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 ..."

New 3 Chicks Review Comics with Jen Van Meter

The title of this podcast has two lies in it this week - there are only two chicks reviewing one comic. Kelly and I were a bit under the weather and we both adore Jen Van Meter so just made the whole show about Jen.

I hope you picked up the first issue of her reboot of Dr. Mirage but perhaps this interview and review will push you do just that!

We also take about Jen’s other work including Hopeless Savages and Kickstarters.

So please give us a listen and leave a comment.

Help Bring Back the 3 Chicks Podcast!

Over the last months Kelly and I have received so many notes asking what happened to the 3 Chicks Review Comics podcast on CBR’s Comics Should Be Good. Our hiatus mostly ihad to do with Kelly being focused on her Kickstarter for her novel Storykiller  (which you can buy now on Kelly’s store). But it was also because our hosting service was causing us problems and the price was a little beyond the funds the site brings in. The equation is this:

Amount of money we make on podcast = $00.00

Amount of money it costs to to make podcast (including hosting, software and comics) $250 minimum per year. 

Kelly and I went back and forth on moving forward and will be able to cover some of it but thought that given the number of folks who enjoyed it we would throw open the donation jar.

If you feel like throwing a few dollars to the cause you can donate on Kelly’s 1979Semifinalist site - just scroll down the page and hit the donate button on the left hand side.

We’ve busy lining up guests for our return which with your help should happen in the next weeks.

We even have a new logo by Caanan!

Thanks in advance for any assistance!
