Strong Female Protagonist, an on-going webcomic by Brennan Lee Mulligan and Molly Osterag, will be coming out with a print edition from Top Shelf in 2015. What’s great about this comic is the nuance and questions the protagonist has as she struggles with figuring out the best way to achieve change in the world—do super-powered punches really do the trick?

The latest series in Valiant Entertainment’s universe, The Death-Defying Dr. Mirage, features the first major shake-up in their reboot: the titular character is a woman instead of a man. Writer Jen Van Meter talks about the decision to change the main character into a woman as well as delving into her backstory and place in the wider Valiant universe. As someone who’s read the first issue with no idea of the change, the series has—so far—been evocative, magic fun.
