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 ..."

My daughter absolutely loves Batgirl, but I feel the current run is not age-appropriate for her (she's 3 1/2). Are there any Batgirl (or other female superhero) comics you would recommend for someone her age? Thank you for taking the time to read this. I'm a huge fan of your blog!

Hi, that’s great! I really love all the Batgirl things they have for little girls. I was in Toys R Us and saw a Batgirl costume in the “girls” section of the store and it made me happy. 

As far as books and comics its get a bit tougher. There really isn’t a lot targeted at the young kids. You best bet is Tiny Titans which regularly featured Batgirl. They comics are very kid friendly and “Babs” is featured in every issue. They have quite a few trades available. Both my kids loved them.
