"The women of Bikini Kill let guitarist Billy Karren be in their feminist punk band, but only if he's willing to just "do some shit." Being a feminist dude is like that. We may ask you to "do some shit" for the band, but you don't get to be Kathleen Hannah."--@heatherurehere

Avengers: Millennium -- All Dudes, All the Time

Continuing my year-long experiment to only buy comics with a woman artist or writer...

Buy Pile:
  • Lady Killer #4: Joelle Jones continues to knock this one out of the park, I bet.
  • Names #8: Cover: Celia Calle
  • Hinterkind #17 Cover: Marguerite Sauvage 
  • No Mercy #1 Writer: Alex De Campi   Art: Carla Speed McNeil  -- Love De Campi's work on the Grindhouse comics, so can't wait to see what she does with the real world.
  • Dark Tower Drawing Three House Cards #2 Writer:Robin Furth -- This is definitely a guilty pleasure, seeing Furth continue to expand King's rich world. At what point to the comics eclipse the books? 
If I Can Find the Variant:
  • Cluster #3 Variant Cover colorist Jordie Bellaire -- Hopefully I can find this variant, although it's becoming clear that, during this experiment, variants might not work out; ruins the flow if I can't find an ish.
  • Uncanny Inhumans Variant cover by Siya Oum -- I'm new to Oum's work, but I hope I can find it!
Nope Pile:

  • Hellboy And The B.P.R.D. #5: This one continues to hurt. Some of my favorite characters of all time.
  • Millennium #3: I loved this show, even though I didn't watch X-Files. This one stings.
  • Black Science #13: The art is just fantastic in this book--sorry I've had to give it up.
  • The Dying and the Dead #2: Hickman is one of my favorite writers. I'm sure I'm missing out here.
  • Nailbiter #11: I'm cheating on this one, because my partner buys it every week.
  • Southern Bastards #8: I've read every ish of Scalped, so missing out on Aaron's writing is difficult.
  • Kanan Last Padawan #1: I'm not a big Star Wars fan, but I've been liking the Rebels show, and the new Star Wars comics. 
  • Empire of the Dead Act Three #1: Not a huge zombie fan, but this looks so fun and fucked up. Sorry I'm missing it. Also, Andrea Mutti is a guy, which took me a while to figure out. Sorry Andrea!
  • Avengers Millenium 001: Comic Vine lists 17 creators for this comic, given the variants and editors. All. Men. It's like they're not even trying.
