Marvelette Missives – Infinity War/Infinity Gauntlet

Now that we’ve finally seen the trailer for Avengers: Infinity War and geeked out about the sheer number of heroes we’ll be seeing on the big screen, it’s time to step back and see where the plot comes from. The Infinity War comic was a six-issue series published by Marvel in 1992. So the movie is based on that series, right? Well no, not really.  More

Marvelette Missives – Slugfest

Whether you’re a fan of the tv shows, the movies or the comic books themselves, you know about the decades-long rivalry between Marvel and DC. Yes, they are obviously competitors in the same market, but it’s always been a little bit more than that. The products they sell may be the same on a basic level, but there’s always been a “mine is better than yours” attitude between the companies and the fans of their work. And for the fans who, like me, love finding out about behind the scenes details, there’s a great new book on the history of these two comic book giants.  More

Marvelette Missives – Jessica Jones: Avenger

Marvelette Missives – Jessica Jones: Avenger

It’s been almost a year since we last talked about Jessica Jones. In that post, we looked at the then-new comic book series Jessica Jones (which is still going strong and has some fantastic writing and artwork). But if you’re reading that series or have watched the Netflix shows she’s on, you may be wondering about Jessica’s early days as a hero and her connection to the Avengers. The collection Jessica Jones: Avenger is the book you need.  More
