  1. The Women of DC Comics Discuss Their Passion for Creating

    I wasn't able to attend DC Comics' "Women of DC" Panel at New York Comic Con but I'm so glad they brought together Babs Tarr, Gail Simone, Marguerite Bennett, Caitlin Kittredge, Meredith Finch, Amanda Conner, Becky Cloonan, and Amanda Salmons for a talk. Here's a few more words they added after the fact.

  2. The Team Behind The New Batgirl Comic Talk Internet Villains And Gendered Expectations

    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. We had the chance to sit down with the creative team behind the comic at NYCC, and talk about the reception to their first issue, their new approach to Babs, and where she's going next.

We though that was certainly enough of a timely event to share the fruits of our New York Comic Con roundtable interview with Kent Osborne, AT's head of story, and Jessica DiCicco, the voice of Flame Princess.
