3 Chicks Review Comics – Episode 028



Inside this episode! Sue and I review Brian Michael Bendis and Sara Pichelli’s Ultimate Comics Spider-Man #3 and J.H. Williams III and W. Haden Blackman’s Batwoman #2.  For our hot topic we have special guest star Jennifer K. Stuller, author of Ink-Stained Amazons and programming director of Geek Girl Con joining us to discuss the success of Geek Girl Con and a topic near and dear to all three of our feminist-y hearts – Wonder Woman’s origin! Chick of the week is Huntress – with a brand new mini-series and a non-midriff baring costume…what’s not to love?

Glad you’re still keeping this going.


You can hide, but we’ll find you anyway! Yay! 3 Chicks is back! (Miss you, Maddy.)

i miss Maddy too!

another, often overlooked, hero solely raised by her awesome mom: Shadoweyes!!! ;D

Good to see you guys back.

If you are looking for more of a Spidey Fix then I guess Slott’s “Big Time” run from issue 648 of Amazing Spider-man is a good place to start. Or you can wait after the conclusion of ” Spider- Island” but for me it ‘s been the Marvel event of the year. The new ongoing “Avenging Spider-man” seems to be a Marvel Team up like title. Also recommended are the trades of the first run of Ultimate Spider-man. They were some consistently good comics.

Thanks for all the support folks. :)

Shadoweyes is definitely a “raised by her mom superhero”! Good call!

Maddy will be always missed. :(

@Maverickman874: Thanks for the Spidey suggestions.

Look for my new fanfic story: Batman And Commissioner Gordon Awkwardly Discuss Their Sex Lives. (And it is at that point that Oracle very much regrets her decision to bug the GCPD roof and invests in GALLONS of BRAIN BLEACH.)

Sue, you woulda loved NYCC. The audience was so positive and packed full of all kinds of people. A really great show (even if the emphasis was on video games and not comics!).

I enjoyed the Hot Topic this week. Interesting discussion. At NYCC, I met the most intense Wonder Woman super fan. He stood in front of my table for nearly an hour and recounted his favorite Wonder Woman moments with this awesome gleam in his eye. It made me wanna run out and read every Wonder Woman comic from the past 30 years!

Any news on whether or no t the podcast is actually up on iTunes? :(

Esther: I listen to it through iTunes, so I don’t know why it wouldn’t be there. I hit the “subscribe via ITunes” button on the Podomatic page and it downloads every new episode as it becomes available…so I don’t know why you’re not able to get it that way.

When my new episodes didn’t seem to be downloading (as I said above) it was because I hadn’t listened to the episodes via iTunes recently and so iTunes assumed I didn’t want to keep downloading.

Have you tried the subscribe button? Does it not work? What happens?

I actually did try that link but. It keeps saying that the address is invalid. Do you know how to get it directly from iTunes, because It does give me the option but it won’t direct me to there. :( The Xtml site just doesn’t work on the podomatic site. :(

The subscribe button just doesn’t work. I have no idea why. It keeps saying that it doesnt recognize the “xml” link and says that it’s just invalid. :(
