Today and all month long, we are celebrating Women’s History Month with titles from DC Comics about women, by women! Collected in this sweepstakes are female-led titles DC COMICS BOMBSHELLS written by Margueritte Bennett, drawn by Marguerite Sauvage, Laura Braga, and Mirka Andolfo, BIRDS OF PREY written by Gail Simone, and the first issue of FEMALE FURIES, written by Cecil Castellucci and drawn by Adriana Melo. What a lineup!
Did you know that the DC COMICS BOMBSHELLS line was launched by female creator Marguerite Bennett? The run has been noted for its female core cast, but also the portrayal of LGBT characters and depicting of the nuances of female friendship, family and relationships, rather than stereotypes. She reflects on this, saying “If you write stories that tell folks that queer people can live without shame, they just might grow up believing it”.
Meanwhile, BIRDS OF PREY scribe Gail Simone has been note d as being one of the most influential women in the comic book industry and for raising awareness of the representation of women in comics. She tirelessly advocates the creation of female characters that are equals to male characters, a practice in which Simone herself has been recognized for engaging.
