So I posted an interview about women and comics this week that got a little bit of interest. But here are some other interviews about women and comics that I recommend reading.
If you haven’t put the blog “Green Lanterns Butts Forever” on your reading list, I highly recommend it. I’ve never said this but it was one of the few blogs I looked at as a model when launching mine. The woman who runs the blog Sally has given an interview here. Go give it a read.
Lots of SDCC cosplay pictures are floating around the net this week but none are more enjoyable than the cross dressing Rule 63 Justice League. LA Weekly has an interview with the Tallest Silver the woman who put the group together:
“We try to keep it pretty scantily clad for [the men] because that’s how women are portrayed,” says Silver. “We weren’t scantily clad for ourselves because that’s not the point. We’re showing that girls can be clothed and be superheroes because, most of the time, they aren’t.”
Go read and and see some more new pictures including this Green Arrow.
Fantastic Fangirls is another site you should be checking out regularly. The four women who run the site Anika, Caroline, Jennifer and Sigrid provide a diverse set of intelligent opinions on women and comics. Every week they do a “Fan Girl Friday” and this week it is my fellow female blogger Lisa Fortuner aka Ragnell who blogs at Written World and also is on Tumblr. I may not agree with Lisa all the time but there is not denying she is one of the sharpest people now writing about comics. Go read what she has to say.
