I’ve got another article up today on Comics Alliance, and this time around, it’s a gallery of comics’ most ass-kicking female characters.
Like, say, la RÃ©sistance‘s Mademoiselle Marie:
An article on “Kickass Women in Comics” is pretty much mandatory for a comics lifestyle site, but when lead blogger Laura Hudson approached me about doing the gallery, I thought it might be fun to try to take things in a different direction than you normally get, avoiding obvious picks like Wonder Woman and Storm in favor throwing the spotlight on some lesser-known–but far more brutal–characters.
Of course, there are a couple of old favorites in there, and it wouldn’t be an article by me if it didn’t have a little Jack Kirby, a little GI Joe and a kick to the face, so click on through and check it out. And then come back for a special bonus, my first, highly unsafe for work choice of an image to represent Tulip O’Hare!
