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

Cover for Birds of Prey #13 Changed

I loved the cover that was solicted with Birds of Prey #13 by Ben Oliver (it’s still on their web site). It was a change from the string of covers that had featured the team in a crouch read to fight and had a bit of James Bond feel to it.

 

Awesome, right? Poster material, even.

But yesterday when DC posted the preview of the issue, the cover was this:

It’s great to have Katana have solo cover but that’s just not as good looking a cover as the one solicited. 

I wonder why they changed it? Perhaps because Katana will be appearing in Justice League of America? I do hope the Oliver cover gets used some day.
