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

From the Source 7/29

Over the past week we’ve heard from fans about a need for more women writers, artists and characters. We want you to know, first and foremost, that we hear you and take your concerns very seriously.

We’ve been very fortunate in recent years to have fan favorite creators like Gail Simone, Amy Reeder, Felicia Henderson, Fiona Staples, Amanda Connor, G. Willow Wilson and Nicola Scott write and draw the adventures of the World’s Greatest Super Heroes …

… We’ll have exciting news about new projects with women creators in the coming months and will be making those announcements closer to publication. Many of the above creators will be working on new projects, as we continue to tell the ongoing adventures of our characters. We know there are dozens of other women creators and we welcome the opportunity to work with them.

Our recent announcements have generated much attention and discussion and we welcome that dialogue.

Best-

Jim Lee & Dan DiDio
DC Entertainment Co-Publishers

What more can I say? One female creator at NYCC? If you’re going to talk the talk you gotta walk the walk.

Amy Reeder rocks. Glad to see her on the list. Would love to see her on more than just alternating Batwoman arcs.

    I wish my job would send me to NYCC. But, because I’m not a manager, that is a very farfetched ambition.
  9. skeletonfun said: I work for NYCC. If there’s one group I hate working with, it’s DC. As much as I love some DC works very much, the people DC sends to work at our conventions are the WORST. And just one woman? It’s better than what they usually send… :/
  10. ladiesmakingcomics said: To be fair, it’s not exactly like they can force creators to leave their homes and families for a long weekend, but yeah, one woman seems rather paltry offerings.
  11. ladytalon1 said: They should just leave Dan DiDio home. Chained up to the radiator.

    That’s the best news I’ve heard in a while. Hopefully, I can get to NYCC this year and meet some female “comic-book...
