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 ..." -Nerdbastards.com

Never, Ever Get Between Lois Lane and a Story

Super Best Friends Forever, Wonder Woman, Thunder and Lighting and Amethyst are all DC Nation shorts that have given the women of DC Comics the love they  deserve. And one woman who really does need some love right now is Lois Lane. And DC Nation delivers.

If We Put Them on Everything They’ll Have to Do SOMETHING: Zazzle Opens Super Best Friends Forever Store

Over a few months of hearing nothing about the ESBUFFS (aka Super Best Friends Forever) there’s been two signs that the series may not be dead and gone.

The SBFF are, of course, the trinity of Supergirl, Wonder Girl and Batgirl from the fantastic animated short series done by Lauren Faust for DC Nation. Unfortunately Cartoon Network only made a few shorts and Faust then told me she wasn’t available to do more. But she also told me, “Who knows what the future holds?”

Earlier this week, DC Comics unveiled their SDCC exclusives and the SBFF were included. And then yesterday DC unveiled the SBFF Zazzle store where you can buy just about anything with the SBFF on it including mouse pads, mugs, phone cases, and, of course, t-shirts. You can get all the SBFF together. (And in different poses).

You can get 20% off everything by using SUPERHEROBFF.

So what does this mean for the SBFF. Earlier this week when the SDCC pieces appeared I put out a cry for a digital comic from DC trying to drive the demand for it. Faust told me that "there’s always a chance it could happen, BTW…

So here’s what we do. Tell DC you want a digital comic with the SBFF’s! Buy the stuff from Zazzle! And eat Burritos. No wait, do the other two things. 

If they are offering merchandise there is a chance. Let’s make it into a reality!

DC Unveils SDCC Exclusives; I Know What I’m Getting

DC has unveiled its exclusives for SDCC. You can see them all at USA Today but I’ll show the one that I’ll be getting. Oh yes, I will.

Behold the ESSBUFFS!

It’s pricey - $49.99 but I simply must have it. Of course, I’d rather have an ongoing series with these three by Lauren Faust, but I don’t think that’s going to happen. How about a digital comic? Anyone?

Thunder and Lighting Come to DC Nation!

Amethyst, Amethyst and Amethyst!

And suddenly everything is Amethyst. Last week the new 52 comic Sword of Sorcery debuted. It’s expected that this week the new DC Nation short will debut and earlier this week an alternative pitch by the woman behind Womanthology Renae De Liz was posted.

Not bad for a character created almost 30 years ago and gone from comics for 25 years. I’ve got a review of the comic, images and character descriptions from DC Nation and artwork from De Liz’s pitch.  So where shall I start? (warning: mention of sexual violence).

Catwoman gets a DC Nation Short

Way back in April I posted that Catwoman would be getting a DC Nation short. And this morning, when everyone thought the season was over, it appeared. The short is by Wolf Smoke from China and it is done in an anime style. And set in the past. And look for a quick nod to a villain appearing with Catwoman on the big screen.
