Captain Marvel is hitting theaters this weekend, becoming the first female-led Marvel Studios film, and with so many amazing female heroes on the scene today in comics, television, and movies, this new eBay store wants to become a one-stop shop to find gear and collectibles for your favorites. Simone and Staggs worked with eBay on the new store, to help bring more attention to the ever-growing roster of new female heroes.
To put that into perspective, eBay has seen a 63% spike in sales year over year for Captain Marvel and a 34% jump in sales year over year for female superheroes overall, and that's a trend we only want to see grow.
“Spotlighting the amazing spectrum of women in comics has long been my passion, both the characters in the books, and the writers and artists who create them,” said Gail Simone, writer of such titles as Wonder Woman, Batgirl, and Domino. “I believe these fantastic women can inspire readers everywhere to the limits of their imagination and creativity. That’s why I’m teaming up with eBay to bring more attention and accessibility to comics featuring strong female characters of past and present.”
A new poster for Superheroine HQ, which was created by Staggs (Smallville Season 11, Adventures of Supergirl), perfectly captures what they hope to create with the store, an easy entryway for young fans to discover heroes that they can identify with as well as discovering a passion for comics. You can check out the poster above.
