Why is Batgirl #45 the way it is Buy it Buy it Buy it Buy it

Batgirl #45 is out and I’m going to gush for a while. If you don’t want a happy reviewer reviewing happily, you are in the wrong place my friend. The angry website is just over that way! ->

Batgirl has quietly become the most progressive mainstream comic. DC itself may or may not deserve praise for this, the current team behind Batgirl certainly do. The team consists of writers Cameron Stewart and Brenden Fletcher, artist & cover artist Babs Tarr, colourist Serge LaPointe, and letterer Steve Wands. If you know them or follow them on Twitter you should give them kudos for the current Batgirl run.

Importance of Body Representation in Comics Not every woman is slim, has large breasts and blonde hair...

Witcher 3 & Equal Opportunity Bottoms

At long last the oft-delayed, sprawling, 100-plus-hour epic role playing game from CD Projekt, The Witcher 3, is out.

You get the idea; I waste a lot of time in these games doing side quests and collecting things. Which is both good and bad; I certainly get my money’s worth out of open RPGs, but it can take me a while to complete them.

Feminism, Feminists And Joss Whedon

#NotAllMen but a certain group of people, made up of almost all men, are rabidly anti-feminist. Feminism is a word that people seem to react to and yet consistently misunderstand, the dictionary defines feminism as “A movement for granting women political, social, and economic equality with men.” Which shows that feminism is about equality; women need to catch up with all the benefits that just being born male has bestowed on 49% of the earth’s population for hundreds of years. Feminism then is a reasonable goal and yet every time an excuse presents itself a small percentage love to blame feminism for anything they can. Lots of red lights on the morning commute? Feminism. Ice cream melting? Feminism. Movie director leaves Twitter? Feminism.
