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

DC To Celebrate Batman’s Anniversary in 2014; No Female Creators Named

Turns out that glass ceiling on writing and drawing Batman is going to take a few more batarangs to totally shatter. Last year Becky Cloonan became the first woman to ever draw the Batman book. This year we saw Marguerite Bennett write the Batman Annual #2. Nicola Scott also worked on Batman Black and White and her version of Batman was turned into a statue.

So promising.

That’s why I was very dissappointed to read the article in USA Today this morning about Eternal, a new weekly Batman series coming in 2014 and Detective #27 which will celebrate the 75th annivesary of 1939’s Detective 27 which introduced the world to Batman.

Why? Because with the Eternal series, headed up by Scott Snyder,will, according to the article have.

a revolving crew of Bat-writers including James Tynion IV (Talon), John Layman (Detective Comics), Ray Fawkes (Justice League Dark) and Tim Seeley (Revival).

Lady free, in other words.

And Detective #27? The issue:

showcases an all-star lineup including writers Paul Dini, Brad Meltzer, Gregg Hurwitz and Peter Tomasi and illustrators Neal Adams, Dustin Nguyen and Francesco Francavilla.

Plus, Adams, Jim Lee, Batman series artist Greg Capullo, Chris Burnham, Kelley Jones, Patrick Gleason and Mike Allred are among those drawing covers for the issue.

Again, female free.

Who should they be hiring? Is that what you’re asking me?

Well, Gail Simone and Dynamite have managed to find a female artists to draw multiple covers and variants for four issues of Red Sonja, so I’d start there for artists.

Again, given the strides we saw over the last two years, I’m really disappointed. Sadly, however, not surprised.
