Captain America #26

Well, I never got around to doing my thread on the Mary Jane issue. My nephew came to town and I had left my reference material at the office. To me this was a sign to not "go there". There are already so many valid arguments out there that I figured I would take my own path. That is usually to find the good in things and to look for how to improve them. In my mind, if I am not part of the solution, I am part of the problem.

At any rate, enough soap boxing. It is a gorgeous day and I made it through some major challenges. To top it off, this upcoming weekend I get three days off in a row for Memorial Day. Yay!

Here is my list of new comics for the week.

American Virgin #15
Birds of Prey #106
Countdown #49
Shadowpact #13
Woman Woman #9
Dynamo 5 #3
PVP #33
Captain America #26 (pictured)
Fantastic Four #546
She-Hulk 2 #18
Wisdom #6 (of 6)
X-Men #199
Devi #11
Snakewoman Special Collectors Edition #0

Also hitting the door are my Donna Troy and Wonder Woman Infinite Crisis actions figures. Yikes! I am very excited for them but don't think I can afford them. I will have to figure out a way!

I am hoping to do my post about marketing this weekend. My week is packed, and I will not be getting home early a single night, so I have despaired of doing it soon. I have to really be able to think and have time to do drafts when I want to make my points in a valid, rational manner. Humor me!

Have a wonderful evening!

A post about marketing - to me that actually sounds interesting. I can't wait!

That MJ thing was a mess - you were better off staying out of it. I'm going to discuss female Marvel characters on my blog soon - I've got to do a little reasearch first - you'll have to check it out.

I did want to hear what you had to say re: MJ, but the whole thing was such a landmine, it is time to move on. I did love your comment to me, meant a lot!

Lisa, I just happened to read a magazine that focused on marketing on Women and I want to share it but I know it will take some work to disseminate it all. Hopefully I will have it all done this weekend!

I can hardly wait to see your posts as well! You are cooking with gas!

Redlib- I really appreciated what you said and thought you made a very excellent point. I couldn't think of anything to add to it other then to cheer loudly!! :-)

I pretty much decided to take an entirely angle and approach and just wait until I could make an educated argument. We shall see how it goes!

There's been times that MJ has been portrayed as a total bimbo, wore daisy duke cut-offs, halter tops and basically at times was the fantasy girl that a nerd (without powers) could never dream of getting next to, much less have as a girlfriend. So, someone did a statue in that vein, Spider-Woman and other female characters are super-sexed up the various covers of Marvel. Sssssssooooo, who is to blame? Not the fans...

Carl, I appreciate your thoughts on this. I am not ready to "go there" yet as I am overworked and stressed out! Lame excuse but true. I have pretty much noticed that if I am not at the top of my game when I make some of these arguments, the wolves come in and try and eat me!! :-)

I do have issues with the whole thing though.
