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

Preview of Batwoman #24: Bat vs. Bat

The Batwoman vs. Batman arc is underway and writer J.H. Williams III says it will be take a while and won’t be a typical superhero vs. superhero story. 

"In some ways, what she has over him is she thinks radically differently than he does," he says. "The way she problem-solves is different than what he does. And on an emotional component, in some ways Batman is a bit of a machine, and she’s certainly not that. But whether she’s better matched than he is, that’s the question we’re going to be answering."

Williams also says that they’ll be more revealed about the relationship between Maggie and Kate.

"The way Maggie discovered who Kate Kane is as Batwoman was a bit of a jarring incident, and even though they’re engaged, they’ve had some trust issues to explore and figure out can they make this work," Williams says. "They love each other and they want to try and make it work."

Preview of Batwoman #19

We find out who that mysterious person Cameron Chase met up with in the last issue and its a nice revelation for those who have read the Chase series. 

I think the WTF panel of the cover reveal isn’t nearly as WTFky than others I’ve seen.

Preview of Batwoman 17: Say Goodbye to J.H. Williams’ Art

Batwoman #17 is out tomorrow and it is the last issue for the foreseeable future with J.H. Williams III on art (he’ll continue to co-write the book with Haden Blackman.) While I think Trevor McCarthy has been doing a good job handing art on the alternating issues, the loss of Williams is a significant one. Williams has been the signature artist on the character since her arc in Detective Comics almost four years ago. He created the character’s post 52 look and has been the creator associated with the character the longest. I am going to greatly miss his art on this book.

Here’s a look at the issue also wraps up the arc with Wonder Woman.
