Now, surely there’s a phrase from Game Of Thrones that I could use as a snappy headline for this … Mother Of Food? Food Of Dragons? A Feast Of Ice And Fire? At any rate, Dinner Is Coming in the form of a local food event organised by our friends over at Geek Crusade.

A continuation from last week’s Workshop Wednesday, this week it’s painting up the Ork Lootas.
It’s the dawn of a new era for Marvel action figures as we wave good-bye to Hasbro’s Marvel Universe line and welcome the Infinite Series. The inaugural series also by Hasbro has just hit our local retail stores and the first lineup consists of favorites like the Wasp, ‘Marvel NOW!’ armored Hulk, Hyberion and super-villain the Grim Reaper making their 3.75-inch debuts, as well as reissues of classic Captain America and ‘Bleeding Edge Armor’ Iron Man.
As one of the company’s most iconic characters, Jennifer Walters, the original She-Hulk, has been relatively successful at sustaining a fanbase, by proving that she’s both capable of starring in her own series, as well as being part of a team book.
In recent months, she has been both a part of the recently ended FF, and the recently begun Mighty Avengers. The new She-Hulk title, along with Ms. Marvel, Black Widow, the upcoming Captain Marvel and Elektra, are a very strong sign of of All-New Marvel NOW!’s commitment to have more of Marvel Comics’ female superheroes getting the chance to star in their own solo series.
The question is, however, does the new She-Hulk #1 by the creative team of Charles Soule, Javier Pulido and Muntsa Vincente add to her enduring legacy, or detract from it?
The much-hyped debut of new Marvel superhero Kamala Khan is finally here, as Ms. Marvel #1 went on comic book shelves three weeks ago. For many, this title has been the one to watch, mainly because of how the media is obsessed with the fact that Kamala is Marvel’s first Muslim superhero to have her own series. Immediate reactions had mentions of “diversity” and “tokenism” and even “Islamophobia”.
Proving how big a deal the announcement was, journalist Shehryar Warraich interviewed a wide range of Pakistanis in Lahore for their initial thoughts on the new Ms. Marvel, even before the launch of the book. (Even though Kamala is a first-generation American and identifies more with Jersey City than Karachi.)
But now that the actual story is out, what’s the real verdict? Is Ms. Marvel one of the All-New Marvel NOW! titles you cannot afford to miss?
