! . I highly suggest you watch this film anyway that you can. Even you aren’t a comic book or Wonder Woman film it’s an intriguing film to watch.

    I guess it takes a break-up and eating tons of vegan cupcakes, to make you realize that maybe you pour energy into bringing you blog back from the dead blog grave. So I’ve stop wearing my faded two holes away from being useless hoodie*. And instead started plotting Her Comics return. If you have a comic book or zine that you want reviewed, or event coming up and would like me to cover it, email at hercomics at gmail dot com.

As for now I’m going back to plotting my C2E2 schedule .

 

* My computer for some reason knows “foodie” but not “hoodie”.

 


    If you haven’t marked June 15 and 16th on calendar then you should. Those are the dates for Chicago Alternative Comics Expo also known as CAKE. Special guest this year include  Phoebe Gloeckner and Melissa Mendes to name a few. The event will take place at Center on Halsted and best of all it’s FREE, so you have no excuse not go. So consider yourself warned!
