Hey there! I am really looking for a comic for my 7 yr old daughter that has a strong female lead, she is extremely advanced reading wise but I don't want the content to be too mature... Do you think that the new Captain Marvel would be suitable? Failing that any good, strong female leads for us to try on a regular basis? Thanks for reading!

I *think* Captain Marvel should be fine (I’ve got a six year old boy and I can’t think of anything off the top of my head from the previous run that I wouldn’t let him read), but I would always recommend you pre-screen.  

Edited to add — yes! Check out Princeless

here's a question. i don't know if anyone's asked you about this before, but have you given any thought to whereabouts carol's alignment would fall in the chaotic good/neutral good/lawful good scale? i have my guess here but i'd really like to hear your take!!

Lawful good, I think.  I wish I could say chaotic good, because it just feels like that has more swagger, but I think it’s a lie. 

geodude96 asked:

How do you decide what to name a character you created?

That varies quite a bit.  Sometimes the name is a reference to someone or something, sometimes it’s just an intuitive choice.  Sometimes I’ll do something like flip through a phone book or something.*

Helen Cobb got her last name from Jerrie Cobb.  Her first name… just felt right.  No idea where it came from.  

*The only reason to have a phone book anymore.  

showtime-eric asked:

Are there times that you finish writing something (like, say, Helen Cobb's letter to Carol) and you can't help but lean back and say to yourself, "Fuck, that's good"? Or is that not something that you allow yourself to think about during the writing process?

HA HA HA HA HA HA… no.  Alas.

I always think I could have done better if I’d had more time.

Being a huge fan of your Captain Marvel, I was chatting about the upcoming series today and in doing so I heard a rumor. I thought I'd ask if you even CAN comment before or instead of repeating the rumor to the wilds of Tumblr. Supposedly, while the new Captain Marvel title is listed in Previews as an (apparent) ongoing, it is appearing as a 6 issue series for actual orders. A mistake? A surprise? Are you bound by NDAs? Should I redirect the question to Marvel editorial? Can we panic yet?

Wacker was asked about this and said it was a mistake.  Here.  I know absolutely nothing about it.  

I spoke to David Lopez yesterday about Captain Marvel for a couple of hours and we were laying down plans for 20 issues, so he and I are thinking positively anyway.  

I really do believe it’s an honest mistake, but listen — perception and rumor will hurt the book. So, in light of all this it’s doubly important that we as Carol Corps folks get the word out to PREORDER PREORDER PREORDER.  

(CM aside, if you’ve got friends who are interested in dipping their foot in the comics pool who don’t know what a preorder is or how to do it — this is your chance to mentor them into the larger community. Help them find a shop or a site, try some titles, set up a pull, etc.)

So since I don’t know what I’m doing today, I thought I’d post this at the midnight hour, as it were. This being my gift for the Carol Corps gift exchange! My recipient is whyohwhykai, and my gift is a HECK YES sort of fanmix, for when you want to get PUMPED up and feel as powerful and beautiful as Carol. Whyohwhykai, from my sneaky research, seems all about feeling confident and beautiful, so I figured a fanmix was a solid bet. Hope you all like it, especially you, whyohwhykai!
