I’m used to poorly written first person female narration by a male writer (it’s called almost every comic book published today by either of the big two featuring a female character and lots of indie ones too). However, McKeever writing Captain Marvel (or Photon or whatever) to sound “black” is another story. I think he must have a “black woman” phrase book at his desk.
And don’t get me started on….
Oh, wow. McKeever equates surviving cancer to getting another life in a video game. What a brilliant observation. I usually like him well enough too, but this comic’s just terrible.
Rios’s artwork’s okay. It’s manga-influenced and very “girl power” in that flashy, meaningless Marvel way As I’ve always said, if Marvel or DC wants to make a strong bid for mature female readership, get a good female writer to write a female character, not a mediocre male one.
