Women Dominate Marvel Lineup in Comixology

by AJ Adejare

Comixology decided to drop some statistics about their latest Buy One Get One free initiative for Marvel Comics.  The following says a lot about comics:

  1. Silk #1
  2. Star Wars #2
  3. Darth Vader #1
  4. Star Wars #1
  5. Ms. Marvel #12
  6. Ms. Marvel #11
  7. Ms. Marvel #10
  8. Thor #5
  9. Ms. Marvel #9
  10. Thor #4

While Star Wars comics have a good solid lead, the list is dominated by women main characters.  What’s also interesting is that with these women characters, their series pick up are done in sets.  Thor get two titles up there while Ms. Marvel has 3 titles consecutively lined up.

To be blunt, people should embrace this initiative as Diversity equals Diverse Money and will appreciate the diversity in comics such as writers, characters, and publishers.
