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

Batgirls: Hope Prevails by Dave Reynolds

I would love to see an all Batgirl title. I like that the artist made it a digital comic and $1.99. So who would buy this?

A chat with former Batgirl writer Barbara Randall Kesel: “I just wanted to read stories where the women didn’t embarrass me”

Barbara Randall Kesel is one of the key writers in building the history and character of Barbara Gordon at DC Comics. While Kesel didn’t write many stories that included Barbara, the ones she did write are seminal. Among among them the post-Crisis origin story “Flawed Gems” which was named one of the most memorable moments for DC women earlier this year and the “Last Batgirl story” the only standalone Batgirl comic published prior to The Killing Joke. Kesel also wrote the Elseworlds: Batgirl/Supergirl special and she has the rare distinction of writing Barbara Gordon as both Batgirl and Oracle.

Earlier this week I interviewed Barbara about her work on how she got started writing at DC, her work on Barbara Gordon both pre and post The Killing Joke (including her follow-up pitch for Barbara Gordon that was passed over to have her become Oracle) and what it was like being a female creator during the 80s at DC and how things have changed since then.

Book Review: Batgirl: The Greatest Stories Ever Told

For years, I’ve heard claims that Barbara Gordon as Batgirl was a second-tier comic character who had no good stories. Late last year DC published the trade Batgirl:The Greatest Stories Ever Told. Will this trade dispel that claim?

I don’t think I’ve ever seen this Adam Hughes Babs as Batgirl. I wonder if it was a model for a statue. I love the bat.

"Once called Batgirl"

One of my favorite portraits of Barbara Gordon as Oracle by the talented 89g.

Yes I know there are handles. I’m ignoring them for prettiness.

From a series Comics Should be Good is doing on heroes then and now. The detail is great - read the titles of the books. Caanan Grall is the artist for this one. Here is his website.
