“...(Tamora Pierce's)name is synonymous with female-oriented fantasy literature, her works bestsellers, and her fans devoted and illuminated. That she was willing to sit down with us, listen to what we had to offer, is one of the best things that has happened on my watch at Marvel. Tamora’s vision of what fantasy and science fiction can aspire to is nothing short of ground-breaking, and what we look forward to her producing with the House of Ideas is really and truly something to look forward to.”

“Her first project will be WHITE TIGER. Tamora’s going to revisit the concept, linking it to the original Tiger and creating a new female hero with street smarts, guts, and a whole lotta obsession. I hope all Marvel fans will take a look and join us on this new adventure.”


What I love about this is that the character is latina, but thankfully Marvel isn't using that lil thing as a gimmick to sell the book on.
The character will fail or succeed based on how well it's written and not on her skin color and/or ethnicity...
By simply letting the character be a good,solid character that just happens to be latina,and not defined necessarily by her ethnic origin, as opposed to "HEY!!! THIS IS THE LATINA SUPERHEROINE! BUY IT,SHE IS THE COOLEST CHICA EVER, AND LATINA!", Marvel is doing the right thing...

That said, I am personally happy to see more diversity and color (figuratively and literally) added to comics.
And I'm always up for a strong female character!
Can't wait till this starts!

Looks very cool!
The White Tiger/Agent Del Toro is definitely a character that deserves her own series.
I'm in.

Hi David & friends,

I love the cover! I really do hope that a print of it is made in the future. But yeah, I'm really looking forward to seeing the rest of the covers. I think I'll give the book a try, I just hope that Marvel picks a good interior artist though.

Wow, I am never ceased to be amazed. I'll buy this title for the covers alone. Beautiful design work on the costume. You really spiffed Del Toro up!:D
