Three years ago this month DC Comics was being, rightfully, raked over the coals due to their lack of female creators in the launch of the new 52. The past week or so has DC expand the ranks of female writers to seven. Joining Gail Simone, Ann Nocenti and Amanda Conner and Marguerite Bennett who was previously announced as one of the co-writers on Earth 2: World’s End are Becky Cloonan, who was announced as the writer on the upcoming Gotham Academy, Meredith Finch, the new writer on Wonder Woman and today, novelist and i09 contributor Genevieve Valentine who will be taking over Catwoman in October (Nocenti is launching a new Klarion book). Here’s a look at the cover art by Jae Lee.

The announcements are not over. Expect another one later this week that will bring a female artist to a familiar book.

Have an awesome Powergirl shot taken by Debshots, Tumbles! I’m so happy with how this costume came out. There are some things I need to fix, but they are rather minor. Just going to get buffer and be super intimidating all the time. 

Inspiration right here. <3Maybe I’ll finally make a Peej…

WonderWoman is super chill to her fans

it’s about goddamn time I’m seeing how compassionate Wonder Woman is on this goddamn site

I AM HERE FOR WONDER WOMAN PLAYING POKEMON!

This always makes me angry because that’s not Wonder Woman playing Pokemon, it’s Big Barda. Like, I understand not knowing every character (there are a lot of them and it’s hard to keep up), but like…don’t post her as an example on a Wonder Woman post because Big Barda is ALSO awesome, but she’s not Wonder Woman.
