Sorry for the lack of updates - Tammy’s been hard at work on EXILE, and I’ve been hard at work sorting copies of maps from previous books and reorganizing the front office. A quick pic to tide you over, and a reminder that MS. MARVEL #3 COMES OUT TODAY!

“Patience is a virtue—-oh stop it, just get to your comic shops already. It’s Ms. Marvel Day once again. Issue #3 is on sale NOW.”

So, um, what happens when my body.. uh… changes?

allnewmsmarvel:

Awesome things happen, Kam.  Awesome, awesome things. It’s only awkward if you make it awkward.

See you tomorrow, 4/16 when issue 3 goes on sale. FINALLY!

chrpollo asked: There is a conversation going on that Kamala's fans may be interested in: "HellYeahTeenSuperheroes" and Professor Thorgi share some sales numbers and put in context how well (or bad) are Marvel's teen heroes books doing in the print market: Ms. Marvel is going great!!!(professorthorgi*tumblr*com/post/82102687765/march-sales-figures) Even better, this doesn't include digital sales.

Thank you for linking this. The full conversation can be seen here.

A friend and I were actually discussing this recently and, at least with Ms. Marvel, the reorder numbers are insane. To put this all into perspective:

February Sales (x)
24. Ms. Marvel #1 - 50,286

March Sales (x)
42. Ms. Marvel #2 - 38,357
243. Ms. Marvel #1 - 6,963 (second printing)

I think the rather large amount of reorders for Ms. Marvel #1 is a nice indicator about how the book is doing so far. The jump in sales between the #1 to #2 issues isn’t anything I’m concerned with since that’s pretty normal. The fact that #1 is at its third printing makes me really optimistic for how many people this book is actually reaching. As you stated, this doesn’t include digital sales. One thing I think Ms. Marvel is definitely doing is grabbing the attention of potential new readers. I’ve been seeing individuals who have never read comics become curious enough to check out Ms. Marvel. Friends who are aware of my obsession interest in comics have asked me where to start. Individuals who work at my own comic shop mentioned that people stopped by before the release of the #1 issue to ask about it to gain more information. Is this a trend everywhere? I can’t say yes completely, but I’d like to think so. 

I don’t think that this is a coincidence either. The marketing of Kamala Khan as the new Ms. Marvel has been continuous (and strategic) since she was announced back in November 2013. My friend had also pointed out the use of alternative media outlets that aren’t normally used to promote comics, which is undoubtedly a contributing factor to the success of this book. 

How the book fares for the rest of the year remains to be seen, but I don’t think it was possible to have a stronger start. That fact alone makes me super excited.

(As a sidenote, Ms. Marvel #3 will be released on April 16th, one week from today. Get excited!)

The Carol Corps and the Kamala Korps Are Changing the Way Marvel Thinks About Female Superheroes

Kamala Korps/Carol Corps Smithsonian Meet-up!

jenngeek:

After looking over the responses from my last post, it seems Friday, April 18thhas won out as the best day to do a Meet-Up during Awesome Con weekend. It was the date that offered the least amount of competition with Program Scheduling. (Also my sincere apologies if you already have Easter/Good Friday/Passover plans that conflict. Scheduling, what can you do.)

So! Details:

Carol Corps and Kamala Korps Meet-Up at the National Air and Space Museum on Friday, April 18th at 2pm

Independence Ave at 6th Street, SW 
Washington, DC 20560
Phone: 202-633-2214

Let’s meet at the Space Race section, off to the left hand side on the first floor when you enter the building. Costumes are encouraged for picture taking purposes, but please do keep in mind that this is DC so if you think something on your costume might worry security you should probably leave it at home/in your hotel. (Aw, arrows.)

Please be sure to check out the Awesome Con website for further details about comic related events happening that weekend. I’ll be running around as a volunteer for something or another, so don’t be shy to ask me any questions. See you in two weeks! :)

Please note that this is an informal get together and is in no way associated with Awesome Con or the Smithsonian Institute.
