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 #9

DC has given Maxim its exclusive preview of Batwoman in another of the baffling choices they make on these things.

This is the first issue for new artist Trevor McCarthy since Amy Reeder left the book. Kate looks good.

Batwomen of Two Worlds by Andy Price

Kate Kane is in Batman, Inc. #4 out this week and the original Batwoman, Kathy Kane, will also be appearing. I like this which is based on the Flash of Two Worlds cover.

A sketch card I recently finished of Batwoman.  This was drawn for fun, I love Kate Kane.  This picture measures 3.5 x 2.5 inches.

Love this - so good! Kate looks so happy and confident.

Five DC Dads Who Kick Ass

The other day in honor of Father’s Day I posted about bad dads who need to get their ass kicked. Today I’m highlighting five “dads” who deserve some love and hugs.

Pat Dugan, step-dad to Courtney Whitmore/Stargirl. Pat Dugan was, Stripsey, the sidekick to Star-Spangled Kid during WW II. When his step-daughter Courtney Whitmore decided to fight crime as the new Star-Spangled Kid, Pat once again became Stripsey accompanying the teenage girl on her adventures. That suit is hot and isn’t Pat old? What a dad.

Ted Grant and the JSA, surrogate dads to Dinah Laurel Lance. Dinah had a dad, Larry Lance, but she also “uncles” that served with her Mom in the JSA. Ted Grant, Wildcat, still serves as a father figure for Dinah. He trained her as a child, has gone on missions with her to provide back-up and held her hand when Dinah’s partner, Barbara Gordon, laid in the hospital fighting for her life. I wish we could see some more “Uncle Ted” and Dinah time on panel. 

Black Lighting, dad of Thunder and Lighting. Jefferson Pierce has been doubly blessed with two daughters who wanted to follow him into the family business although that’s not exactly what he wanted. His oldest daughter, Anissa, was told to finish college first. And once she did she signed on as Thunder fighting with the Outsiders. Younger daughter Jennifer is now with the JSA. I’d love to see the three of them team-up someday when Thunder is out of her coma.

Colonel Jake Kane, dad of Kate Kane/Batwoman. Jake is a military man who raised his daughter after his wife and other daughter were murdered. When his daughter chose to leave the military, Jake, who had also served, stood by her. When she decided to fight crime, he designed her costume. And when she goes into the field, he is usually not far behind her. Truly, Colonel Kane has his daughter’s back.

Jim Gordon, dad of Barbara Gordon. Whenever these two interact you can see the love and respect they have for each other. Jim may or may not be Barbara’s biological father, and he wasn’t her father for the first few years of her life, but being a dad isn’t just about those things. It’s about being there when your daughter needs you supporting her in her endeavors and loving her for who she is no matter how surprising a revelation that may be.

K is for Kate Kane who kicks as as Batwoman. Kate Kane survived a childhood tragedy and, like her father and mother, chose to serve her country in the military. Unwilling to live her life as a lie due to her sexuality, Kate left the military. She now serves as a caped crime fighter in Gotham. Taking her costume’s inspiration from Batman, Kate Kane patrols the night as Batwoman. Kate’s origin story can be seen Batwoman:Elegy which is released in trade format next month. If you haven’t been reading Batwoman, I highly recommend it. She will have her own ongoing title later this year.

Kate Kane kicks ass as Batwoman. Looking forward to her having her own book although a little concerned about Greg Rucka no longer being at the helm. Hoping J.H Williams can pull it off.
