The Vault – Gender Through Comic Books

The Retcon Punchers spend an awful lot of time looking for ways to celebrate our nerdy obsessions. This means a lot of time sunk into scouring Etsy, Deviant Art, Think Geek or whatever. Sometimes we see things so great we just have to share them… and then clutch them fiercely to our collective chest. Throw it in The Vault.


Who Would Love This: Those who want to dive deeper into the rabbit hole of comic books.

Price: FREE.

First of all, yes that was Stan Lee! Alright, so this isn’t exactly a geeky product you’d find on Think Geek or Etsy, but it certainly does help us celebrate and even explore our nerdy obsessions. Mark Waid (of Daredevil fame) has introduced the first comics specific Massive Open Online Course, or M.O.O.C. for short. That means this is FREE and available to EVERYONE! All you need is the internet and a geeky appreciation of comics. That also means you get special access to interviews with some of the biggest names in comics. Names like Brian Bendis, Scott Snyder, Brian K. Vaughn, Gail Simone,  Jonathan Hickman, and MORE. Class begins on April 2nd and you can register right NOW! To get all the details check out Mr. Waid’s blog. Lastly, if you’re as excited about this as we are here at Retcon Punch then help spread the word!

  1. I’m so glad you thought of featuring this, Mik. Funny story: I actually registered for this back in November, forgot, and tried to register again in January. Credit goes to Mr. Waid’s twitter feed for bringing this to my attention, but blame may go to twitter in general for giving me such an embarrassingly short memory.

  2. Thank goodness for Mr. Waid in general, but specifically for introducing this to us via his blog. This is a MIND BLOWING opportunity and I’m sure people who’d love to do something like this still don’t even know about it. I hope this thing gets a huge turnout. Imagine if this leads to more comic book courses? I’m salivating at the thought!
