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

Comics to Read Today, 2/5

So we have a big first issue this week and I wrote a bit about it and posted the preview here. I’m very, very excited about this book so go out and support it!

image

Two female superheroes - including a legacy of the other - what’s not to love?

And speaking of female superheroes from Marvel

image

Have you been enjoying this? Gah I love Noto’s art.

Remember how people were all excited for Mighty Avengers but then they put Greg Land on art and everyone who is not a fan of porn tracing was like “I’m out”? 

I have most excellent news for you! Valerio Schiti who did the art of Immonen’s Journey into Mystery with Sif is now on the book and he is AMAZING. I can’t wait to read this book now! So go give it a try - where else are you going to get your fix of Monica Rambeau and Jessica Jones (neither of who are on this cover … just say’n - also don’t be afraid - again Land is only on covers now)

image

Loki, Loki, Loki. I know some people adore him. And now he has a comic all his own. I’m not in the “adore” category but I do have to give them props for a book where the main character whose sexuality will be fluid. And that makes two Al Ewing books on the list this week.

image

Awesome Jenny Frison cover.

Let’s jump over to Image because there’s a new issue of Lazarus out!

image

So, so good.

This is the final issue of Batman Black and White but given these are standalone stories - I’m going to pick it up. It’s got a story by Cliff Chiang and Becky Cloonan sowhatelsedoIneedtotellyou?

image

The Joker’s Daughter hasn’t really worked for me but this issue may turn me around. 

image

Have you been reading Trillium? You really should.

image

The Movement gets a guest star this week - hope it helps the sales of this book.

image

I’ve been staying away from Earth 2 for a variety of reasons but this issue I’m gong to try based on this:

image

That’s three female characters on the cover including two women of color. I’m in - at least for this issue.

I am going to look for the Cat cover variant of X-Men because it is awesome. 

So that’s it for me - If you can buy just one comic this week I’d say buy Ms. Marvel

For those of you who aren’t familiar with buying online you can go to Comixology.com and purchase the digital copy.

The Best Thing You’ll See (or Potentially Eat) All Day
Don’t you love these Female Superhero Cookies of the Marvel and DC variety? These are made by a bakery called Audrey’s which I believe is in Taiwan. I wonder if they ship international?

Batman.
He’s not the hero Gotham needs, but he is one that Gotham desires.

If the cover of Batman #1 had been like Catwoman #1.

First look DC and Marvel Lego Figures for 2012

AT SDCC, both DC and Marvel signed up with Lego to license their line to Lego. And now here’s a peek at some of the first figures.

First up DC. We saw the Batman figure previewed at SDCC but that Joker is a new addition.

And here Marvel’s figures.

I think I can feel the money pouring out of my pocket …

Zatanna confirmed for “Young Justice”

We knew this was coming after promotional playing cards from SDCC showed the character, but we now have confirmation:

Young Justice
Friday, October 21st, 2011 at 6:30pm (ET) - “#15 Humanity”
The Team is on the hunt for Red Tornado, determined to find out once and for all whether the robot was the mole – even if it means kidnapping new friend Zatanna and dragging her along on their quest!

Joe Kubert.

Happy 82nd Birthday Joe!
I was lucky to meet Joe at the Boston Comic Con this year. He was quite the dapper gentleman. When I mentioned that it was nice to see a third generation of the family at DC (his granddaughter Katie is an assistant editor) his face lit up as only a grandfather’s can.

Justice League #4 // Jim Lee

Oh look it’s Aquaman on the cover of Justice League #4. And it looks like Bats has gone down by Trident. Wonder how the Bat forums are going to take that?

Just a Bad Dream; latest commission from Mike Kevan 
(for those below a certain age, you may need a reference.)

Lois channels the famous “It was all a dream” sequence from the TV show Dallas (click the link above) that wiped away a year of the show.

Golden Age Birds of Prey. For the DC Fifty Too blog project

This is wonderful! It reminds me a bit of the never published Birds of Prey newspaper comic by Chuck Dixon.

Fun comic books we’ll probably never see. Spoiler and Black Bat? Maybe.
