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

Renee Montoya Continues her Adventures as the Question in Fan Created Comic

During SDCC DC Comics confirmed that Renee Montoya won’t be showing up in the new 52. Not surprising actually as the writer most associated with her, Greg Rucka, has said that his conversations with DC "made it very clear they had no interest in seeing Renee continue, either as the Question or not."

But not to fear Renee fans because today I bring you part two of the quite simply terrific fan made comic, Tattered Remains, which I posted about last year. The comic by the team of artist Krystal Beisick and writer Valerie Renee continues Renee’s adventures in a pre-52 Gotham where the Barbara Gordon as Oracle still exists and is working with the Birds, including Helena “not a fake ID burned on page” Bertinelli.

And like last year’s edition, it is an absolute joy to read. This edition has Renee revisiting key moments in her past. Here’s a look:

If you’re familiar with Renee from Gotham Central and Batwoman you’re going to enjoy especially enjoy this as it addresses some plot points from those titles.

So go read part 2 of Tattered Remains. And if you haven’t read part one, here’s a link to that.

October Madness: contestants for match-up #13 to decide the most kick-ass DC woman

The winner of today’s very close contest was Black Canary. Sorry Vixen fans. I have something coming up for you very soon.

Tomorrow’s match-up is has two woman from two different worlds.

In this corner a woman who has superior detective skills. A woman who is very comfortable around Bats. A woman who finds the way to truth isn’t always about the answers as much as it is the questions

The Question, Renee Montoya.

And in the other corner a woman who has one of the worst fathers ever but yet chose a career where the credo is to “first do no harm”. A woman who serves bravely and fiercely as a Green Lantern. A woman whose love truly saved Kyle Raynor.

Soranik Natu.

Voting opens at 8am EST.

Absolutely amazing cosplay of Helena/Huntress and Vic/TheQuestion, I am assuming this is following Justice League Unlimited’s “Double Date.” That Huntress is perfect and, bonus, she doesn’t seem to be wearing the belly window version of the costume.

No question that Renee Montoya kicks ass. Who will write her now that Greg Rucka has left DC? Marc Andreyko? Gail Simone? I hope they announce someone soon.
