DC Women Kicking Ass

Thoughts, pictures, reviews and other stuff about the women in comics who kick ass.
"... 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

DC Changes Writers on Birds of Prey, Again

DC announced this morning that Birds of Prey will be going in a new direction, so new that the writer they announced in December is already off the book. Indie writer Jim Zub had been announced as taking over the book with issue 17 from Duane Swierczynski. But with the solicits for April hitting this morning DC revealed to CBR that Christy Marx would instead be writing the book. Zub also told readers on his blog he was off the book.

I was looking forward to Zub’s take on the book but I can’t complain about his successor, Christy Marx, who has been doing good work on Sword of Sorcery's Amethyst.

But it does give me another thing to put on the list of “what the heck is going on with DC editorial?”. The company also today announced Robert Vendetti was off Constantine to be replaced by Jeff Lemire and Ray Fawkes. Again can’t complain there (expecially as the team is writing Justice League Dark). And of course late last year DC removed Gail Simone off of Batgirl only to put her back on the book.

    It’s definitely odd but on the bright side, I wouldn’t say any of these were bad decisions…keeping Gail Simone on...

  11. amy-says-relax said: They haven’t even given these books a chance to sell with these writers.

    DC editorial is really diving off the deep end … but those new creative teams are SO AWESOME!
  13. auntiedrawsstuff said: Gah, just give it back to Gail already!
