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.

" ... a phenomenal blog that's always up to date with female superhero news ..."

Here she is as a pirate in Justice League “Elsewords” tale from a couple of years ago.

And, of course, the infamous “Space Pirate” storyline from Messner-Loebs’ run:

And finally here’s a lovely portrait of Wonder Woman as a pirate by Brent Peeples
