Episode 21: Hard-Working Hummingbirds

Hello and welcome to This Week in Ladies!

Here's what we've got on tap for you this week:

  • This Week in Comics
    She-Hulk #2, Hawkeye #15, Loki: Agent of Asgard #2 and Avengers Assemble #24 | "She-Hulk" and "Loki" introduce us to some new characters with a lot of promise, "Avengers Assemble" gives us the Spider-Girl/real Avenger pair-up we've all been waiting for, and "Hawkeye" revisits Clint's Council of Exes. Overall, a really strong week in comics with a lot of consistent storytelling, art and characterization.
  • This Week in the Book Report
    This week, we're talking about books that make us want to go to there: books with a great sense of place, from the general (small-town Southern America, "the big city") to the specific (Texas and New England, surprise), from the quaint (Prince Edward Island) to the exotic (Prague. Prague Prague Prague).
  • Special Guest Kelly Sue DeConnick
    Comic book writer Kelly Sue DeConnick ("Pretty Deadly," "Captain Marvel," "Avengers Assemble") joins us for a discussion of popular culture, relationships, the creative process and, of course, all the exciting projects she's working on ("Bitch Planet," we're ready. Also check out Kelly Sue's Pinterest board for the series. Hello, leather). We are so grateful to Kelly Sue for taking the time to talk with us. We really enjoyed the interview and think you will, too! Please take a minute to check out Kelly Sue's Web site. You can also find her work wherever fine comics are sold.
