An Interview with the Batgirl of the SDCC panels
dcwomenkickingass: There were lots of stories that came out of SDCC this year, but the one that has caught the attention of the comics community was a woman who dressed up as Batgirl to ask questions about female characters and creators at several DC Comics’ panels. I first became aware of her questions while following the live feeds of Newsarama and CBR. If you read this blog you know I have...
Dancing Thoughts: So, wait a second. →
kendrapg: itswalky: DC said they have fewer female creators now because they’re hiring based on quality, not gender. DC made sure to put Rob Liefeld on a book. Man. That’s like a kick in the nuts. …er, you know what I mean. I’m not saying this point’s wrong, exactly, but it’s not the first time…
Websnark: Sexism, Courage, and Heroism: truth to... →
websnark: We are on the far side of the San Diego ComiCon. This is a con where DC’s creators have had their most direct exposure to their current fanbase’s reactions to the New 52. In particular, they’ve heard loud and clear that the ongoing lack of gender parity both in the comics and behind the scenes…

kateordie: Let me start this off by saying that I don’t read comics. Wait, hold on. That’s not right. I don’t read DC or Marvel comics. Hang on, that’s not true either. I don’t read any current series put out by the big two. There we go. Now, does that mean I don’t like comics? No. Not at all. I love…

Aspire is reviewed on YouTube →
Random news/update time. First the bad news. Aspire #3, that was supposed to be released Wednesday, is temporarily delayed. Sorry everyone. There is lots of good news though. Firstly; we got our first YouTube posted review of Aspire by a new “nerdcaster” in his series Brain Food. Yay! Secondly; I will be running the Movement Magazine booth at Tampa Comic Con on Sunday, August 7th. If...

Girls Read Comics Too > Women in Comics –... →
With projects like Womanthology getting their full funding in less than 2 days time, and the concern (still) about female involvement in the DC relaunch, the interest in women working in comics is high. We’ve put together a list of 63 creators (which I am sure will grow) who we will be featuring on the blog. 3-4 posts a week for however long it takes us. Some of the names on the list are...

Aspire and Womanthology Yee Haw!!!!
Many people have been asking about when Aspire #3 is coming out. As of right now it is scheduled to come out on July 27th. I’ve said this a thousand time already but I’m going to say it again; thank you so much to everyone that has bought Aspire. Earlier this week while at Jacksonville’s artwalk I encountered some parents that told me how much it meant to them to see a comic...

dcwomenkickingass: Last week, I noted with sadness that Friends of Lulu, an organization created in 1994 to promote female comic creators and readers had essentially died. The organization has faced troubles over the past few years due to tax and management issues. As someone who spends a lot of time talking…
A Modern Sexual-Assault Tale [tw]
Man: Hello, I'd like to report a mugging.
Officer: A mugging, eh? Where did it take place?
Man: I was walking by 21st and Dundritch Street and a man pulled out a gun and said, "Give me all your money."
Officer: And did you?
Man: Yes, I co-operated.
Officer: So you willingly gave the man your money without fighting back, calling for help or trying to escape?
Man: Well, yes, but I was terrified. I thought he was going to kill me!
Officer: Mmm. But you did co-operate with him. And I've been informed that you're quite a philanthropist, too.
Man: I give to charity, yes.
Officer: So you like to give money away. You make a habit of giving money away.
Man: What does that have to do with this situation?
Officer: You knowingly walked down Dundritch Street in your suit when everyone knows you like to give away money, and then you didn't fight back. It sounds like you gave money to someone, but now you're having after-donation regret. Tell me, do you really want to ruin his life because of your mistake?
Man: This is ridiculous!
Officer: This is a rape analogy. This is what women face every single day when they try to bring their rapists to justice.
Man: Fuck the patriarchy.
