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.
"... just a dreadful little site that just basically compiles lists." - poster/DC Comics forum
"... 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
" ... a phenomenal blog that's always up to date with female superhero news ..." -Nerdbastards.com

Happy Birthday Louise Simonson!

Today is Louise “Weezie” Simonson’s 65th birthday. Simonson was head writer on “Man of Steel” for seven years becoming the first of three women who have been head writer on one of the books starring the Trinity. She was one of the writers who developed the “Death of Superman” storyline.

In addition to comics, Simonson has written a number of comic based YA books including this one featuring Wonder Woman

Simonson has also written and edited comics at Marvel. She was the head writer on both Power Pack and X-Factor. Simonson recently did an interview about women and comics and it’s a great read, check it out.

Let’s all wish her many more!
