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

Batwoman Nominated for GLAAD Media Award

GLAAD has announced its nominations for its media awards and Batwoman was again nominated in the Best Comic category. The comic has won the award twice before. DC Comics also picked up a nomination for Earth-2 which made headlines earlier this year when the Green Lantern Alan Scott was reimagined as an out gay man.

The full list of nominees are:

Astonishing X-Men by Marjorie Liu from Marvel
Batwoman by W. Haden Blackman, J.H. Williams III from DC Comics
Buffy the Vampire Slayer by Andrew Chambliss, Scott Allie, Jane Espenson, Drew Z. Greenberg from Dark Horse
Earth 2 by James Robinson from DC Comics
Kevin Keller by Dan Parent from Archie Comics
I spent this morning replying to someone who felt compelled to post incredibly tin eared comments in a discussion from eight months ago about the need for visibility and representation in comics.
Frustrating but sadly not unusual in the least.
Congratulations to all the nominees.
