My first comment on Google + and yes, I saw it last week. I loved it and will see it again when it comes out if I can. I got to meet the director and star and gave them both Happy CDs :).

Wha? Can't they make up their minds? Why all the secrecy? Write some good stories, and it won't matter if she's wearing pants or not.

Interesting list. I've read 21 of these books. (And if a listing is for an entire series, I didn't count it as read unless I read the entire series.) Many of the books on this list are on my "to read" list.

Yet another powerful and distressing example of the disdain and contempt many of the creators of comic books feel toward women. I have a rather lengthy comment at the end of this post.
Too Busy Thinking About My Comics. It's not the reading of comic books that can threaten friendships and derail marriages. It's the unintended, casual babbling about comic books that does that...

This is a great article about the use of women and people of color in the two big comic events by Marvel and DC this year. As a resident superheroine advocate, I'm so glad that there are others who find this disturbing. Lots of good comments too, that spawn additional conversation.
