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

Boston Comic Con Commission Story #3: X-Men #1 Jam

I’m a big fan of Marvel’s new X-Men by Brian Wood. A few weeks ago I bought a sketch cover of the first issuet hought it might fun to ask different artists at Boston Comic Con to draw one of the X-Men on the sketch cover.

Of course, I really had no idea how this was going to work. Lucky for me as I was waiting for another commission, I told Marvel artist Brandon Peterson what I was trying to do. He said for it to work I needed someone to rough out a layout so each artists would know where to draw. Of course, I thought and then wondered to myself who could do that. Before I even think of the answer he offered to do it and to draw one of the characters.

So here’s the first sketch - Storm by Brandon Peterson

I then stopped and saw Ming Doyle, who given that she was DRESSED as Jubilee, was more than willing to draw the character.

When I saw Phil Jimenez not only did he draw that great Donna Troy for me, he also did a sketch of  Kitty Pryde (she is phasing into the cover)

Amy Reeder was next and she took on Rogue.

And Aaron Lopresti was nice enough to do Psylocke.

The last sketch was Rachel Grey and George Perez did the duties

And here’s the finished piece:

This was a lot of fun and I want to thank all the artists who made it happen and in particular Brandon Peterson who did the layout.
