Cover Art Cavalcade:
DC Wants Your Daughters To Read Comics

Um...my face is up here.

Gotham Sirens #3
Somebody check the new Previews catalog for me. Does this thing come on mudflaps?

Secret Six #12
How do you off-set the fact that your superhero comic is written by a woman? Hire this guy to do your cover art.

Supergirl #44
Please tell me this is a flashback comic where we re-visit the crappy art styles of the 90's. It would still be ugly, but at least it'd be appropriate.

Alright, in the interest of fairness, here's two DC books that don't alienate their intended audience.


Wait, this one was already canceled.

Supergirl: Cosmic Adventures In The 8th Grade #6
...And this one just wrapped up its limited run. Well, there's always J.H. Williams and Greg Rucka's upcoming run on Detective Comics. While their take on the new Batwoman looks to be li'l much for the li'l ones, maybe we should just be thankful for well-written, well-rounded female characters...wherever and whenever they appear. Still, is it so tough to keep a couple of good books for girls on the stands? Marvel's been taking a loss on Runaways since the git-go, but at least it helps to lessen the PR damage done with sh*t like Marvel Divas.
