Listen to the Women of Marvel

Last week the first official Women of Marvel podcast hit the Internet, featuring some of the editors and staff at Marvel Comics in New York City. Editor of Ms. Marvel and Captain Marvel Sana Amanat, Jeanine Schaefer, Judy Stephens, and Adri Cowan host the first episode, chatting easily about their backgrounds and their plans for future podcasts. (Giveaways, creators, and celebrity guests, to name a few!)

The Women of Marvel also quickly followed up the first podcast with a “mini-episode” yesterday, featuring Captain Marvel writer Kelly Sue DeConnick.

Not only will the hosts provide recommendations for anyone daunted by getting into comic books, I was excited to hear about the creation of a Women of Marvel book club that encourages listeners to read and discuss a comic each month.

And join in on the Women of Marvel podcast’s book club! Each episode, the hosts will chat about a current female-led book and answer the Qs you send via Twitter (with the hashtag #WOMReads) and email—and ask you to join in on the talk with them. 25 first come, first served digital codes for each comic will be given away per episode, so make sure to listen to find out how to get yours and join in on the discussion!

If you’re in the mood to tune in to other female fans leading discussions on comic books and superheroes, check out the phenomenal podcasts 3 Chicks Review Comics (with new episodes coming soon) and The Arkham Sessions.
