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 ..."

But it turns out the Dark Knight’s troubles are just beginning when a mysterious woman named Penumbra emerges from the shadows to confront him on his home turf.

DC also named Jason Fabrok artist. Here’s a look at his cover for issue #13 the team’s first issue.

I’m looking foward to seeing what Layman cooks up. Detective needs some new, innovative blood.

Preview for Detective Comics #877

I’ve going to keep saying it until I’ve converted you all. Snyder’s run on ‘Tec to date has been one of the best runs on the book recently and I believe will be a legendary run. And this issue looks to be no exception. I complain about alternating artists on books, but in the case of ‘Tec the alternating of Franco Francavilla and Jock has been all pleasure and no pain.

Here’s a page of Jock’s art from tomorrow’s issue. You can see the rest of the preview at the Source. (But I do have one nit. They ruined Jock’s cover by putting a banner of RR as Hal Jordan. )
