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

Favorite DC Couples Finals: The Case for Superman and Lois Lane

As usual during these tournaments, I requested guest posts to provide the case for why the finalists for in the matches to decide your favorite DC couple should win today.

Children Being Fed Classic DC Continuity!

As I was shopping last week I noticed in the aisle devoted to children’s “fruit” snacks (i.e. gummy candy with fruit juice) that there was a new addition.

I’m not surprised to see new Superman merchandise given there is a big budget movie out this summer, but, as you can see this, this Superman is not wearing New 52 or movie costume but the classic costume.

And there is something else classic IN the package as well!
