DC Women Kicking Ass

Thoughts, pictures, reviews and other stuff about the women in comics who kick ass. This is a feminist site. Deal with it.

"... provides a much-needed voice that is not often heard on traditional comic sites." - Wired's Geek Dad
... she's pretty amazingly ignorant of comics outside of the Batverse and some recent Wonder Woman, and seems pretty clueless about the way the industry works. That and she doesn't write that well at all." anonymous poster, Dreamwidth

Females target audience for Supergirl

Well it’s nice to see someone mention the female audience.

From USA Today’s article on Supergirl

Much of DC’s reasoning behind the relaunch is to appeal to people who aren’t traditional male fanboys, and Green feels Supergirl appeals to a broader audience simply because she is a real girl in a real predicament.

"We’re really excited about the opportunity to hand this book to a female reader who is into things like The Hunger Games. This is a strong character with her own point of view,” says Johnson, whose new IDW Star Trek series also debuts Wednesday.

The creators also wanted Supergirl to look appropriate to a teenage reader. There’s a reason behind her new tights, which is teased in the first issue, and gone are older versions of the character wearing midriff-baring tops and short skirts.

 I wish they’d tried that with Stephanie Brown’s Batgirl run.

Anyway here is a preview:

  14. sry2say said: like the art but her costume is just silly. I don’t think it’s even age-inappropriate (it’s less inappropriate than the naughty miniskirt kara was sporting a few years ago). her boots look ridiculous and they should let her wear a skort or something.

    So they’re rectifying the miniskirts and crop tops by putting a giant red triangle on her crotch. Good going, guys.

    I like how Michael Green just straight up says “We’re writing this comic for girls.”
