Ask the Geeky Girls -
Jen (TinyDancerKnits) from Texas asks:
For Damaris: I love comics and graphic novels! My dad used to sporadically come home with comics when I was a pre-teen/teen and I really never had a say in what comics I read. (Don’t get me wrong, I was happy to read anything he came home with!) I’d really like to start reading comics again, but am easily overwhelmed in a comic store. There are so many!! I have the first two graphic novels in the New 52 series for Nightwing (Nightwing is a long time favorite), but other than that, I don’t know where to start! Do you have any favorites you would recommend?

Damaris mentioned:
Black Widow by Nathan Edmondson
Black Widow (Name of the Rose) by Marjorie Liu
Ms. Marvel by G. Willow Wilson
Captain Marvel by Kelly Sue DeConnick (currently being written by Fazekas & Butters)
Hawkeye by Matt Fraction
She-Hulk by Charles Soule
