Kelly Sue DeConnick (Captain Marvel, Avengers Assemble) has collaborated with WeLoveFine to guest curate a collection of t-shirts featuring Marvel Comics superheroes such as Captain Marvel and Spider-Woman. The showcase includes bright pop art designs and straight-from-the-pages artwork of two of Marvel’s favorite heroines. DeConnick will be donating her curation commission to Girls’ Leadership Institute, a nonprofit organization that seeks “to help foster and give voice to the heroines of tomorrow.”

One of ComicsAlliance’s picks for the Best Comics of 2012, Captain Marvel began the new year with a striking visual overhaul courtesy of Filipe Andrade and Jordie Bellaire, whose work can be described in any number of ways, but “Marvel house style” is not one of them. These artists’ increasingly attractive collaboration has made the already distinctive solo-woman superhero series stand out even further from the rest of the Marvel line, and you can get an idea of why in the sample pages featured on ComicsAlliance.
Bizarro Back Issues: Boxing Day With Captain Marvel! (1944)
By Chris Sims
Christmas has once again come and gone, but before the holidays are over, there’s one last celebration we all have to get through before New Year’s rolls around and puts a cap on it: Boxing Day! The only problem is that the True Meaning of Boxing Day has been explored in roughly zero movies (as opposed to the True Meaning of Christmas, which has been pretty thoroughly dealt with in about 4,926), so I always just tend to think of it as a wintry celebration of people punching each other in the face.
I always try to celebrate with the most pugilistic comic I can find, and this year, that led me to 1944’s Captain Marvel Adventures #35, which promised a boxing match between Billy Batson’s alter ego and a soldier, and then went on to become one of the all-time craziest comic books I have ever read.
