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 ..."

What a Great FCBD!

Did you go and celebrate Free Comic Book Day? I did and had a blast!

I (along with DCWKA, jr.) headed up to Double Midnight Comics in Manchester, NH. These folks help put on the Granite State Con which I’ve attended a few times and it gets better every year. Their shop is great - big, well lit and friendly to all. They run a monthly Ladies Night as well. If you are in the area, stop in.

The place was mobbed when I got there with a line out the door and down the parking lot.


They were there for comics and to meet these two comic ladies:


The line was filled with male and female comics fans with comics for Gail Simone and Marjorie Liu to sign including my pal/guest poster Jon Christianson.

There other comic creators there too. I spoke to the Shelli Paroline and Braden Lamb who are the illustrators of the Adventure Time series. Both are pleased with the success of the book. 


There were cosplayers everywhere. I posted a lot of images yesterday  so take a look.

I also picked up a bunch of trades on sale:


And two Eaglemoss figures:


I was so excited to find that Renee figure; she will go on the same shelf as my Batwoman figure.

I also picked up lots of FCBD comics for the kids as well as DC’s sneak peak at Futures End and Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy. I liked one of those comics.

I ended the day with drinks and dinner with GeekMom’s Corinna Lawson.

How was your FCBD? What comics did you like? Any trades or other things you were excited to nab?
