The following is a selection of comics released this week (7/14/10)* that focus heavily on women in comics – whether that be characters, creators, or even readers.

The books are rated as BUY, TRADEWAIT, or SKIP.

This was a really ho-hum week, I guess something had to compensate for last week’s awesomeness.

*It should be noted that this list will focus on North American/English releases as that’s mostly what I have access to.  Additionally, as I am in general unfamiliar with Manga, I will not be including Manga titles in my lists.  For some great reviews and discussion of Manga titles I urge you to check out Danielle Leigh on CSBG.

Revolver by Matt Kindt came out this week, and while I wasn’t able to purchase it it’s definitely worth a look.  Great premise and the artwork looks fantastic.

Additionally I am STILL looking for copies of The Last Unicorn #2 and Ghost Projekt #3 so that I can review them here, but I expect both to be BUYS based on excellent previous issues.

THE AVENGERS ACADEMY #2.  Christos Gage (writer).  Mike McKone (artist and cover).  Jeromy Cox (colors).  Marvel.  32 pages. $2.99.

This kind of snuck up on me this week as I was so let down by issue #1 I wasn’t expecting much here, but this was solid all around.  The writing was good, the art was nice (except for the cover, which is very weird looking – what is up with Quicksilver’s head/torso?), and the storyline is taking a nice interesting turn.  The issue focused mostly on Finesse and I feel like we got some unexpected surprises in that.  The book still has a lot of female leads (Finesse, Veil, and Hazmat) and all of them wear super appropriate superhero gear, which is refreshing as all get out.  The sole “problem” is Tigra’s string bikini…which gets more ridiculous and absurdly out of place with each issue.  Time for a makeover Tigra!  BUY.
