    Awesome tech-savvy gal vs. internet asshole. Relatable.

    Batgirl issue #36, the second issue since the much-talked-about creative reboot on the title, comes out tomorrow, and we're pretty stoked about it.

  3. Batgirl, a Parable for Online Culture

    It’s been a rough few years for Barbara Gordon since her New 52 reboot in 2011, spearheaded by Gail Simone. Her re-imagined outfit, complete with detachable cape, gives Babs a punky edge, making use of YouTube know-how.

    A little hope for humanity for your Friday.

    About a week and a half ago we shared fantasy author Peter V. Brett's story of raising a geeky daughter in a world where girls and women are far too often excluded from superhero merch.

    For my birthday a few months ago, my buddy Matt gave me Justice League: Axis of Villains, a superhero board game by DC Comics and game maker Wonder Forge. “It say ages 8 and up,” he tells me, “but I read the rules. Cassie’s smart. She can handle it if you play together.”
