she has no head!

You are currently browsing the archive for the she has no head! category.

I wrote a new piece over on CSBG about how disturbing I find DC’s (very pretty) Bombshell Variant Covers for the month of June – after only a handful of hours we’re up to over 100 comments because people really have problems when you criticize mainstream superhero work and marketing…even though many agree it’s backwards and ill-thought out regularly.

Anyway, posting here two images to show how well we’re doing already on Derailment Bingo and Sexist Bingo. Enjoy!

I’m trying to get better about cross posting content again. In that vein…here is a cross post to today’s hopefully super fun SHE HAS NO HEAD! which is all about creating a comics time capsule!

Time Capsule Compliation2

Other posts I’ve done recently that you might have missed?

This bit about how the new Brian Wood and Olivier Coipel X-MEN is ALL I’VE EVER WANTED!

And I did some pieces on LIT REACTOR:

This one about the resurgence of “choose your own adventure” stories (in comics and elsewhere)

This one about why people should stop hassling me to read Game of Thrones and just let me enjoy the television show (for now).

Of course if you’ve been hiding out and neglected to notice that I borderline broke people’s brains with the fact that I hated Man of Steel (read that here), here is a rather unorthodox Superman “Book vs Film” comparison on Lit Reactor.

I also did this one about the awesomeness that is Dustin Nguyen and Derek Fridolf’s Batman: Lil’ Gotham.



I also had the pleasure of recently giving 4 or more stars to all of the following comics:

Hawkeye #12

Quantum & Woody #1

Adventure Time: Candy Capers #1

Daredevil: Dark Nights #2

Suicide Risk #3

The Wake #2



Whew. Okay. That’s it for now!!!

Thanks everyone, I hope you find something enjoyable to read!

Here’s some things that have been going on while I’ve been too crazy busy to blog (that all changes tomorrow though).

I wrote about the Dredd movie for Lit Reactor: 10 Reasons Why Dredd Is The Best Comic Book Movie of 2012 You DIDN’T See

I wrote about Wonder Woman the CW’s in limbo ‘Amazon’: 5 Ways Looking At Comics Can Help The CW’s ‘Amazon’

On She Has No Head! – I talked about Faith Erin Hicks collected The Adventures of Superhero Girl and “8 Great Female Led Comics You Should Be Reading.”

I wrote reviews for some really great comics: Hawkeye #8, Adventure Time #13, and Captain Marvel #10.

I wrote reviews for some pretty good comics: Powers: Bureau #1, Avengers Arena #4, and Uncanny X-Men #1.

And at least one not so great comic: Justice League of America #1.


Whew.  Alright, I’ll try to stay more on top of things this month…swearsies.

A new She Has No Head! is up – one in which I explore why Kieron Gillen and Jamie McKelvie’s Young Avengers #1 is the future of superhero comics – and the future is indeed, bright!

Check it out!

An all-new She Has No Head! is up, kids. And I really like this one, so check it out.

I get to rave about the idea of Brian Wood’s upcoming X-Men title while bitching about everything that was wrong with Marvel Divas. Oh, Marvel, how far you’ve come! I feel like a proud parent! :)

Kris Anka’s take on Brian Wood’s new X-Men!

A new She Has No Head! is up.  That’s right, kids, it’s my “Bests (and a few worsts) of 2012”

Head on over to check it out.  And here’s a hint…it’s Hawkeye/Saga-rific!  :)

New She Has No Head! today, kids.

And as the column today will tell you, I’m doing THIS new thing…cause you know…I don’t already have enough to do.

Other things you should know, She Has No Head! is going to have to be on hiatus for August…I just have to focus on THE GIRL WHO WOULD BE KING stuff (sorry!) but it’ll be back full swing in September. I hope Sue and I will still get an episode or two of 3 Chicks up in August, but no promises!

Also, I DO promise to get you the last two days of “30 Days Of Superheroines”…I swear it’s gonna happen. This week even! :)


It’s been a while now since I engaged in a full on rant. Stop on by She Has No Head! to see what all of the fuss is about this week.

Here’s a hint:

Hey, kids!

So I’ve been really sick, which is why you got no 3 Chicks and no She Has No Head! today. But I hope to be back with a new column next week, and 3 Chicks will be back soon as well.

In the meantime, here are some things I did prior to getting sick (and while sick). Enjoy!

Last week for She Has No Head! I wrote about the Avengers and the superheroine movies I’d like to see now that Joss Whedon has shown me that superheroines can be done right on the big screen. I even casted them – what more could you want?

I also put up a detailed Joss Whedon piece on Lit Reactor last week called “Can Joss Whedon Save The Superheroine?”

If you have any interest in writing, catch up on my Long & Winding Road pieces over on Lit Reactor, because Part III goes up next week!

I also participated in a Wonder Woman Roundtable over at Hooded Utilitarian. There are some amazing pieces up there, and here’s mine (which is less amazing): Wonder Woman: It’s In Her DNA (although Adam correctly pointed out that I should have called it “Wonder Woman makes a nice foot cushion”  I’m thinking of renaming my entire site that.

I only did two reviews for CBR last week thanks to illness but here they are in case you missed them:

The Walking Dead #97

Uncanny X-Force #25

Also, if you haven’t picked up Womanthology or Chicks Dig Comics yet (both of which I’m in!) then you should do that now. Greg Burgas has a nice review up of Womanthology…Greg doesn’t pull punches so you know he’s being straight with you. I’ve rarely been mentioned in the great reviews that have been coming in for Chicks Dig Comics, no real surprise there considering the company I’m in, but mentioned my piece, which was an awesome moment.

I’m also WAY behind on Drunk Cover Solicits. But I should be able to do it this weekend…do not despair!

Also, I may be having some very cool original art to show you guys this week…so stay tuned.
