Whilst perusing for some geekery I came across an article over at the BBC news site and thought it was cool. According to the piece, there’s a new comic is out in the US this week (and UK Nov 18) and it features Spider-Girl, a non-sexualised, 16 yr old, latino superhero. Spider-Girl aka Anya Corazon is the daughter of an investigative reporter living in New York city, who Marvel Comics say “provides a positive, modern image of an empowered young woman”.
Sounds like something definitely worth a purchase. I’m not a huge comic book buyer, but this sounds really interesting. You can check out the full article by Cordelia Hebblethwaite over at the BBC News site.
