Did someone ask for a Clark/Lois fix? And if not, why not?! Lois <3
Frank Quitely’s cover for All-Star Superman #3

Ironically… Lois didn’t really do much with her powers the whole chapter.She was just being fought over by Sampson and Atlas.

I’d give anything for FQ to do a Lois Lane mini… written by Mindy Newell (‘Lois Lane: When It Rains, God Is Crying’).

If someone is enjoying themselves then who the fuck cares if they can answer how many times Jean Grey has died or debate whether DC should be publishing Before Watchmen and causing Angry Beard Man more angriness? And judging them on how they look? Get out. Who gets to say who is a real geek and who isn’t? Why on earth does it matter?! HULK SMASH.

My god, there are women in this!!

In the last couple of weeks there has been a slew of articles about the subject of “women in comics” that range from calling out “hot” women that supposedly pretend to be into “geek culture”, to telling us that the phrase “women in comics” is passée because the battle has been won, and to other articles taking the depressing line that superhero comics will never change.…I’ve long argued that “women in comics” is no new movement, and that women have been both fans and creators of comics - including male-targeted action strips - since the very beginning. While in an ideal world it would be nice to talk about comic fans and comic creators and know that women were immediately included in that, the fact remains that without a picture or name to my words, the default setting for me as both a comics reader and as a comics journalist is male. When Dalia Messick and June Mills both intruded into the world of action comics back in 1940 and ‘41, both women changed their name to a less obviously female pseudonym. While many women had had great success in the daily and weekly newspaper strips in the decades before, women creating action stories were seen as trespassing on male territory. So it was that Dale Messick brought us Brenda Starr, and Tarpé Mills brought us Miss Fury.
