Women of Marvel Magazine

Ms Marvel graces the cover of the Women of Marvel magazine (Spring 2010). The issue has a mix of articles, pin ups and comic reprints that celebrates seven decades of women from Timely/Marvel Comics. The first article is titled "Witches, Widows and Warrior Women" by Robert Greenberger that is a retrospective of Marvel's females through the decades. That is followed by the first appearance of the Black Widow from Timely's Mystic Comics #4. The next article is titled "Female Creators Through the Ages" by Robert Greenberger. A Q&A with Flo Steinberg and "Bring on the Bad Girls" by Valerie D'Orazio follows.

A reprint of Tales of Suspense #52 that features the first modern appearance of Black Widow against Iron Man is included. Sarah Jaffe then interviews editor Jeanine Schaefer about Girl Comics, a new anthology title featuring tales of Marvel super heroes created entirely by women. There is even a two page preview of Girl Comics featuring Doctor Octopus grocery shopping. A reprint of Savage She-Hulk #1 follows. Will Panzo writes about "America's Next Top Mutant Model" and "X-Love". A reprint of The Uncanny X-Men #201 is next. Finally, Kiel Phegley takes a look at "The Unstoppable Spider-Girl". The last page states that Marvel will be celebrating their greatest super heroines with one-short specials that features X-23, Sif, Firestar, Dazzler, Rescue, Namora, Lady Deadpool, Spitfire and Valkyrie. There will also be variant covers by Jelena Kevic Djurdjevic that spotlights the Women of Marvel.
