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

Justice League Dark artist Mikel Janin on the cover

Mikel stopped by to explain what happened with cover:

As I’ve already explained (a week ago in my blog), it was not an editorial choice to make her show her cleavage, but to match the interiors. The solicit cover was made BEFORE the series, and this corset appeared solely in issue #1. Then, Zee’s look has been slightly different in each issue, with black corsets, white corsets, black jackets and so. I’m sorry if someone is offended but there’s not any intention other than match the interior pages. 
Best regards!

And indeed Zatanna is wearing that outfit, among others, in book:

    OK. Let me put a couple things aside first: 1. I never really got on board with a LOT of the New 52 redesigns. I could...
  2. shes-just-like-the-weather said: I loved Zatanna’s old costume. It was sexy, yes, but it was classy as well. Now she looks… well, she kind of looks like a stripper from a biker club. Why fix something that wasn’t broken!?

    I’m fine with the cover being made...match the interiors…I’m not fine
  4. therearecertainshadesoflimelight said: So perhaps the answer is DON’T MAKE HER LOOK LIKE THAT IN THE INTERIOR!!!!

  10. tonguedepresser said: That’s comforting to know. Still a bit off-putting, but it at least wasn’t a cynical attempt to draw in male readers.

    Still miss the stage magician look.
  12. dickgraceson said: Even though it’s been explained, I still feel disappointed.
  13. nightowlqueen said: Okay, I understand why they did it. But that top is just plain ugly.
  14. gorgeous-monsters said: I can see their intention. It still disappoints me, though.
