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

Worlds’ Finest to See Creative Changes as First Year Closes

Worlds’ Finest will see changes when it passes its first birthday in May. Kevin Maguire announced at last night’s New 52 panel he’s off the book with issue 12. Maguire co-drew the book with George Perez first in alternating sections of the book and later on alternating issues.

Maguire’s art was one of the highlights of the book. No word on whether Perez is leaving as well or who will be replacing Maguire. I’d love to see Marcos To back to drawing Helena.

Issue 10 of the book is out on Wednesday and it is the first Batbook to address the loss of Damian including an almost meeting between this world’s Batman and Huntress.

Cover and Solicit for Worlds’ Finest #12: The Boob Window is Back

Not sure what the thinking is but the cover and solicit for May’s Worlds’ Finest shows and says the “classic” Power Girl costume is back. 

As Power Girl returns to her classic look, DeSaad wreaks havoc on her tech empire—and PG and Huntress find themselves hunted by the talented torturer from Apokolips.

Given how truly unattractive the other costume was and its propensity for being torn off to show even more than the classic “boob window” did, I can’t say I’m unpleased.

I just hope there isn’t some kind of cosmic adjustment required that will bring back the “belly window” costume for Helena.

Cover and Solicit for Worlds’ Finest #15

More Helena and Damian shenanigans though Helena seems to be getting the worst of it.

1:25 B&W Variant cover by KEVIN MAGUIRE

• Robin begrudgingly helps Huntress track down the threat to Wayne Enterprises, but little do they realize that threat is actually tracking them!

• Meanwhile, Power Girl continues to explore the connection between Earth 2, Apokolips and this Earth, only to find herself in a stand-off with…a bunch of heavily armed 10-year-olds?!

Preview for Worlds’ Finest 0 Shows Earth 2 Catwoman; Lois Lane Still Dead

DC Comics has released a preview of the Worlds’ Finest Zero issue and there is both great joy and great annoyance.

First the great joy. I really like the reworking of Helena’s Wayne’s origins as Robin having her mother, Catwoman, acting as a mentor. The original Earth 2 Helena Wayne took up the  cape after the death of her mother. In this universe we see Catwoman as a proud parent.

Of course, Bruce doesn’t quite see things the same way.

For every window that closes, a new one opens

Those of you who bemoan the loss of the iconic boob window of the pre-52 Power Girl were thrown a tiny (well not exactly tiny - this IS Power Girl) bone this week. Apparently with all the money she’s spending on research Karen Starr is still unable to find a uniform that doesn’t self destruct in battle (and in apparently, as in this case, only in certain places). As a result in this week’s issue we see this

As far as the rest of the issue I’ve decided that while I like the relationship between Kara and Helena (however you choose to read it) and Kevin Maguire’s take on the two in the early years, it is working against some boring villains and some just not quite right art by Perez. 

Still this issue did have a couple of things (beyond a salute to the boob window) that were fun. Let’s take a look.

Preview of Worlds’ Finest # 4

I love George Perez’s work on so many comics but this isn’t working for me. I really wish Jesus Saiz or Marcos To were on the book.

Anyway onto the Rizzoli and Isles of superhero comics where sub and text blend as easy as a summer day and a gin and tonic.

Preview of Worlds’ Finest #3 and a little about what’s ahead for Karen and Helena

USA Today has an interview with the Paul Levitz of Worlds Finest about the book and what readers can expect coming up:

The new issues also feature an aspect that fans are really enjoying: the relationship between Huntress and Power Girl.

As they deal with assorted dilemmas, Levitz is slowly revealing more about the women’s backstories — in issue 3, Maguire’s stuck in “a lovely moment of fan service” for dedicated longtime readers, and a zero issue drawn entirely by Maguire in September flashes back to when the two first met as Robin and Supergirl.

Levitz also teases to the fifth issue, a “light one-off” featuring Power Girl at the CERNparticle accelerator in Switzerland and Huntress in Boston Common at a “Take Back the Night” event. “They’re seeing different ways to deal with their displaced status.”

They will also have Helena reacting to the fact there is a Robin on this Earth. I can’t wait for that. I will jump for joy if she refers to him as a “boy Robin”

Here’s the preview
