DC Women Kicking Ass

Thoughts, pictures, reviews and other stuff about the women in comics who kick ass.
"... 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 ..." -Nerdbastards.com

Happy 100th Birthday, Lucille Ball

Today is the 100th anniversary of Lucille Ball’s birth. Lucy, as she became known around the world, was one of the first female television stars. She was also the first female to head a major Hollywood studio, Desilu productions. As president of Desilu she was responsible for approving the production of the original Star Trek series.

The show she did following I Love Lucy, was one of the first to have two female leads. The Lucy Show starred Ball and Vivian Vance, her I Love Lucy co-star, as two single mothers.

But most importantly Lucy was smart and funny. While the situations she was caught in in her TV shows reflect a different era, the talent of one of Hollywood’s most talented women shines through.

Today’s Google doodle is a tribute to Lucy - a television on which you can watch some of her most famous moments.

Here’s one moment that’s perfect for this blog:

Lucy has dressed up like Superman for her son’s birthday party only to meet George Reeves who played Superman on TV.

And to continue to the tie to DC, here are some stills from “Lois and Clark” where a dream sequence has Lois and Clark imagining themselves as Lucy and Ricky.

    I Love Lucy is the First of Two Shows I I Loved (The Other is The Honeymooners). I was Far Too Young to Truly Understand...
