Kelly Sue is here to talk about her recent run of stories happening at Marvel, from her One-Shots featuring Sif and Pepper Potts (Rescue) , plus stories happening in The Heroic Age & Girl Comics. Also, I feel compelled to get into a discussion about a subject that I thought wasn’t relevent anymore.

Is there still a glass ceiling when it comes to women creators in comics? Don’t we laud several accomplished editors writers and artists? Are women being denied the chance to make books, because of gender? Kel isn’t her to speak “for all womankind” , but I did want her POV, and we get it.

Plus the type of random pop culture fun I’d expect from a woman who’s married to Matt Fraction.KS talks about her favorite kind of female heroes and villains from Modesty Blaise to actress Rosiland Russell .

Crazy timing on this talk. Kel was days away from giving birth to their daughter Tallulah . Welcome to the  nut house kid, and good luck.

The Norwegian 80’s pop band A-Ha is in the midst of their Global Farewell Tour, and hit Chicago’s Riviera Theater last Wed.

My dear friend Sandy Patyk of WTMX Radio said the band is still in great form musically and 25 years since their global debut looked great

here are the three members… Lead singer Morten Harket

Guitarist Paul Waaktaar-Savoy

And keyboardist ‘Mags’ Furuholmen

Why should you care? If you don’t remember, in 1985 the band, and director Steve Barron gave us one of the best comic book inspired rotoscope videos  Take On Me. It was animated by Michael Patterson .

It won 6 MTV music video awards, but ironically lost the video of the year category to Dire Strait’s Computer animated “Money For Nothing”. Plus Family Guy gave it a hilarious send up in a random opening scene.
