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 ..."

Earth 2’s Sam and Alan Scott: a great couple …

… of pages.

For those of you who bet that Robinson introduced Alan Scott’s boyfriend so he could kill him off and give Alan the angst required to become the Green Lantern …YOU WIN! Below see the preview of the third issue.

Eh, it’s not like I didn’t see this coming like a bullet train. I mean Lois was killed off page in the first issue just to give Superman a page of angst.

Pretty art by Nicola Scott, of course.

Is James Robinson paying tribute to Pink Floyd/Wizard of Oz connection in JSA?

The Source just posted a preview of the JLA/JSA crossover he’s written and take a look at this page. Green Lantern and Obsidian have just arrived in an Emerald City or as Todd refers to it “a fairy tale on drugs”. But beyond the Emerald City reference there’s Alan’s comment that “… the moon’s dark side is a very special place.”

Pink Floyd’s “Dark Side of the Moon” and the soundtrack to the movie “The Wizard of Oz” famously synchonize. Oh, and if that isn’t enough, note there are two flying monkeys in the first panel.

Update: I asked Robinson over Twitter if he was paying tribute and his answer was, “Absolutely”.
