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’s Forever Evil: How did Female Creators Do?

The last big event that DC did prior to the new 52 was Flashpoint which distinguished itself in many ways including that out of 46 creative credits only one was a woman, Sandra Hope who did cover inking. 

When the new 52 was there was further concern when the total number of female creators across all 52 titles consisted of Gail Simone writing two books (Batgirl and Firestorm) Amy Reeder on Batwoman covers and Jenny Frison on iVampire covers.

Forever Evil is a huge event. In September the publisher will have 52 issues that will have villain on the cover. It will also have a seven issue mini series, Forever Evil, written by Geoff Johns and drawn by David Finch.

That’s a lot of writers and artists.

Just for the 52 issues appearing in September the number of credits is mind-boggling. I counted more than 150 credits and that includes the 20 artists that will be participating in Justice League #23.3: Dial E

With only six of the artists announced for that issue, here’s the total on female creators.

Total female creators credits for Forever Evil announced to date:


Total female credits for writers: 


Ann Nocenti (Justice League Dark #23.1: The Creeper and Batman: The Dark Knight #23.1: Joker’s Daughter)

Gail Simone (Batman: The Dark Knight #23.1:The Ventriloquist)

Marguerite Bennett (Justice League #23.2: Lobo)

Total female credits for art:

That’s right 0. With 52 different covers and 52 books to be drawn, the total number of female artists with credits (that have been announced) is 0.

Please let me know if I have missed a credit. I’m rather stunned that there is not one female artist on the 52 books. 

No Nicola Scott. No Amanda Conner. No Jenny Frison. No Emanuela Lupacchino. No Becky Cloonan. No Adriana Melo.

All artists who have worked in the new 52. And there are many, many artists out there who haven’t.

You’d think there would be one who could draw a male or female villain.
