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 ..."

Why I’ll miss Dwayne McDuffie

Because he had a vision of comic superheroes for kids and people of all races. And he made it happen.

I’ve told this story before, but I will tell it again. When the Hostess cupcakes promotion happened last fall featuring Batman, Superman, Flash and Green Lantern, my friend showed her son the box. He took one look at it and said, “that’s not the Green Lantern, the Green Lantern is black.”

And he is to millions of kids, because of Dwayne McDuffie. And Static is a cool character for kids because of Dwayne McDuffie. And Vixen is as well known as Black Canary to many people, because of Dwayne McDuffie.

His vision, his work, his belief that EVERYONE deserves to have a superhero like them, shouldn’t be forgotten. Must not be forgotten.

RIP and thanks.
