3 Chicks Review Comics is a podcast featuring me (naturally!) with fellow female comics lovers and bloggers Sue from DC Women Kicking Ass, and Maddy from When Fangirls Attack!. Tune in weekly to CSBG Tuesdays at 2pm as we review comics, and discuss hot topics of the week.
In our second episode…! Was J.H. Williams III’s Batwoman #0 worth the wait…or should we just keep waiting for Batwoman #1 instead? And what’s up with Batman and his silly disguises? Is this really the way the world’s greatest detective detects? Seems unlikely! And while we’re at it…who didn’t tell Bruce that Kate Kane is Batwoman? Someone’s in trouble at the Batcave! What happened to Marc Andreyko’s Manhunter Face Off trade we were supposed to get last week? Low pre-orders apparently means it’s not going to come out as a trade, but it’s still something worth reading. Young Justice premiered on Cartoon Network this weekend didn’t have a single line of female dialogue for about 99.9% of the hour long premiere. Some dudes seem to get mad when we talk about this…but facts are facts and is it really not a bit odd? Plus, everyone’s pick of the week!*
In addition to the blogs above, you can also follow us all on twitter as well: Kelly, Maddy, and Sue.
Special thanks to Nik Furious for our awesome 3 Chicks theme song.

You go all your life thinking of your parents as these crushing protective monsters with infinite power over you, and then there’s a day when you turn round, catching them unexpectedly, and they’re just weak, nervous people trying to get by with each other.
