Woo! Better late than never folks!  Also, last COVER SOLICITS of 2010.  Go nuts!

Here are the “rules“.

And if you’d like to see the full March 2011 Marvel solicits head over to CBR.

There’s a lot to like here, also a lot to hate…maybe because most everything has Captain America spooge on it…


X-Factor 217. This is actually a new book Marvel is doing called Giant Boobs McGhee Times Three.  Guess what it’s about.  Yup, BOOBS.

Deadpool Corps 12 (Liefeld Variant). I mean there are SO many things to talk about but I think I’m going to focus on: IS THAT SUPPOSED TO BE A FUCKING DOG?!  IN WHAT UNIVERSE IS THAT A DOG? IS THAT A PERSON DRESSED UP IN A DOG SUIT?  MAYBE IT’S A REAL DOG DRESSED UP IN A PERSON’S DOG SUIT? OMG I DO NOT KNOW WHAT IS HAPPENING AND I AM SO AFRAID…

Better late than never!

Here are the “rules“.

And if you’d like to see the full March 2011 DC solicits head over to CBR.

There’s a lot to like here…and very little to snark on.  I am pleased!

Batwoman 2. Wow. I sense a contender for best cover of 2011.  I love how it’s beautiful and haunting but also really is telling a story…one I’m anxious to read.

Batman Streets of Gotham 21. Wow…this is Nguyen so it’s beautiful and he’s really making that new costume work (which is pretty difficult) but…haha…he kind of looks like “WOLVERINE BATMAN!”.  Which is both awesome and hilarious to consider.

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.

Thanks!

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!
