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 ..."

The Wonder Woman/Xena comic that never happened

I saw this mentioned on Twitter this morning and I don’t think I ever posted about it. Many years ago writer Beau Smith was commissioned to do a DC Comics/Dark Horse cross over with Wonder Woman and Xena. The project got to some art pages by Eduardo Barreto and a script. The project was killed by an incoming Dan Didio due to Xena ending its television run. But here’s a link where you can see some pages and read the outline. I know a few pros including Gail Simone read the script and loved it.

Wonder Woman vs. Xena: the comic

It’s Lucy Lawless’ birthday and I have declared her an honorary DC women who kicks ass. Ragnell has just reminded me of the proposed Wonder Woman/Xena crossover comic that Beau Smith did back in 2001. It’s a fun script and yet another thing that makes you scratch you head and go “huh” when you hear it wasn’t done.

Why wasn’t it done? Dan Didio came on board DC afterthe book was written and paid for and cancelled it as Xena television run had ended and “it wasn’t in their best interest.”

Moving on.

It’s was a 48-page prestige style book with Eduardo Barreto on art. Here’s a page but you can go and read the script and read more here.

Today is Lucy Lawless’ birthday and I have declared her an honorary Kick-ass DC woman. Here’s some video showing her playing Wonder Woman in the animated feature based on Darwyn Cooke’s The New Frontier.

Xena and Gabrielle by Stjepan Sejic

Done as a variant of issue #2 cover of the Dynamite comic series in 2007. Amazing. Did you guess whose birthday it is today?
