Off-Panel: April 22, 2015

Our daily round-up of news around the comics space, from the gutters and beyond.

“To promote their upcoming superhero movie Ant-Man, Marvel has quietly been placing tiny, ant-sized billboards in various public places.”

This playful promotion makes me hopeful about the tone of the Ant-Man movie.

“The rumor says Kamala Khan caught his eye and is the character he’s moving forward with. The show would purportedly focus mostly on her obsession with superheroes, and cultural issues like Islamaphobia. That way it would slowly ease her into being a superhero, without necessarily needing Captain Marvel to serve as Kamala’s inspiration, given the Captain Marvel is still years away.”

I want a Ms. Marvel show SO BAD but I want Agent Carter too. This better not be an either/or situation.

“The self-described comic book fan said she began drafting her thesis on quasicrystals – a subset of crystals that diverge from the usual structural characteristics of crystals. Berns quickly concluded that she would be best able to describe the oddball compounds with illustrations.”

This isn’t the first time I’ve heard of this happening, but I think it’s very cool.
