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 ..."

New details on Simone’s Batgirl

Gail Simone revealed new details about the new Batgirl title she is writing at a SDCC panel this afternoon. Via  Newsarama:

- Jim Gordon will be in the cast

- Dick Grayson will have a big role in her life

- Another cast member is an unnamed family member

- “She has her own struggles during the day, a young woman just out of college, extremely brilliant”

- “The Killing Joke did happen, and we’re going to go through how she got from where she was to where she is now”

- “There are also things in the story of her dealing with the fact that she WAS disabled and how life is for her now”

- "She has gotten an advanced degree several years ahead of what an average person would’ve done"

- “She has a cool personal life, cool supporting cast, cool night life”
