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

It Was Double New Lady Writers at DC Comics This Week

This week Maguerite Bennett made her debut as a writer in the DCU with the Batman Annual #2 and became part of a very small group in comics - women who have written Batman. If you didn’t pick it up the annual I recommend you do - it was very good.

But it there was another female writer debuting in the DCU this week. Nicole Dubuc made her debut writing a back-up for the Flash Annual. Dubuc ihas extra cred to bring to the table as a writer of the Flash; she wrote for Young Justice and also voiced Iris West-Allen on that show.

Dubuc joins an even smaller group than Bennett and is the first woman to write a Flash comic. 

Hard to believe in a world where Louise Simonson was once headwriter on Superman, Devin Grayson had her own Batman book and Mindy Newell and Gail Simone have written Wonder Woman, that in 2013 we are just getting our first female Flash writer - on a guest spot in an annual.

But the door has been opened. Let’s hope it leads to more.

    I’m surprised nobody has figured out how much girl’s love Batman yet. Some lady created Batman baddies would be pretty...
