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

Comics to Buy This Week

There’s some goodbyes in this week that make me sad. But for every ending, there is a beginning so I’m starting with a first issue, that many of you probably have on your radar:

There are 53 different covers for this but I do digital so I’m just going to get the one above. I have mixed feelings about this book. On one hand it has some great female characters - Catwoman, Katana and Stargirl. But it also has an artist who I can find frustrating when it comes to drawing women. I’ll report back later with some thoughts.

As I posted yesterday, this is the last issue for a long time for J.H. Williams and the conclusion of the Wonder Woman arc.

I will support this book until they pull it from hands! 

I’m sad but not surprised this has been cancelled. That price point was all wrong for the book. But I’m going to finish out the run.

This ends the run of Duane Swierczynski. Although his run suffered a bit  from cross-overs and the silly decision to bounce Jesus Saiz off the book, I enjoyed his run. And he created the best new character of the new 52 - Starling. Thanks Duane!

I’m still sticking with this book hoping that Nocenti gets in her groove (or the groove she got for Katana).

There hasn’t been a bad issue yet.

What’s on your list?

    Dammit, I didn’t hear that Amethyst was cancelled. That’s disappointing. I was really enjoying it.

    No more JH Williams art on Batwoman and Amethyst cancelled? Aw man. Beautiful cover for Captain Marvel though.
