Girl Comics #3
I think I’m rather sad that this series is ending, and it’s taken me longer than normal to put together my review, post-reading it. I hope Marvel continues to make an effort in hiring talented women to write, draw, color, ink, letter, edit, etc. their comic books. I would hate to see this “marketing stunt” turn just into that.
Jo Chen’s cover is my least favorite out of all the Girl Comics‘ covers. First, I don’t think they’re all super tall. Like beyond supermodel tall.
