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 ..."

DC Announces Katana Series

So the rumors I had heard at NYCC were true! In February DC will be launching a series starring Katana written by Ann Nocenti.

This is only the third ongoing DC Comics title EVER to headline a woman of color so this is indeed good news. 

Nocenti moves off of Green Arrow to pick up Katana and Jeff Lemire moves on. Unfortunately it seems this means DC is back to its female writers only writing female led books. Nocenti is also writing Catwoman and Gail Simone writes Batgirl

Katana, who debuted in the DCU in 1983, seems to be the “hot” female character within DC Entertainment right now after years of being a supporting player. In addition to headlining her own book, she’ll co-star in Geoff Johns’ Justice League of America and be seen in the upcoming “Beware the Batman” animated series. (see more on that here)

DC also announced a new series starring Vibe. And, in what I thought was a joke, 52 Variant covers for the first issue of Justice League of America. Hey, wait Vibe is back? And crazy variants? It IS the 90s again.

  13. themyskira said: Hmmmmm. On the one hand, it’s fantastic that Katana’s getting her own series. On the other hand, Ann Nocenti’s Catwoman is one of the worst-written comics I’ve read in recent times, which doesn’t fill me with confidence.
