She Has No Head! – World Domination (Or Something)

Well, world domination may be a bit excessive, but all in all the news coming out of NYCC (and some that came before NYCC) was incredibly positive. Hard to argue with such a killer week of news.  Let’s start with some cool stuff that actually happened last week, prior to NYCC.

EDIT: Just to be clear, since people are going nuts in the comments. This post is SPECIFICALLY about the news that was announced this weekend at NYCC 2013. While I talk generally about Marvel and DC and their approach to “women in comics” the catalyst is all the NEW THINGS that were announced this weekend. To summarize: yes, DC has some lady-led comics right now (more in fact than Marvel) but short of the Stephanie Brown announcement they made ZERO exciting moves on the “women in comics” front this weekend. So, yeah, that’s gonna skew what I’m talking about. Try not to cry.

CLICK HERE TO LISTEN, DOWNLOAD, AND/OR SUBSCRIBE TO ITUNES NOW.

Inside this episode! We have an advance review of Jeremy Whitley and Emily Martin’s Princeless #1 (from the second mini-series coming in February – pre-order now!) and Kelly Sue DeConnick and Stephano Caselli’s Avengers Assemble #10.  Our interview with Renae De Liz seems to have fallen through – but please go check out her Kickstarter for a fantastic Peter Pan Adaptation, which is in its final days and already super successful!  For our hot topic we discuss Gail Simone leaving Batgirl, and possibly all of DC, and what these continued bad decisions mean for us as DC readers. Chick of the Week, for a variety of reasons (including super appropriate timing) is Karen Berger. We take a few minutes to promote some stuff we’re up to, Sue talks about the Toys For Tots contest she’s running on DC Women Kicking Ass full of insanely awesome prizes.  Sue is also being featured on the Bleeding Cool “Personality of 2012″ poll – we’re split on whether it’s a good thing or not…so vote…or don’t…? We’re not sure! Kelly reminds people that The Girl Who Would Be King is available for sale digitally on Amazon (only $2.99!) and limited edition hardbacks and swag are available directly through Kelly (email her at: 1979semifinalist[at]gmail[dot]com), but if you want your books before the holidays – you must order today – Monday 12/17/12!

3 Chicks Review Comics – Episode 040

Hey! It’s our 40th episode!

CLICK HERE TO LISTEN, DOWNLOAD, AND/OR SUBSCRIBE TO ITUNES NOW.

Inside this episode! We review Justin Gray, Jimmy Palmiotti, and Amanda Conner’s digital release Ame-Comi Wonder Woman #1 with wonderful colors by Paul Mounts; Jeff Lemire and Mikel Janin’s Justice League Dark #9. We then have an oversized installment talking with writer Kelly Sue DeConnick about her upcoming project Captain Marvel as well as her reboot of Ghost for Dark Horse with Phil Noto, and an upcoming creator owned project with Emma Rios! We also geek out about The Avengers movie, speculate on The Dark Knight Rises, and talk about writing for different artists! For Chick of the Week this week I choose the uber-talented (and delightful) Stephanie Hans, who I’ve now had the pleasure of working with twice and can’t even express how wonderful it has been. I get all tongue-tied even. We also chat about the Alan Scott reveal and Hunger Games and how closet (and not so closet) racism and homophobia still depress the crap out of us.
