"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

Howard the Duck Hates Women (<--Clickbait)

Continuing my year-long experiment to only buy comics with at least one female creator.  This week has some great comics I can buy, but some of my favorite comics I can't, and quite a few of them!


Yep:
  • Coffin Hill 17 Writer: Caitlin Kittredge -- This continues to be a badass book.
  • Convergence Nightwing Oracle 1 Writer: Gail Simone Art: Jan Duursema -- Thanks to the @LCSValkyries for the recommend.
  • Convergence Batgirl #1 Writer: Alisa Kwitney -- Love Kwitney! Thanks to the @LCSValkyries for the recommend.
  • Saga 27 Art: Fiona Staples -- Duh.
  • Southern Cross 2 Writer: Becky Cloonan -- One of my fave new comics.
  • The Surface 2 Colorist:Jordie Bellaire -- Still onboard with this one, and a perfect example of a book I wouldn't have found if it weren't for this experiment, and seeking out work by Bellaire
  • Captain Marvel 14 Writer: Kelly Sue DeConnick -- Double-duh.
  • Max Ride First Flight Writer: Marguerite Bennett -- Another great example of the experiment working in my favor. Can't wait to check this out.
  • Updated: Astro City 22: Originally I had this on the "nope" pile--but I was corrected by none other than Busiek himself--Wendy Broome is one of the colorists! Yay!

Nope:
  • Rebels 1 Cover: Tula Lotay   Colorist Jordie Bellaire
    • This one is a special exception: I could buy it per my experiment rules, but I continue to refuse to buy comics written by Brian Wood, even when he's working with some of my favorite people in Lotay and Bellaire
  • Abe Sapien 22: Continuing pain, and knowledge that I'll likely cheat and buy the trade after my experiment is over.
  • Sleepy Hollow Origins 1: The show is a campy pleasure, so I'm sorry I'm missing out. 
  • Astro City 022: Sigh.
  • Jupiter's Circle 001 (Mark Millar)
  • Nameless 003 (Grant Morrison)
  • ODY-C 004 (Fraction)
  • Convergence The Question 001 (Greg Rucka). Sad there are no women working on this book, since I love Montoya so much. 
  • Rat Queens 010
  • Darth Vader 004
  • Howard the Duck 002: Twelve people working on this book. All dudes.
