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 ..." -Nerdbastards.com

The new Batgirl Art and Artist Are Both Awesome!
Despite the debut of her Batgirl still being a few months away, Babs Tarr’s booth was very busy and popular stop this weekend at Boston Comic Con. 
I spoke to her a few times during the con and she gave me a bit of background on how she got the gig which involved DC looking at multiple artists. Tarr’s name ended up on multiple writers lists. Tarr who was living in a hotel room in Providence working for Hasbro on toy designs was then called in to do some layouts and finally given the gig.
You’ve probably noticed from the official images DC has released to date her art is much different looking than the DC house style. Tarr gave me a sneak peek at few pages of the colored art from the first issue and it looks fantastic and indeed much different than we usually see at the publisher.
I’ve been told that Barbara will be much more of a detective in this book and the art I saw emphasizes that. 
And given my large collection of Batgirl sketches how could I not get a sketch from one of her newest artists? Tarr described it as “Babs being sassy.”
