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

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.

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.

Another all-ages DC pitch; a Batty Betty and Veronica

Last night I posted a pitch for an all-ages DC book with Bat-Mite characters by Garry Black. The same artist also pitched a Betty and Veronica type book with Barbara Gordon and Selina.

I don’t know how this would work, but I love this image.
