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 ..."

Is October Boobtober for DC this year?

did an interview with Wired this week and they asked me what I thought DC did wrong when it came to female characters. Here’s what I said:

If I had to pick the most obvious thing they do wrong is they let artists go crazy with the sexualized poses and ridiculous body shapes. Not all women have huge boobs. Most women do not stand so you can see both their ass and their boobs. No matter how great the writing is on a book, I still wince, as do many other readers both male and female, when they see that kind of art in a book.

And here we are less than 48 hours later with the October solicits. Yesterday we saw the cover for Jason Todd and the Outlaws #2 which featured this:

And now we have the cover for Suicide Squad #2 which features this:

And now here’s the full cover to SS #2

Remember that first cover?

But the time we get to the fourth cover, Harley may be flashing her headlights.

There was more boobalocity on other covers.

And we aren’t haven’t seen them all the solicits. Yikes!

  15. drunkenmonkstyle said: Just like every dude has an impossible body. I don’t really see people complaining about that.
