3 Chicks Review Comics – Episode 037



Inside this episode! We have an advance review of Brian K. Vaughan and Fiona Staples Saga #1 from Image, as well as a review of Grace Randolph and Russell Dauterman’s Supurbia #1 from Boom! Instead of an interview or hot topic this week, we have a “Magical Question Bonus Round!” in which we answer questions that many of you sent in via twitter.  There’s no chick of the week this week, because the magical question bonus round ran long, but come back in two weeks for more chick of the week and hopefully a great creator interview.

Apologies in advance for the audio quality in this episode – we continue to have some technical difficulties – despite me buying a brand new F$&*ing headset.

Speaking of pull lists, add Daredevil if you liked the trade and Samnee is rotating art with Rivera.

great episode! the audio was way better than the last episode; Kelly, your voice was a great volume but instead Sue was really hard to hear, she was so faint! but no garbled audio or sound cutting out or anything like the past few times.

thanks for the Glory shout-outs!!! <3 <3

i still stand by my "sup, ladies?" being a legitimate question, and i'm disappointed you didn't address it on the show. ;)

OMG! An early shout out!!!! Thx :)

Sue IS faint on this one, but I kinda like it. Super close Kelly and super far away Sue.

And I really enjoyed the Magical Question Bonus Round.

Great episode as usual Kelly. Loooove the chemistry and laughter between you and DC Women Kicking Ass.

You need to pitch the Luke Cage on an all heroine team NOW-it’s perfect. I would read every damn issue. And I agree that Misty Knight needs to be on the team.

Thanks for another episode. I agree that Sue had some volume issues in this cast. Had to keep changing the volume when the speaker switched from Sue to Kelly and back, but I guess that just makes it interactive entertainment. : )

Also I see the silent x-23 comic you mentioned just came out. I found the art in there tied in quite well with Kelly’s excellent “No it’s not equal” column – Phil Noto drew a female comic character nude in almost half the comic and yet it felt (at least to me) a lot less objectifying and less offensive than a great many comics that feature (nominally) clothed characters.

Kelly, have you ever heard of the ’70s short-lived feminist soap opera All That Glitters? It was set in a world where the traditional male/female roles were reversed. I was 13 when it aired and my local station played it in the morning so I only saw an episode or two. (It occurred to me when you mentioned the matriarchal novel you’d read.)

Seriously Keith–I gotta check that out. It sounds like an interesting concept that should get remade.

The tokenism of heroines is something that always stood out to me when I was a kid in the 70s and 80s sucking up media (Wonder Woman, Miss Piggy, Daisy Duke, Princess Leia, Scarlett, Smurfette, Teela, etc.) I remember watching the Dungeons & Dragons cartoon and being all excited that there was two girls on the team.

My big idea for the DCnU is that one of the 52 Earths needs to be a role-reversal earth, not just in the sex of the characters (although that would be interesting too-like that issue of the 52 title) but in attitudes and how men and women are portrayed.

Part satire, but part making a point.
