Sex in the Marvel Universe

The news of the release of Marvel Divas was met with all the rage of the fangirls.

Marvel Divas 01 J Scott Campbell

From the cover I was expecting same T&A artwork by some Campbell clone. I had a nice surprise when saw the interior of the comic.

MARVDIVAS001_int-1The artwork of Tonci Zonjic is very solid and classy, it really complements the story to deliver what Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa promissed.

“In the series, they’re an unlikely foursome of friends–Black Cat, Hell Cat, Firestar, and Photon–with TWO things in common: They’re all leading double-lives and they’re all having romantic trouble. The pitch started as “Sex and the City” in the Marvel Universe, and there’s definitely that “naughty” element to it, but I also think the series is doing to a deeper place, asking question about what it means…truly means…to be a woman in an industry dominated by testosterone and guns. (And I mean both the super hero industry and the comic book industry.) But mostly it’s just a lot of hot fun.”

MARVDIVAS001_int-4Afer reading the preview at Newsarama I only have to say, that for the good and the bad Marvel Divas is Sex In The City in the Marvel Universe. The choice of J. Scott Campbell as cover artist, for this series, was a casting mistake.
