Hey everyone, over the holiday weekend Jezebel ran part two of my 20 Favorite Female Comics Creators of 2010…so please check it out and comment there if you haven’t already on CSBG!

Thanks and I hope you’re all getting a bit of a holiday break!

Cass Cain vs Shiva in Batgirl #25

DC Women Kicking Ass has been running a fantastic series of posts spotlighting the top moments from her poll last month for “most memorable moments for the women of the DCU” and in anticipation of upcoming voting for the top moments of the last 75 years of DC Comics.

It’s a great idea to spotlight these moments in such a way and with the guest writers on board – it’s quite a sight – so far comics badasses Greg Rucka, Gail Simone, Phil Jimenez, Mike Madrid and Bryan Q. Miller among other great writers and bloggers have contributed.

It’s a rare treat to see creators writing passionately about these characters and moments.

As of today we’re on moment #11, and you should really check out the series.  I’d say you should take a look because yours truly wrote about moment #10 – the defeat of Shiva by Cassandra Cain in Batgirl #25 – but with talents like Rucka, Simone, and Miller on board, well, I think we all know who the A-listers are! 😉

But I was honored to particpate and urge you to read about all these wonderful women and wonderful moments.

Head on over to Comics Should Be Good and check out the latest She Has No Head! – a look at part two of my 20 Favorite Female Comics Creators!

Kate Beaton's sassy and surly Wonder Woman

Tags: , ,

Well, make that PAGE of the week.  And if you think I’m having trouble editing myself, know that I could have easily scanned pretty much the entire issue of Marvel’s Strange Tales II #3 and put it up for contention.  Great, great issue.  Kate Beaton knocked it out of the park (twice!) in her funny pieces, and everyone else brought their A game as well…but I couldn’t resist this page from Eduardo Medeiros’ piece (with an assist by Judy Leheup).  I tip my hat to you sir…awesome stuff.

Easy win this week for Marvel’s Strange Tales II #3.  A bunch of hilarious giant headed Ivan Brunetti superheroes at the gym (and Spider-Man playing raquetball!) who can beat that?  Nobody, that’s who!

Then please head over to DC Women Kicking Ass right now to take this survey.


That’s right, for my 20 Favorite Female Comics Creators of 2010, part one post, Jezebel has reprinted the article. Woo!

Part two will be up on Jezebel next Monday (as well as on CSBG via my She Has No Head! column, as usual at noon eastern).

So check it out everyone…as I’m such a huge fan of Jezebel this is very cool…in fact I’m trying not to squee myself out of my chair.

And thanks for the opportunity Jezebel!

It’s Episode 004!  

Click to listen!

Inside this episode! An advance review of 12 Gauge Comics’ Magus #1 featuring art from phenomenal artist Rebekah Isaacs, who last was seen penciling Brian Wood’s DV8 Gods & Monsters Mini-Series.  A review of Batgirl #16 – is Batgirl’s burgeoning (but so far pretty lame) Rogue’s Gallery hurting her book…or is Steph being her own worst enemy enough?  For our hot topic this week, a discussion of the much tweeted and blogged about comment by Paul Levitz regarding women and superheroes in his three-part interview with Nathan Wilson for The Comics Journal.  And a discussion of what you can do as a fan (for starters – read Ragnell’s letter to current DC EIC Bob Harras – and write your own)!  Do it via regular mail, not email, as regular mail in a pile on one’s desk seems to be harder to ignore than email.  Plus everyone’s picks of the week!

This is, yet again, a bit of a cheat as it’s actually four panels…but in order to get the joke/feel I think you need them all.  This is from Brian Michael Bendis and Stuart Immonen’s New Avengers #7, which was filled with hilarious bits this week, including this excerpt which is about the Avengers talking about getting a paycheck and specifically Spider-Man realizing he can’t get one because he’s the only one that still has a secret identity and that the government can’t issue him a check.  I DO love Bendis’ Spider-Man…it always makes me think I should actually be reading Spider-Man.  Look at that gorgeous Stuart Immonen art…so fucking good!
