#2016ComicBookRenaissance: Demi Marshall Staff Selections Spotlight

20160225_133504I came into the world of sequential art pretty late–I read Sandman just after I left20160225_133353 college, but it took several months into Matt Fraction’s run on Hawkeye to really get my engine going. In 2013, I attended HeroesCon in my hometown of Charlotte, NC, which helped–face to face conversations with comic book creators like Fraction and Kelly Sue DeConnick made buying trades of their work pretty irresistible. After that, it was simply a matter of consuming everything I could find, and deciding what I liked.

After three years of avid comic book consumption, I’d absolutely call myself a 20160225_133338comic book geek. My favorite stories include well-written women as the main characters, and anything espousing positive relationships between teenage girls. See20160317_123828: Prez, Bitch Planet, Lumberjanes, Ms. Marvel, Giant Days. I also have an enormous soft spot for Black Widow, She-Hulk, and Spider-Woman, although I read fewer superhero comics than anything else, these days. I recently took it upon myself to read the entirety of Secret Wars, the epic Marvel crossover event, so I’m a little burned out on Big Two titles.

Knowing me, though, that won’t last long.

  1. I read Deadpool the year I came to North America at a tender age of six-teen. I am glad that my mother didn’t find out about that until I watched the Deadpool movie. He and I sure go way back!
